A unified Monte Carlo treatment of the transport of electromagnetic energy, electrons, and phonons in absorbing and scattering media
The scalar Boltzmann transport equation (BTE) is often applicable to radiative energy transfer, electron–beam propagation, as well as thermal conduction by electrons and phonons provided that the characteristic length of ...
Surface waves and atomic force microscope probe-particle near-field coupling: discrete dipole approximation with surface interaction
(Optics InfoBase, 2010-10)
Evanescent waves on a surface form due to the collective motion of charges within the medium. They do not carry any energy away from the surface and decay exponentially as a function of the distance. However, if there is ...
Spectral tuning of near-field radiative heat flux between two thin silicon carbide films
(Institute of Physics, 2010)
Spectral distributions of radiative heat flux between two thin silicon carbide films separated by sub-wavelength distances in vacuum are analysed. An analytical expression for the near-field flux between two layers of ...
On ‘‘Radiative transfer in three-dimensional rectangular enclosures containing inhomogeneous,anisotropically scattering media’’
Our 1985 paper (JQSRT 1985; 33: 533–549) reported the result of the research we conducted back then to better understand heat transfer processes in large-scale combustion chambers, especially in pulverized coal-fired ...
Design, operation, and motion characteristics of a precise piezoelectric linear motor
This paper presents the design, operation, and motion characteristics of a precise piezoelectric motor for linear translation. The motor is compact, thermally stable, ultra-high vacuum compatible, and suitable for applications ...
Polarization imaging of multiply-scattered radiation based on integral-vector Monte Carlo method
A new integral-vector Monte Carlo method (IVMCM) is developed to analyze the transfer of polarized radiation in 3D multiple scattering particle-laden media. The method is based on a “successive order of scattering series” ...
Dependent absorption and scattering by interacting nanoparticles
(Begell House Inc., 2010)
Dependent light scattering and absorption patterns of metallic nano-sized particles in interaction with other spherical and cone-like structures were investigated. The numerical solution of the light scattering problem was ...
A retrospective view on‘‘3-dimensional radiation in absorbing, emitting and scattering media using discrete-ordinates approximation’’by J.S.Truelove
Discrete-ordinates (DO) approximations to the radiative transfer equation in three- dimensional enclosures have extensively been used during the last three decades. The 1988 paper by Truelove  is one of the pioneering ...
Local density of electromagnetic states within a nanometric gap formed between two thin films supporting surface phonon polaritons
(AIP Publishing, 2010)
We present a detailed physical analysis of the near-field thermal radiation spectrum emitted by a silicon carbide (SiC) film when another nonemitting SiC layer is brought in close proximity. This is accomplished via the ...
