Pulsed laser deposition and e-beam evaporation of vanadium dioxide thin films for IR-photonicsapplications
S Heinilehto, J Lappalainen, V Lantto ,Proc. of SPIE , 2007 ,
ABSTRACT Vanadium dioxide thin films were prepared on r-plane sapphire substrates by
using in-situ pulsed laser deposition (PLD) and by post-annealing pure metallic vanadium
films in synthetic air atmosphere by varying the annealing temperature and annealing time 

Horizontal slot waveguide-based efficient fiber couplers suitable for silicon photonics
  J Blasco ,Proceedings of ECIO , 2008 ,
Abstract. In this paper, simulation results of high performance grating and inverted taper fiber
couplers for horizontal slot waveguides are reported. Maximum 48% and 61% coupling
efficiencies are achieved for positive and negative detuned gratings, respectively. 

Design Tools for Photonics: Rising to the Challenge
T Benson, P Sewell, A Vukovic, S Boriskina ,IEEE LEOS Newsletter ,
Commercial success in the photonics marketplace dictates a full understanding of the
product development lifecycle. Underpinning this success is the maximization of
performance and minimization of product development time. These can be afforded at an 

Photonics education within the framework of electrical engineering program of studies
C Vlcek ,Power, 2002 ,
ABSTRACT Except of specialists, dealing with different photonics areas, the education of all
technical professionals about basic photonics principles, components, applications and

Propagation modeling for multimode photonics
RP Ratowsky, BB Afeyan ,Physics and Simulation , 1999 ,
ABSTRACT While ray optics is a valid model for many multimode optical systems, it cannot
capture diffraction and interference phenomena which may be required, for example, in
calculating speckle propagation in multimode fiber. Wave optics includes the effect of 

Characterization ofp-in-n ATLAS silicon microstrip detectors fabricated by Hamamatsu Photonicsand irradiated with 24 GeV/c protons to 3× 10 14 pcm-2
