  • Self-collimation in 2D Complex P- and PT-symmetric systems 

    Botey Cumella, Muriel; Ahmed Waseem, Waqas Waseem; Herrero Simon, Ramon; Staliunas, Kestutis (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We predict the self-collimation phenomena (or equivalently, dynamical localization) in 2-dimensional P-symmetric and PT-symmetric complex potentials, with periodic modulations of both gain/loss and refractive index. ...
  • PT-axisymmetry for extraordinary field confinement 

    Botey Cumella, Muriel; Ahmed Waseem, Waqas Waseem; Herrero Simon, Ramon; Staliunas, Kestutis (International Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Optical Parity-Time (PT-) symmetric systems support unusual properties when the symmetric coupling between internal modes is broken. We propose a new class of quasiperiodic PT-axisymmetric systems which lead to a simultaneous ...
  • Self-collimated beams in 2D complex periodic lattices from P- to PT-symmetry 

    Ahmed Waseem, Waqas Waseem; Botey Cumella, Muriel; Herrero Simon, Ramon; Staliunas, Kestutis (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We analyze self-collimation in two-dimensional periodic complex lattices. We consider P-symmetric and PT-symmetric complex lattices with different geometries, where the periodic modulations of both refractive index and ...
  • PT-axisymmetric VCSELs with linear central defect 

    Ahmed Waseem, Waqas Waseem; Botey Cumella, Muriel; Herrero Simon, Ramon; Staliunas, Kestutis (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Semiconductor Lasers and particularly Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) are important laser sources used for many purposes. However, the applications of these lasers are mainly restricted by their strongly ...
  • Vertical Azimuth Display simulator for wind-Doppler lidar error assessment 

    Tiana Alsina, Jordi; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco; Gutiérrez Antuñano, Miguel Ángel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This works presents a simplified Vertical Azimuth Display (VAD) motion simulator for off-shore wind lidars. The simulator is rooted to the case of a conically-scanning lidar (e.g., the Zephyr lidar), where the wind speed ...
  • Stabilization of broad area semiconductor lasers 

    Kumar, Shubham; Ahmed Waseem, Waqas Waseem; Herrero Simon, Ramon; Botey Cumella, Muriel; Staliunas, Kestutis (International Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Broad Area Semiconductor edge-emitting lasers typically display self-focusing nonlinearity due to the refractive index dependence on the population inversion. It induces the homogeneous solution instability, multi-transverse ...
  • Polarization-independent broadband bidirectional optical cloaking using a new type of inverse scattering approach 

    Hayran, Zeki; Herrero Simon, Ramon; Botey Cumella, Muriel; Kurt, Hamza; Staliunas, Kestutis (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Since the advent of transformation optics a decade ago [1], the ability to achieve optical cloaking has become a matter of practical realization. However, so far extreme material requirements and large device areas have ...
  • Are the spikes emitted by a semiconductor laser with feedback similar to neuronal spikes? 

    Quintero Quiroz, Carlos Alberto; Amaral Sorrentino, Taciano; Aragoneses, Andrés; Torrent Serra, Maria del Carmen; Masoller Alonso, Cristina (2017)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We study experimentally a semiconductor laser operating in a feedback-induced regime known as low frequency fluctuations (LFFs), in which the laser emits a spiking output that resembles the spikes of biological neurons. ...
  • A wind-lidar buoy for offshore wind measurements: first commissioning test-phase results 

    Gutiérrez Antuñano, Miguel Ángel; Tiana Alsina, Jordi; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco; Sospedra, Joaquim; Aghabi, Rajai; González Marco, Daniel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference lecture

    This paper presents the development of a new commercial floating lidar system aimed to measure the wind resource and other environmental variables at candidate wind farm locations. This work describes this new lidar system ...
  • Simulations and analysis of beam quality improvement in spatially modulated broad area edge-emitting devices 

    Radziunas, Mindaugas; Herrero Simon, Ramon; Botey Cumella, Muriel; Staliunas, Kestutis (International Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We simulate and analyze how beam quality improves while being amplified in edge emitting broad area semiconductor amplifiers with a periodic structuring of the electrical contacts, in both longitudinal and lateral directions. ...
  • Experimental study of different LFF regimes in semiconductor lasers with an external cavity 

    Aragoneses Aguado, Andrés; Zamora Munt, Jordi; Tiana Alsina, Jordi; Torrent Serra, Maria del Carmen; Masoller Alonso, Cristina (2011)

  • Transverse cross-correlation scheme for pulse shape measurement in random nonlinear crystals 

    Cojocaru, Crina; Wang, Bingxia; Trull Silvestre, José Francisco (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We present a novel single-shot cross-correlation scheme based on the measurement of the transverse second harmonic generation (TSHG) in crystals with randomly distributed nonlinear ferroelectric domains. We implement it ...
