11. 110 Labs in World‰s Largest Interlaboratory Comparison of LED Test Labs ‹ improving testing competency to support market transformation
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 6/1/2015
Authors: Yoshihiro Ohno, Koichi Nara, Peter Bennich, Michael Scholand, Nils Borg
Abstract: The International Energy Agency (IEA) 4E Solid State Lighting Annex initiated a programme starting in 2011 looking at a global laboratory accreditation scheme. The 2013 Interlaboratory Comparison (IC 2013) brought together and compared test results ...

12. One-dimensional frequency-based spectroscopy
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 5/22/2015
Authors: Joseph Terence Hodges, A. Cygan, Piotr Wcislo, S. Wojtewicz, Piotr Maslowski, R. Ciurylo, D Lisak
Abstract: Recent developments in optical metrology have tremendously improved the precision and accuracy of the horizontal (frequency) axis in measured spectra. However, the vertical (typically absorbance) axis is usually based on intensity measurements tha ...

13. Long Working-Distance Optical Trap for in Situ Analysis of Contact-Induced Phase Transformations
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 5/11/2015
Authors: Joshua A Gordon, Ryan D Davis, Sara Lance, Margaret A Tolbert
Abstract: The development and characterization of a long working-distance optical trap to analyze a diverse range of particle phase transformations and crystal growth processes is described. Utilizing an upward propagating Gaussian beam and a down-ward propag ...

14. Towards a FPGA-controlled deep phase modulation interferometer
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 5/11/2015
Authors: Marcelo Teran, Victor Martin, Lluis Gesa, Ignacio Mateos, Ferran Gibert, Nico Karnesis, Juan Ramos Castro, Thomas Schwarze, Oliver Gerberding, Gerhard Heinzel, Felipe Guzman, Miquel Nofrarias
Abstract: Deep phase modulation interferometry was proposed as a method to enhance homodyne interferometers to work over many fringes. In this scheme, a sinusoidal phase modulation is applied in one arm while the demodulation takes place as a post-processing s ...

15. Thermo-elastic induced phase noise in the LISA Pathfinder spacecraft
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 1/25/2015
Authors: Ferran Gibert, Miquel Nofrarias, Nico Karnesis, Lluis Gesa, Victor Martin, Ignacio Mateos, Alberto Lobo, Reinhold Flatscher, Domenico Gerardi, Johannes Burkhardt, Ruediger Gerndt, David I Robertson, Henry Ward, Paul McNamara, Felipe Guzman, Martin Hewitson, Ingo Diepholz, Jens Reiche, Gerhard Heinzel, Karsten Danzmann
Abstract: During the on-station thermal test campaign of the LISA Pathfinder, the diagnostics subsystem was tested in nearly space conditions for the first time after integration in the satellite. The results showed the compliance of the temperature measuremen ...

16. Measurement of the Gold-Gold Bond Rupture Force at 4 K in a Single-Atom Chain Using Photon-Momentum-Based Force Calibration
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 12/22/2014
Authors: Douglas T Smith, Jon Robert Pratt
Abstract: We present instrumentation and methodology for simultaneously measuring force and displacement at the atomic scale at 4 K. The technique, which uses a macroscopic cantilever as a force sensor and high-resolution, high-stability fiber-optic interfero ...

17. Experimental Bounds on Classical Random Field Theories
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 12/10/2014
Authors: Joffrey Kent Peters, Sergey V Polyakov, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Alternative theories to quantum mechanics motivate important fundamental tests of our understanding and description of the smallest physical systems. Here we place experimental limits on those classical field theories which result in power-depend ...

18. Progress toward Radiation-Pressure-Based Measurement of High-Power Laser Emission - Under Policy Review
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 10/6/2014
Authors: Paul A Williams, Joshua Aram Hadler, Daniel King, Robert Lee, Frank C. Maring, Gordon Allan Shaw, Nathan A Tomlin, John H Lehman, Marla L Dowell
Abstract: We present an overview of our efforts toward using optical radiation pressure as a means to measure optical power from high-power lasers. Early results with measurements ranging from tens of watts to 92 kW prove the concept, but validation uncertaint ...

19. Advanced phasemeter for deep phase modulation interferometry
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 7/21/2014
Authors: Thomas Schwarze, Oliver Gerberding, Felipe Guzman, Gerhard Heinzel, Karsten Danzmann
Abstract: We present the development of an advanced phasemeter for the deep phase modulation interferometry technique. This technique aims for precise length measurements with a high dynamic range using little optical hardware. The advanced phasemeter uses fas ...

20. Superconducting nanowire single photon detectors fabricated from an amorphous Mo0.75Ge0.25 thin-film
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 7/15/2014
Authors: Varun Boehm Verma, Adriana E Lita, Michael R Vissers, Francesco Marsili, David P Pappas, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: We present the characteristics of superconducting nanowire single photon detectors (SNSPDs) fabricated from amorphous Mo0.75Ge0.25 thin -films. Fabricated devices show a saturation of the internal detection efficiency at temperatures below 1 K, w ...
