1. 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 ...

2. Compact X-ray and Extreme-Ultraviolet Light Sources
Topic: Optics
Published: 7/10/2015
Authors: Uwe Arp, Lahsen Assoufid, Patrick Naulleau, Sandra Biedron , William Graves
Abstract: Bringing the brightness and power of vast synchrotron and free-electron laser sources to the scale of the lab and clinic marks an important next frontier,and could transform the landscape of X-ray science and technology.

3. Developing Microwave Photonic Temperature Sensors
Topic: Optics
Published: 7/9/2015
Authors: John S Quintavalle, Bernard J Filla, Gregory F Strouse, Zeeshan Ahmed
Abstract: In recent years there has been considerable interest in exploiting the temperature dependence of sapphire whispering gallery mode frequency to develop a mechanically stable, high accuracy temperature sensor. Disk-resonator-based devices have been dem ...

8. Dimensional Metrology of Lab on a Chip Internal Structures: a Comparison of Optical Coherence Tomography with Coherence Fluorescence Microscopy
Topic: Optics
Published: 4/8/2015
Authors: Darwin R Reyes-Hernandez, Michael W Halter, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: The characterization of internal structures in a polymeric device, specifically of a final product, will require a different set of metrology techniques than those traditionally use in the characterization of microelectronic devices. OCT is relati ...
