Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a malignancy with poor prognosis. WNT/β-catenin signaling dysregulation, especially β-catenin overactivation and WNT antagonist silencing, is associated with RCC carcinogenesis and progression. However, the role of WNT ligands in RCC has not yet been determined. We screened 19 WNT ligands from normal kidney and RCC cell lines(More)
A full vector complex coupled mode theory (CMT) for the analysis of tilted fiber gratings is presented. With the combination of the perfectly matched layer (PML) and the perfectly reflecting boundary (PRB), the continuous radiation modes are well represented by a set of discrete complex modes. Simulation of coupling to radiation modes is greatly simplified(More)
A rigorous full-vector analysis based on the finite-difference mode-matching method is presented for three-dimensional optical wave propagation problems. The computation model is facilitated by a perfectly matched layer (PML) terminated with a perfectly reflecting boundary condition (PRB). The complex modes including both the guided and the radiation fields(More)
To facilitate the analysis of radiation mode couplings, quasi leaky mode approximations were utilized in coupled-mode analysis. The key to effectively and accurately apply this approach is how to well approximate radiation modes by the quasi leaky modes in an equivalent closed waveguide model. In this paper, the principle, applicability and accuracy of the(More)
We present theoretical results of quarter- and half-wave plates based on two-dimensional photonic crystal that has a polarization-independent self-collimating effect. The designed low-order wave plates have achromatic characteristic with high phase accuracy of +/-0.01pi in the normalized frequency range 0.273-0.281alpha/lambda, which is about 45 nm in the(More)
The single mode Fabry-Perot (FP) semiconductor lasers are investigated systematically by a rigorous time-domain theoretical model based on the transfer matrix method. Static and high-speed dynamic performances under direct modulation and strong external optical feedbacks are simulated for both symmetric and asymmetric longitudinal structures of the lasers.(More)
We have investigated a hybrid plasmonic-photonic mode in Si and Ge channel waveguides over the 1.55-8.0 μm wavelength range. A 10-nm Cu ribbon was buried midway within a Si₃N₄ "photonic slot" centered in the semiconductor strip. For the TMo mode, propagation lengths L of several millimeters are predicted for a waveguide cross-section of about 0.7λ/n x(More)
Design optimization of a novel integrated bi-directional (BiDi) triplexer filter based on planar lightwave circuit (PLC) for fiber-to-the premise (FTTP) applications is described. A multi-mode interference (MMI) device is used to filter the up-stream 1310nm signal from the down-stream 1490nm and 1555nm signals. An array waveguide grating (AWG) device(More)
