Hsin Jung Lee Award Candidate Structure causality and beam direction effects on chirp quasi-phase-matching devices

Beam direction effect was shown to determine the up-conversion efficiency of chirp-PPLN when the infrared pump has spectral width less than that covered by the QPM structure. This phenomenon ceases when the spectral width of the IR beam matches to the QPM bandwidth. The latter can be understood from the structure causality analysis.

Huai-Wen Tsai Quantum Simulation and Electrochemical Experiment on Band Gaps of PLED Materials

In this thesis, I mainly use the cyclic voltammetry (CV) and UV-Visible spectrum to measure the optical properties of polymer light emitting diodes (PLEDs) to compare with the quantum simulation results which are based on time-dependent density functional theories (TD-DFT) for microscopic analysis. PLEDs play an important role in organic electroluminescent (OEL) especially the emitting layer in PLEDs. One of the basic materials to fabricate the emitting layer is the polythiophene (PT). Therefore, it is important to exploit the material properties by experiments and appropriate simulations. In the quantum simulation part, since Gaussian function is not capable of representing periodically molecular structure, the first step is to set up T1(monomer), T2(dimer), until T20 molecular models and then use the regression analysis to predict the band gap of the polythiophene. The absorption energies are then evaluated from the DFT and TD-DFT simulations. In the experimental part, using the cyclic voltammetry by varying the input potential is able to analyze the redox system of the emitting materials and to estimate their band gaps from the V-I plots. The oxidation potential (Eox) and the reduction potential (Ered) can be obtained, and are transformed to the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) and the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) accordingly. Finally, through experimental result verifications, this quantum simulation technique is concluded to be reliable and accurate for predicting the optical properties of modern PLEDs.

Shuo-Fan Chen Tight Binding Modelling of Silicon Nanowires

The electronic properties of silicon nanowires in [100] direction have been calculated using nearest neighbor sp3d5s* tight-binding model. The effect of wire thickness on band gap, effective mass and optical transition has been calculated. Due to the quantum confinement, the one-dimensional Brillouin zone of a Si nanowire changes into direct band gap. And the band gap broadens when the wire size shrinks.

Pi Ling Huang Effect of Graphene Saturable Absorber Layer Stacking on Laser Mode-Locking Stability and Dynamic Range

Passive mode-locking laser used graphene as saturable absorber to generate ultrafast pulse. Graphene samples were fabricated by CVD method. The number of layer of graphene saturable absorber has significant influence on laser mode-locking stability and dynamic range. Increased number of layer stacking caused instability and reduced dynamic range in mode-locking laser. However, mode-locking laser was able to generate shorter pulses by employing graphene with more number of layer.
