For a multilayer structure illuminated by a laser beam, absorption of optical energy in the absorptive layers and the diffusion of the resultant heat throughout the structure are studied. Analytical and numerical procedures for this study are described, and, as a specific example, the profiles of temperature distribution during recording on a magnetooptical(More)
A microlens fabrication process is described which can be used in applications requiring integration of optical elements (lenses) and microcircuits. The process is fully compatible with 1C fabrication technology and uses commercially available 1C processing materials. The obtained microlenses are of excellent quality and basically show diffraction-limited(More)
Earlier work on the local heating of stationary multilayer structures by focused laser light has been extended to deal with nonstationary situations. The numerical procedures described here are therefore applicable to many important technologies including optical recording, thermal marking, and laser annealing. We demonstrate this in two examples, namely,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate acceptability and feasibility of a theoretically based two-part (brief in-person + 8-week automated text message) depression prevention program, "intervention for DepressiOn and Violence prevention in the Emergency department" (iDOVE), for high-risk adolescents. METHODS English-speaking emergency department (ED) patients (age 13-17,(More)
A method for calculating the optical properties of amorphous metals is described. When the reflectivity at low photon energies is well represented by the Hagen-Rubens equation, the Kramers-Kronig relation can be expressed in terms of a ratio reflectance, and the optical phase so obtained has much greater accuracy than when obtained by the regular approach.(More)
