- Direct ice detection based on fiber optic sensor architecture. Ikiades, Aristidis A. // Applied Physics Letters;9/3/2007, Vol. 91 Issue 10, p104104
Ice growth on the wings of aircraft affects their aerodynamic performance and handling qualities which change depending on the location of the ice accretion. Ice detection technology has changed little over the last 30 years relying on indirect atmospheric conditions to determine the existence...
- High antimony content GaAs1-zNzâ€“GaAs1-ySby type-II â€œWâ€ structure for long wavelength emission. Rathi, M. K.; Khandekar, A. A.; Song, Xueyan; Babcock, S. E.; Mawst, L. J.; Kuech, T. F. // Journal of Applied Physics;Sep2009, Vol. 106 Issue 6, p063713-1
GaAs1-zNzâ€“GaAs1-ySby type-II â€œWâ€ structures were studied for long wavelength (1300â€“1600 nm) applications. These structures were grown on a GaAs substrate using metal-organic vapor phase epitaxy. The antimony and nitrogen compositions in the pseudomorphic GaAs1-ySby and...
