61. Generation and characterization of high-purity, pulsed squeezed light at telecom wavelengths from pp-KTP
Topic: Physics
Published: 11/15/2011
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Martin J Stevens, Burm Baek, Brice R. Calkins, Adriana Eleni Lita, Scott C Glancy, Emanuel H Knill, Sae Woo Nam, Richard P Mirin, Robert Hadfield, Ryan Bennink, Warren Grice, Sander N. Dorenbos, Tony Zijlstra, Teun Klapwijk, Val Zwiller
Abstract: We characterize a pp-KTP crystal designed to produce pure single mode squeezed vacuum at 1570 nm. Measurements show a raw (corrected) Hong-Ou-Mandel interference with 86 % (90 %) visibility and a circular joint spectral probability distribution with ...

62. Carbon nanotube arrays for absolute IR and THz radiometry
Topic: Physics
Published: 10/2/2011
Authors: John H Lehman, Kerry N. Betz, Erich N Grossman
Abstract: We have assembled and evaluated a novel electrically calibrated thermopile having an array of 1.5 mm long multiwalled carbon nanotubes as the radiation absorber. We find very low reflectance at the 390 {mu}m laser wavelength and excellent agreeme ...

63. SEM Induced Shrinking of Solid State Nanopores for Single Molecule Detection
Topic: Physics
Published: 9/22/2011
Authors: Anmiv Prahbu, Kevin J Freedman, Joseph William Robertson, Zhorro Nikolov, John J Kasianowicz, MinJun Kim
Abstract: We have investigated the shrinkage of solid state nanopores by a scanning electron microscope and find the process to be reproducible and dependant beam parameters such as the accelerating voltage and electron flux. The shrinking phenomenon does ...

64. State Discriminiation Signal Nulling Receivers
Topic: Physics
Published: 9/6/2011
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Gerald Baumgartner, Sergey V Polyakov, Julius Goldhar, Jonathan Kosloski, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Optimized state-discrimination receiver strategies for nonorthogonal states can improve the capacity of the communication channels operating with error rates below the ones corresponding to conventional receivers. Coherent signal-nulling receivers us ...

65. SURF III: A flexible Synchrotron Radiation Source for Radiometry and Research
Topic: Physics
Published: 9/1/2011
Authors: Uwe Arp, Charles W Clark, Lu Deng, Nadir S. Faradzhev, Alex P. Farrell, Mitchell L. Furst, Steven E Grantham, Edward W Hagley, Shannon Bradley Hill, Thomas B Lucatorto, Ping-Shine Shaw, Charles S Tarrio, Robert Edward Vest
Abstract: The calculability of synchrotron radiation (SR) makes electron storage rings wonderful light sources for radiometry. The broadband nature of SR allows coverage of the whole spectral region from the x-ray to the far-infrared. Compact low-energy storag ...

66. Perpendicular ferromagnetic resonance measurements of damping and Landé g-factor in sputtered (Co^d2^Mn)^d1-x^Ge^dx^ thin films
Topic: Physics
Published: 8/8/2011
Authors: Thomas J Silva, Hans Toya Nembach, Justin M Shaw, Michael Schneider, Matt Carey, Stefan Maat, Jeff Childress
Abstract: X-ray diffraction (XRD), magnetometry, and ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) measurements were performed on sputtered thin films of the nominal Heusler alloy (Co^d2^Mn)^d1-x^Ge^dx^ with varying Ge content and annealing temperature. XRD indicates some deg ...

67. A circular dielectric grating for vertical extraction of single quantum dot emission
Topic: Physics
Published: 7/25/2011
Authors: Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, Matthew T. Rakher, Dieter Schuh, Antonio Badolato, Kartik A Srinivasan
Abstract: We demonstrate a suspended circular grating composed of partially etched annular trenches in a thin GaAs membrane, designed for e±cient and moderately broadband ( approx. 5 nm) extraction of emission from single InAs quantum dots. Simulations indic ...

68. Increased responsivity pyroelectric radiometer with dome input and temperature control
Topic: Physics
Published: 7/18/2011
Authors: George P Eppeldauer, Jinan Zeng, Leonard M Hanssen
Abstract: Pyroelectric radiometers with noise-equivalent-power (NEP) close to 1 nW/Hz¿ have been developed to measure less than 1 microwatt radiant power levels at room temperature to 25 micrometer. The radiometers will be used as transfer standards for routin ...

69. Dimensional Analysis of Through Silicon Vias Using the TSOM Method
Topic: Physics
Published: 7/12/2011
Authors: Ravikiran Attota, Andrew Rudack
Abstract: There is a great need for accurate, truly-3D metrology solutions that can be used for analysis of high aspect ratio features such as through-silicon-vias (TSVs). Through-focus scanning optical microscopy (TSOM) is an optical metrology method that pr ...

70. State Resolved THz Spectroscopy and Dynamics of Crystalline Peptide/Water Systems
Topic: Physics
Published: 7/11/2011
Authors: Zeeshan Ahmed, Shin G. Chou, Karen M. Siegrist, David F Plusquellic
Abstract: State resolved THz studies of crystalline peptides and their hydrates have provided precise measures of the infrared active phonon modes that reflect motions on the longest possible length scales in these systems. The impact of co-crystallized water ...
