Organic materials have revolutionized optoelectronics by their processability, flexibility and low cost, with application to light-emitting devices for full-colour screens, solar cells and lasers. Some low-dimensional organic semiconductor structures exhibit properties resembling those of inorganics, such as polarized emission and enhanced(More)
We employ simple geometrical rules to design a set of nanotopographies able to interfere with focal adhesion establishment during neuronal differentiation. Exploiting nanoimprint lithography techniques on cyclic-olefin-copolymer films, we demonstrate that by varying a single topographical parameter the orientation and maturation of focal adhesions can be(More)
We present what is to our knowledge the first active-passive monolithically integrated 16×16 switch. The active InP/InGaAsP elements provide semiconductor optical amplifier gates in a multistage rearrangeably nonblocking switch design. Thirty-two representative connections, including the shortest, longest, and comprehensive range of intermediate paths have(More)
A straightforward, electron-beam induced synthesis and patterning approach to the in situ generation of CdS nanocrystals in nanocomposite films and light-emitting electrospun nanofibers is used. Smartly combining room-temperature nanoimprinting, electrospinning, and electron-beam decomposition of nanocrystal precursors and subsequent nucleation of(More)
We demonstrate for the first time WDM multi-path routing through a monolithically integrated InP/InGaAsP 8 × 8 space and wavelength selective cross-connect. Data channels are dynamically routed from four input ports to the same output port with excellent OSNR from 27.0 to 31.1 dB. Representative data paths are evaluated in terms of optical power penalty.(More)
A control plane is implemented to allow the first (to our knowledge) demonstration of scheduling and power leveling in a monolithically integrated 8×8 switch for multi-path and multi-wavelength routing on a data packet timescale. Automated control and path assessment is enabled under dynamically reconfigured wavelength-and-space routing. Eight data(More)
Nanoparticle image velocimetry (nano-PIV), based on total internal reflection fluorescent microscopy, is very useful to investigate fluid flows within approximately 100 nm from a surface; but so far it has only been applied to flow over smooth surfaces. Here we show that it can also be applied to flow over a topologically structured surface, provided that(More)
An InP monolithically integrated wavelength selector based on combinations of integrated AWGs and SOAs selects one out of up to 16 input channels. Loss-compensated, error-free WDM channel selection operation with <2.3  dB penalties is reported, with an OSNR of up to 32.5  dB/0.1  nm.
We analyse the transition from single mode waveguiding through to the whispering gallery regime in open waveguide micro-bends. 2D FDTD simulations reveal a critical sensitivity of bend loss and waveguiding properties to waveguide width. Vectorial mode-solver analysis identifies a regime of significant and deleterious mode mixing, even for structures(More)
