    The authors fabricate rolled up microtubes consisting of Si/SiOx on Si substrate and analyze the possibility to use them as a refractometric sensor. An aqueous sugar solution is inserted into the microtube, which leads to a change in refractive index and, as a result, to a detectable spectral...

    Narrowband optical filters are used in many applications to separate two signals of closely spaced frequencies. The filter's performance is a function of its throughput and rejection. For weak signals, the filter should provide both high throughput of the wanted signal and high rejection of the...

    In the present paper, we have investigated two characteristics of three different waveguides employed in arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) in passive optical networks (PON) where rates of variations are processed. Both the thermal and the spectral effects are taken into account. The waveguides are...

    In this article we perform a numerical study of microwave imaging reflectometry (MIR) and compare it with conventional reflectometry system. As an approximation to the reflections by real plasma fluctuations, a corrugated wheel is used. As far as general performance is concerned, our simulations...
