Twoflower used to be a vacationer, the 1st ever obvious at the Discworld. vacationer, Rincewind determined, intended fool. someplace at the frontier among proposal and fact exists the Discworld, a parallel time and position which would sound and scent a great deal like our personal, yet which appears to be like totally different. It performs by way of diverse ideas. definitely it refuses to succumb to the old fashioned suggestion that universes are governed by means of natural good judgment and the concord of numbers. yet simply because the Disc is assorted doesn't suggest that a few issues don't remain a similar. Its very life is set to be threatened through a wierd new blight: the arriving of the 1st vacationer, upon whose survival rests the peace and prosperity of the land. but when the individual charged with keeping that survival within the face of robbers, mercenaries and, good, loss of life is a spectacularly inept wizard, a bit good judgment may well change into a superb thought. ..

A, b The proﬁle from top surface. c Cross section of holes cut by FIB and ﬁlled with Pt for imaging the side walls 18 X. Gai et al. 4 All-Optical Processing in Semiconductor Optical Ampliﬁers Semiconductor optical ampliﬁers (SOAs) have a long history in all-optical processing with their popularity stemming from the range and strength of nonlinear effects available; from the early commercial availability of ﬁbre pigtailed devices; from the capacity for on chip integration of multiple functions/devices; and from the potential for low power operation with net conversion gain.
Cross phase modulation (XPM) between a strong pulsed pump and a weaker CW probe can also be exploited in SOAs for wavelength conversion by placing the SOA inside a Mach-Zehnder or other interferometer. Nonlinear polarisation rotation (NPR) in SOAs has also been increasingly harnessed for high speed nonlinear processing. This results from a combination of the 1 Materials and Structures for Nonlinear Photonics 19 different gain saturation behaviours of the TE and TM modes, and also from the intrinsic waveguide birefringence in the SOA (with both geometrical and stain components) which can also be modulated by changes in the carrier density.
