RF Communication and Sensing in Harsh Environments

On August 19th, we celebrated the milestone of our 2007 article in Nature Photonics, which marked the debut of the dielectric RF receiver. The pioneering RF receiver incorporates a ceramic RF antenna with an electrooptic sensor. The absence of any metal or electronic...

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).
