A Monte Carlo simulation for phonon transport within silicon structures at nanoscales with heat generation
Nanoscale phonon transport within silicon structures subjected to internal heat generation was explored. A Monte Carlo simulation was used. The simulation procedures differed from the current existing methods in which ...
Localized radiative energy transfer from a plasmonic bow-tie nano-antenna to a magnetic thin film stack
(Springer Business+Media, 2011-06)
Localized radiative energy transfer from a near-field emitter to a magnetic thin film structure is investigated. A magnetic thin film stack is placed in the near-field of the plasmonic nano-antenna to utilize the evanescent ...
Thermal impacts on the performance of nanoscale-gap thermophotovoltaic power generators
The thermal impacts on the performance of nanoscale-gap thermophotovoltaic (nano-TPV) power generators are investigated using a coupled near-field thermal radiation, charge, and heat transport formulation. A nano-TPV device ...
Low-loss optical switch using Brewster angle
Fabrication and actuation errors of submicron silicon waveguide optical switches are reported to remain within sub-100 nm ranges. These errors cause high loss ruining the optical performance of the switches at the on-state. ...
Discrete-dipole approximation with surface interaction: computational toolbox for MATLAB
We describe a MATLAB toolbox that utilizes the discrete-dipole approximation (DDA) method for modelling light interaction with arbitrarily-shape scatterers in free space as well with planar surface interaction (DDA-SI). ...
Estimating quantitative features of nanoparticles using multiple derivatives of scattering profiles
Characterization of nanoparticles on surfaces is a challenging in verse problem whose solution has many practical applications. This article proposes a method, suitable for in situ characterization systems, for estimating ...
Radiative transfer configuration factor catalog: a listing of relations for common geometries
An on-line compilation of radiation configuration factors for over 300 common geometries is provided as a supplementary material from the JQSRT web site at doi:10.1016/j.jqsrt.2010.10.002. The factors are gathered from ...
T-matrix method for modelling optical tweezers
(Taylor & Francis, 2011)
We review the use of the T-matrix description of scattering, or the T-matrix method, for the calculation of optical forces and torques, especially for the computational modelling of optical tweezers. We consider both simple ...
The semileptonic B to K1(1270, 1400) decays in QCD sum rules
(IOP Publishing, 2011)
We analyze the semileptonic rare decays of the B meson to K1(1270) and K1(1400) axial vector mesons. The B → K1(1270, 1400)_+_− decays are significant flavor-changing neutral current decays of the B meson. These decays are ...
