1 is devoted to three-layer fiber waveguide sensors which consist of a silica glass substrate (S), a metal layer (M) and an aqueous media (A) denoted as SMA sensor or chalcogenide glass
substrate (Ch), and a metal layer (M) and aqueous media (A) denoted as ChMA sensor.
In a paper appearing in the journal Applied Physics Letters, Semouchkina and colleagues describe developing a nonmetallic cloak that uses identical glass resonators made of chalcogenide glass
, a type of dielectric material (one that does not conduct electricity).
PRAM uses the unique behavior of chalcogenide glass
, which can be switched between two states, crystalline and amorphous, with the application of heat.
MIRIPSHE aims to achieve this goal by integrating rare earth doped chalcogenide glass
into a silicon platform in order to exploit the superior optical and electronic properties of these two materials, respectively, for unparalleled bio-chemical sensing for health and environmental monitoring.
The researches tested this process using different materials such as, magnesium fluoride, chalcogenide glass
and even tape.
Its current product offering includes germanium lenses, zinc selenide blanks and chalcogenide glass
