  • Patent number: 9841561
    Abstract: A SOI bent taper structure is used as a mode convertor. By tuning the widths of the bent taper and the bend angles, almost lossless mode conversion is realized between TE0 and TE1 in a silicon waveguide. The simulated loss is <0.05 dB across C-band. This bent taper can be combined with bi-layer TM0-TE1 rotator to reach very high efficient TM0-TE0 polarization rotator. An ultra-compact (9 ?m) bi-layer TM0-TE1 taper based on particle swarm optimization is demonstrated. The entire TM0-TE0 rotator has a loss <0.25 dB and polarization extinction ratio >25 dB, worst-case across the C-band.

  • Patent number: 9017773
    Abstract: A method is described for depositing nanostructures, such as nanostructures of conducting polymers, carbon nanostructures, or combinations thereof. The process comprises placing the nanostructures in a liquid composition comprising an immiscible combination of aqueous phase and an organic phase. The mixture is mixed for a period of time sufficient to form an emulsion and then allowed to stand undisturbed so that the phases are allowed to separate. As a result the nanostructure materials locate at the interface of the forming phases and are uniformly dispersed along that interface. A film of the nanostructure materials will then form on a substrate intersecting the interface, said substrate having been placed in the mixture before the phases are allowed to settle and separate.

A framework with a suitable structure is designed considering comprehensively three factors, i.e., the window ratio of an optical fiber coil, the precision of an optical fiber gyro and the easy detachment of the framework from the optical fiber coil. A surface treatment with the framework is performed by coating a layer of thermosol on the surface of the framework so the optical fiber coil can be easily detached from the framework after curing. The required length of optical fiber is winded around the optical fiber coil framework, accompanying with vacuum pressure impregnating with curing adhesive after winding and optical fiber coil curing subsequently. The framework is taken off from the optical fiber coil under the heating circumstances, thereby completing production of the non-framework optical fiber coil.

  • Patent number: 8343585
    Abstract: Mechanisms for coating surfaces of materials, the resulting coated materials, and solutions for use in material-coating processes are described. Triblock molecule components may be selected for desired properties. When applied in solution to a material, the molecules self-assemble into similarly oriented micro- or nanostructures coating the surface of the material. Various molecule properties can be tailored to produce a range of desirable surface coating properties. The surface coating may optionally be self cleaning if selected to be appropriately hydrophobic, allowing water and particulates to roll off of the surface with minimal friction.
