    An investigation of electronic 1/f noise in ultrasmall devices and systems is presented, focused on nanoscale engineering of electronic devices for low phase noise. The investigation is based on the quantum 1/f formulas. Nanotechnology raises new questions of electronic noise, since fluctuations are more important in smaller devices. Based on the quantum 1/f noise theory, we find that in a certain... View full abstract»

    We are facing a slowing down of the evolution of microprocessor performance. This is part of a more general slowing down which is indicated by, among others, the fact that IBM has recently given up its PC market. By applying the principles of physics, we discuss some characteristic features of the current situation and consider if some exotic new technologies such as nanoelectronics or quantum com...

    We describe a design strategy for high-power solid-state laser oscillators using local correction of thermally induced optical distortion. This offers a potential for scaling lowest order Gaussian mode solid-state laser oscillators directly to high average power, e.g. >100 kW, while using a relatively simple near confocal ring resonator. The waste heat is necessarily produced in the gain region; h... View full abstract»
