  • Design of Programmable LED Based Phototherapy System

    • Abstract: Light based systems are frequently used in the field of medicine for diagnostic and surgical procedures, medical photography, phototherapy, etc. Phototherapy involves the use of light energy for the treatment of physical or mental illnesses. Illumination parameters such as wavelength and dose of therapy can be varied to have distinct effects on cells and tissues. This has necessitated the need to design a system which is programmable for various parameters related to therapy and can also be used by people at large for biomedical applications. The paper presents the design and implementation of a portable, hand-held and programmable Light Emitting Diode (LED) based phototherapy system using embedded technology. The system is designed around the ARM based TM4C123GH6PM microcontroller processor. The microcontroller has been programmed to allow for selection of various parameters such as frequency, duty cycle, and time of exposure. The matrix keypad interface and liquid crystal display (LCD) offer the ease of human interface. An LED driver circuit has been efficiently designed to modulate the output power of LED. Further, Super Bright LED (SLED) of wavelength 633 nm has been successfully tested and results of optical characterization including spectral and spatial response have been presented in the results section. The designed system successfully achieves the programmable parameters required for dose optimisation required for enhancing the therapeutic effects of a phototherapy system.

  • Suppression of Nonlinear XPM Phenomenon by Selection of Appropriate
           Transmit Power Levels in the DWDM System

    • Abstract: In the 21st century, it is not possible to implement fully optical communication systems without software tools to test the system for all unwanted phenomena occurring during real-time operation. With ever-increasing transmission rate and low latency, nonlinear phenomena are associated with higher power levels and smaller spacing between channels began to appear in OFs (optical fibers). This paper aims to implement a four-channel DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplex) system on which the nonlinear XPM (cross-phase modulation) phenomenon will be investigated. At the output of the system, we will eliminate the phenomenon (partially suppressed) by the appropriate choice of transmitting power levels (power levels operating at 193,025 THz to 193,175 THz) when the OF is dispersed. In optical transfer data systems a system is functioning if the measured BER parameter is not bigger than 10−12.

  • The Experimental Demonstration of Correcting the Atmospheric Dispersion
           Using Image Processing Based on Edge Extension

    • Abstract: We present an image processing algorithm based on edge extension to correct the influence of atmospheric dispersion. The Elden model is used to estimate the image dispersion index caused by atmospheric dispersion and the image affected by the atmospheric dispersion is regarded as the results of the original image convolution operation. When the direct convolution is used to compensate the blur of star, border effect and ill-posed problem make the result unacceptable. To solve these problems, we use image preprocessing and perform an edge extension method for images before the convolution. The simulated analysis and experimental results from a 300 mm telescope system show that the proposed method can effectively correct the influence of atmospheric dispersion even under relatively low signal to noise ratio (SNR

  • Surf Zone Mapping Using Multirotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Imagery

    • Abstract: Surf zone is a sand area that stretches inside a breaking wave to limit the rise and fall of waves on the beach. Advanced technology in the geomatics field offers a fast and accurate solution to produce surf zone maps. The demand for surf zone map is increasing during the monsoon season, especially at coastal areas. Nowadays, the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) or drone has become popular platform in the geospatial and surveying field. The aim of this study is to produce surf zone 3D surface mapping by using a multirotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. There are four phases in this study which are image acquisition, UAV image processing, photogrammetric results, and analysis. The image acquisition was solely obtained using a multirotor UAV based on the photogrammetric concept. The acquired UAV images were processed using commercial software with a specific workflow. Photogrammetric products such as digital elevation model, orthophoto, contour, and surf map zone were produced. The analyses of these results were conducted based on different epochs on the selected months. The accuracy for northing, easting, and height coordinates was 1.026m, 0.838m, and 0.419m, respectively. It can be concluded that the UAV was able to produce a surf zone map with reliable accuracy. This platform is very useful for fast decision making, especially during disaster incidents.

  • A Study on the Fluorescence Properties of New Laser Material--B18H22 in
           SDS Aqueous Solution

    • Abstract: The effect of anionic surfactant sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) on the fluorescence of -B18H22 was studied. The experimental result revealed that the fluorescence of -B18H22 was obviously enhanced with the increase of the concentration of SDS, mainly due to the hydrophobic protection of -B18H22 by SDS. Under the optimum conditions, the fluorescence intensity was proportional to the concentration of -B18H22 in the range of 0-8.0×10−3 mol·L−1 and 8.0×10−3 mol·L−1-3.3×10−2 mol·L−1, respectively. It was observed that a break appeared in the curve of fluorescence intensity with surfactant concentration. The critical micelle concentration (CMC, 7.9×10−3 mol·L−1) of SDS was obtained from this break point in a good agreement with the reported value. The fluorescence intensity increased initially with time and gradually stabilized. The results form the basis for further study of the properties and application of -B18H22 in SDS solutions.

