Nanoscale Systems for Generating Various Forms of Light

Multiparticle scattering in plasmonic systems

For decades, scholars have believed that the quantum statistical properties of bosons are preserved in plasmonic systems, and therefore will not create different form of light. This rapidly growing field of research focuses on quantum properties of light and its interaction with matter at the nanoscale level. St

Figure 1: Power supply output voltage is trimmed so that power supply voltage = desired load voltage + total conductor impedance voltage drop

What is Trimming and How is it Used? Trimming the output voltage of a power supply simply means adjusting the voltage by a small amount. By convention, the term trimming is used for applications where the power supply has a specified nominal output voltage and the user is able to change the output voltage
