    Abstract: The squeezing, entanglement, and statistical properties of cavity modes produced by V-type three-level laser coupled to squeezed vacuum reservoir were studied employing the steady state solutions of the expectation values of the cavity mode operators. The study showed that a light in squeezing state can be produced by the system under consideration... Show More

    Abstract: This paper introduces a new space object detection algorithm that is designed to process image data taken from astronomical telescopes for the purposes of finding sources of optical radiation in space. Specifically, the algorithm is designed to find unresolvable space objects or objects that possess an angular size that is too small to appear as an... Show More

    Abstract: Silver nanoplates have obvious advantages compared with other silver structural nanoparticles due to their wide tunability of the local surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) and significant local field enhancement around the sharp corners. Nonlinear optical absorption (NLA) and nonlinear optical refraction (NLR) are widely employed to characterize the n... Show More
