A stability analysis of bistable laser diodes, which gives a first analytical explanation of the recently observed high-speed bistable switching and self-pulsation, is presented by introducing two key parameters. It is shown that switching and self-pulsation are associated with two time scales. Turn-on and turn-off dynamics can be characterized by two(More)
A realistic nonspherical model for Emiliania huxleyi (EHUX) is built, based on electron micrographs of coccolithophore cells. The Inherent Optical Properties (IOP) of the EHUX are then calculated numerically by using the discrete dipole approximation. The coccolithophore model includes a near-spherical core with the refractive index of 1.04 + m i j, and a(More)
The principles of optical fiber communication and optical data storage have evolved over the past decade into industry standards for transmission, distribution, storage, and archival of digital audio, multimedia, and computer data. The fundamentals of these sophisticated systems are traditionally taught in the lecture hall, and laboratory exposure to the(More)
