The ability to generate efficient giga-terahertz coherent acoustic phonons with femtosecond laser makes acousto-optics a promising candidate for ultrafast light processing, which faces electronic device limits intrinsic to complementary metal oxide semiconductor technology. Modern acousto-optic devices, including optical mode conversion process between(More)
A simple procedure to elaborate robust ultraflat gold surface without clean room facilities is presented. Self-assembled 3-mercaptopropytriethoxysilane (MPTMS) on silicon was used as a buffer layer on which gold was sputtered using a common sputter-coating apparatus. The optimization of the sample position into the chamber of the sputtering machine yielded(More)
Extracting characteristic dimensions from mounded surfaces such as grain size or intergrain lengths is usually made by statistical analysis. Different statistical functions are used in the literature to extract characteristic lengths. The main issue is that depending on the choice of the statistical function the results can be very different. In this paper,(More)
We first describe the picosecond acoustic interferometry study of GaAs with twocolors pump-probe laser pulses. The dependence of the generation process on the pump wavelength and the detection process on the probe wavelength both can cause the shift in the phase of the Brillouin signal. Secondly, in order to distinguish the short high frequency wideband(More)
Bisphosphonates form self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) spontaneously on stainless steel, silicon, and titanium oxidized surfaces. We used contact angle measurements, atomic force microscopy, and X-ray reflectivity analysis to study the formation of SAMs on a model surface of ultraflat titanium (rms = 0.2 nm). The results were extended to standard materials(More)
