Measuring the Electromagnetic Properties of Structures with Visible Light
Researchers at the University of Arizona have demonstrated a modeling system for measuring the Radar Cross Section (RCS) of structural models using visible wavelengths of light. This makes it possible to use very small scale models of very large objects, and accurately determine the RCS in a reasonable time frame. Background: RCS is the measure...

Implementing Multiplication And Division In Optics
This invention is an all-optical approach to implementing mathematical operations on a circuit board in a computer. It uses the non-linear response to light of certain types of thin film materials in a novel approach to multiply & divide numbers in an all-optical mathematical circuit. The approach is an analogue method which implies a constant time...

Amplification of the Incidence Angles of a Light Beam to Cover up to 4pi Steradians
This invention employs a means of preventing total internal reflection and allows the beam to exit the material to steer at a wider diffraction angle, increasing the incidence angle of a light beam for spatial light modulators and integrated phase arrays. Background: Non-mechanical beam steering requires efficient diffraction and a high angle of...
