We present a polarization rotation and coupling scheme that rotates a TE(0) mode in a silicon waveguide and simultaneously couples the rotated mode to a hybrid plasmonic (HP(0)) waveguide mode. Such a polarization rotation can be realized with a partially etched asymmetric hybrid plasmonic waveguide consisting of a silicon strip waveguide, a thin oxide(More)
We present the design of a three-dimensional (3D) polarization beam splitter (PBS) with a copper nanorod array placed between two silicon waveguides. The localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) of a metal nanorod array selectively cross-couples transverse electric (TE) mode to the coupler waveguide, while transverse magnetic (TM) mode passes through the(More)
Given the limited set of empirical input/output data from flash memory cells, we describe a technique to statistically analyze different sources that cause the mean-shifts and random fluctuations in the read values of the cells. In particular, for a given victim cell, we are able to quantify the amount of interference coming from any arbitrarily chosen set(More)
This paper discusses a technique for analyzing real data from flash memory cells. The goal is to identify and isolate various sources that cause the shifts and variations of the read values with respect to the intended write values. The analysis reveals how the neighboring cells interfere with the victim cell. Using the proposed analysis technique, the(More)
We tried to explore the possibility of using deformation-based interaction as a new input method to remote control. We selected eight basic commands to control TV and design deformation-based gestures for each command based on prior studies regarding organic user interface. A prototype, the FlexRemote, was made and tested by informal user study. The study(More)
We demonstrate high resonant absorption of visible light with a plasmonic nanocavity chain structure fabricated through resistless nanoimprinting in metal (RNIM). The RNIM approach provides a simple, reproducible, and accurate means to fabricate metallic nanopatterns with high fidelity. The nanocavities are shown to be efficiently excited using normally(More)
This paper provides statistical analysis on real data taken from state-of-the-art MLC NAND flash memory cells. The analysis allows separation of different sources affecting the output values of the cell. Interference due to floating gate coupling is isolated. The effect of noise and interference on the victim cell after repeated program/erase cycles as well(More)
Metal nanostructures are the main building blocks of metamaterials and plasmonics which show many extraordinary properties not existing in nature. A simple and widely applicable method that can directly pattern metals with silicon molds without the need of resists, using pressures of <4 MPa and temperatures of 25-150 °C is reported. Three-dimensional(More)
An access to digital signage displaying contents with a mobile phone has been in the limelight to improve advertising effects of the digital signage. There have been developed several methods to transfer digital signage contents to a mobile phone, but these methods are still lack of the cognitive convenience for users. In this paper, we design a novel(More)
Hybrid plasmonic (HP) modes allow strong optical field confinement and simultaneously low propagation loss, offering a potentially compact and efficient platform for on-chip photonic applications. However, their implementation is hampered by the low coupling efficiency between dielectric guided modes and HP modes, caused by mode mismatch and polarization(More)
