The application of Brownian dynamics for simulation of transient protein-protein interactions is reviewed. The review focuses on theoretical basics of Brownian dynamics method, its particular implementations, advantages and drawbacks of the method. The outlook for future development of Brownian dynamics-based simulation techniques is discussed. Special(More)
Waveguides in LiNbO3 are realized by a soft proton exchange (SPE) process with use of a melt of stearic acid highly diluted by lithium stearate. No phase transitions are formed when alpha-phase waveguides are obtained by SPE. The alpha-phase presents the same crystalline structure as that of pure LiNbO3 crystal, and it maintains the excellent nonlinear and(More)
With the help of the most advanced algorithms we obtained many dozens of multilayer dispersive mirror designs to empirically find limits for the maximum achievable negative value of the group delay dispersion (GDD). This value depends on the total thickness of coatings and layer material combination. Nb(2)O(5)/SiO(2) and Ta(2)O(50/SiO(2) combinations are(More)
By using x-ray diffraction and optical waveguide characterization, it has been shown that proton-exchanged layers on Z-cut LiNbO(3) can have as many as seven different crystallographic phases that are stable at room temperature. This study allows us to establish some correlation between fabrication parameters and the crystalline structure, the index(More)
