51. A deep-UV optical frequency comb at 205 nm
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 5/25/2009
Authors: Scott A Diddams, E Peters, P Fendel, S Reinhardt, T W Hansch, T Udem
Abstract: By frequency quadrupling a picosecond pulse train from a Ti:sapphire laser at 820 nm we generate a frequency comb at 205 nm with nearly bandwidth-limited pulses. The nonlinear frequency conversion is accomplished by two successive frequency doubling ...

52. NIST Technical Note No. 1621: Optical radiation measurements based on detector standards
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1621
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 3/11/2009
Author: George P Eppeldauer
Abstract: Improved detector technology in the past two decades opened a new era in the field of optical radiation measurements. Lower calibration and measurement uncertainties can be achieved with modern detector/radiometer standards than traditionally used s ...

53. Scatterfield Optical Imaging for sub-10 nm Dimensional Metrology
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 1/1/2009
Author: Richard M Silver
Abstract: Recent developments in optical microscopy promise to advance optical metrology and imaging to unprecedented levels through theoretical and experimental development of a new measurement technique called "scatterfield optical imaging". ". Current met ...

54. Vector characterization of high-speed components using linear optical sampling with milliradian resolution
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 12/1/2008
Authors: Paul A Williams, Tasshi Dennis, Ian R Coddington, William C Swann, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: We demonstrate linear optical sampling measurements optimized for characterization of the signals produced by optical components. By sampling the optical electric field before and after the component, we isolate the full vector field (phase and ampli ...

55. Computational Parameters in Simulation of Microscope Images
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 11/28/2008
Authors: Egon Marx, James Edward Potzick
Abstract: The simulation of microscope images computed from scattered fields determined using integral equations depend on a number of parameters that are not related to the scatterer or to the microscope but are choices made for the computation method. The ...

56. Integral Equations for 3-D Scattering: Finite Strip on a Substrate
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 11/28/2008
Author: Egon Marx
Abstract: Singular integral equations that determine the exact fields scattered by a dielectric or conducting finite strip on a substrate are presented. The computation of the image of such a scatterer from these fields by Fourier optics methods is also shown ...

57. Yb Optical Lattice Clock
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 11/23/2008
Authors: Nathan D. Lemke, Andrew D Ludlow, Zeb Barber, N Poli, C.W. Hoyt, Long-Sheng Ma, Jason Stalnaker, Christopher W Oates, Leo Hollberg, James C Bergquist, A. Brusch, Tara Michele Fortier, Scott A Diddams, Thomas Patrick Heavner, Steven R Jefferts, Thomas Edward Parker
Abstract: We describe the development and latest results of an optical lattice clock based on neutral Yb atoms, including investigations based on both even and odd isotopes. We report a fractional frequency uncertainty below 10^u-15^ for ^u171^Yb.

58. Calibration of a Radiance Standard for the NPP/OMPS Instrument
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 10/9/2008
Authors: Bettye C Johnson, James J. Butler, Scott J. Janz, Robert D. Saunders, John W. Cooper, Matthew G. Kowalewski, R Barnes
Abstract: In June 2007, a spherical integrating source was calibrated in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration(NASA) Goddard Space Flight Center‰s (GSFC) Calibration Facility as part of the prelaunch characterization program for the NPOESS Pre ...

59. Off-line monitoring of OSNR/CD/PMD degradation effects using neural-network-based training sequences
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 9/1/2008
Authors: Jeffrey A Jargon, Xiaoxia Wu, Alan Willner
Abstract: A technique using artificial neural networks to simultaneously identify OSNR, CD, and PMD from eye-diagram parameters is demonstrated both via simulation and experimentally in 40 Gb/s OOK and DPSK systems. A correlation coefficient of 0.99 is obtaine ...

60. Long distance optical frequency transfer over fiber: predicting the frequency stability from the fiber noise
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 5/19/2008
Authors: Nathan Reynolds Newbury, Paul A Williams, William C Swann
Abstract: We have recently demonstrated the coherent transfer of an optical signal over a 251 km link of optical fiber using the standard Doppler-cancellation approach to remove the effects of the fiber-link noise. The fundamental limit to the frequency instab ...
