The resulting waveguide is a breakthrough in creating optical networks that allow optical signals to be processed directly — without changing them back to electrons.
How is it that transmission of electromagnetic energy through a waveguide is a solution to
In 2007, Ortwin Hess of the University of Surrey in Guildford, UK, and colleagues proposed a technique to trap light inside a tapering waveguide, which is a structure that guides light waves down its length.
A special feature is a small rubber piece in the center of the bristles called a "waveguide," which the company says conducts the ultrasound energy into tiny air bubbles formed in the liquid toothpaste mixture while brushing.
A chapter on waveguide analysis then provides the background for a description of particular optical devices, such as waveguide lasers, mirrors, and novel nonlinear materials.
Psyko takes it a step further, actually shooting the sound along a "waveguide," which sounds more like a helper mermaid than audio tech.
In a miniature version of a whispering gallery, laser light is coupled into a circular "waveguide," such as a glass ring.
Maybe you an start out with its affordable, entry-level C-series speakers, ranging form a C1 Bookshelf ($250 per pair) to a C7 Floorstander ($400), each with KEF's "waveguide" that helps disperse sound from the tweeters.
The Schumann resonances (SR): The limited dimensions of the Earth cause this waveguide to act as a resonant cavity for electromagnetic waves in the ELF band.
That cuts costs if the waveguide can be manufactured using a standard chipmaking material such as silicon, which it is with the hybrid technology used for this research.
