We perform spatially dependent tuning of a GaInP photonic crystal cavity using a continuous wave violet laser. Local tuning is obtained by laser heating of the photonic crystal membrane. The cavity resonance shift is measured for different pump positions and for two ambient gases: He and N-2. We find that the width of the temperature profile induced in the membrane depends strongly on the thermal conductivity of the ambient gas. For He gas, a narrow spatial width of the temperature profile of 2.8 mu m is predicted and verified in experiment. (C) 2015 AIP Publishing LLC.


Dispersion of coupled mode-gap cavities
LİAN, Jin; SOKOLOV, Sergei; Yüce, Emre; COMBRİÉ, Sylvain; De Rossi, Alfredo; Mosk, Allard P. (2015-10-01)
The dispersion of a coupled resonator optical waveguide made of photonic crystal mode-gap cavities is pronouncedly asymmetric. This asymmetry cannot be explained by the standard tight binding model. We show that the fundamental cause of the asymmetric dispersion is the inherent dispersive cavity mode profile; i.e., the mode wave function depends on the driving frequency, not the eigenfrequency. This occurs because the photonic crystal cavity resonances do not form a complete set. We formulate a dispersive m...
Streamwise oscillations of a cylinder beneath a free surface: Free surface effects on vortex formation modes
Bozkaya, Canan; Mironova, L. A.; Gubanov, O. I. (Elsevier BV, 2011-06-15)
A computational study of a viscous incompressible two-fluid model with an oscillating cylinder is investigated at a Reynolds number of 200 and at a dimensionless displacement amplitude of A = 0.13 and for the dimensionless forcing cylinder oscillation frequency-to-natural vortex shedding frequency ratios, f/f(0) = 1.5, 2.5, 3.5. Specifically, two-dimensional flow past a circular cylinder subject to forced in-line oscillations beneath a free surface is considered. The method is based on a finite volume discr...
Image segmentation and smoothing via partial differential equations
Özmen, Neslihan; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Department of Scientific Computing (2009)
In image processing, partial differential equation (PDE) based approaches have been extensively used in segmentation and smoothing applications. The Perona-Malik nonlinear diffusion model is the first PDE based method used in the image smoothing tasks. Afterwards the classical Mumford-Shah model was developed to solve both image segmentation and smoothing problems and it is based on the minimization of an energy functional. It has numerous application areas such as edge detection, motion analysis, medical i...
Canonical contact structures on some singularity links
Bhupal, Mohan Lal (Wiley, 2014-06-01)
We identify the canonical contact structure on the link of a simple elliptic or cusp singularity by drawing a Legendrian handlebody diagram of one of its Stein fillings. We also show that the canonical contact structure on the link of a numerically Gorenstein surface singularity is trivial considered as a real plane bundle.
Intelligent analysis of chaos roughness in regularity of walk for a two legged robot
Kaygisiz, BH; Erkmen, İsmet; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref (Elsevier BV, 2006-07-01)
We describe in this paper a new approach to the identification of the chaotic boundaries of regular (periodic and quasiperiodic) regions in nonlinear systems, using cell mapping equipped with measures of fractal dimension and rough sets. The proposed fractal-rough set approach considers a state space divided into cells where cell trajectories are determined using cell to cell mapping technique. All image cells in the state space, equipped with their individual fractal dimension are then classified as being ...
