A method and a device for assembly of a nanomaterial structure

It defines a method and device for transfer of nanomaterials down to 1 atom thick. The resolution is currently recorded at 10 µm, with speed of orientation controlled positioning up to 100 per second (pre-characterization and nano device requirements depending). The method is universally applicable and capable of refinement based upon components used. The material consumables are minimal with electricity and low energy laser usage, as the peak costs. The precision, speed, orientation control, repeatability, pre and post characterization attached to a device capable of printing standard interconnects for full device attachment, greatly expand the options of what can be manufactured, whilst saving on time.

In the present invention, there is disclosed a pair of active optical elements (D1 a D2), where both the elements (D1 a D2) exhibit a concentration gradient (4) of optically active centers above acceptable extent of optical homogeneity, are mirror-like and/or rotary symmetrical in shape and at the same time through distribution of the concentration gradient (4) of the optically active centers at least in a plane and/or volume intended for the reflection and/or passage of an optical beam (5). The preparation of the above-indicated pair of active optical elements is characterized in that, there is used a starting material, which comprises at least one area of the mirror-like and/or rotary symmetrical concentration gradient (4) of the optically active centers along at least one axis (2). At the same time, along that axis, the change in the concentration gradient (4) of the optically active centers takes place.

Within the volume of such modified material, there are selected two mirror-like and/or rotary symmetrical sections, which exhibit the optical homogeneity.

Optical element, especially laser slab and process for preparing thereof

The present invention relates to an optical element, especially a laser slab for generation of laser emission with suppression of the amplified spontaneous emission (ASE), wherein the optical element consists of a monocrystalline core and an optical ceramic coating without apparent optical interface on the connecting surfaces of the core and the coating. The ceramic coating is created directly on the monocrystalline core without the use of connection techniques. The single crystal is made of high-temperature oxides with garnet structure (YAG, LuAG, YSG, GGG) with a suitable dopant and the ceramic coating is of a corresponding type of a base material being doped with the same and/or different type of a doping ion. Process for preparing such a laser slab consists in a selection of a single crystal homogeneous section, from which a core body is produced. The core body is then put into a compacted layer of a powder precursor of the surface ceramic layer. Subsequently, isostatic pressing by pressure in the range of 50 to 200 MPa is carried out. The blank is then vacuum sintered at the rate of temperature onset in an amount of 400 degC/hour for a period of 6 hours at a temperature in the range of 1600 to 1750 degC. The sintering is followed up with cooling down at the same rate and mechanical severing of the sintered body to slabs, which are treated by grinding and polishing to a required surface grade.
