An ultracompact near-field optical probe is described that is based on a single, integrated assembly consisting of a gallium nitride (GaN) light-emitting diode (LED), a microlens, and a cantilever assembly containing a hollow pyramidal probe with a s...

A design for an optical-nanocavity optimized for use with surface-bound light-emitting materials (2008)
Journal Article

We model the modification in the spontaneous emission (SE) rate of an emitting dipole placed on the surface of a two-dimensional (2D) L3 optical nanocavity using 3D FDTD calculations. We show that by introducing a concave region into the cavity-surfa... Read More about A design for an optical-nanocavity optimized for use with surface-bound light-emitting materials.

Observation of the β-phase in two short-chain oligofluorenes (2008)
Journal Article
Tsoi, W. C., Charas, A., Cadby, A. J., Khalil, G., Adawi, A. M., Iraqi, A., …Lidzey, D. G. (2008). Observation of the β-phase in two short-chain oligofluorenes. Advanced Functional Materials, 18(4), 600-606. doi:10.1002/adfm.200700530

The polymer poly(9,9-dioctylfluorene) (PF8) can be driven into a morphological form termed the β-phase that has enhanced planarity and increased structural rigidity. We show that the β-phase can be generated in two different fluorene oligomers; a flu... Read More about Observation of the β-phase in two short-chain oligofluorenes.
