Novel Materials and Devices15 Videos
We design and evaluate the performance of optical filters that are built from one-dimensional photonic crystals (PhCs) amenable for integration into optical networks based on wavelength division multiplexing (WDM). The photonic heterostructures comprise the integration of a ferroelectric (BaTiO3), a dielectric (Y2O3), and a critical high-temperature superconductor material (YBa2Cu3O7−X) in between. Such nanosystems can allow […]
NM01 – Machine Learning Assisted Material and Device Parameter Extraction From Measurements Of Thin Film Semiconductor Devices
The simulation of thin film semiconductor devices is challenging, partly due to the unknown material and device parameters. In this contribution, we present two different approaches to determine the missing material and device parameters from measurements. They both have in common that they are based on machine learning (ML) and numerical models. First, a numerical […]
NM02 – Impact of random alloy fluctuations on the electronic and optical properties of c-plane AlxGa1−xN/AlN quantum wells
We present a theoretical study of the electronic and optical properties of c-plane AlxGa1−xN/AlN quantum wells emitting in the ultraviolet-A (UV-A) to UV-C spectral range. Special attention is paid to the impact of alloy fluctuations on the results. We find that random alloy fluctuations in (Al,Ga)N are already sufficient to cause strong carrier localization effects.

Directed Infrared Counter Measure (DIRCM) laser laboratory setups are used to mimic the real life DIRCM system and IR heat-seeking missile engagement scenarios in isolated laboratory environments. Typically, the output beam of a mid-infrared (Mid-IR) laser source is modulated in time using an acousto-optic (AO) modulator (AOM). Following the AOM in the optical path, within […]
