Dispersion compensation is demonstrated experimentally by pulse compression with the use of chirped optical fiber Bragg gratings. The gratings chirp is self-induced by the Gaussian intensity profile of the 240-nm wavelength beam used for holographic sidewriting of the grating. Chirped pulses generated by a 1.55-microm gain-switched distributed-feedback… (More)
A train of nearly transform-limited pulses are generated from a 1.55-microm distributed-feedback laser diode by using gain switching in a novel technique, which is a combination of a spectral window and temporal compression. By amplifying these pulses with erbium-doped fiber amplifiers, we demonstrate soliton transmission in a conventional single-mode fiber.
The effect of third-order dispersion on soliton-effect pulse compression is investigated. We show that third-order dispersion causes severe degradation in dispersion-shifted fibers in the compression of high-order soliton pulses. As much as an 80% reduction is found in the optimum compression ratio of 15th-order solitons of 1-ps width. We also show that… (More)
ZnO thin films have been grown by radio-frequency magnetron sputtering on c-plane sapphire substrates with III-V (i.e., GaAs and InAs) intermediate layers. The intermediate layers were grown by molecular beam epitaxy. Structural and optical properties were studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Raman scatterings. The growth orientations of the… (More)
To explore the phylogenetic relationship, genome donor, and evolutionary history of the polyploid mustard (Brassica juncea) from China, eighty-one sequences of the chalcone synthase gene (Chs) were analyzed in 43 individuals, including 34 B. juncea, 2 B. rapa, 1 B. nigra, 2 B. oleracea, 1 B. napus, 1 B. carinata, and 2 Raphanus sativus. A maximum likelihood… (More)
The broad-band amplitude noise of 40-GHz pulses from a subharmonically synchronous mode-locked (SSML) semiconductor laser is investigated. Experiments show that the amplitude noise of pulses generated from a SSML laser depends on the amplitude noise and pulsewidth of injected pulses, frequency detuning and subharmonic numbers.
Because of their local adaptation and economic factors that limit the adoption of commercial hybrids, farmer-saved maize landraces are still grown over a considerable area concentrated in southwest China. To evaluate the potential of using maize landraces, the germplasm characteristics of 96 landraces from southwest China were evaluated at phenotypic,… (More)
A self-seeded gain-switched semiconductor laser is applied as a fundamental optical source to second-harmonic generation, and improvement of frequency-conversion efficiency is demonstrated. 345-nm ultraviolet light of 0.12-muW average power is generated in a bulk LiIO(3) crystal for 690-nm fundamental light of 10.5-mW average power, which is composed of… (More)
The release and transfer of GaN epilayers to other substrates is of interest for a variety of applications, including heterogeneous integration of silicon logic devices, III–V power devices and optical devices. We have developed a simple wet chemical etching method to release high-quality epitaxial III-nitride films from their substrates. This method builds… (More)
