This is mostly due to improvements in package design rather than changes in the chip design, but according to Lipscomb, both factors will be important as integrated optics continue to advance.
Armando Loni received his BSc degree with honors in natural philosophy and his PhD degree in lithium niobate integrated optics from the University of Glasgow, Scotland in 1984 and 1988, respectively.
EOS is organising the first topical meeting on integrated optics and photonics in Joensuu, Finland, in November.
The topics include glass formation in several chalcogenide systems, relaxation and fragility in chalcogenide network glasses, atomistic modeling and simulating chalcogenide glasses, broadband near-infrared photoluminescence of doped chalcogenide glasses, and fabricating passive and active tellurite thin films and waveguides for integrated optics. Distributed by CRC Press.
Among the topics are analyzing single cells using lab-on-a-chip systems, focusing particles without sheath flows in microflow cytometers, integrated optics, electrical detection in microfluidic flow cytometers, the autonomous pathogen detection system, and system integrated.
For instance, in micro-mechanics, integrated optics, wear reduction or the production of nano-composite materials.For researchers at Linz University, the cell-growing technology is still in a testing phase and Professor Heitz prefers not to be overwhelmed by enthusiasm, even though he concedes that results have been 'very encouraging so far'.
They have also launched a development program in support of this technology to help customers take advantage of integrated optics design.
After introducing the nomenclature and notations, seven chapters discuss integrated optics, including coverage of step-index thin-film waveguides, graded-index thin-film waveguides, propagation loss in thin-film waveguides, three-dimensional waveguides with rectangular boundaries, optical directional couplers and their applications, guided-wave gratings, and arrayed-waveguide gratings.
The ExSite Series not only combines a receiver, pan/tilt, and enclosure in a single, easy-to-install system, but also includes an Integrated Optics Package (IOP) containing an auto-focus camera and lens module with programmable features.
Details of the technology used in this switch were presented at ECOC-IOOC 2003 (European Conference on Optical Communication/International Conference on Integrated Optics and Optical Fibre Communications), held in Rimini, Italy starting September 21.
