ECE 552 Lecture 2: Review of Maxwell's Equations
25 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Vladimir M. Shalaev
Lines on Paper
11 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Joshua LaForge
Students will learn how scientists use a process called X-ray diffraction to figure out the structure of things that are too small to see such as atoms, molecules, and crystal structures.This lab will help students understand how light is bent into different directions as it interacts with small...
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. ...
Bismide Semiconductors: Revolutionising Telecom Lasers
19 Oct 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad Usman, Christopher A Broderick, Eoin P O\'reilly
Today’s telecomm lasers are plagued with Auger-related losses, which significantly reduce their efficiency and make device cooling essential. We are proposing a radical change in the laser technology by developing a new class of materials, bismide semiconductors. These novel nanomaterials...
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...
LASERS: Basic Principles and Applications
25 Mar 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Alessia Polemi
This is a lecture prepared within the course Electronic Materials (Junior level). It provides an explanation of the lasers basic principles and an overview of possible applications
can anyone please help me by providing self consistent schrodinger poisson’s equation for 1.55um Quantum dot Laser?
Closed | Responses: 0
I am working on Quantum Dot Laser. I need to know what is the appropriate Schrodinger Poisson’s equation for 1.55um QD Laser. I need to solve Schrodinger Poisson’s equation. I am...

Describes properties of a GaAs/AlGaAs DBR laser
Gavriel Salvendy 2nd International Symposium on Frontiers in Industrial Engineering: Laser and Photonic Systems and Innovations for Better Quality of Life
20 Aug 2012 | | Contributor(s):: gary cheng, Shimon Y. Nof, Andrew M Weiner
This symposium's particular emphasis will be to identify research frontiers where industrial engineering has the potential to contribute to lasers, optics and photonics applications in manufacturing, health care, and security and communications.
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
28 Jul 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
23 May 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...
