Plasmonic Mach-Zehnder Interferometer for Optical Fiber
SUMMARY Nanoplasmonic structures are believed to be promising for high throughput and low cost sensing applications; however there are no products on the market that can offer this capability. As such, Lehigh University has attempted to offer a solution by investigating methods to integrate plasmonic Mach-Zehnder Interferometery in an optical fiber...

Compact and Portable Terahertz Source by Mixing Two Frequencies Generated Simultaneously by Single Solid-State Laser
SUMMARY Lehigh University has developed a compact, portable terahertz (THz) source that uses difference frequency generation (DFG) in a Gallium Selenide (GaSe) crystal by mixing dual frequencies from a single solid-state laser. Experimental results of this technology show the average THz output power can be as high as 1 μW at 1.64 THz (182 &...

EM Wave Slow Down Device (Technology #: 072808-01)
SUMMARY Lehigh University has developed and prototyped a device for slowing down and stopping electromagnetic (EM) waves and then, in a controlled manner, accelerating or restarting them again. It allows controlling the speed of light individually for various frequencies, effectively creating a “rainbow trapping device.” The approach ...
