How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
We introduce an easily implementable optomechanical device for pressure and vibration sensing using a multilayer structure on a flexible substrate. We present the design, fabrication and evaluation steps for a proof-of-concept device as well as optical glass components. The design steps include optical, mechanical, and optomechanical correlation si...
In order to shed light on the seismic response of complex industrial plants, advanced finite element models should take into account both multicomponents and relevant coupling effects. These models are usually computationally expensive and rely on significant computational resources. Moreover, the relationships between seismic action, system respon...
Seismic risk evaluation of coupled systems of industrial plants often needs the implementation of complex finite element models to consider their multicomponent nature. These models typically rely on significant computational resources. Moreover, the relationships between seismic action, system response and relevant damage levels are often characte...
1-D multilayer dielectric films consisting of seven pairs of SiO2 and TiO2 alternating layers are deposited on a SiO2 substrate using the radio frequency sputtering technique. The thicknesses of the film layers are chosen to reflect the visible radiation around 650 nm. An elastic microcavity layer made of Polydimethylsiloxane was sandwiched between...
Titanium-based and cobalt-chrome alloys have been widely used in orthopaedic applications as these materials can significantly enhance the quality of human life as implant materials. The longevity of these materials is highly influenced by their mechanical properties. In some devices cobalt chrome components articulate with titanium alloy counter f...
