    An experimental setup is described on which the fact of specular reflection of hard γ quanta ( E ≤ 5 MeV) from a smooth amorphous surface has been experimentally established. Specular reflection is observed at sliding incidence of γ quanta onto a reflecting surface at angles of a few...

    Mechanical contacts are crucial to systems in engineering, electronics and biology. The microscopic nature of the contacting surfaces determines how they mesh on the nanoscale. There is thus much interest in methods that can map the actual area of two surfaces in contact-the real contact area-...

    A surface-emitting distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) laser with a mode control section was fabricated. By increasing the injection current into the control section, the lasing wavelength switches from the DBR mode to the Fabry–Perot mode. The lasing wavelength difference was about 13 nm,...

    Multistability of the reflection coefficient as a function of incident amplitude is theoretically demonstrated to be possible for a semiinfinite optically homogeneous medium with the Kerr nonlinearity. The multistability arises at certain relations between the system parameters. The treatment is...
