Overview The research in the Physical Optics and Electronics Group is divided along three primary themes: • Integrated Photonics • Biophotonics and Bioprocessors • Thermodynamics of Semiconductor Devices In all three areas the goal of this research is to exploit processes in physics to invent new devices that lead to better systems. Each researcher works to(More)
The equations (13) and (14) are algebraically consistent and may be solved as (7) and (8) in the real case. It may be observed that at this step the real and the imaginary parts of the eigenvectors are obtained as a solution of a fourdagonal system of linear equations. In this way the complex conjugate poles are treated in a similar manner as the real poles(More)
