1. A general approach to low noise readout of terahertz imaging arrays
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 6/16/2011
Authors: Erich N Grossman, Jonathan D Chisum, Zoya Popovic
Abstract: This article describes the theory and design of an ultra-low noise electronic readout circuit for use with room temperature video-rate terahertz imaging arrays. First, the noise characteristics of various imaging detectors, including low resistan ...

2. Absorption, transmission, and scattering of expanded polystyrene at millimeter-wave and terahertz frequencies
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 3/17/2008
Authors: Charles Dietlein, Jon E. Bjarnason, Erich N Grossman, Zoya Popovic
Abstract: Conventional material measurements of transmission and reflection in the millimeter-wave and terahertz frequency range do not differentiate between scattering and absorption, grouping effects from both mechanisms together into 'loss'. Accurate knowle ...

3. Characterizing a Noninsertable Directional Device Using the NIST Uncertainty Framework
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 6/6/2014
Authors: Jeffrey A Jargon, Dylan F Williams, Paul D Hale, Michael D Janezic
Abstract: We characterize and provide uncertainties for a noninsertable, directional device over a frequency range of 90 to 100 GHz using the NIST Microwave Uncertainty Framework in conjunction with a commercial vector network analyzer. Our device consists of ...

4. Compact Nano-Mechanical Plasmonic Phase Modulators
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 4/1/2015
Authors: Brian Scott Dennis, Michael Haftel, David Czaplewski, Daniel Lopez, Girsh Blumberg, Vladimir A Aksyuk
Abstract: The miniaturization of photonic devices is fundamentally limited by the index of refraction of the constituent materials if light is confined in dielectric nanostructures. By coupling electromagnetic fields to metal‰s free electrons plasmonic devices ...

5. Dark pulse quantum dot diode laser
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 6/7/2010
Authors: Mingming M. Feng, Kevin Lawrence Silverman, Richard P Mirin, Steven T Cundiff
Abstract: We describe an operating regime for passively mode-locked quantum dot diode laser where the output consists of a train of dark pulses, i.e., intensity dips on a continuous background. We show that a dark pulse train is a solution to the master equati ...

6. Design and modeling of an ultra-compact 2x2 nanomechanical plasmonic switch
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 5/4/2016
Author: Vladimir A Aksyuk
Abstract: A 2x2 Mach-Zehnder optical switch design with a footprint of 0.5 um x 2.5 um using nanomechanical gap plasmon phase modulators [1] is presented. The extremely small footprint and modest optical loss are enabled by the strong phase modulation of gap p ...

7. EEEL Technical Accomplishments
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7568
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 3/30/2009
Author: Erik M Secula
Abstract: This document describes the technical work of the Electronics and Electrical Engineering Laboratory. In this report, you will find that EEEL researchers are developing the world's most advanced sensors, providing advanced gamma ray imagers for astro ...

8. Enhanced coupling between light and surface plasmons by nanostructured Fabry-Pérot resonator
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 9/26/2011
Authors: Brian S. Dennis, Vladimir A Aksyuk, Michael Haftel, Stefan T. Koev, Girsh Blumberg
Abstract: It is recognized that surface plasmons (SPs),which can be present on particulate, smooth, or corrugated metallic surfaces, have enormous potential in the fields of novel nano-optical and opto-electronic devices, as well as in spectroscopic, biologic ...

9. Frequency Characterization of an External-Cavity Quantum Cascade Laser at 4.5 {mu}m using a Frequency Comb
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 1/25/2012
Authors: Kevin O. (Kevin) Knabe, Paul A Williams, Fabrizio Raphael Giorgetta, Chris Armacost, Michael Radunsky, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: We measure the frequency noise spectrum of a free-running external-cavity quantum cascade laser at 4.5 {mu}m through sum frequency generation with a fiber frequency comb.

10. Full PMD vector measured directly from modulated data using linear optical sampling
Topic: Optoelectronics
Published: 7/15/2009
Authors: Paul A Williams, Tasshi Dennis
Abstract: We demonstrate a new technique to monitor the polarization-mode dispersion in a fiber communication channel by analyzing the modulated data at the fiber output measured with Polarization-Sensitive Linear Optical Sampling (PS-LOS).
