    Burst contention occurs when attempting to transmit several optical bursts at the time into the same core router output port. This is a shortcoming of the Optical Burst Switching (OBS) networks and for this reason it has been challenging to implement the OBS mode into the transport networks so...

    The spectrum of I2 is examined anew in the wavelength region 520-640 nm, where discrete absorption in the B-X transition is prominent. The spectrum is recorded with high quantitative precision at moderate resolution (0.1 nm) and is analyzed by least-squares spectral simulation, yielding the B-X...

    Hyperspectral radiative transfer simulations are a versatile tool in remote sensing but can pose a major computational burden. We describe a simple method to construct hyperspectral simulation results by using only a small spectral subsample of the simulated wavelength range, thus leading to...

    We propose that a hyperlens can be used for photolithography to generate deep subwavelength arbitrary patterns from diffraction-limited masks. Numerical simulation shows that half-pitch resolution down to 20 nm is possible from a mask with 280 nm period at working wavelength 375 nm. We also...

    Microlithography simulation is now a compulsory engineering tool, coping with the gap between exposure wavelength and the resolution required by Moore's Law. Rigorous simulation has been a key factor in the development and verification of today's resolution enhancement technologies, and has...

    The authors report the initial results from a holographic lithography technique using extreme ultraviolet (EUV) radiation. This approach removes the need for complex EUV reflective masks and optics, replacing them with a binary, nanopatterned transmission mask. Computer generated holograms were...

    The dependence of the lateral resolution of an interference microscope on the distance between the phase step and the focal plane of the objective of the microscope object channel is analyzed. The results of measurements at several wavelengths, obtained by numerical modeling over a wide range of...
