There has been a growing interest in optical parametric amplifiers (OPA) for light generation and amplification in because of the possibility for arbitrary operation wavelength and wideband tenability . PCFs are of particular interest in such nonlinear optics applications because of the enhanced light confinement and the resultant high nonlinearity (γ) achievable with air-cladded designs. ...

High-power couplers (both coaxial and ridge waveguide type) at UHF frequencies are presently under development for the Low Energy High Intensity Proton Accelerator (LEHIPA) project and 1 GeV proton accelerator at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre. Ridge waveguide coupler transitions the WR2300 waveguide input to a smaller size ridge waveguide. An iris is used in the end wall/side wall of the ...

Phase gratings are used in many applications owing to their high transmission and thus higher diffraction efficiencies. COMSOL is based on finite element modeling and is chosen for 2 reasons; firstly, because it can handle complex 2-D and 3-D geometries and secondly, it can handle the vector nature of these structures. The objective of the design is to compare the results of a commonly used ...

This session addresses some common challenges in electromagnetic modeling and simulation. The introductory presentation will cover how to pick and choose between a large number of available formulations in three separate modules including the AC/DC Module, RF Module, and Wave Optics Module. Examples are discussed from wave propagation modeling to low frequency modeling. Topics covered ...

This paper presents techniques for modeling annealed proton exchange (APE) and reverse proton exchange (RPE) waveguides in periodically poled lithium niobate for application to optical frequency conversion. A combination of time-dependent diffusion modeling and electromagnetic mode analysis using the RF module are used to predict the relationship between the poling period and the second harmonic ...

A wide variety of near-field optical phenomena such as apertureless near-field scanning microscopy (ANSM) at optical and terahertz (THz) regimes and surface enhanced Raman scattering relies on the electric field enhancement at the end of a sharp tip. Achieving and controlling this electric field enhancement is a key challenge for a wide range of applications such as surface modification, data ...

Plasmons, i.e. the collective oscillations of electrons in a metallic nano-structure, lead to strong light scattering, absorption and an enhancement of the local electromagnetic field. In this work, the local electric-field enhancement in a system of dielectric nanoparticles placed very near to a metallic substrate is studied and discussed. Finite-element numerical simulations were used in ...

The microstrip line is widely used as the planar transmission line in microwave integrated circuits and high speed interconnecting buses. In this paper, we use COMSOL Multiphysics® to study multiconductor microstrip systems on microwave integrated circuits. We specifically illustrate the modeling of open four and five conductors systems. We successfully demonstrated the calculation of the ...

Plasmonic nanoparticles have received increased interest due to their numerous potential applications in the field of optics and optoelectronics. Currently such metallic nanoparticles are applied in semiconductor devices, such as light emitting diodes (LEDs) and solar cells. The optical behaviour of a single plasmonic nanoparticle is can be easily described with several analytic or semianalytic ...

Metamaterial [1, 2] is an artificially structured material where it’s electrical (ϵ), magnetic (μ) and its refraction properties (n) are simultaneously negative in narrow frequency band. Currently, metamaterials are being widely used in microwave and radio frequencies as devices [3, 4] like filter, coupler, antenna etc. However, the applicability of metamaterial as High Energy Microwave (HEM) ...
