The present invention is a method of fabricating an optical device using multiple sacrificial spacer layers. The first step in this process is to fabricate the underlying base structure and deposit an optical structure thereon. A facet is then created at the ends of the optical structure and alternating sacrificial and intermediate layers are fabricated on the device.

A network configuration provides arbitration-free all-to-all connection between the nodes of the network utilizing wavelength routing devices and utilizing a limited number of wavelengths for routing optical signals to the nodes of the network.
A method includes computing a cross-spectral surface of a signal. The method further includes determining initial frequency estimates to be points on the cross-spectral surface. The method further includes performing a polynomial interpolation to generate an initial frequency polynomial.
A joulemeter is capable of non-destructively measuring multiple characteristics of a laser beam. The joulemeter comprises a series of parallel probe beams, which are directed though a transparent media adjacent to an absorbing media that the tested beams pass through. Arrays of optical sensors or a chirp sensor are used to intercept and measure deflections the probe beams.
A method of demodulating an AIS signal by receiving the signal, sampling the signal, estimating the carrier frequency, estimating the complex conjugate of the carrier frequency contribution to each sample, multiplying each sample by the complex conjugate and calling the results a base-banded sampled signal (BBSS), correlating the BBSS with known preambles, identifying a maximum magnitude of the
