Bolt test data with the load is 76.44 kN, just as p = 76.44, When three measurement values fit into equation (11) and coefficient k can be obtained, Thus the fitted axial force formulas obtained by Fiber Bragg Grating and resistance-strain gauges are:
The substrate was then moved underneath the mask in a direction parallel to the diffraction grating's lines, producing number limited but endless lines of grating into the sol-gel layer.
Through the statistical analysis, the report illustrates the global and Chinese total market of AWG (Arrayed Waveguide Grating) industry including capacity, production, production value, cost/profit, supply/demand and Chinese import/export.
"Our core business line is grating. In 2014 it constituted around 70 per cent of our revenue, the same figure as in the previous year, which means we're confident now of having a decent market share in all grating business in Saudi Arabia," said PGIF general manager Ahmad Douri.
The nanoantenna doesn't enable a grating to bring every wavelength to the same focus, but it does allow for a system to be designed that would bend multiple wavelengths by the exact same angle.
Further, the output of the waveguide may include a multiplexed holographic light output grating 310.
The period of the metallic grating is shorter than half a wavelength at the frequencies of interest in order to allow only for the transmission of the zeroth-order diffraction.
Over the years, improved cassava grating machines have been designed and made available on the market [9].
The optically tunable diffraction grating can be used for beam control and wide-range spectral scanning applications [7-9].
Although the sensitivity of this type of grating can be enhanced through mirroring and film depositions [7, 8], the present work does not include these techniques.
