Light emission at 1.54 mu m from an Er-doped amorphous silicon nitride layer coupled to photonic crystal resonators at cryogenic and room temperatures and under varying optical pump powers has been studied. The results demonstrate that small mode volume, high quality factor resonators enhance Er absorption and emission rates at the cavity resonance. Time resolved measurements give 11- to 17-fold Purcell enhancement of spontaneous emission at cryogenic temperatures, and 2.4-fold enhancement at room temperature. Resonances exhibit linewidth narrowing with pump power, signifying absorption bleaching and partial inversion of the Er ions cryogenic temperatures. We estimate that 31% of Er ions are excited at the highest pump power. (C) 2010 Optical Society of America

Light emission at 1.54 mu m from an Er-doped amorphous silicon nitride layer coupled to photonic crystal resonators and plamonic arrays is studied. We observe the cavity resonances at cryogenic and room temperatures and under varying optical pump powers. The results demonstrate that small mode volume, high quality factor resonators enhance Er absorption rates dramatically at the cavity resonance. Photonic crystal cavity resonances exhibit linewidth narrowing with pump power at cryogenic temperatures, signif...
Surface-enhanced Raman scattering spectroscopy via gold nanostars
Nalbant Esentürk, Emren (Wiley, 2009-01-01)
Anisotropic metallic nanoparticles (NPs) have unique optical properties, which lend them to applications such as surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectroscopy. Star-shaped gold (Au) NPs were prepared in aqueous solutions by the seed-mediated growth method and tested for Raman enhancement using 2-mercaptopyridine (2-MPy) and crystal violet (CV) probing molecules. For both molecules, the SERS activity of the nanostars was notably stronger than that of the spherical Au NPs of similar size. The Raman en...
NEMATIC-SMECTIC A TRICRITICAL PHASE-TRANSITION IN BINARY MIXTURE OF LIQUID-CRYSTALS
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (1992-10-01)
The nematic-smectic A tricritical phase transition has been studied in binary mixtures of liquid crystals. By making the analogy between the "quasi-binary" fluid mixture and binary mixture of liquid crystals, we adapt the thermodynamic model for fluid mixtures due to Griffiths to the case of mixtures of liquid crystals.
Pipe flow of a magnetizable fluid in rectangular cavities under magnetic sources
Senel, P.; Tezer, Münevver (2017-10-01)
In this paper, the fully developed flow of an electrically non-conducting, viscous, incompressible, magnetizable fluid is investigated in rectangular pipes with square or rectangular cross-sections under the effect of spatially varying magnetic field. Magnetic field is generated by multiple wires carrying electric current that pass below and above along the pipe. Thus, the problem is reduced to the 2D flow of a magnetizable fluid in the cross-section of the pipe (cavity). Governing equations are solved in t...
