    Article
    Open Access
    The electromagnetic coupling between a gaussian beam and whisker structures such as those found in some kinds of non-linear devices used at infrared frequencies is investigated. Calculations show the potential improvement ...

    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents a method to compute the overlap function of a lidar system in which a step-index optical fiber (or a bundle of such fibers) is used to carry the light collected by the telescope to the photoreceiver and ...
