This paper is the third in a three-part series called “Blurring the Lines,” which seeks to push the boundaries that have emerged to constrain airpower applications for a limited set of conditions. This installment explores new and partially new applications of airpower in the grey zone, focusing on logistics and communications.

X-ray grating interferometry is a promising imaging technique sensitive to attenuation, refraction and scattering of the radiation. Applications of this technique in the energy range between 80 and 150 keV pose severe technical challenges, and are still mostly unexplored. Phase-contrast X-ray
In many applications, such a grating can achieve higher diffraction efficiencies than classical surface-relief gratings that diffract light by the presence of modulated surface structure. The ability to make complex VPH grating structures-impossible with surface-relief gratings-allows the creation of new concepts for astronomical spectrographs.

A diffraction grating is a periodically structure of subsequent most evenly spaced grating lines. Those grooves or opaque lines diffract the incident light depending on its periocity and microstructure. Depending on the light's incidence angle, rainbow-colored patterns are discernible on a projection surface behind a transmission or reflection
1550nm Pulse Fiber Laser for DTS system Fiber Bragg Grating. 1550nm pulse fiber laser can be tuned the output power, pulse width and pulse frequency using DFB laser and narrow pulse function generator with Auto Temperature Control technology.
In this reporting period, we have continued to make a significant progress towards the program goals. We have designed, fabricated and characterized several metal grating coupled bound-to-miniband (BTM) and step- bound-to-miniband (SBTM) transition QWIPs on the GaAs ad InP substrates for 8-12 microns focal plane arrays staring infrared sensor applications.

Snakes slithering across the desert sand at night can encounter obstacles such as plants or twigs that alter the direction of their travel. While studying that motion to learn how limbless animals control their bodies in such environments, Georgia Tech researchers discovered that snakes colliding with an obstacle behave much like light waves encountering an optical diffraction grating.
Plane ruled diffraction gratings are blazed for maximum efficiency in the first order Littrow configuration at specific wavelengths. Ruled reflection gratings are especially well suited for spectroscopic systems requiring high resolution. High efficiency at design wavelength and blaze angle
What are the uses of diffraction grating? An exciting application of spectroscopy is the analysis of gas spectra of cosmological bodies. By breaking up the electromagnetic radiation from distant stars into their spectra, we are able to know more about their chemical composition.
The optic fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor comprises of an elastic circular diaphragm and one or two FBG attached to the bottom surface of the elastic circular diaphragm. Two ends of the FBG are connected to an optic fiber for signal transmission. The FBG sensor readouts are independent of temperature fluctuation. The FBG sensor mechanism according to the present invention may be applied for
Diffraction Gratings: Theory and Applications 3 What is a diffraction grating? zIt is a device that reflects or refracts light by an amount varying according to the wavelength. zIt works in analogy to the prism. zBasically, a diffraction grating performs a Fourier Transform, separating a waveform in the time domain into a number of waveforms in the
