The latest developments in mobile computing technology have changed user preferences for computing. However, in spite of all the advancements in the recent years, Smart Mobile Devices (SMDs) are still low potential computing devices which are limited in memory capacity, CPU speed and battery power lifetime. Therefore, Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) employs(More)
The inscription of Bragg gratings in chalcogenide (As(2)Se(3)) wires with subwavelength diameter is proposed and demonstrated. A modified transverse holographic method employing He-Ne laser light at a wavelength of λ(w)=633 nm allows the writing of Bragg grating reflectors in the 1550 nm band. The gratings reach an extinction ratio of 40 dB in transmission(More)
The latest developments in mobile computing technology have enabled intensive applications on the modern Smartphones. However, such applications are still constrained by limitations in processing potentials, storage capacity and battery lifetime of the Smart Mobile Devices (SMDs). Therefore, Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) leverages the application processing(More)
Virtualization efficiently manages the ever-increasing demand for storage, computing, and networking resources in large-scale Cloud Data Centers. Virtualization attains multifarious resource management objectives including proactive server maintenance, load balancing, pervasive service availability, power management, and fault tolerance by virtual machine(More)
We investigate the onset of nonlinear effects in hybrid polymer-chalcogenide optical microwires and show that they provide an enhanced Kerr nonlinearity while simultaneously mitigating stimulated Brillouin scattering as compared to both chalcogenide and silica optical fibers. It is shown in particular that the polymer cladding surrounding the microwire(More)
We present polymer (PMMA) cladded chalcogenide (As(2)Se(3)) hybrid microwires that realize optical parametric four-wave mixing (FWM) with wavelength conversion bandwidth as broad as 190 nm and efficiency as high as 21 dB at peak input power levels as low as 70 mW. This represents 3-30 × increase in bandwidth and 30-50 dB improvement in conversion efficiency(More)
We propose and demonstrate an all-chalcogenide microwire Raman laser, the first to our knowledge. The gain medium is provided by the Raman effect in a chalcogenide microwire and two Fabry-Perot resonant media are tested for lasing: (1) a cavity made out of a Fresnel reflection at one end of the microwire and a silver coated, broadband mirror at the other(More)