  • Thin Metal Superlens Imaging in Nanolithography

    • Abstract: Superlens imaging system in nanolithography can be regarded as a cascade of two F-P cavities, i.e., a superlens cavity and a dielectric cavity between superlens and introduced mask of high loss, and the transfer function of system is obtained by considering multiple reflections inside the two cavities. For the range of wavevector of interest, the typical high peak of transmission coefficient of superlens coincides with a local minimum of transmission coefficient of dielectric cavity. The peak of transfer function of system corresponds to the peak of transmission coefficient of dielectric cavity. Thin superlens imaging system in nanolithography is analyzed based on transfer function, which can be flattened by simply tuning transmission coefficient of dielectric cavity and superlens cavity. The results are further validated by Finite Element Method (FEM) simulations.

  • Effect of Environmental Parameters on the Performance of Optical Wireless
           Communications

    • Abstract: Free space optical communication systems are the future of the communication systems which can meet the needs of the end users who are demanding high bandwidths to support high-speed communication. These merits are due to its numerous advantages as well as their better performance. This paper studies the effect of environmental parameters like rain, fog, haze, snow, and dust on the performance of optical wireless communications using Opti-system program. This work considers the effect of visibility as well as operating wavelengths on atmospheric attenuation in different weather conditions for free space optical link. For different weather conditions the max distance between transmitter and receiver can also be estimated. The system analysis depicted the better performance of the Multi-Input/Multi-Output (MIMO) configurations compared to Single Input/Single Output (SISO) at different weather conditions.

  • Effect of Measurement of Dew Point Temperature in Moist Air on the
           Absorption Line at 1392.53 nm of Water Vapor

    • Abstract: The HITRAN database (High-Resolution Transmission molecular absorption database) is an extremely helpful reference for selecting lines of molecular species. In the case of water vapor, a particular strong absorption line around λ ≈ 1392.5 nm is suitable for the detection of molecules, not only because of its high strength but also because it is well separated from the neighboring transitions, thus avoiding any overlap. First, we present the optical system that uses a distributed feedback (DFB) laser diode, emitting around λ ≈ 1392.5 nm with a power ≈ 3 mW and linewidth ≤ 10 MHz. For metrological needs, we are looking for a means to control the water vapor concentration in ambient air in near real time and especially when an optical chilled mirror hygrometer is used. The latter instrument is widely used due to its performance with regard to both accuracy and repeatability of measurements. Here, using the molecular absorption device the use of such an instrument is examined from the point of view of its impact on the measurement of relative humidity. This paper reports the measured frequency positions of the observed line at λ = 1392.5337 nm for different air pressures and compares them with the values given in the HITRAN database. In addition, we discuss the possibility of using water vapor detection by spectroscopy to observe the change of the shape and the position of the absorption line produced during measurements of the dew point temperature by the optical chilled mirror hygrometer.

  • Proposal for an SDN-Like Innovative Metro-Access Optical Network
           Architecture

    • Abstract: Today, telecommunication operators are facing an epochal challenge due to the need of higher reconfigurability, flexibility, and dynamicity for their networks. In the latest years, this necessity has been addressed by the introduction of Software-Defined Networking (SDN), mainly in the fields of data centers and core networks. The present work introduces a unified metro-access optical network architecture based on some features inspired by SDN models. The essential aim is to enable bandwidth shared among different passive optical networks (PONs) in order to achieve higher adaptability to increasingly migratory and volatile traffic patterns. Even if the present work is mainly focused on the architecture, several hints for specific implementation of the network nodes are detailed as well in order to demonstrate its feasibility. Several numerical simulations have been performed to assess the performance of the proposed solution both about physical effects and about quality of service. Bit error ratio degradation due to physical impairments has been evaluated and traffic congestion has been estimated in terms of burst loss probability and average throughput.

