21. An Analysis of the Probability Distribution of Spectral Angle and Euclidean Distance in Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Using Microspectroscopy
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 5/18/2013
Authors: Ronald G Resmini, Christopher Deloye, David W Allen
Abstract: Determining the probability distribution of hyperspectral imagery (HSI) data and of the results of algorithms applied to those data, is critical to understanding algorithm performance and for establishing performance metrics such as probability o ...

22. Random testing reveals excessive power in commercial laser pointers
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 5/1/2013
Authors: Joshua Aram Hadler, Edna L Tobares, Marla L Dowell
Abstract: In random testing of 122 commercial laser pointers, we observed that 89.7 % of green pointers and 44.4 % of red pointers were not in compliance with the Code of Federal Regulations, producing laser power in excess of the Accessible Emission Limit at ...

23. Effect of atomic coherence on "temporal cloaking" in atomic vapors
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 2/27/2013
Authors: Runbing Li, Lu Deng, Edward W Hagley, Joshua C Bienfang, M G Payne, Mo-Lin Ge
Abstract: We discuss a different scheme to achieve temporal cloaking in warm atomic vapors. Instead of creating a temporal-spatial window in a patched broadband short optical pulse using static differential dispersion of an optical fiber, we create a tempo ...

24. Experimental test of an event-based corpuscular model modification as an alternative to quantum mechanics
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 2/13/2013
Authors: Giorgio Brida, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Marco Genovese, Alan L Migdall, Fabrizio Piacentini, Sergey V Polyakov, Paola Traina
Abstract: We present the first experimental test that distinguishes between an Event-Based Corpuscular Model (EBCM)9) of the interaction of photons with matter and quantum mechanics. The test looks at the interference that results as a single photon passes t ...

25. Experimental demonstration of a receiver beating the standard quantum limit for multiple nonorthogonal coherent-state discrimination
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 1/6/2013
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Gerald Baumgartner, Julius Goldhar, Jonathan Kosloski, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: The measurement of the state of a quantum system with inherent quantum uncertainty (noise) approaching the ultimate physical limits is of both technological and fundamental interest. Quantum noise prevents any mutually nonorthogonal quantum states ...

26. Adaptive measurements in nonorthogonal state discrimination
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 12/18/2012
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Adaptive measurements represent important resources in quantum information science and quan- tum technologies. They take advantage of the knowledge of partial measurements of the system to optimize subsequent measurements and perform tasks that are ...

27. Preface to Proceedings of the International Conference Quantum Theory: Reconsideration of Foundations-6 (QTRF6) held in Vaxjo, Sweden, 11-14 June 2012
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 12/18/2012
Authors: Harald Atmanspacher, Andrei Khrennikov, Alan L Migdall, Sergey V Polyakov
Abstract: A wide spectrum of topics was presented in talks at this conference: quantum foundations (especially, Heisenberg's uncertainty relation and its generalizations) and information, mathematical formalism of quantum theory, philosophy, methodology of m ...

28. Remote sensing of chiral signatures on Mars
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 11/1/2012
Authors: William Sparks, James H. Hough, Thomas Avery Germer, Frank Robb, Ludmilla Kolokolova
Abstract: We describe circular polarization as a remote sensing diagnostic of chiral signatures which may be applied to Mars. The remarkable phenomenon of homochirality provides a unique biosignature which can be amenable to remote sensing through circular ...

29. 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 ...

30. 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 E 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 ...
