    • Fiber Coil Resonator for Optical Gain 

      Laxton, Steven R; Bravo, Tyler E (2014-09-19)
      We have developed a cheap design for a device using 3D printed parts and simple motors to fabricate a rare earth metal doped fiber coil amplifier. We also have measurements for bending losses in a small coil and absorption ...
    • Fiber Optic Coil - Fabrication and Characterization 

      Barber, Louis William (2015-09-29)
      The goal is to develop a device which periodically couples a pump signal to a signal propagating within a fiber such that the highest amount of optical gain is observed. This idea is based off the proposition that using ...
    • Fresnel Lens Characterization for Solar Concentration Efficiency 

      Hallam, Mark; Harris, William (2014-09-17)
      Due to the inexpensive and light weight nature of Fresnel lenses, they are key components in many solar energy concentration systems. Thus, the ability to effectively characterize Fresnel lenses over large areas is essential ...
    • Small-scale Concentrating Solar Thermal System Design 

      Mohamed El-Mahdy, Tasnim Ahmed (2014-09-21)
      In recent years, the growth of technology has caused the world energy consumption to skyrocket due to an increase in demand and an increase in available energy. Small renewable energy systems are often targeted for developing ...
