    Recent studies at optical and radio wavelengths have shown that interstellar clouds have density structures on scales smaller than 1 pc. These have been identified in form of temporal variations or differences in column density within small angular separations. Despite the number of detections...

    A polymer-based, Cytop planar photonic crystal waveguide (PPCW) was designed for guiding terahertz radiation. Results indicate that the propagation and coupling losses in the 0.2–1.1 THz range are relatively small for a sheetlike thickness design. Spectral analysis of the transmission...

    Abstract. Photosensitive lead germanate glass optical waveguides have been grown by pulsed laser deposition. The deposited waveguides are photosensitive over a broad ultraviolet spectral range (325-193 nm). Positive and/or negative refractive index changes have been observed, depending on the...

    Single-mode polymeric channel waveguides were fabricated using simple direct ultraviolet photolithography process. A cross-linkable negative tone epoxy NANOTM SU-8 2000 polymer was used. Once exposed to ultraviolet light through a photomask, the waveguide stripes were obtained upon development....

    Amorphous As2S8 chalcogenide glass is shown to undergo changes in the refractive index upon exposure to ultraviolet light. This phenomenon is employed to fabricate an As2S8 stripe waveguide, which is shown to be an effective guided mode device with a useful switching functionality based on the...
