(2015-07-21)Vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) are among the best choices for high beam quality semiconductor lasers. By designing a VCSEL array for uniform current injection and having the output coupler on the substrate ...
Design and fabrication of nanostructures for thermal conductivity measurements and picosecond acoustics (2010-08-20)This thesis describes three fabrication processes for measurement in three different phonon applications. First, fabrication of sub-10nm fluorocarbon films is presented for thin film thermal conductivity measurement. Thermal ...
(2014-09-16)This thesis examines the design and fabrication of a high output power, surface-emitting laser, known as a vertical external cavity surface-emitting laser (VECSEL). A VECSEL utilizes a free space cavity along with larger ...
(2017-04-28)Repeated mechanical failure due to accidental impact and lack of sensory feedback are one of the main reasons why people with upper-limb amputations abandon commercially-available prosthetic hands. To address this problem, ...
