Resonant cavities with high quality factor and small mode volume provide crucial enhancement of light matter interactions in nanophotonic devices that transport and process classical and quantum information. The production of functional circuits containing many such cavities remains a major challenge, as inevitable imperfections in the fabrication detune the cavities, which strongly affects functionality such as transmission. In photonic crystal waveguides, intrinsic disorder gives rise to high-Q localized resonances through Anderson localization; however their location and resonance frequencies are completely random, which hampers functionality. We present an adaptive holographic method to gain reversible control on these randomly localized modes by locally modifying the refractive index. We show that our method can dynamically form or break highly transmitting necklace states, which is an essential step toward photonic-crystal-based quantum networks and signal processing circuits, as well as slow light applications and fundamental physics.


Performance of discrete dipole approximation for prediction of amplitude and phase of electromagnetic scattering by particles
Ayranci, Isil; Vaillon, Rodolphe; Selçuk, Nevin (2007-01-01)
Electromagnetic scattering provides useful signatures for nonintrusive particle characterization. Scattered wave which carries characteristic information about particles is identified completely by its intensity, polarization state and phase. Recent developments in measurement techniques have enabled measurement of phase of the scattered wave which is a source of additional information about particles. In the present study, accuracy of discrete dipole approximation (DDA) in predicting amplitude and phase of...

Vuckovic, Jelena; Makarova, Maria; Gong, Yiyang; Yerci, Selçuk; Li, Rui; Negro, Luca Dal (null; 2009-01-01)
We demonstrated enhancement of light emission from Er-doped silicon photonic crystal cavities, as well as cavity linewidth narrowing with increasing optical pump power at low temperature-an indication of differential gain in the system.
Free vibration characteristics of a 3d mixed formulation beam element with force-based consistent mass matrix
Soydas, Ozan; Sarıtaş, Afşin (2017-09-01)
In this analytical study, free vibration analyses of a 3d mixed formulation beam element are performed by adopting force-based consistent mass matrix that incorporates shear and rotary inertia effects. The force-based approach takes into account the actual distribution of mass of an element in the derivation of the mass matrix. Moreover, the force-based approach enables accurate determination of free vibration frequencies of members with varying geometry and material distribution without any need for specif...
Adaptive output feedback control with reduced sensitivity to sensor noise
Kutay, Ali Türker; Hovakimyan, N (2003-01-01)
We address adaptive output feedback control of uncertain nonlinear systems with noisy output measurements, in which both the dynamics and the dimension of the regulated system may be unknown, and only the relative degree of the regulated output is assumed to be known. Given a smooth reference trajectory, the problem is to design a controller that forces the system measurement to track it with bounded errors. A recently developed method proposes the use of a linear error observer that estimates the tracking ...
Controlled assemble and microfabrication of zeolite particles on SiO2 substrates for potential biosensor applications
Öztürk, Semra; Turan, Raşit; Akata Kurç, Burcu (2008-12-04)
Zeolite nanoparticles were organized into functional entities on SiO2 substrates and microfabrication technique was tested to form patterns of zeolite nanoparticles on SiO2 using the electron beam lithography (EBL). The effect of different techniques for efficient zeolite assembly on the SiO2 substrates was investigated. For this purpose, three different assembly techniques were tested. The first two methods are spin-coating (SC) and ultrasound aided strong agitation (US) methods, which were tested using ba...
