21. Quasianalytical modal approach for computing Casimir interactions in periodic nanostructures
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 10/3/2012
Authors: Francesco Intravaia, Paul S Davids, Ricardo Decca, Vladimir A Aksyuk, Daniel Lopez, Diego A. R. Dalvit
Abstract: We present an almost fully analytical technique for computing Casimir interactions between 1D periodic lamellar gratings based on a modal approach. Our method improves on previous work on Casimir modal approaches for nanostructures by using the exa ...

22. Extending single-photon optimized superconducting transition edge sensors beyond the single-photon counting regime
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 10/2/2012
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Brice R. Calkins, Nathan A Tomlin, Adriana Eleni Lita, Alan L Migdall, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: Typically, transition edge sensors resolve photon number of up to 10 or 20 photons, depending on the wavelength and TES design. We extend that dynamic range up to 1000 photons, while maintaining sub- shot noise detection process uncertainty of the n ...

24. On-chip, photon-number-resolving, telecom-band detectors for scalable photonic information processing
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 7/30/2012
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Nick Thomas-Peter, James Gates, Adriana Eleni Lita, Benjamin Metcalf, Brice R. Calkins, Nathan A Tomlin, Anna E Fox, Antia A. Lamas-Linares, Justin Spring, Nathan Langford, Richard P Mirin, Peter Smith, Ian Walmsley, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: We demonstrate the operation of an integrated photon number resolving transition edge sensor (TES), operating in the telecom band at 1550 nm, employing an evanescently coupled design that allows the detector to be placed at arbitrary locations within ...

25. A versatile light-emitting-diode-based spectral response measurement system for photovoltaic device characterization
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 6/29/2012
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Brian P Dougherty, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: An absolute differential spectral response measurement system for solar cells is presented. The system couples an array of light emitting diodes (LEDs) with an optical waveguide to provide large area illumination. Two unique yet complementary measur ...

26. Demonstration of Superluminal Images
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 6/19/2012
Authors: Ryan Thomas Glasser, Ulrich Vogl, Paul D Lett
Abstract: Optical pulse propagation with group velocities larger than the speed of light in vacuum, c, or negative, have been demonstrated theoretically and experimentally in a variety of systems [1‹5]. The anomalous dispersion required for generating ,fastŠ l ...

27. Calibration of an Astrophysical Spectrograph below 1 m/s using a Laser Frequency Comb
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 6/4/2012
Authors: David F Phillips, Alexander G Glenday, Chih-hao Li, Claire Elizabeth Cramer, Gabor Furesz, Guoquing Chang, Andrew Benedick, Li-Jin Chen, F X Kaertner, Sylvain G Korzennik, Dimitar Sasselov, Andrew Szentgyorgyi, Ronald L Walsworth
Abstract: We deployed two wavelength calibrators based on laser frequency combs (,astro-combsŠ) at an astronomical observatory. One astro-comb operated over a 100 nm band in the deep red ( 800 nm) and a second operated over a 20 nm band in the blue ( 400 nm) ...

28. Stimulated Generation of Superluminal Light Pulses via Four-wave Mixing
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 4/26/2012
Authors: Ryan Thomas Glasser, Ulrich Vogl, Paul D Lett
Abstract: We report on the four-wave mixing of superluminal pulses, in which both the injected and generated pulses involved in the process propagate with negative group velocities. Generated pulses with negative group velocities of up to vg = −c/880 ar ...

29. Sub-micron absolute distance measurements in sub-millisecond times with dual free-running femtosecond Er fiber-lasers
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 9/12/2011
Authors: Tze-An Lui, Nathan Reynolds Newbury, Ian R Coddington
Abstract: We demonstrate a simplified dual-comb lidar setup for precision absolute ranging that can achieve a ranging precision at a meter of 2 {mu}m in 140 {mu}s acquisition time. With averaging, the precision drops below 1 micron at 0.8 msec and below 200 nm ...

30. Precision spectroscopy with frequency combs at 3.4 {mu}m
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 8/2/2011
Authors: Esther Baumann, Fabrizio Raphael Giorgetta, William C Swann, Alexander M. Zolot, Ian R Coddington, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: We discuss precision spectroscopy with a comb-based spectrometer at 3.4 {mu}m. Our goal is to explore comb-based spectroscopy as an alternative method for fast, highly resolved, accurate measurements of gas line shapes. The spectrometer uses dual 1.5 ...
