A new statistical theory is introduced that takes into account the coupling between grain size, shape and crystallographic texture during deformation of polycrystalline microstructures. A “grain size orientation distribution function” (GSODF) is used to encode the probability density of finding a grain size D along a direction (given by unit vector n) in(More)
We present a numerical simulation of second-harmonic generation (SHG) from a nonlinear magnetic metamaterial. By inserting a second-order nonlinear material in the high local field area of magnetic metamaterial, which consists of periodic arrays of paired thin silver strips, the convertion efficiency of SHG has been significantly enhanced by almost four(More)

Energy efficient buildings rely on simulation to predict energy performance. However, problems associated with simulation tools can lead to surprises when discrepancies are found between actual and predicted building energy performance; this frustrates building owners, investors, and designers. A probabilistic method of risk assessment for the calculation(More)
Here we demonstrate the impacts of emission mechanisms on the light confinements in open systems. Taking the oval-shaped cavities as examples, we show that the enhancements in quality (Q) factors are usually associated with the universal emissions. When the coupled resonances have similar far field patterns, the Q factor of the long-lived resonance has the(More)
Chirality in microcavities has recently shown its bright future in optical sensing and microsized coherent light sources. The key parameters for such applications are the high quality (Q) factor and large chirality. However, the previous reported chiral resonances are either low Q modes or require very special cavity designs. Here we demonstrate a novel,(More)
Recently, color generation in resonant nanostructures have been intensively studied. Despite of their exciting progresses, the structural colors are usually generated by the plasmonic resonances of metallic nanoparticles. Due to the inherent plasmon damping, such plasmonic nanostructures are usually hard to create very distinct color impressions. Here we(More)
According to the reliability and safety requirement for aircraft, fault detection and isolation (FDI) is essential to improve the fault tolerant performance of the navigation system. However, conventional principal component analysis (PCA) method does not consider the fault detection of the dynamic system and a high rate of false alarm rate. This paper(More)
Integrated optical power splitters are one of the fundamental building blocks in photonic integrated circuits. Conventional multimode interferometer-based power splitters are widely used as they have reasonable footprints and are easy to fabricate. However, it is challenging to realize arbitrary split ratios, especially for multi-outputs. In this Letter, an(More)
