Optical Characterization of Organic Gain Materials for UV-emitting Hybrid Complex Coupled VCSELs
In this thesis, optical gain measurement setup based on variable stripe length method is designed, implemented and improved. The setup is characterized using inorganic and organic samples. The optical gain of spiro-quaterphenyl is calculated and compared with measurements from the setup. Films with various thicknesses of spiro-quaterphenyl, methoxy-spiro-quaterphenyl and phenoxy-spiro-quaterphenyl are deposited by a vacuum vapor deposition technique forming asymmetric slab waveguides. The optical properties, laser ...
Highly Sensitive Sensor Based On Intracavity Laser Absorption Spectroscopy By Means of Relative Intensity Noise
This thesis concerns with the main aspects of medical trace molecules detection by means of intracavity laser absorption spectroscopy (ICLAS), namely with the equirements for highly sensitive, highly selective, low price, and compact size sensor. A novel two modes semiconductor laser sensor is demonstrated. Its operation principle is based on the competition between these two modes. The sensor sensitivity is improved when the sample is placed inside the two modes laser cavity, and the competition between the two modes ...
Transfer characteristics of white light interferometers and confocal microscopes
Optical profilers present significant advantages in comparison with stylus profilometry and scanning probe microscopy due to their non-contacting technique and their ability to scan the entire measurement field simultaneously. However, optical profilers suffer from different systematical artifacts. The dissertation investigates the transfer characteristics of optical profilometers, namely white light interferometers and confocal microscopes. In white light interferometry dispersion in the optical system leads to ...
Development, Evaluation and Optimization of Fabrication Processes for Daylight Guiding Systems Based on Micromirror Arrays
In this work, fabrication processes for daylight guiding systems based on micromirror arrays are developed, evaluated and optimized.Two different approaches are used: At first, nanoimprint lithography is used to fabricate large area micromirrors by means of Substrate Conformal Imprint Lithography (SCIL).Secondly,a new lithography technique is developed using a novel bi-layered photomask to fabricate large area micromirror arrays. The experimental results showing a reproducible stable process, high yield, and is ...
Optical Sensor Array based Nanospectrometer: Fabrication of high resolution 3D NanoImprint master templates and bonding of Fabry-Pérot filter array onto photodetector array
In the field of optical spectroscopy, spectrometers are high resolution optical sensors that have emerged as a platform for a wide range of application fields. Commercially available spectrometers are bulky and expensive. Hence, this limits its integration into modern mobile and wearable devices. To overcome this limitation, miniaturization of spectrometers is an interesting target for a wide range of emerging applications. The most attractive concept of fabricating miniaturized spectrometers is the Fabry-Pérot filter ...
