In the last decade, the surface plasmon resonance (SPR) has become a very sensitive technique for real-time detection in many application areas. Considering the fiber optic concept and the important needs for analyzing biomolecular reactions through automated and miniaturized components, fiber optic sensors based on the SPR technique are becoming an important choice in the field of sensing. In ...
Non-Equilibrium Quantum Well Populations and Optical Characteristics of III-Nitride Lasers and Light-Emitting Diodes

Ostendo Technologies, Inc.
COMSOL-based Ostendo’s Optoelectronic Device Modeling Software (ODMS) has been updated to include effects of non-equilibrium QW populations in semiconductor light-emitting and laser diodes. III-nitride light emitters with different levels of polarity have been compared as an illustrative example of ODMS performance. Modeling proved that high intra-QW recombination rates in III-nitride light ...

Silicon solar cells still require cost reduction and improved efficiency to become more competitive. New architectures can provide a significant increase in efficiency, but today most of the approaches need additional processing steps. In this context, laser processing offers a unique way to replace technological steps like photolithography that is not compatible with the requirements of the ...

The accurate estimate of values of electromagnetic parameters are essential to determine the final circuit speeds and functionality for designing of high-performance integrated circuits and integrated circuits packaging. In this paper, a new quasi-TEM capacitance and inductance analysis of multiconductor multilayer interconnects is successfully demonstrated using the finite element method (FEM) ...

We demonstrate the accuracy of the Finite Element Method (FEM) to characterize an arbitrarily shaped crossed-grating in a multilayered stack illuminated by an arbitrarily polarized plane wave under oblique incidence. To our knowledge, this is the first time that 3D diffraction efficiencies are calculated using the FEM. The method has been validated using classical cases found in the literature. ...

Mit Hilfe des Softwareprogramms COMSOL zur Modellierung physikalischer Vorgänge wurden die Polarisationseigenschaften einer mikrostrukturierten Singlemodefaser untersucht. Ausgangspunkt der Simulationen waren experimentelle Untersuchungen, nach denen diese Faser eine ungewöhnlich starke Doppelbrechung aufwies. Die Doppelbrechung der Faser und damit ihre Fähigkeit zur Polarisationserhaltung ...

Since the invention of laser sources, understanding the interaction between the laser and biological tissues is a subject of great importance because of their medical applications in particular for diagnostic purposes. They recently found a growing interest in the sector of the arboriculture to check the fruits quality in a non-destructive way. In this work, we study the interaction between the ...

Evanescent-wave optical waveguide is widely used as sensing platform for chemical/biological sensor applications. Our research group contributed to on-chip IR sensor technology and made recent progress in miniaturizing such devices utilizing quantum cascade lasers (QCL) in combination with planar GaAs/Al0.2Ga0.8As waveguides. Furthermore progress is reported toward microfabricated Mid-infrared ...

Electron interferometry using the Aharonov-Bohm (AB) effect finds many applications in industrial areas such as future nanocomputer technologies, physical random number generators, electron phase microscopy and holography, to name just a few. The presence of a confined magnetic field surrounded by the interferometer arms, as originally proposed by Aharonov and Bohm is however a source of ...

The silicon substrate has a significant effect on the inductance parameter of a lossy interconnect line on an integrated circuit. It is essential to take this into account in determining the transmission line electrical parameters. In this paper, a new quasi-TEM capacitance and inductance analysis of multiconductor multilayer interconnects is successfully demonstrated using the finite element ...
