1. High-contrast and fast electrochromic switching enabled by plasmonics
Topic: Optics
Published: 1/27/2016
Authors: Ting Xu, Erich C. Walter, Amit Kumar Agrawal, Christopher C. Bohn, Jeyavel Velmurugan, Wenqi Zhu, Henri J Lezec, Albert A. Talin
Abstract: With vibrant colours and simple, room-temperature processing methods, electrochromic polymers have attracted attention as active materials for flexible, low-power-consuming devices. However, slow switching speeds in devices realized to date, as well ...

2. Precision Interferometric Measurement of Mirror Birefringence in High-Finesse Optical Resonators
Topic: Optics
Published: 1/19/2016
Authors: Adam J Fleisher, David A Long, Qingnan Liu, Joseph Terence Hodges
Abstract: High-finesse optical resonators found in ultrasensitive laser spectrometers utilize supermirrors ideally consisting of isotropic high-reflectivity coatings with power reflectivity $R\geq99.99\%$. Strictly speaking, however, the optical coatings are o ...

3. Digital Phantoms Generated by Spectral and Spatial Light Modulators
Topic: Optics
Published: 10/21/2015
Authors: Bonghwan B. Chon, Fuyuki Tokumasu, Ji Y. Lee, David W Allen, Joseph Paul Rice, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: A hyperspectral image projector (HIP) based on liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS) spatial light modulators (SLMs) is explained and demonstrated to generate 3D spectral data cubes. The HIP- constructed data cubes are 3D images of the spatial distribu ...

4. Diffraction limited focusing and directing of gap plasmons by a metal-dielectric-metal lens
Topic: Optics
Published: 8/24/2015
Authors: Brian Scott Dennis, David Czaplewski, Michael Haftel, Daniel Lopez, Girsh Blumberg, Vladimir A Aksyuk
Abstract: Passive optical elements can play key roles in photonic applications such as plasmonic integrated circuits. Here we experimentally demonstrate passive gap-plasmon focusing and directing in two-dimensions. This is accomplished using a high numerical-a ...
