Quotes

..."Tunability will enable metasurfaces to be applied to displays, optical storage and communications," Ye tells Phys.org. "Also, we're considering if the optical properties we've observed can be extended to other frequency spectra – for example, the terahertz range, since doing so may help us to build terahertz devices. In closing, Ye says that other areas of research, such as high-field laser physics, might also benefit from their study."
"Accordingly, there is a need to provide an optical fiber, an optical transmission system, and a method for measuring the optical fiber in which even when the fundamental and higher-order propagation modes of the optical fiber are used for the optical transmission, the effective core area is large and the bending loss is small in each propagation mode."
"In one embodiment, a multi-layer photonic structure may include alternating layers of high index material and low index material having a form [H(LH).sup.N] where, H is a layer of high index material, L is a layer of low index material and N is a number of pairs of layers of high index material and layers of low index material. N may be an integer .gtoreq.1. The low index dielectric material may have an index of refraction n.sub.L from about 1.3 to about 2.5. The high index dielectric material may have an index of refraction n.sub.H from about 1.8 to about 3.5, wherein n.sub.H>n.sub.L and the multi-layer photonic structure comprises and a reflectivity band of greater than about 200 nm for light having angles of incidence from about 0 degrees to about 80 degrees relative to the multi-layer photonic structure. The multi-layer photonic structure may be incorporated into a paint or coating system thereby forming an omni-directional reflective paint or coating."
