11. Microresonator based optical frequency combs
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 4/29/2011
Authors: Scott A Diddams, T. J. Klippenberg
Abstract: Optical frequency combs based on mode-locked laser sources have provided unprecedented measurement capabilities for optical frequencies, enabling new applications in a wide range of topics that include atomic clocks, ultracold gases, molecular finge ...

12. An example crossover experiment for testing new vicarious calibration techniques for satellite ocean color radiometry
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 10/1/2010
Authors: Kenneth Voss, Scott McLean, Stephanie J Flora, Michael Feinholz, Mark A. Yarbrough, Charles Trees, Mike Twardowski, Dennis Clark, Marlon Lewis, Bettye C Johnson
Abstract: Vicarious calibration of ocean color satellites involves accurate surface measurements of water-leaving radiance to update and improve the system calibration of ocean color satellite sensors. An experiment was performed to compare a free-fall techn ...

13. Mid-IR frequency comb upconversion spectroscopy
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 5/16/2010
Authors: Todd Johnson, Scott A Diddams
Abstract: We present a mid-infrared frequency comb generated via differency frequency mixing of a Yb femtosecond fiber laser. After passing through a methane gas sample, the MIR comb is upconverted and dispersed onto a CCD for detection.

14. Femtosecond frequency comb measurement of absolute frequencies and hyperfine coupling constants in cesium vapor
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 4/29/2010
Authors: Jason Stalnaker, Vela Mbele, Vladislav Gerginov, Tara Michele Fortier, Scott A Diddams, Leo Hollberg, C E Tanner
Abstract: We report measurements of absolute transition frequencies and hyperfine coupling constants for the 8S1/2 , 9S1/2 , 7D3/2 , and 7D5/2 states in 133 Cs vapor. The stepwise excitation through either the 6P1/2 or 6P3/2 intermediate state is perform ...

15. Strategic Plan 2010
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 4/21/2010
Author: Gerald T Fraser
Abstract: The Optical Technology Division s 2010 Strategic Plan defines the Mission, Vision, and Strategic Elements for the Division. The Strategic Elements consist of Optical Radiation Standards, Optical Measurement Methods, and Optical Measurement Services. ...

16. Infrared time domain spectroscopy with synchronized frequency combs
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 1/29/2010
Authors: Nathan Reynolds Newbury, Ian R Coddington, William C Swann
Abstract: We describe a frequency-comb based system for time-domain spectroscopy in the near infrared. Our configuration implements synchronous, repetitive sampling of the time domain signature for real-time coherent signal averaging and improved signal-to-noi ...

17. Extension of the NIST tristimulus colorimeter for solid-state light source measurements
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 5/29/2009
Authors: George P Eppeldauer, Carl C Miller, Thomas C Larason, Yoshihiro Ohno
Abstract: In order to obtain improved color measurement uncertainties for solid state light (SSL) sources, the second generation tristimulus colorimeter of NIST has been extended with a fifth channel to perform efficient matrix corrections for the spectral mis ...

18. A deep-UV optical frequency comb at 205 nm
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 5/25/2009
Authors: Scott A Diddams, E Peters, P Fendel, S Reinhardt, T W Hansch, T Udem
Abstract: By frequency quadrupling a picosecond pulse train from a Ti:sapphire laser at 820 nm we generate a frequency comb at 205 nm with nearly bandwidth-limited pulses. The nonlinear frequency conversion is accomplished by two successive frequency doubling ...

19. Reference Ballistic Chronograph
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 4/30/2009
Authors: Nicholas G Paulter Jr, Donald R Larson
Abstract: A ballistic chronograph with a measurement uncertainty of less than +/- 0.1 m/s has been designed, constructed and tested. Because of this low uncertainty, this chronograph can be used as a reference to calibrate and/or characterize the performance o ...

20. Development of Ultrafast Photochromic Organometallics and Photoinduced Linkage Isomerization of Arene Chromium Carbonyl Derivatives
Topic: Optical Technology
Published: 2/20/2009
Authors: Tung T. To, Edwin J Heilweil, Duke Charles, Ruddick Kristie, Webster Edwin Charles, Burkey Theodore
Abstract: We review recent studies of processes relevant to photoinduced linkage isomerization of organometallic systems with the goal of preparing organometallics with an efficient and ultrafast photochromic response. The organometallic system thus corr ...
