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. 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 ...

15. 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 ...

16. 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 ...

17. 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 ...

18. 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 ...

19. 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 ...

20. 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 ...
