We report on the observation of the strong-coupling regime between the excitonic transition of a single GaAs quantum dot and a discrete optical mode of a microdisk microcavity. Photoluminescence is performed at various temperatures to tune the quantum dot exciton with respect to the optical mode. At resonance, we observe a clear anticrossing behavior,(More)
—A novel Nonlinear Model Predictive Control (NMPC) scheme is proposed in order to shape the harmonic response of constrained nonlinear systems. The salient ingredient is the short-time Fourier transform (STFT) of the system's output signal, which is constrained in an NMPC problem, leading to the novel formulation of so-called spectrum constraints. Recursive(More)
— A novel splitting scheme to solve parametric multi-convex programs is presented. It consists of a fixed number of proximal alternating minimisations and a dual update per time step, which makes it attractive in a real-time Nonlinear Model Predictive Control (NMPC) framework and for distributed computing environments. Assuming that the parametric program(More)
In situ imaging techniques are a promising direction for monitoring the distribution of crystal sizes and shapes during a crystallization process. Nevertheless, no tractable method yet exists for estimating complex crystal shapes. In this paper, an in situ imaging setup is presented and a novel algorithm for crystal shape estimation from a pair of images is(More)
— A novel augmented Lagrangian method for solving non-convex programs with nonlinear cost and constraint couplings in a distributed framework is presented. The proposed decomposition algorithm is made of two layers: The outer level is a standard multiplier method with penalty on the nonlinear equality constraints, while the inner level consists of a(More)
The size and shape of particles crucially influences the characteristics of solid products. Until recently these quantities were evaluated using light microscopy. However, extracting the three-dimensional shape of a faceted crystal from a single image is a formidable computer vision challenge. In this work we combine stereoscopic imaging devices (e.g.,(More)
