Photonic Metamaterials: From Linear to Nonlinear Optics
14 Dec 2010   Contributor(s):: Natalia Litchinitser
Metamaterials open unparalleled opportunities for "engineering" previously inaccessible values of refractive indices from positive to nearzero and even negative values, and new avenues for light manipulation. While an enormous progress has been made in the field of linear optics of uniform...

AntiReflection Coating Assignment
30 Nov 2010   Contributor(s):: Alex Small
This is a guided activity for students to study the design of an antireflection coating. The student is first asked to do a simple calculation by hand, to determine the proper thickness for an antireflection coating in a standard situation. The student then uses the nanoHUB tool "PhotonicsRT:...

12 Oct 2010   Contributor(s):: SuA Myong
When looking down on streets of Chicago from the 30th floor of a skyscraper, one would see a high density of cars and people buzzing around all over the place. It would appear as if everyone was everywhere at any given time. When observed at an individual level, however, one would exhibit a...

Nano*High: Xrays, Lasers, and Molecular Movies
27 Jan 2010   Contributor(s):: Roger W. Falcone
Xray imaging is an excellent method to make visible what would normally be invisible  who hasn't had an Xray at the doctor or dentist's office before? At the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, the Advanced Light Source is a gigantic Xray imaging machine. Dr. Roger Falcone discusses Xray...

20 Sep 2010   Contributor(s):: Gabriel Popescu
Often, experiments involve light beams. A light beam can be defined as a distribution of field that fulfills the approximation in Eq. 20,i.e. is characterized by a dominant wave vector component, k(z) >> k(x) , k(y) . A beam is, therefore, the spatial equivalent of quasimonochromaticlight, where...
