The influence of the graphene loss on the surface PLSs is also discussed. Based on the stable propagation of surface PLSs, we find that the light propagation can be switched from the array boundary to the inner graphene sheets by reducing the incident power or increasing the chemical potential of graphene.

Numerical simulation results show that the effective index and the propagation loss of the proposed waveguide undergo substantial changes upon the VO_{2} transition from insulating to metallic phase. The effective index and the propagation loss variations of the proposed waveguide are then maximized by optimizing waveguide dimensions. It is shown that 0.226 change in the effective index (Δn_{ eff} = 0.226) and 30 dB/μm change in the propagation loss (Δl_{dB} = 30 dB/μm) are achievable using the optimum dimensions. These extraordinary variations in waveguide properties recommend the proposed waveguide as an excellent candidate for optical active device realization. To investigate these applications, performance parameters of the proposed waveguide are further studied in terms of the transition speed and the power consumption. In these studies, the VO_{2} phase transition is assumed to be actuated by applying an electric field. Two examples of optical active devices based on the proposed waveguide are then presented: an electro-absorption modulator and a 1 × 2 directional coupler optical switch. Finite-difference time-domain simulation of the proposed devices shows very high extinction ratio of 21 dB along the ultrasmall propagation length of 1 μm, for the proposed electro-absorption modulator, and high extinction ratios of ∼18.5 dB and ∼8.6 dB in off- and on-state of the proposed 1 × 2 switch, which has very small length of ∼6 μm. Further simulations also show interesting properties of the proposed devices in terms of the power consumption, insertion loss, and bandwidth.]]>351430203028825<![CDATA[An Optical MEMS Accelerometer Based on a Two-Dimensional Photonic Crystal Add-Drop Filter]]>$-$156 to 156 g, optical sensitivity of 0.0756 nm/g, and first resonance frequency of 12.9 kHz.

In our models, ground motion intensity data are used to estimate the cable repair rate, and a graph of a triangulated irregular network is used to represent the Earth's surface. We formulate this optimization problem as a multi-objective shortest path problem and solve it by a variant of the label setting algorithm. Two approximate algorithms, an interval-partition-based label-setting algorithm and an evolutionary algorithm, are also presented as methods of computational cost reduction for large-scale cases, and their results are compared. The solution leads to a Pareto front or an approximate Pareto front that enables us to choose the path and protection of the cable to either minimize cost for a given risk level or minimize risk for a given budget.]]>3514306030742200<![CDATA[Silicon-Based SERS Substrates Fabricated by Electroless Etching]]>–11 M.

This expression provides great potential in further performance analysis and system optimization. In addition, tight, closed-form upper and lower bounds on the ABEP are derived, by using bounds on the Gaussian $Q$ -function. These bounds are in simpler form than existing results and are much more efficient in numerical evaluations. Further simplifications of these bounds are performed and invertible ABEP expressions are given. Via numerical comparisons, these invertible ABEP expressions are shown to be accurate approximations within a wide range of transmit power of interest and thus provide efficient error prediction methods. The diversity gain is easily obtained using the invertible ABEP expressions, which is related to the ratio of the equivalent beam radius to the pointing error displacement standard jitter at the receiver. Moreover, we show explicitly how the ABEP depends on different system parameters.]]>351430823091922<![CDATA[Hypersensitive and Tunable Terahertz Wave Switch Based on Non-Bragg Structures Filled with Liquid Crystals]]>351430923098370
