Distributed Feedback Fiber Laser Pumped by Multimode Diode Lasers
Researchers at the University of Arizona College of Optical Sciences and Canada's Carleton University recently succeeded in fabricating high reflectivity (>99%) Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBGs) into phosphate glass fibers using UV light and a phase mask technique. With this new manufacturing technique, fiber lasers can be created as single monolithic...

All-Fiber Multicore Fiber Laser Devices
Researchers at the University of Arizona have developed a compact, power-scalable, alignment-free fiber laser that takes a new approach to stabilizing phase-locked operation of multi-core fiber lasers by completely removing all free space optical components. This high-brightness, all-fiber laser package uses passive optical fiber spliced at both ends...

Carbon Nanostructure Synthesis from Carbon-Excess Explosives in Supercrital Fluid
This invention relates to the synthesis of carbon nanostructures such as graphene, fullerenes and nano-tubes, and more particular to the synthesis of such nanostructures from carbon-excess explosives in supercritical fluid. Background: Carbon nanostructures are synthesized from carbon-excess explosives having a negative oxygen balance. A supercritical...

Carbon Ion Beam Growth of Isotopically-Enriched Graphene and Isotope-Junctions
Isotopically-enriched graphene and isotope junctions are epitaxially grown on a catalyst substrate using a focused carbon ion beam technique. The focused carbon ion beam is filtered to pass substantially a single ion species including a single desired carbon isotope. The ion beam and filtering together provide a means to selectively isotopically-enrich...

Fabrication of Pillared Graphene
This invention is a method of fabricating pillared graphene. This is accomplished by first constraining a layer of fullerenes between graphene sheets (the proto structure). Tether molecules may be employed to help chemically bind the fullerenes to the graphene at attachment points. Energy is applied to the proto structure via chemical reaction, thermal...
