Yi-Siang Yeh Analysis of Optimal Core Diameter for Terahertz Pipe waveguide
Yi-Siang Yeh,Chih-Hsien Lai,

Optimal core diameter of terahertz (THz) pipe waveguide, when the bent condition is taken into account, is investigated. Numerical results show that the small bending radius the pipe waveguide suffers, the small optimal core diameter it will have. Moreover, the optimal core diameter increases slightly with the bending length.

Tu Duc Vu Guided-mode resonance enhanced near-infrared-to-visible upconversion fluorescence in a resonant waveguide grating
TuDuc Vu,HsuChen Chia,

Guided mode resonance (GMR) enhanced near-infrared (near-IR)-to-visible upconversion fluorescence (UCF) from a rare-earth doped polymer resonant waveguide grating (RWG), comprised of a NaYF4:Yb/Tm nanocrystals doped poly-methyl-methacrylate (NaYF4:Yb/Tm-PMMA) thin layer. The intensity of the UCF can be enhanced compared with that from a flat area by matching either incoming near-IR excitation or out-going UCF extraction to the GMR wavelengths

Hsin-Feng Hsu,Cheng-Hsiang Chang,Yang-Tung Huang,Meng-Feng Lu,Chyong-Hua Chen,

In this study, design, fabrication and characterization of the Si-based ARROW-B microring resonators for WDM applications were presented. The simulation results showed that the resonant wavelengths of these resonators were 1552.55 nm, 1556.74 nm, 1560.94 nm and 1565.13 nm, respectively. Compared with our measured drop wavelengths of 1553.35 nm, 1556.77 nm, 1559.31 nm and 1563.03 nm at through port, the deviations of resonant wavelengths were less than 0.1%.

Yi-Han Li Coupling Behaviors of Gain-Guided Index-Antiguided Slab Waveguides
Yi-Han Li,Sin-Jhe Huang,Chih-Hsien Lai,

We investigate the coupling behaviors of the slab type gain-guided index-antiguided (GGIAG) waveguides. It is found that the distance where one waveguide obtains maximum power and the distance where another waveguide has minimum power are different. The coupling length will be affected by the introduced gain in the core region.

Kuen-Wei Sung Acousto-optic interaction in one-dimensional photonic crystal fishbone nanocavity
Kuen-Wei Sung,Fu-Li Hsiao,

We investigate the acousto-optic coupling in 1-D fishbone nanocavity with simultaneous photonic and phononic bandgaps. The strength of the acousto-optic interaction can be estimated by coupling rate calculation, based on both photo-elastic and moving-boundary effects. Both contributions can be in phase or out of phase in the total acousto-optic coupling.
