Please note that this page is under construction. We are documenting the 240-node cluster maya that will be available after Summer 2014. Currently, the 84-node cluster tara still operates independently, until it becomes part of maya at the end of Summer 2014. Please see the 2013 Resources Pages under the Resources tab for tara information.
Anti-reflective surfaces for mid-IR optical fibers

The preliminary goal of this project is to create and validate a theoretical model for an anti-reflective moth-eye structure to be imprinted on the ends of chalcogenide optical fibers. Further we plan to calculate the transmission spectra of these moth-eye anti-reflective surface designs with different geometries and compare them to experimental results of such surfaces.
