11. Low-Coherence Interferometric Measurements of the Dispersion of Multiple Fiber Bragg Gratings
Published: 3/1/2001
Authors: Shellee Dawn Dyer, Kent B Rochford
Abstract: We show that the dispersion of multiple fiber Bragg gratings can be obtained from a single low-coherence interferometric measurement. The individual gratings can be identified either from the spatial separation fo the interferometric signatures or fr ...

12. Polarization and Polarimetry
Published: 1/1/2001
Author: Kent B Rochford
Abstract: Definitions, descriptions, measurements, and models are presented for the optical properties of polarization and polarimetry. Included are the properties of birefringence, diattenuation, and retardance and the calculational methods of Jones and Muell ...

13. Improved Fiber-Optic Magnetometer Based on Iron Garnet Crystals
Published: 10/1/2000
Authors: Kent B Rochford, Robert J. Espejo, Allen Rose, Shellee Dawn Dyer

14. Striations in YIG Fibers Grown by the Laser-Heated Pedestal Method
Published: 10/1/2000
Authors: H. Lim, R. C. Demattei, R. S. Feigelson, Kent B Rochford
Abstract: Yttrium iron garnet (YIG) single-crystal fibers of nominal composition Y^d3^Fe^d5^O^d12^ were grown by the laser-heated pedestal growth technique, a miniaturized float-zone process. YIG fibers in diameters ranging from 100 to 740 5m were grown at va ...

15. A Fast and Accurate Measurement of Both Transmission and Reflection Group Delay in Fiber Bragg Gratings
Published: 9/1/2000
Authors: Shellee Dawn Dyer, Kent B Rochford

16. High Frequency Response of Optical Magnetic Field Sensors Using Rare-Earth Iron Garnet Films
Published: 8/1/2000
Authors: N. Itoh, Kent B Rochford, H. Minemoto, S. Ishizuka
Abstract: We have measured the high frequency response of optical magnetic field sensors using bismuth-substituted rare-earch iron garnet films up to 1 GHz.

17. Fast and Accurate Low-Coherence Interferometric Measurements of Fiber Bragg Grating Dispersion and Reflectance
Published: 11/22/1999
Authors: Shellee Dawn Dyer, Kent B Rochford, Allen Rose
Abstract: We demonstrate fast and accurate measurements of fiber Bragg grating dispersion and spectral reflectance using low-coherence interferometry.

18. Variation in Optical Disc Retardance Measurements
Published: 10/1/1999
Authors: Kent B Rochford, S. T. Kreger, John W. West
Abstract: An intercomparison of optical disc birefringence measurements using commercial instrumentation found in manufacturing settings showed significant measurement variation. We discuss possible sources of variantion in these measurements, including chang ...

19. Low-Coherence Interferometric Measurements of Fibre Bragg Grating Dispersion
Published: 8/19/1999
Authors: Shellee Dawn Dyer, Kent B Rochford
Abstract: Low-coherence interferometric measurements of dispersion in fibre Bragg gratings are presented.

20. Variation in Optical Disc Birefringence Measurements
Published: 7/1/1999
