Holographic or diffractive optical components are widely implemented using spatial light modulators within optical tweezers to form multiple, and/or modified traps. We show that by further modifying the hologram design to account for residual aberrations, the fidelity of the focused beams can be significantly improved, quantified by a spot sharpness metric.… (More)
A distributed Problem Solving Environment (PSE) is proposed to help users solve partial differential equation (PDE) based problems in scientific computing. The system inputs a problem description and outputs a program flow, a C-language source code for the problem and also a document for the program. Each module is distributed on distributed computers. The… (More)
Nanoscale features as small as 65 ± 5 nm have been formed reproducibly by using 520 nm femtosecond pulsed excitation of a 4,4'-bis(din -butylamino)biphenyl chromophore to initiate crosslinking in a triacrylate blend. Dosimetry studies of the photoinduced polymerization were performed on chromophores with sizable two-photon absorption cross-sections at 520… (More)
We present a micropatterning method for the automatic transfer and arbitrary positioning of computer-generated three-dimensional structures within a substrate. The Gerchberg-Saxton algorithm and an electrically addressed spatial light modulator (SLM) are used to create and display phase holograms, respectively. A holographic approach to light manipulation… (More)
The method of recording data in a volume memory determines the spatial frequency content. We use a threedimensional transfer function approach to show that this has serious implications for the choice of readout system. In particular, one cannot use a ref lection confocal system to read a photopolymer-based memory. A solution to this problem is proposed.
A problem-solving environment (PSE) for a distributed high-performance computing (HPC) is proposed to help users to work on distributed computer environment. When users access and use distributed computers for scientific computations, the PSE tells users which computers are available and appropriate for their specific application software by using hardware… (More)
