This study is devoted to the examination of scattering of waves by a slab containing randomly located cylinders. For the first time to our knowledge, the complete transmission problem has been solved numerically. We have compared the radiative transfer theory with a numerical solution of the wave equation. We discuss the coherent effects, such as(More)
Luminescent layers are prepared by the implantation of kilo-electron-volt Er ions into tantalum pentoxide (Ta(2)O(5)) thin films made by ion plating. The implantation fluences range from 3.3 × 10(14) to 2 × 10(15) ions/cm(2), and the energies range from 190 to 380 keV. Refractive index, extinction coefficient, and losses on guided propagation are(More)
Computations with the rigorous differential method show that single gratings made by ion implantation have a diffraction efficiency in the +1 transmitted order under TE illumination of only 0.78%. The insertion of such gratings into multilayer dielectric Fabry-Perot cavities leads to an enhancement of the free-space diffraction efficiency. Different designs(More)
Tantalum pentoxide (Ta(2)O(5)) layers made by ion plating are implanted with a high fluence of keV Ti, Li, and Er ions. The resulting refractive-index profiles are given from the analysis of guided-wave propagation conditions. A comparison with spectrophotometric measurements is presented. All the implanted layers present low losses (extinction coefficient(More)
The Water Framework Directive and the Ecophyto 2018 plan provides for measures against water chemical pollution. In the agricultural context, pesticide are a real stress for surrounding environment. Measures have been taken to reduce this stress, namely the reduction of chemical application, and the implantation of buffer zones like artificial wetland at(More)
Enhancement of the free-space diffraction efficiency of gratings made by titanium-ion implantation is demonstrated both theoretically and experimentally. Indeed, by insertion of a grating into a multilayer dielectric Fabry-Perot cavity, the diffraction efficiency can be increased to as much as 24 times that of a single grating. The sensitivity of the(More)
