The mechanical properties of metal materials largely depend on their intrinsic internal microstructures. To develop engineering materials with the expected properties, predicting patterns in solidified metals would be indispensable. The phase-field simulation is the most powerful method known to simulate the micro-scale dendritic growth during(More)
Four-wave mixing is observed in a silicon W1 photonic crystal waveguide. The dispersion dependence of the idler conversion efficiency is measured and shown to be enhanced at wavelengths exhibiting slow group velocities. A 12-dB increase in the conversion efficiency is observed. Concurrently, a decrease in the conversion bandwidth is observed due to the(More)
