We present results from a new method for the solution of electromagnetic scattering from finite sets of two-dimensional cylinders exhibiting sidewall deformations. Our model treats the sidewall deviation as a small ...
We consider sums over the set of positive integers relevant to construction of periodic Green's functions for diffraction gratings and similar problems, and provide a general formula for a combination of Bessel functions ...

Environmental scanning electron microscopy (ESEM) enables electron imaging of gas-mediated, direct-write nanolithography processes, liquids, and hydrated biomaterials. However, ESEM is limited by poor image quality at gas ...
We prove a regularized formula for the secret key-assisted capacity region of a quantum channel for transmitting private classical information. This result parallels the work of Devetak on entanglement assisted quantum ...
We present a detailed theoretical study of the recent proposal for selective nanomanipulation of nanometric particles above a substrate using near-field optical forces [P.C. Chaumet et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 88, 123601 ...
High-chromium white cast irons are alloys that are based on the iron-chromium-carbon system and are classified in ISO 21988-2006 as abrasion-resistant cast irons that contain greater than 11% chromium. High-chromium white ...
The scanning electron microsope (SEM) cna be used to study and characterise a wide variety of materials used in nanoelectronic and photonic applications. Several different techniques make use of this versatile tool. These ...

Semi-active H-infinity control of vehicle suspension with magneto-rheological (MR) damper is studied in this paper. First, an experiment is conducted on an MR damper prototype subjected to cyclic excitation. Then, a ...
We have developed semianalytical methods that allow us to perform a comprehensive analysis of the surface modes of photonic woodpiles. The surface modes of both finite and semi-infinite woodpiles are characterized using ...
We define the concept of an impedance matrix for three-dimensional (3D) photonic and metamaterial structures relative to a reference medium and show that it satisfies a matrix generalization of the basic algebraic properties ...
e present a semianalytic theory for the properties of two-dimensional photonic crystal waveguides of finite length. For single-mode guides, the transmission spectrum and field intensity can be accurately described by a ...
We investigate localized defect states near the edge of a band gap in a two-dimensional photonic crystal. An asymptotic approach based on Green's functions leads to analytical results both for the frequency and for the ...
The radiative energy loss from an argon plasma in a shock tube has been investigated, with emphasis on the role of reabsorption. Electron densities reached values of 1.5*1024 electrons m-3 behind the primary shock, and ...
A rigorous quantitative verification technique is presented for nonlinear finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) algorithms by analyzing parametric four-wave mixing (FWM) in an optical Kerr medium without involving other ...
Abstract: A simple quasi-2D model for the temperature distribution in a graphite tube furnace is presented. The model is used to estimate the temperature gradients in the furnace at temperatures above which contact sensors ...

In this study, we report a simple and cost-effective method for in situ decoration of Ag NPs onto nanoporous TiO2 microrods by one medium (ethylene glycol) that can produce two different morphologies. In order to investigate ...
t has previously been established that the lowest energy site for chlorine atoms on Cu(111) is the fcc hollow. However, substantial population of the hcp hollow at room temperature indicates that there is a relatively ...

This paper describes the equilibrium morphologies of zinc sulfide nanoparticles in the wurtzite phase as a function of size, determined using ab initio Density Functional Theory (DFT) simulations and a shape-dependent ...
