6.977 Semiconductor Optoelectronics: Theory and Design (MIT)
6.977 focuses on the physics of the interaction of photons with semiconductor materials. The band theory of solids is used to calculate the absorption and gain of semiconductor media. The rate equation formalism is used to develop the concepts of laser threshold, population inversion and modulation response. Matrix methods and coupled mode theory are applied to resonator structures such as distributed feedback lasers, tunable lasers and microring devices. The course is also intended to introduce

Changes in microstructure of a shape memory alloy (bi-crystal of austenitic CuAlNi )
Changes in microstructure of a shape memory alloy being heat treated and also mechanically deformed. A bi-crystal of austenitic CuAlNi is cooled, causing transformation to the martensitic (2H orthorhombic) phase. The process is reversed in the second half of the video, as the specimen is heated again. The rate at which transformation occurs is controlled by heat flow effects. (The shear process itself tends to take place very rapidly.) The martensitic phase is internally twinned. This is very cl

Introduction

We can study the individual properties of individual stars, such as photospheric temperature, luminosity, radius, composition and mass. If we wish to understand more about stars and obtain some insight into their evolution, we need to look at the overall distribution of stellar properties. We would like to know the answers to such questions as ‘Can stars have any combination of these properties?’ and ‘How many stars are there of each type?’ We can potentially learn a lot more about th

5.3.1 Allosteric regulation

In many proteins, the binding of a particular ligand at one site affects the conformation of a second remote binding site for another ligand on the same protein. This effect is called allosteric regulation and it is an important mechanism by which a protein's binding capacity and/or its activity are regulated. Thus the switch between two different protein conformations can be controlled by binding of a regulatory ligand.
