Quantum-chemical calculations coupled with a tight binding band model are used to study the charge carrier mobilities in oligoacene crystals. The transfer integrals for all nonzero interactions in four crystalline oligoacenes ͑naphthalene, anthracene, tetracene, and pentacene͒ were calculated, and then used to construct the excess electron and hole band… (More)
We present the flat focusing mirror - the dielectric mirrors capable to focus and image the narrow beams in reflections. The mirrors are flat, and transversally invariant, i.e. have no optical axis. We consider two different configurations of such mirrors: 1) Bragg-like mirrors, consisting of structure of specially designed dielectric layers; 2)… (More)
The control of spatial propagation properties of narrow light beams such as divergence, focusing or imaging are main objectives in optics and photonics. In this letter, we propose and demonstrate experimentally a flat focusing mirror, based on an especially designed dielectric structure without any optical axis. More generally, it also enables imaging any… (More)
A novel application of chirped dielectric mirrors for narrow beam focalization is proposed and demonstrated numerically and experimentally. Analogy to temporal dispersion compensation by chirped dielectric mirrors is discussed.
Recently the beam focusing in reflection from chirped dielectric mirror has been proposed and demonstrated, where the negative (anomalous) diffraction is responsible for this flat mirror focusing. For a strong focusing performance (large focal distance), a wide angular range of strong (negative) angular dispersion is required. We show that a defect layer in… (More)
We predict and show the existence of unlocked evanescent waves in two dimensional periodic structures. In a one dimensional periodic structure an evanescent mode are located either at the center or at the boundary of the Brillouin Zone, and the real part of wave-vectors is locked either to zero or to the modulation vector of the periodicity. However, we… (More)
An approach to potential improvements in magnetic field shielding for a gradient coil system with cylindrical geometry is presented, utilizing "supershielding" conditions for the currents on both the primary and the secondary coils. It is demonstrated that the field can be strongly suppressed everywhere outside a cylindrical shield coil radius, even though… (More)
