NRN097 - EDC-Mediated Oligonucleotide Immobilization on a Long Period Grating Optical Biosensor
We present the development and simplification of label-free fiber optic biosensors based on immobilization of oligonucleotides on dual-peak long period gratings (dLPGs). This improvement is the result of a simplification of biofunctionalization methodology.
NRN097 - Enhanced Flat Broadband Optical Chaos Using Low-Cost VCSEL and Fiber Ring Resonator
Low-cost vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) and semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) have been explored experimentally in a setup with a fiber ring resonator to generate flat broadband chaos. The effect of the frequency detuning between the fiber grating frequency and the free-running VCSEL's frequency, and the bias current of the SOA on the bandwidth of chaos has been studied.
NRN102 - Stochastic finite elements of discretely parameterized random systems on domains with boundary uncertainty.
The problem of representing random fields describing the material and boundary properties of the physical system at discrete points of the spatial domain is studied in the context of linear stochastic finite element method.
NRN102 - Rotational and ply-level uncertainty in response of composite shallow conical shells
This paper presents the quantification of rotational and ply level uncertainty of random natural frequency for laminated composite conical shells by using surrogate modelling approach.
NRN105 - Optics Letters paper on strained silicon in collaboration with RWTH group:.
We measure the voltage-dependent phase shift in silicon waveguides strained by a silicon nitride layer and show that, in our measurements, the phase shift is due to free carrier accumulation inside the waveguides.
