1. 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 ...

2. 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 ...

3. 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 Eleni 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 ...

4. 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 ...

5. 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 ...

6. 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 ...

7. Spectral response and characterization of a high-efficiency upconvertor for single-photon-level detection
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 10/18/2013
Authors: Paulina S Kuo, Oliver T Slattery, Yong-Su Kim, Jason S. Pelc, M. M. Fejer, Xiao Tang

8. Using radiation pressure for measurement of high-power laser emission
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 10/15/2013
Authors: Paul A Williams, Joshua Aram Hadler, Robert Lee, Frank Maring, John H Lehman
Abstract: We demonstrate a paradigm in absolute laser radiometry where a laser beam's power can be measured from its radiation pressure. Using an off-the-shelf high-accuracy mass scale and a 500 W Yb-doped fiber laser and a 92 kW CO2 laser, we show preliminary ...

9. Strong Casimir force reduction by metallic surface nanostructuring
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 9/27/2013
Authors: Francesco Intravaia, Stefan T. Koev, Il Woong Jung, Albert A. Talin, Paul S Davids, Ricardo Decca, Vladimir A Aksyuk, Diego A. R. Dalvit, Daniel Lopez
Abstract: The Casimir force is a quantum-mechanical interaction arising from vacuum fluctuations of the electromagnetic (EM) field and is technologically significant in micro- and nanomechanical systems. Despite rapid progress in nanophotonics, the goal of e ...

10. Spectral response of an upconversion detector and spectrometer
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 9/17/2013
Authors: Paulina S Kuo, Oliver T Slattery, Yong-Su Kim, Jason S. Pelc, M. M. Fejer, Xiao Tang
Abstract: We theoretically and experimentally investigate the spectral response of an upconversion detector and discuss implications for its use as an infrared spectrometer. Upconversion detection is based on high-conversion-efficiency sum-frequency generation ...
