1. Nonlinearity measurements of solar cells with an LED-based combinatorial flux addition method
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 1/13/2016
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, Andrew M. Shore, John F Roller, Howard W Yoon, Mark Campanelli
Abstract: We present a light emitting diode (LED)-based system utilizing a combinatorial flux addition method to investigate the nonlinear relationship in solar cells between the output current of the cell and the incident irradiance level. The magnitude of th ...

2. Solar cell characterization
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 10/23/2015
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, Brian P Dougherty

3. Digital Phantoms Generated by Spectral and Spatial Light Modulators
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 10/21/2015
Authors: Bonghwan B. Chon, Fuyuki Tokumasu, Ji Y. Lee, David W Allen, Joseph Paul Rice, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: A hyperspectral image projector (HIP) based on liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS) spatial light modulators (SLMs) is explained and demonstrated to generate 3D spectral data cubes. The HIP- constructed data cubes are 3D images of the spatial distribu ...

4. Versatile, dynamically balanced low-noise optical-field manipulator using a coherently prepared atomic beam
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 10/19/2015
Authors: Lu Deng, Edward W Hagley, Yan Li, Chengjie Zhu, W R Garrett
Abstract: We propose a versatile dynamic optical-field manipulator using a coherently prepared atomic medium. We show that by locking the pump power change with the two-photon detuning a pi phase shifting can be realized with unit probe fidelity in a broa ...

5. Parametric force analysis for measurement of arbitrary optical forces on particles trapped in air or vacuum
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 9/8/2015
Authors: Haesung Park, Thomas W LeBrun
Abstract: We demonstrate a new method to measure general optical forces on particles trapped in gaseous or vacuum environments during the ring down of a trapped particle following electrostatic excitation. The method is not limited to the common constraint ...

6. Quantum Nonlinear Optics Near Optomechanical Instabilities
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 1/9/2015
Authors: Xunnong Xu, Michael Gullans, Jacob M Taylor
Abstract: Optomechanical systems provide a unique platform for observing quantum behavior of macro- scopic objects. However, efforts towards realizing nonlinear behavior at the single photon level have been inhibited by the small size of the radiation pressure ...

7. Photon-number uncertainty in a superconducting transition-edge sensor beyond resolved-photon-number determination
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 9/10/2014
Authors: Zachary H Levine, Boris L. Glebov, Alan L Migdall, Thomas Gerrits, Brice R. Calkins, Adriana E Lita, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: As part of an effort to extend fundamental single-photon measurements into the macroscopic regime, we explore how best to assign photon-number uncertainties to output waveforms of a superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) and how those assignmen ...

8. First Report on Quantum Dot Coated CMOS CID Arrays for the UV and VUV
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 12/13/2013
Authors: Uwe Arp, Robert Edward Vest, Zoran Ninkov, Ross Robinson, Suraj Bhaskaran
Abstract: A technique has been developed for coating commercial off the shelf (COTS) detector arrays with a thin, uniform layer of quantum dots. The quantum deposition is accomplished using an Optomec Aerosol Jet rapid prototyping system. When illuminated by U ...

9. Single-Photon Sources and Detectors Book: Chapter 1: Introduction
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 11/29/2013
Authors: Joshua C Bienfang, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall, Sergey V Polyakov
Abstract: In the beginning there was light. And it was good. Not long thereafter people began to look for a comprehensive understanding of its nature. While the publication record starts o a little spotty, in the fth century BC the Greek philosopher Empedocl ...

10. Imaging topological edge states in silicon photonics
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 10/20/2013
Authors: Mohammad Hafezi, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall, Jacob M Taylor
Abstract: Systems with topological oder exhibit exotic phenomena including fractional statistics. While most systems with topological order have been electronic, advances in our understanding of synthetic gauge fields have enabled realization of to ...
