The all-optical switching figures of merit are reported for the single crystal PTS (polydiacetylene poly (bis para-toluene sulfonate) of 2,4-hexadiyne-1,6 diol). Included are the effects of the absorption mechanisms from linear up to four-photon over the wavelength range 1.2–2.2 μm.

    Multiple perfect transmissions of electromagnetic waves are found in the photonic band gap of the symmetric dielectric heterostructures (SDH) constructed as (AB)nBm(BA)n, where A and B stand for different dielectric materials, and m and n are the repeating numbers of the units. The photonic...

    We have investigated the ring opening of 1,3-cyclohexadiene to form 1,3,5-cis-hexatriene (Z-HT) using optical pulse shaping to enhance multiphoton excitation. A closed-loop learning algorithm was used to search for an optimal spectral phase function, with the effectiveness or fitness of each...

    We demonstrate a novel multiphoton imaging modality based on the detection of four-wave mixing (FWM) from colloidal nanoparticles. This third-order signal is excited and detected in resonance with the ground-state excitonic transition of CdSe/ZnS quantum dots. We measure transversal and axial...

    The problem of exciton light absorption in quasi-two-dimensional inhomogeneous systems in a strong transverse magnetic field H is analyzed. We assume that a random Gaussian field ("white noise") acting separately on an electron and a hole is due to (1) fluctuations in the quantum well thickness...

    The impact of a large negative quantum well gain-to-cavity etalon wavelength detuning on the static and dynamic characteristics of 850 nm InGaAlAs high-speed oxide-confined vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) was investigated. Three distinct lasing regimes were revealed in large...
