Abstract:

This program funded the purchase of a Sun Ultra 60 dual processor workstation and tunable laser modules from New Focus that complement our existing tunable diode laser and extend the tuning range from 1470 nm to 1620 nm. These were, and continue to be, used in our work on photonic crystal devices. In particular, the workstation has been used to calculate modes for the design of a single defect microcavity photonic crystal laser. We are also modeling and fabricating photonic bandgap waveguides. Here both the workstation and the tunable laser are to be used. In addition, they are also both a part of the work being done on superprism and super-dispersion structures that are under investigation in our lab.
