  • Nano-sized fine droplets of liquid crystal (LC) were obtained by phase separation of nematic LC in UV curing polymer. The polymer composite had a high transparency in the infrared region. The fine droplets responded to an electric field causing a change in birefringence. Output power change was brought about by the generated retardation between two polarizations, parallel and perpendicular to the applied electric field. This differs from the composite containing much larger droplets, where output depends on the degree of scattering. The birefringence changed by 0.001 at the applied voltage of 7.5 V/{micro}m.
  • Attention is given to multiple species CARS in turbulent jet flames, simultaneous measurements of temperature and density in air flows using UV laser spectroscopy, a combination of multispecies Raman scattering with molecular fluorescence, planar laser-induced fluorescence diagnostics for large scale test facilities, evidence of local stagnation in supersonic mixing layers using 1D laser Rayleigh and Raman scattering, vorticity field measurements using laser induced photochemical anemometry, and combustion diagnostics by 2D laser induced fluorescence using tunable excimer lasers. Attention is also given to a single laser apparatus for writing patterns into unseeded air, single exposure double frame particle image velocimeters, holographicmore » recording of 3D flow configurations for particle image velocimetry, and flow field diagnostics by spectrally filtered Rayleigh scattering.« less
  • The effect of pulsed laser annealing of ion-implanted semiconductors was discovered in the late 1970's. As a result researchers concentrated on the fundamental problems related to the absorption of laser radiation localized in time and space and at the possible application of lasers to microelectronics. Experiments on laser annealing have raised a series of fundamental questions, including the role of dense electron-hole plasmas in fast melting semiconductors, the stages of the melting process and the mechanism of laser-induced amorphization. To answer these questions, which are only a small part of the full range of problems, it is vitally important tomore » develop experimental techniques for the diagnostics of semiconductor surfaces and phase transitions. This book analyzes the current concepts of laser beam interaction with semiconductors and the potential of using optical methods in diagnostics. Also discussed is the new information which may come from optical techniques on the structure of semiconductor crystal surfaces and phase transitions.« less
