  2. High-Temperature Electric Wires

    SBC: Dexmat Inc.            Topic: AF161068

    Electric wires and cables constitute by far the largest weight portion of aircraft electrical power systems, as well as a large fraction of the entire aircraft weight. For example, a modern transport aircraft contains over 200 miles of wire, and an F-22 aircraft has about 20 miles of wiring. The increased emphasis and reliance on fly-by-wire technology and avionics for modern aircraft has resulted ...

  7. Fiber Pigtailed On-Chip Mid-infrared Difference Frequency Generation in Silicon

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: NA

    We propose a fiber-pigtailed strained silicon platform for tunable difference frequency generation (DFG) in mid-infrared (MIR) with tunable continuous wave near-infrared (NIR) sources. Stress exerted by silicon nitride induces second-order nonlinear susceptibility c(2) on underlying centro-symmetric silicon. NIR light is coupled into silicon and MIR light is coupled out of silicon using sub-wavele ...
