Tailoring single-cycle electromagnetic pulses in the 2-9 THz frequency range using DAST/SiO2 multilayer structures pumped at Ti:sapphire wavelengthAug 22 2014We present a numerical parametric study of single-cycle electromagnetic pulse generation in a DAST/SiO2 multilayer structure via collinear optical rectification of 800 nm femtosecond laser pulses. It is shown that modifications of the thicknesses of the ... More

Voltage-Controlled Nano-Scale Reconfigurable Magnonic CrystalJul 27 2016A nano-scale reconfigurable magnonic crystal is designed using voltage-controlled perpendicular magnetic anisotropy (PMA) in ferromagnetic-dielectric hetero-structures. A periodic array of gate metallic stripes is placed on top of a MgO/Co structure in ... More

Bond Model and Group Theory of Second Harmonic Generation in GaAs(001)Aug 06 2014Sep 12 2014A comprehensive analysis of second harmonic generation (SHG) in a diatomic zincblende crystal based on the Simplified Bond Hyperpolarizability Model (SBHM), Group Theory (GT) is presented. The third rank tensor between the two approaches are compared ... More

VapeTracker: Tracking Vapor Consumption to Help E-cigarette Users QuitMar 31 2016Despite current controversy over e-cigarettes as a smoking cessation aid, we present early work based on a web survey (N=249) that shows that some e-cigarette users (46.2%) want to quit altogether, and that behavioral feedback that can be tracked can ...
