Kam Yan Hon's paper
Kam Yan Hon’s paper titled “The Third-Order Nonlinear Optical Coefficients of Si, Ge, and Si(1-x)Ge(x) in the midwave and longwave infrared” has been selected to be on the cover of Journal of Applied Physics. Congratulations!
Using a combination of semiconductor theory and experimental results from the scientific literature, we have compiled and plotted the key third-order nonlinear optical coefficients of bulk crystalline Si and Ge as a function of wavelength (1.5-6.7 um for Si and 2.0-14.7 um for Ge).
Ali Fard wins SPIE Scholarship. This award recognizes his academic and research excellence in the field of optics and photonics. Congratulations!
