Efficient coupling of light wave into slow modes planar photonic crystal slab waveguides

The generation of the slow modes in a planar photonic crystal waveguide has been highlighted theoretically and experimentally in the two last decade. However, the exploitation of this phenomenon to control the light propagation in the optical integrated circuits faces several obstacles and technological locks. On the one hand, it is almost impossible to excite this type of modes in the slowing light devices because of...

Synthesis of nickel ferrite nanoparticles by co-precipitation chemical method

In this research work, we have prepared nickel ferrite nanoparticles by using chemical route. Nanoparticle materials are characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM),transmission electron microscopes (TEM) and energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) systems. We have determined magnetic properties, size,...

High power Bessel-like laser beam by thin disk geometry

We have numerically shown that a high power Bessel-Gauss beam can be generated by a solid state thin disk laser using an axicon-based resonator. Ytterbium ions doped in the Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (YAG) crystal was utilized in this configuration as an active medium. We obtained the output power, the intensity as well as phase profiles on the output coupler and the active medium.   Key...

A learning automata-based algorithm using stochastic minimum spanning tree for improving life time in wireless sensor networks

Several algorithms have already been provided for problems of data aggregation in wireless sensor networks, which somehow tried to increase networks lifetimes. In this study, we dealt with this problem using a more efficient method by taking parameters such as the distance between two sensors into account. In this paper, we presented a heuristic algorithm based on distributed learning automata with variable actions set...

Performance evaluation of broadband access network based on subcarrier multiplexing (SCM): Spectral amplitude coding optical code division multiple access

A hybrid spectrally amplitude coded (SAC) optical code division multiple access (CDMA) with subcarrier multiplexing (SCM) scheme is a potential candidate for future broadband access solutions in the communication network. In this work, the performance of hybrid technique is investigated. Theoretical derivations are developed based on the zero cross correlation (ZCC) code. The performances are evaluated taking into...

Feature subset selection using association rule mining and JRip classifier

Feature selection is an important task in many fields such as statistics and machine learning. It aims at preprocessing step that include removal of irrelevant and redundant features and the retention of useful features. Selecting the relevant features increases the accuracy and decreases the computational cost. Feature selection also helps to understand the relevant data, addressing the complexity of dimensionality. In...

Hybrid wavelength division multiplexing/time domain multiplexed (WDM/TDM) using radio over fiber technique with 16QAM at 2.5 Gbps

There is growing demand for higher bit rates in the access domain due to the emergence of bandwidth-hungry applications such as video-on-Demand and file sharing. Gigabit-capable passive optical network (GPON) is the most important PON. In a hybrid wave division multiplexing/time division multiplexing (WDM/TDM passive optical network (PON), Quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) is proposed as a way to achieve...

An investigation to compare the effectiveness of packet loss based on proposed methods in literature

Optical flow routing is an optical networks that technique used to ensure that the packet is always in the sequence order. This research is intended to ensure that the network traffic is enhanced of the quality of service (QoS). An analytical method is used in order to show its effectiveness of flow routing. There are three cases that have been investigated in this research investigation namely, packet discards (PD),...
