Efficient Numerical Algorithm for Cascaded Raman Fiber Lasers Using a Spectral Method

Over recent decades, fiber Raman lasers (FRLs) have received much attention from researchers and have become a challenge for them both numerically and experimentally. The equations governing the FRLs are in the form of a first-order system of nonlinear two-point boundary-value ordinary differential equations. In this paper, an algorithm for solving this system of differential equations using a spectral method, namely Chebyshev pseudospectral method, is presented in detail and then numerical simulations are performed. The main advantage of the spectral methods is in their optimality in achieving high accuracy by using fewer degrees of freedom under suitable conditions. It is shown that the proposed spectral method in combination with the Newton method results in a considerable reduction in the size of the discretized problem and in the computational effort to achieve high accuracy. In this paper, a new approach for constructing an initial approximate solution for the Newton iteration is also presented.


Understanding the plasmonic properties of dewetting formed Ag nanoparticles for large area solar cell applications
Gunendi, M. Can; TANYELİ, Irem; Akguc, Gursoy B.; Bek, Alpan; Turan, Raşit; Gulseren, Oguz (The Optical Society, 2013-07-29)
The effects of substrates with technological interest for solar cell industry are examined on the plasmonic properties of Ag nanoparticles fabricated by dewetting technique. Both surface matching (boundary element) and propagator (finite difference time domain) methods are used in numerical simulations to describe plasmonic properties and to interpret experimental data. The uncertainty on the locations of nanoparticles by the substrate in experiment is explained by the simulations of various Ag nanoparticle...
Efficient computation of 2D point-spread functions for diffractive lenses
Ayazgok, Suleyman; Öktem, Sevinç Figen (The Optical Society, 2020-01-10)
Diffractive lenses, such as Fresnel zone plates, photon sieves, and their modified versions, have been of significant recent interest in high-resolution imaging applications. As the advent of diffractive lens systems with different configurations expands, the fast and accurate simulation of these systems becomes crucial for both the design and image reconstruction tasks. Here we present a fast and accurate method for computing the 2D point-spread function (PSF) of an arbitrary diffractive lens. The method i...
Strong oscillations in the nondipole corrections to the photoelectron angular distributions from C-60
Toffolı, Danıele; Decleva, Piero (American Physical Society (APS), 2010-06-25)
Nondipolar corrections to the photoelectron angular distributions from C-60 have been calculated for the highest occupied molecular orbital ( HOMO), HOMO-1, and HOMO-2 photoemission bands. The computational method employed takes advantage of a parallel algorithm that uses a multicentric expansion of bound- and scattering-wave functions and a density-functional theory one-particle Hamiltonian. First-order nondipolar asymmetry parameters have been calculated from thresholds of up to 160 eV of photon energy. S...

Karaosmanoğlu, Barışcan; Tuygar, Emre; Topçuoğlu, Ulaş; Ergül, Özgür Salih (Wiley, 2019-08-01)
We present new types of nanocavities to improve the absorption of solar cells for energy harvesting in wide frequency ranges of the optical spectrum. Using a full‐wave approach, as opposed to the commonly used ray‐based modeling of the light, antenna‐inspired cavities with horn shapes are proposed and introduced. The effectiveness of the designed cavities is demonstrated in comparison to the conventional textures involving inverted pyramids and nanocones. Highly accurate numerical results show that solar‐ce...
Antenna-based microwave absorber for imaging in the frequencies of 1.8, 2.45, and 5.8 GHz
We propose a microwave imaging structure with GSM, ISM, Wi-Fi, and WiMAX operating frequencies at 1.80, 2.45, and 5.80 GHz, respectively. The suggested structure is based on a microwave antenna-inspired absorber with cavities in resonator layers. Our study, which is validated using simulation and experimental techniques, deals with the absorption of the incident electromagnetic waves at 1.80, 2.45, and 5.80 GHz for creating the image when radio frequency microwave is employed. The above-mentioned three oper...
