The aim of this study was to analyse the long-term effects of Herbst treatment on the dentofacial complex with special reference to the growth period in which the patients were treated. The sample consisted of 40 male subjects with a Class II, division 1 malocclusion treated successfully with the Herbst appliance for an average period of 7 months. The(More)
We study experimentally the spectral evolution of supercontinua in two different microstructured fibers that are pumped with nanosecond pulses from dual-wavelength sources of either 1064/532 nm or 946/473 nm output. The experimental findings are compared with simulations based on numerically solving the nonlinear Schrödinger equation. The role of cascaded(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the short- and long-term effects of Herbst appliance treatment in relation to normal growth and development. The sample consisted of 32 subjects (16 boys and 16 girls) with a Class II, division 1 malocclusion treated successfully with the Herbst appliance for an average period of 7 months. The patients were(More)
We address the long-standing unresolved problem concerning the V parameter in a photonic crystal fiber. In formulating the parameter appropriate for a core defect in a periodic structure, we argue that the multimode cutoff occurs at a wavelength lambda* that satisfies VPCF(lambda*) = pi. By comparing this approach with numerics and recent cutoff(More)
An ytterbium-doped photonic bandgap fiber amplifier operating at the long wavelength edge of the ytterbium gain band is investigated for high power amplification. The spectral filtering effect of the photonic bandgap efficiently suppresses amplified spontaneous emission at the conventional ytterbium gain wavelengths and thus enables high power amplification(More)
We report on an ytterbium-doped single-transverse-mode rod-type photonic crystal fiber that combines the advantages of low nonlinearity and intrinsic polarization stability. The mode-field-area of the fundamental mode is as large as 2300 microm(2). An output power of up to 163 W with a degree of polarization better than 85% has been extracted from a simple(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the space closure and occlusal changes in 11 subjects (mean age 11.8 years) with normal occlusion and agenesis of the mandibular second premolar, after extraction of the mandibular secondary primary molar and the maxillary second premolar on the side of the agenesis. The treatment started when the first premolars(More)
The aim of this study was to analyze quantitatively the sagittal skeletal and dental changes contributing to Class II correction in patients treated with the Herbst appliance after the pubertal growth peak. The sample consisted of 21 subjects with a Class II, Division 1 malocclusion treated during the skeletal maturity stages MP3-H and -1, corresponding to(More)