  • Highly Fluorescent Nitrogen-Doped Graphene Quantum Dots’ Synthesis and
           Their Applications as Fe(III) Ions Sensor

    • Abstract: Nitrogen-doped graphene quantum dots (N-GQDs) with strong blue fluorescence and a high quantum yield of 88.9% were synthesized via a facile one-pot hydrothermal treatment with citric acid (CA) and ethylenediamine (EDA) as carbon and nitrogen sources, respectively. The blue fluorescence emission is independent of the excitation wavelengths. These N-GQDs dispersed well in water and ethyl alcohol and showed a highly selective and sensitive detection of hazardous and toxic Fe3+ in the range of 1600μmol/L to 6000μmol/L through a fluorescence quenching process with a detection limit of 2.37μmol/L. Based on the excellent sensitivity and selectivity of N-GQDs to heavy metal ions, paper-based sensors can be fabricated by inkjet printing, which are rapid but low cost. So the visual instant on-site identification of heavy metal ion will be realized in the future.

  • Effect Analysis of Optical Masking Algorithm for GEO Space Debris
           Detection

    • Abstract: A method with high detection rate, low false-alarm rate, and low computational cost is presented for removing stars and noise and detecting space debris with signal-to-noise ratio (SNR>3) in consecutive raw frames. The top-hat transformation is implemented firstly to remove background, then a masking technique is proposed to remove stars, and finally, a weighted algorithm is used to detect the pieces of space debris. The simulation samples are images taken by 600 mm ground-based telescope. And a series of simulation targets are added to the image in order to test the detection rate and false-alarm rate of different SNRs. The telescope in this paper is worked in “staring target mode.” The experimental results show that the proposed method can detect space debris effectively with low false-alarm by only three frames. When the SNR is higher than 3, the detection probability can reach 94%, and the false-alarm rate is below 2%. The running time of this algorithm is within 1 second. Additionally, algorithm performance tests in different regions are also carried out. A large set of image sequences are tested, which proves the stableness and effectiveness of the proposed method.

  • Two Signs of Superfluid Liquid in a Suspension of CdSe/ZnS Quantum Dots at
           Room Temperature

    • Abstract: The paper presents experimental results of the interaction of a focused optical beam with a suspension of CdSe/ZnS quantum dots in toluene. Two autographs characteristic only of the behavior of a superfluid quantum liquid were experimentally observed. The first was the fountain effect from the region of local heating of the suspension with an optical beam; the second was the complete “creeping out” of the QDs suspension in the form of a thin film along the walls of the cuvette in which the suspension was located. The results of the work suggest that superfluid quantum liquid may arise at room temperature as a result of the functioning of many-particle quantum superposition. Bose-Einstein condensation of entangled quantum states is proposed as a physical mechanism for producing a superfluid liquid, regardless of temperature.

  • Properties of Gaussian Beam Propagating in Ring Resonator Sensor

    • Abstract: In this paper, we deduce the paraxial analytical expression for the Gaussian beam propagating in the sandwich slab system which contained double negative material based on light transfer matrix and generalized Huygens-Fresnel integral equation; the evolution properties of emerging Gaussian beam contour graph intensity distribution on the receiver plane, the relation between beam spot size and negative refractive index coefficient, and beam side transmission view in slab system changed with three negative refractive index parameters are illustrated through numerical examples. What is more, we propose a ring resonator sensor to measure the concentration of NaCl solution on the basis of above theory, of which the operating principle is deliberatively analyzed, the influence of the concave mirror curvature radius on the emerging beam evolution is acquired, the functional relation between the normalized central intensity of the emerging beam, the beam spot size, and NaCl solution concentration is further developed by fit linear method, and the mathematical statistics results reach high precision and linearity. It is expected that the proposed ring resonator sensor and the corresponding conclusions can be useful for precise optical measurement, especially for food safety inspection and medical services of health care.

  • Optimization of LaPO4:Bi3+ Single-Phased White-Emitting Phosphor
           Luminescence Properties by Li+/Na+ Doping

    • Abstract: LaPO4:Bi3+ single-phased white-emitting phosphors doped with both Li+/Na+ ions were successfully prepared by a conventional solid-state reaction technique. Microstructures were analyzed by both X-ray diffraction and high-resolution scanning electron microscopy experiments. Under the excitation of 335 nm, the phosphor showed four emission bands with maxima at 460 nm, 487 nm (blue), 530 nm (yellow), and 637 nm (red); these can be successfully combined to form pure white light in a single host lattice only by simple activator Bi3+ ion. It was found that changing the concentration of dopant (Li+, Na+ ions) did not produce a change in shape or location of the emission peaks, but the value of the emission intensity increased; this was particularly evident in the red emission, which could optimize the white light emitting performance of the phosphors. When the Na+ doping concentration was 0.02, the CIE chromaticity coordinate of phosphor , was (0.3008, 0.3203), close to that of the standard white light.

