1. Design and modeling of an ultra-compact 2x2 nanomechanical plasmonic switch
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 5/4/2016
Author: Vladimir A Aksyuk
Abstract: A 2x2 Mach-Zehnder optical switch design with a footprint of 0.5 um x 2.5 um using nanomechanical gap plasmon phase modulators [1] is presented. The extremely small footprint and modest optical loss are enabled by the strong phase modulation of gap p ...

2. Compact Nano-Mechanical Plasmonic Phase Modulators
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 4/1/2015
Authors: Brian Scott Dennis, Michael Haftel, David Czaplewski, Daniel Lopez, Girsh Blumberg, Vladimir A Aksyuk
Abstract: The miniaturization of photonic devices is fundamentally limited by the index of refraction of the constituent materials if light is confined in dielectric nanostructures. By coupling electromagnetic fields to metal‰s free electrons plasmonic devices ...

3. Characterizing a Noninsertable Directional Device Using the NIST Uncertainty Framework
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 6/6/2014
Authors: Jeffrey A Jargon, Dylan F Williams, Paul D Hale, Michael D Janezic
Abstract: We characterize and provide uncertainties for a noninsertable, directional device over a frequency range of 90 to 100 GHz using the NIST Microwave Uncertainty Framework in conjunction with a commercial vector network analyzer. Our device consists of ...

4. Gallium Nitride Nanowires for On-Chip Optical Interconnects on Ex-Situ Substrates
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 1/16/2013
Authors: Matthew David Brubaker, Paul Timothy Blanchard, John B. (John B.) Schlager, Aric Warner Sanders, Alexana Roshko, Shannon M.M. Duff, Jason Gray, Victor M. Bright, Norman A Sanford, Kristine A Bertness
Abstract: In this letter we report on the fabrication, device characteristics, and optical coupling of a two-nanowire device comprising light-emitting diode and photoconductive GaN nanowires. Axial p-n junction GaN nanowires were grown by molecular beam epita ...

5. Low-frequency noise in gallium nitride nanowire mechanical resonators
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 12/7/2012
Authors: Jason Gray, Kristine A Bertness, Norman A Sanford, Charles T. Rogers
Abstract: We report on the low-frequency 1/f (flicker) parameter noise displayed by the resonance frequency and resistance of doubly clamped c-axis gallium nitride nanowire (NW) mechanical resonators. The resonators are electrostatically driven and their mech ...

6. Noncontact measurement of charge carrier lifetime and mobility in GaN nanowires
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 8/27/2012
Authors: Christopher M. Dodson, Patrick Parkinson, Kristine A Bertness, Hannah J Joyce, Laura M Herz, Norman A Sanford, Michael B Johnston
Abstract: The first noncontact photoconductivity measurements of gallium nitride nanowires (NWs) are presented, revealing a high crystallographic and optoelectronic quality achieved by use of catalyst-free molecular beam epitaxy. In comparison with bulk ma ...

7. Optical fiber-coupled cryogenic radiometer with carbon nanotube absorber
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 4/1/2012
Authors: David J Livigni, Nathan A Tomlin, Christopher L Cromer, John H Lehman
Abstract: A cryogenic radiometer was constructed for direct-substitution optical fiber power measurements. The cavity is intended to operate at the 3 K temperature stage of a dilution refrigerator or 4.2 K stage of a liquid cryostat. The optical fiber is remov ...

8. Frequency Characterization of an External-Cavity Quantum Cascade Laser at 4.5 {mu}m using a Frequency Comb
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 1/25/2012
Authors: Kevin O. (Kevin) Knabe, Paul A Williams, Fabrizio Raphael Giorgetta, Chris Armacost, Michael Radunsky, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: We measure the frequency noise spectrum of a free-running external-cavity quantum cascade laser at 4.5 {mu}m through sum frequency generation with a fiber frequency comb.

9. High-Accuracy Photoreceiver Frequency Response Measurements at 1.55 um by Use of a Heterodyne Phase-Locked Loop
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 9/29/2011
Authors: Tasshi Dennis, Paul D Hale
Abstract: We demonstrate a high-accuracy heterodyne measurement system for characterizing the magnitude of the frequency response of high-speed 1.55 µm photoreceivers from 2 MHz to greater than 50 GHz. At measurement frequencies below 2 GHz, we employ a phase- ...

10. Enhanced coupling between light and surface plasmons by nanostructured Fabry-Pérot resonator
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 9/26/2011
Authors: Brian S. Dennis, Vladimir A Aksyuk, Michael Haftel, Stefan T. Koev, Girsh Blumberg
Abstract: It is recognized that surface plasmons (SPs),which can be present on particulate, smooth, or corrugated metallic surfaces, have enormous potential in the fields of novel nano-optical and opto-electronic devices, as well as in spectroscopic, biologic ...
