    Medium- and long-haul, high-speed fiber communication systems are dominated by the need for low optical loss and low dispersion, and these systems require laser diodes and photodiodes that emit and detect at 1.33 and 1.55 μm. InGaAs/GaAs quantum dots enable 1.3 μm wavelengths in GaAs-based lasers for fiber-optic communication. View full abstract»

    The last 15 years have seen enormous changes in consumer electronics technologies, and a great expansion in the variety of devices available at relatively low cost. Entertainment, communication, and computing technologies have tended to merge, and almost everything is "going digital". The last decade and a half has seen the rise of many important new technologies and the demise of many older ones.... View full abstract»

    Light-based signal-processing and control mechanisms open up new capabilities for next-generation phased-array sensors. The focus of this article is on some of the recently developed optical control techniques for sensors, with the underlying active control technology being large area, multipixel, thin-film, liquid-crystal (LC) devices used as polarization-sensitive elements View full abstract»

    The purpose of this note is to demonstrate that it is possible to modify a technique that was originally developed for calculations involving the scattering of electromagnetic waves from diverse-shaped objects and use it in calculations involving integrated-circuit elements. The technique is the “method of moments”, which was previously kept in the domain of researchers and graduate st... View full abstract»
