‘Metamaterial’ is one of the most recent topic in several areas of science and technology due to its vast potential in various applications. These are artificially fabricated materials which exhibit negative permittivity and/or negative permeability. The unusual electromagnetic properties of metamaterial has opened more opportunities for better antenna design to surmount the limitations of ...
Modelling Ultra-short Pulse Laser Ablation of Dielectric Materials Using multiple Rate Equations - new

Institute of Machine Tools and Manufacturing, ETH Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
Ultrafast lasers are widely applied in micromachining, material science and physics. In industry, picosecond lasers are becoming more and more established. For pulse lengths shorter than the electron-phonon coupling time, heat affected zones are negligible. Thermally sensitive materials can be processed using ultrashort pulse laser radiation. Multi-component materials and poorly absorbing ...
Improving Detection Sensitivity for Nanoscale Targets Through Combined Photonic and Plasmonic Techniques
G. Zhang, Y. Zhao
Clemson University, Clemson, SC, USA
Photonic technique such as the whispering gallery mode (WGM) is often used for detection of small particles like bacteria and viruses. It offers good detection sensitivity and is advantageous over other detection techniques because the detection can be label free. However, the detection sensitivity may not be sufficient when the size of the detection target is in nanoscale. To change this, we ...

A dielectric multilayer structure, with a grating profile on the surface layer, can couple light into a strongly confined surface wave, known as a Bloch surface wave. These surface modes can be used to design bio-sensors. The corrugated surface structure also enables azimuthal angular excitation of Bloch waves. In this paper, we exploit azimuthal interrogation to design highly sensitive Bloch ...

Adaptive optics control using liquid filled membrane lens is based on the principle of deflection of polymeric membrane. Controlled deflection in membrane leads to controlled focal length. This enhances the focus tuning ability of the system at the same time make optical system compact and economical. The adjustment of fluid pressure helps to toggle between different field of view at the same ...

The optical fiber communication has been popular topics besides robot study nowadays. In the process of the Dense Wave-Length Division Multiplexing (DWDM) study, the dispersion compensate for the traditional optical fiber is difficult to solve for long distance transport information. It is hard to solve this problem by experimental study on photonic crystals with high negative dispersion ...

Surface Plasmon Polaritions (SPPs), as electromagnetic waves localized at the surface of a metal, enjoy the unique properties to confine energy into sub-wavelength scale, which is beneficial for future photonic integration. However, the severe absorption caused by the metal influences the propagation distance greatly. Actually, SPPs loss can be compensated by optical parametric amplification in ...

Nearly seven lakh Indians die of cancer, while over 10 lakh are newly diagnosed with some form of the disease every year. Surgical resection is not always feasible in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. Microwave Coagulation Therapy (MCT) has been used as an alternative to resection and its efficiency has been evaluated in tissue microwave irradiation from a dipole antenna causes water ...

SOI (Silicon on Insulator) technology utilizes silicon components on SiO2 layer. Propagating electric field distribution in a SOI waveguide is called mode of the waveguide. Photonic gratings are formed by etching grooves on the top of a waveguide. Gratings can operate in two directions. They can guide incident beam into a waveguide or a waveguide mode out of the structure. We study the ...

Forced airflow cooling of a Volume Bragg Grating heated by a laser beam was investigated by means of simulation with COMSOL Multiphysics®. In addition to air cooling of unrestricted airflow, a case of airflow directed by limiting glass plates was investigated. A number of temperature distributions and thermal deformations were obtained in simulations for different rates of airflows. Simulations ...
