ECE 552 Lecture 2: Review of Maxwell's Equations
25 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Vladimir M. Shalaev
Laser Filtering, Metamaterials, and Commercializing Through the Lens of the Mythical Person Month
09 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Themos Kallos
In this work we investigate whether optical metamaterials in particular may require more than the typical resources to lead to successful commercialization. We also compare the estimated efforts with other technology commercialization projects of the recent past. ...
Ultrafast Photonic Signal Processing: A Quarter Century Perspective
28 May 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Andrew M Weiner
In this lecture I will begin with a brief introduction to ultrafast optics and specifically to methods permitting shaping of ultrafast laser fields on time scales too fast for direct electronic control. For contrast I will first provide some brief perspective on the state of my research around...
Opportunities of Lasers for Scalable Manufacturing of Solar Energy Devices
21 Aug 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Gary Cheng
Production costs, module conversion efficiencies, and adoption in commercial rooftops continue to be the most critical issues for solar energy technology.The industry continuously seeks technologies that offer scalable and high speed solar device production to replace costly conventional...
In Living Motion: Imaging Cellular Function in Live Tissues
21 Aug 2012 | | Contributor(s):: David D. Nolte
Subcellular motions inside live tissue are sensitive indicators of cellular health and cellular response to applied drugs. Digital holography volumetrically captures these motions in tissue dynamics spectroscopy for live-tissue drug screening.
Shaping Ultrafast Laser Fields for Photonic Signal Processing
06 Jun 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Andrew M Weiner
This talk will begin with a brief general introduction into ultrafast optics and then specifically address the topic of shaping ultrafast laser fields. Because the time scales involved are much too fast for direct application of (opto)electronic modulator technologies, all-optical approaches are...

A Half Century of Nonlinear Optics
22 Mar 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Robert W. Boyd
In this talk, we first present a review of the development of the field of nonlinear optics, and we then survey some areas of recent research including quantum imaging and implications of the ability to control the group velocity of light.
Nano*High: X-rays, Lasers, and Molecular Movies
25 Sep 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Roger W. Falcone
X-ray imaging is an excellent method to make visible what would normally be invisible - who hasn't had an X-ray at the doctor or dentist's office before? At the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, the Advanced Light Source is a gigantic X-ray imaging machine. Dr. Roger Falcone discusses X-ray...
"Ab Initio" Theory of Novel Micro and Nanolasers
out of 5 stars
19 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: A. Douglas Stone
While the laser is one of the most important inventions of the past century and one of the most interesting and controllable non-linear systems in physics, there is surprisingly little predictive theory of lasing properties. Predicting lasing thresholds and output power far above threshold in...
Silicon Photonics: Opportunity Challenges and Recent Results
02 Nov 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Mario Paniccia
The silicon chip has been the mainstay of the electronics industry for the last 40 years and has revolutionized the way the world operates. Today a silicon chip the size of a fingernail contains nearly one billion transistors and has the computing power that only a decade ago would take up an...
Hexagonal Prism Blue Diode Laser Using Whispering Gallery Mode (WGM) Resonances
23 Oct 2007 | | Contributor(s):: sangho kim
Semiconductor lasers have many important applications, including communication technologies, optical storage, printing, and molecular detection. The range of applications could be broadened significantly if the lasers could be made smaller and with lower threshold currents. Today’s in-plane...
