1. On-Chip Integrated Silicon Photonic Thermometers
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 9/1/2015
Authors: Nikolai Nikolayevich Klimov, Thomas P Purdy, Zeeshan Ahmed
Abstract: The fundamental limitations of resistance-based thermometry and the desire to reduce sensor ownership have produced considerable interest in the development of photonics-based temperature sensors as an alternative to resistance thermometers. Photonic ...

2. Integrated silicon optomechanical transducers and their application in atomic force microscopy
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 7/31/2015
Authors: Jie J. Zou, Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, Yuxiang Liu, Thomas Michels, Kartik A Srinivasan, Vladimir A Aksyuk

3. MEMS optomechanical accelerometry standards
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 7/8/2015
Authors: Felipe Guzman, Yiliang Bao, Jason John Gorman, John Russell Lawall, Jacob M Taylor, Thomas W LeBrun
Abstract: Current acceleration primary standards reach relative uncertainties of the order of 0.001 and consist of complex test facilities, typically operated at National Metrology Institutes. Our research focuses on the development of silicon mechanical os ...

4. Optomechanical Motion Sensors
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 7/8/2015
Authors: Felipe Guzman, Oliver Gerberding, John T. Melcher, Julian Stirling, Jon Robert Pratt, Gordon Allan Shaw, Jacob M Taylor
Abstract: Compact optical cavities can be combined with motion sensors to yield unprecedented resolution and SI-traceability in areas such as acceleration sensing and atomic force microscopy AFM, among others. We have incorporated Fabry-Perot fiber-optic m ...

5. Single-Photon Detector Calibration
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 7/7/2015
Author: Sergey V Polyakov
Abstract: In this chapter we introduce the set of detector properties, common to most contemporary detectors, that should be determined for a complete characterization. Then we introduce methods for detector characterization, and finally we present practical ...

6. 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 ...

7. An analysis of the nonlinear spectral mixing of didymium and soda-lime glass beads using hyperspectral imagery (HSI) microscopy
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 6/13/2014
Authors: Ronald Resmini, Robert S Rand, Christopher Deloye, David W Allen
Abstract: Nonlinear spectral mixing occurs when materials are intimately mixed. Intimate mixing is a common characteristic of granular materials such as soils. A linear spectral unmixing inversion applied to a nonlinear mixture will yield subpixel abundance es ...

8. Single molecule confocal fluorescence lifetime correlation spectroscopy for accurate nanoparticle size determination
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 5/15/2014
Authors: Bonghwan B. Chon, Kimberly A Briggman, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: We report on an experimental procedure in confocal single molecule fluorescence lifetime correlation spectroscopy (FLCS) to determine the range of excitation power and molecule concentration in solution under which the application of an unmodified ...

9. Semiconductor-based detectors
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 12/13/2013
Authors: Sergio Cova, Massimo Ghioni, Mark A. Itzler, Joshua C Bienfang, Alessandro Restelli
Abstract: There is nowadays a widespread and growing interest in low-level light detection and imaging. This interest is driven by the need for high sensitivity in various scientific and industrial applications such as fluorescence spectroscopy in life and ma ...

10. Practical Use and Calculation of CCT and Duv
Topic: Optical Metrology
Published: 10/18/2013
Author: Yoshihiro Ohno
Abstract: The Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) is often used to represent chromaticity of white light sources, but chromaticity is two-dimensional, and another dimension, the distance from the Planckian locus, is often missing. Duv is defined in ANSI C78.377 ...
