    All-polymer thermo-optic (TO) waveguide switch arrays at 650-nm wavelength based on novel organic-inorganic grafting poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) materials are successfully designed and fabricated. The thermal stability and optical properties of the sol-gel materials are studied. The TO coefficient of organic-inorganic grafting PMMA core material is obtained as -1.65×104 �...

    A high peak power (>MW), passively Q-switched Yb:YAG/Cr:YAG micro-laser end-pumped by fiber-coupled 120-W QCW LDs (Repetition rate <; 100 Hz) is developed. The convex output coupler with a curvature of -2 m successfully enlarges the fundamental mode size in the micro-laser cavity, and the output pulse energy increases to 3.6 mJ at a Cr:YAG initial transmission of 89% without optical damage. ...

  • Extending the 1-D Hovel Model for Coherent and Incoherent Back Reflections in Homojunction Solar Cells

    In this paper we extend the analytical drift-diffusion model, or Hovel model, to model the electrical characteristics of solar cells incorporating a back mirror. We use a compact summation approach to derive modified optical generation functions in Homojunction solar cells, considering both coherent and incoherent reflections from the back reflector. These modified generation functions are then us... View full abstract»

    We theoretically and experimentally study a hexagonal multiphase Talbot array illuminator based on periodically poled LiNbO3 crystal, in which phase shift is electro-optically tunable by controlling an external electric field. Numerical simulation revealed the effects on intensity distribution of diffraction field from array duty cycle, external electric field and diffraction distance. ... View full abstract»

  • Design of a Wavelength Selective Medium by Graded Index Photonic Crystals

    In this paper, a novel technique for spatial wavelength division using graded index photonic crystals (GRIN PCs) is proposed. The designed GRIN PC structure with hyperbolic-secant refractive index profile at a fixed frequency generates spatial shifts in the longitudinal direction with respect to different incident wavelengths so that distinct path trajectories are followed by propagating beams thr...

  • Pulsed Gating With Balanced InGaAs/InP Single Photon Avalanche Diodes

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (600 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We demonstrate balanced InGaAs/InP single photon avalanche diodes operated in gated mode for a data transmission rate of up to 20 MHz. The common-mode signal cancellation realized with the balanced configuration enabled detection of small avalanche pulses. For a laser repletion rate of 20 MHz at 240 K, the dark count probability for a photon detection efficiency of 13% is View full abstract»

  • Time-Domain Analysis of Third-Order Quantum-Dot-Based Laterally-Coupled Distributed Feedback Lasers Using Travelling-Wave Approach

    In this paper, we present a time-domain (TD) coupled model suitable to investigate high-order λ/4 phase-shift grating quantum-dot (QD) based laterally-coupled distributed feedback (LC-DFB) laser. First, by integrating the Streifer's coefficients, we include the effects of radiation and evanescent modes into the TD coupled wave equations, and hence we investigate the effect of the radiation ...
