We demonstrate label-free optical biosensing using a horizontal air-slotted silicon-rich silicon nitride (SiNx) microdisk resonator. Due to the strong confinement of light in the air-slot, a large resonance shift of 6.2 nm is observed upon reaction of the biotin-functionalized disk with a streptavidin solution with concentration of 2.5 μg/ml. Assuming a(More)
This paper snggests a method to align Korean-English parallel corpus. '1?he structural dissimilarity between Korean and Indo-European languages requires more flexible measures to evaluate the alignment candidates between the bilingual units than is used to handle the pairs of Indo-European languages. The flexible measure is intended to capture the(More)
Thin-film color reflectors inspired by Morpho butterflies are fabricated. Using a combination of directional deposition, silica microspheres with a wide size distribution, and a PDMS (polydimethylsiloxane) encasing, a large, flexible reflector is created that actually provides better angle-independent color characteristics than Morpho butterflies and which(More)
On-chip, planar integration of Er-doped Silicon-rich silicon nitride microdisks with SU-8 waveguide and polymer cladding is achieved. The lack of high temperature or etching processes allows back-end integration without any optical damage to the microcavity resonator. The maximum measured Q-factor at 1475.5 nm was 13,000, corresponding to calculated(More)
Single-phase, polycrystalline Er(x)Y(2-x)SiO(5) thin films were deposited by reactive ion-beam sputter deposition and rapid thermal annealing. Due to the crystalline nature, the silicate thin films provide peak Er(3+) emission cross-section of 0.9 +/- 0.02 x 10(-20) cm(2) that is higher than that in silica. Optical gain, with near 60% inversion, is achieved(More)
By confining light in a small cavity, the spontaneous emission rate of an emitter can be controlled via the Purcell effect. However, while Purcell factors as large as ∼10,000 have been predicted, actual reported values were in the range of about 10-30 only, leaving a huge gap between theory and experiment. Here we report on enhanced 1.54-μm emission from(More)
We design and fabricate pedestal-type, 15 microm diameter silicon nitride microdisk resonators on Si chip with horizontal air-slot using selective wet etching between Si, SiO2, and SiNx. As the slot structure is determined by deposition process, air slots that are as thin as 40 nm and as deep as 5 microm with ultra-smooth slot surfaces can easily be(More)
