    Coupled vertical cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) arrays are an attractive means to increase the coherent output power of VCSELs. Single-mode VCSELs, with output powers greater than 10 mW, would be useful as telecommunication transmitters /spl lambda/=1.3-1.55 μm) or sources for optical interconnects. Commercially available single-mode VCSELs, even at shorter wavelengths /spl lambda/=... View full abstract»

    This paper presents the characteristics of photonic crystal microcavity light sources. Microcavities with dimensions on the scale of the wavelength of light are being extensively investigated due to their ability to exhibit enhanced spontaneous emission, directional output, and single-mode operation. Photonic crystals, which are the optical analog of semiconductors in electronic devices, are capab... View full abstract»

    This article describes the design challenges of BlueTraCTM, a low-cost, low-power radio transceiver, and the usage of mixed-signal/mixed-mode techniques and behavioral modeling with ADVance MS (ADMS) from Mentor Graphics to address and solve them. BlueTraC from Spirea is a Bluetooth 1.1-compliant Class 2 radio transceiver. In addition to all the required RF and analog functions, the chi... View full abstract»

    In this article, we review recent progress in the area of biological macromolecular sensors and we present several research activities aimed at achieving such a device. Here we distinguish sensors from assays - the former describing devices capable of continuous monitoring and real-time detection, the latter describing devices and techniques for analysis of a single sample. We give examples of bot... View full abstract»

    After describing the design of double-stage tapered photodiodes (DSTPs), the optical simulation method was explained in detail. The calculated responsivity takes into account losses linked to materials and technology, and it is obtained by 2-D modal and 3-D-BPM computations. The modeling was validated by measurements, showing a responsivity as high as 0.6 A/W and low polarization dependence, below... View full abstract»
