We report on AlGaN grating reflectors for short-wavelength applications, an alternative to conventional distributed Bragg reflectors that are difficult to make in a GaN-based system. An array of air-bridge AlGaN grating reflectors, with a period and filling factor of 430 nm and 0.55, was fabricated through holographic lithography and photoelectrochemical etching. Polarization-dependent microreflectance spectra were measured to confirm their consistency with simulation results. The reflectance measured at 532 nm for transverse-electric polarization was as high as ∼90%. We also found that the spectral range for high reflection correlates with the photonic Bloch band-edge modes.

    We demonstrated the cancellation of the external magnetic field by the nuclear field at one edge of the nuclear polarization bistability in single InAlAs quantum dots. The cancellation for the electron Zeeman splitting gives the precise value of the hole g factor. In combination with the exciton...

    We report on a method how quality factors of guided-mode resonances in photonic crystal slabs (PCSs) can be determined in the reciprocal space. Transmission measurements through PCSs are performed using crossed polarization filters before and after the PCS. Consequently the unwanted illumination...

    The paper deals with the formation of spherical intensity distributions on the basis of the interference of oncoming fine-focused vortex beams with different polarization. The formation of three-dimensional distributions is accomplished in a simple way by optimizing the width and position of a...

    The large active region AR NOAA 5200 from October 1988 is used to investigate the concept of the “halo,” a magnetosphere-like structure above the active region. This structure is studied by using radio spectral polarization observations with high spatial resolution obtained mainly...

    A gyrokinetic theory has been developed in an extended ordering in which the small parameter is the ratio of the E×B shearing rate to the gyrofrequency. This allows for long wavelength E×B flows of order of the thermal velocity, instead of the more restrictive standard orderings which...

    The excitation of surface plasmons on an elliptical grating followed by the transmission through a subwavelength aperture can modify the polarization state of the incoming light. The combined effect of the elliptical grooves and a slightly elliptical central hole allows to fully control the...

    The dynamics of optical gain in an InGaAs/AlInAs quantum cascade laser is studied in midinfrared pump-probe measurements. Pump and probe pulses of identical wavelength, polarization, and propagation direction through the laser waveguide are detected separately by electro-optic sampling. For...
