A quantum key distribution system –employing a key time-bin qubit and a security-pass polarization-randomized qubit– is shown to overcome a wide class of intercept-resend attacks adopting the use of faked-state light; including attacks based on blinding of single-photon avalanche detectors (SPADs).
An optical mode converter based on asymmetric dual channel waveguides is reported and analyzed. The first channel is infiltrated with nematic liquid crystal (NLC) material while the second one has BK7 glass core. The first higher order mode of the NLC core is coupled to the fundamental mode of the neighboring core with high coupling […]
Great research work has been studied for cancer detection due to its high death rate. In this paper, a novel design of photonic crystal fiber (PCF) biosensor based on surface plasmon resonance (SPR) is introduced and numerically analyzed for cancer cell detection. Full vectorial finite element method (FVFEM) is used throughout the numerical analysis of […]
Dual D-shaped (DD-shaped) plasmonic photonic crystal fiber (PCF) for refractive index sensing is designed and analyzed. In the proposed design, two gold nano-rods are attached to the two etched surfaces of the PCF to enhance the sensing characteristics. The surface plasmon (SP) modes excited at the metal/dielectric interfaces are strongly coupled to the PCF core […]
The optical characteristics of Si dome-tapered nanowires (NWs) solar cell (SC) are reported and analyzed by using finite difference time domain method. The geometrical parameters are studied to maximize the light absorption and hence the ultimate efficiency and short circuit current density of the reported NWs SC. The dome-shaped NWs show better absorption enhancement than […]
SC06 – Absorption Enhancement of GaAs Thin Film Solar Cell using Hemisphere Core-shell Nanoparticles
A novel design of GaAs solar cell (SC) is proposed and analyzed. Hemisphere core shell structures are placed over the surface of the SC to harvest more energy and increase the solar cell efficiency. The GaAs and GaSb are used as core/shell materials to increase the wavelength coupling between the dual cores of the proposed […]