  • Acoustooptic Diffraction of Three-Color Radiation on a Single Acoustic
           Wave

    • Abstract: Bragg diffraction which provides effective acoustooptic interaction of three-color radiation with a single acoustic wave at a high frequency of sound is proposed and tested in a single crystal of paratellurite at the wavelengths of λ= 0.488, 0.514, and 0.633 μm. Maximal diffraction efficiency of radiation with λ=0.633 μm at acoustic frequency of 150 MHz is 88% and that with λ= 0.488 μm and λ=0.514 μm is 60%. In diffraction efficiency range from 0 to 40% the dependence of all beams on acoustic power is the same.

  • Combined Reduced Phase Dual-Directional Illumination Digital Holography
           and Speckle Displacements for Shape Measurement

    • Abstract: We present a digital holographic method to increase height range measurement with a reduced phase ambiguity using a dual-directional illumination. Small changes in the angle of incident illumination introduce phase differences between the recorded complex fields. We decrease relative phase difference between the recorded complex fields 279 and 139 times by changing the angle of incident 0.5° and 1°, respectively. A two cent Euro coin edge groove is used to measure the shape. The groove depth is measured as ≈300  . Further, numerical refocusing and analysis of speckle displacements in two different planes are used to measure the depth without a use of phase unwrapping process.

  • Collective Optical, FTIR, and Photoluminescence Spectra of CeO2 and/or
           Sm2O3-Doped Na2O–ZnO–P2O5 Glasses

    • Abstract: Glasses with the Na2O–ZnO–P2O5 composition and doped with single CeO2, Sm2O3, or mixed dopants were melted and studied. Collective optical, photoluminescence, and FT-infrared spectral studies were carried out. CeO2-doped glasses show two extra UV absorption bands due to Ce4+ and Ce3+ ions while Sm2O3-doped samples reveal pronounced peaks collected into two segments from 367 to 472 nm and from 950 to 1623 nm which are characteristic of absorption from Sm3+ ions. The mixed dopants glasses show combined UV-visible–near-IR absorption peaks due to cerium (Ce4+, Ce3+) ions and samarium (Sm3+) ions. The photoluminescence spectra (PL) of the single CeO2-doped and Sm2O3-doped glasses and even the mixed dopant sample reveal luminescence spectra after excitation which are characteristic of the rare-earth ions. The intensities for both excited or emitted peaks are found to increase with the increase of the rare-earth percent. FTIR spectra of the glasses show pronounced vibrational peaks related to phosphate groups (Q2 and Q3 units) in accordance with the P2O5 percent (70 mol %).

  • Transmission Performance Analysis of WDM Radio over Fiber Technology for
           Next Generation Long-Haul Optical Networks

    • Abstract: This paper presents a detailed study of N-channels Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) Optical transmission system using Radio over Fiber (RoF) technology. The study was applied to optical long-haul networks to overcome the nonlinearity effects, chromatic dispersion, and signal loss. For this purpose, Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) has been implemented in 4-channels, 8-channels, and 16 channels WDM transmission system network at 10 Gb/s to compensate the dispersion and the nonlinear distortion. The use of erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFA) has been also investigated to improve the quality of the transmission system. In Digital RoF, the impact analysis of modulation types such as Differential Phase-Shift Keying (DPSK) and Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) is also introduced. Constellation diagrams, received optical power, types of modulation, fiber dispersion, channel spacing variation, and laser power were considered to validate the study with the existing studies. All results achieve good reliability performance and prove the efficiency of the presented model.

  • Holographic Interferometer for the Study of Phase Media, Which Has Four
           Output Channels of Different Sensitivity

    • Abstract: Computer simulation of the interferometer combining properties of low-sensitive Talbot interferometer and high-sensitive holographic interferometer is considered. The interferometer has four output channels having different sensitivity. Channel sensibility can be varied by means of spatial filtration. The base of the interferometer is the holographic Talbot effect. The efficiency of this interferometer was verified by computer simulation method. Some results of the computer simulation are presented in the article. These results were compared with results obtained in optical experiments under the same conditions. A wide range of sensitivity of the interferometer makes it possible to use the interferometer to study complex phase objects, primarily dynamic media.
