Electronics from the Bottom Up seeks to bring a new perspective to electronic devices – one that is designed to help realize the opportunities that nanotechnology presents.

2010 NanoBiophotonics Summer School @ UIUC Lecture 2  2D/3D Fourier transforms & Electromagnetic fields/ LorentzDrude model
25 Sep 2010   Contributor(s):: Gabriel Popescu
So far, we have discussed Fourier transformations involving onedimensional functions. Of course, in studying imaging, the conceptmust be generalized to 2D and 3D functions. For example, diffraction and 2D image formation are treated efficiently via 2D Fouriertransforms, while light scattering...

2010 NanoBiophotonics Summer School @ UIUC Lecture 4  Gaussian beam propagation  Elastic light scattering  Dynamic light scattering
25 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...
