  1. 1. Carbon Nanotube Polymer Composites: Mechanical, Electrical and Photorefractive Properties

    Author : Liliana Licea Jimenez; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : carbon nanotubes; electrical properties; photorefractive properties.; polymer matrix nanocomposites; mechanical properties;

    Abstract : Incorporation of carbon nanotubes (CNT) into polymers is attractive due to the generally good processability of polymers and unprecedented properties of nanotubes. In this work, preparation and matrix known earlier but not employed so-far for nanocomposites are studied towards enhanced mechanical and electrical performances. READ MORE

    Abstract : Lithium niobate (LiNbO3) and KTiOPO4 (KTP) are ferroelectric crystals of considerable interest in different fields of optics and optoelectronics. Due to its large values of the nonlinear optical, electro-optic (EO), piezoelectric and acousto-optical coefficients, LiNbO3 is widely used for laser frequency conversion using the quasiphase matching (QPM) approach where the sign of nonlinearity has been periodically modulated by electric field poling (EFP).

    Keywords : optical parametric oscillators; optica parametric amplifiers; quasi-phasematching; KTiOPO4; nonlinear optics; frequency conversion; periodic electric field poling; ferroelectrics; high-order second harmonic generation; electro-optic effect;

    Abstract : Optical parametric oscillators (OPOs) and optical parametricamplifiers (OPAs) constitute a class of optical frequencyconverting devices that have many possible applications, range finding, molecular spectroscopy and medicine. READ MORE

  4. 4. Two-Photon Absorption and Photorefraction in Semiconductors and Ferroelectrics

    Author : Johan Bergquist; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Two-photon absorption spectra of Al0.4Ga0.6As/GaAs quantum wells in static electric fields are investigated experimentally. A drastic field-induced increase in the absorption peaks at energies close to half the bandgap energy is reported for the first time. READ MORE
