31. Rapid, high resolution frequency comb measurements
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 2/13/2011
Authors: Ian R Coddington, Fabrizio Raphael Giorgetta, Esther Baumann, William C Swann, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: Frequency combs serve as an extremely high accuracy reference across broad portions of the optical spectrum. Dual frequency combs harness this accuracy and allow for fast and highly flexible measurements of passive and active sources.

32. Electron Vortex Beams with High Quanta of Orbital Angular Momentum
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 1/14/2011
Authors: Benjamin James McMorran, Amit Kumar Agrawal, Ian M. Anderson, Andrew A Herzing, Henri J Lezec, Jabez J McClelland, John Unguris
Abstract: Analogous to vortices in light optical beams, electron optical beams with helical wavefronts carry orbital angular momentum and promise new capabilities for electron microscopy and other applications. We use nanofabricated diffraction holograms in an ...

33. Airless Solar System Bodies: Improvements to Radiative Transfer Modeling of Reflectance Spectra
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 11/2/2010
Author: Nhan V Nguyen

34. The evolving optical frequency comb
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 10/22/2010
Author: Scott A Diddams
Abstract: Much as natural historians search for the first roots of our human race, curiosity drives the laser scientist to pursue the roots of his or her own field. This is especially the case in this year where our community celebrates the 50th anniversary o ...

35. Sub-micron force detection using optically-cooled levitated microspheres
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 9/3/2010
Authors: Andrew Geraci, Scott B Papp, John E Kitching
Abstract: We propose an experiment using optically trapped and cooled dielectric microspheres for the detection of short-range forces. The center-of-mass motion of a microsphere trapped in vacuum can experience extremely low dissipation and quality factors of ...

36. Efficient fiber optic detection of trapped ion flourescence
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 7/9/2010
Authors: Aaron Vandevender, Yves Colombe, Jason Amini, Dietrich G Leibfried, David J Wineland
Abstract: Integration of fiber optics may play a critical role in the development of quantum information processors based on trapped ions, atoms, and quantum dots. Fibers could help enable a scalable and efficient means of collecting light from and deliverin ...

37. A 12.5 GHz-Spaced Optical Frequency Comb Spanning >400 nm for Infrared Astronomical Spectrograph Calibration
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 6/10/2010
Authors: Franklyn J Quinlan, Gabriel George Ycas, Steve Osterman, Scott A Diddams
Abstract: A 12.5 GHz-spaced optical frequency comb locked to a Global Positioning System disciplined oscillator for near IR spectrograph calibration is presented. The comb is generated via filtering a 250 MHz-spaced comb. Subsequent nonlinear broadening of the ...

38. Polymer Photochemistry at the EUV Wavelength
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 6/8/2010
Authors: Charles S Tarrio, Theodore Fedynyshyn, Russell Goodman, Alberto Cabral, Thomas B Lucatorto

39. Femtosecond frequency comb measurement of absolute frequencies and hyperfine coupling constants in cesium vapor
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 4/29/2010
Authors: Jason Stalnaker, Vela Mbele, Vladislav Gerginov, Tara Michele Fortier, Scott A Diddams, Leo Hollberg, C E Tanner
Abstract: We report measurements of absolute transition frequencies and hyperfine coupling constants for the 8S1/2 , 9S1/2 , 7D3/2 , and 7D5/2 states in 133 Cs vapor. The stepwise excitation through either the 6P1/2 or 6P3/2 intermediate state is perform ...

40. Sensitivity Comparison of Mx and Frequency Modulated Bell-Bloom Cs Magnetometers in a Micro-Fabricated Cell
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 2/1/2010
Authors: Ricardo Jimenez Martinez, William C. Griffith, Ying-ju Wang, Svenja A Knappe, John E Kitching, Ken Smith, Mark Prouty
Abstract: We compare the sensitivity performance of two optically pumped atomic magnetometers based on the Mx and frequency-modulated Bell-Bloom configurations. The Cs magnetometers are implemented using a millimeter-scale microfabricated vapor cell in a confi ...
