A trilogy on optical backscatter

We have published a “TRILOGY” on optical backscatter in photonic waveguides. Theory, modelling, characterization, statistics of backscatter and it impact in circuits can be found in: PRL 104-3 Jan. 2010, APL 96-8 Mar. 2010, OL 35-11 June 2010. If you are interest on the backscatter of your waveguides, just contact…
