Time-domain topology optimization is used here to design optical pulse-shaping filters in Si/SiO2 thin-film systems. A novel envelope objective function as well as explicit penalization are used to adapt the optimization method to this unique class of design problems.

    We experimentally demonstrate that the stress-induced magnetic anisotropy in composition-graded ferromagnetic NiFeTa layers can be employed to trigger exchange bias in NiFeTa/IrMn bilayers without using any deposition field or field cooling procedure. In particular, we found that the NiFeTa/IrMn...

    Magnetic cell positioning is demonstrated by controlling the magnetic domain walls in ferromagnetic zigzag thin films. Magnetophoresis experiment is performed to determine the number of magnetic nanoparticles that enter the cells by endocytosis. It is observed that in the zigzag structure with...

    Devices based on mesas were fabricated from thin films of magnetically phase-separated La0.6Ca0.4MnO3. Low-field magnetoresistance arises because the volume fraction of the ferromagnetic metallic phase is large enough for percolation but small enough to permit magnetic decoupling between each...

    Abstract��We consider a special class of optimization problems that we call Mathematical Programs with Vanishing Constraints, MPVC for short, which serves as a unified framework for several applications in structural and topology optimization. Since an MPVC most often violates stronger...

    The evolutionary structural optimization (ESO) method evolves a structure from the full design domain towards an optimum by gradually removing inefficient material. The bi-directional ESO (BESO) may start from any initial design and evolve a structure to an optimum by adding and removing...

    We study the existence of integer solutions to max-linear optimization problems. Specifically, we show that, in a generic case, the integer max-linear optimization problem can be solved in strongly polynomial time. This extends results from our previous papers where polynomial methods for this...
