21. 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 ...

22. Linear and non-linear Faraday rotations of light polarization in a four-level active Raman gain medium
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 8/28/2013
Author: Lu Deng
Abstract: We investigate linear and nonlinear Faraday effects in a room-temperature, coherently driven four-level active Raman gain (ARG) medium. By using the multiple-scale method, we derive two nonlinear coupled envelope equations governing the dynamics of ...

23. Microresonator based optical frequency combs
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 4/29/2011
Authors: Scott A Diddams, T. J. Klippenberg
Abstract: Optical frequency combs based on mode-locked laser sources have provided unprecedented measurement capabilities for optical frequencies, enabling new applications in a wide range of topics that include atomic clocks, ultracold gases, molecular finge ...

24. Nanosecond-scale timing jitter in transition edge sensors at telecom and visible wavelengths
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 6/10/2013
Authors: Antia A. Lamas-Linares, Brice R. Calkins, Nathan A Tomlin, Thomas Gerrits, Adriana Eleni Lita, Joern Beyer, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: Transition edge sensors (TES) have the highest reported efficiencies (> 98%) for single photon detection in the visible and near infrared. Experiments in quantum information and foundations of physics that rely on this efficiency have started incor ...

25. On-chip, photon-number-resolving, telecom-band detectors for scalable photonic information processing
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 7/30/2012
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Nick Thomas-Peter, James Gates, Adriana Eleni Lita, Benjamin Metcalf, Brice R. Calkins, Nathan A Tomlin, Anna E Fox, Antia A. Lamas-Linares, Justin Spring, Nathan Langford, Richard P Mirin, Peter Smith, Ian Walmsley, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: We demonstrate the operation of an integrated photon number resolving transition edge sensor (TES), operating in the telecom band at 1550 nm, employing an evanescently coupled design that allows the detector to be placed at arbitrary locations within ...

26. Origin of Universal Optical Conductivity and Optical Stacking Sequence Identification in Multilayer Graphene
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 8/6/2009
Authors: Hongki Min, Allan H. MacDonald
Abstract: We predict that the optical conductivity of normal graphene multilayers is close to {sigma}^duni^=({pi}/2) e^u2^/h per layer over a broad range of frequencies. The origin of this behavior is an emergent chiral symmetry which is present in normal N-l ...

27. 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 ...

28. Performance of the NIST goniometer with a broad-band source and multichannel CCD based spectrometer
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 9/20/2012
Authors: Vyacheslav B Podobedov, Maria E Nadal, Carl C Miller

29. 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 ...

30. Precision spectroscopy with frequency combs at 3.4 {mu}m
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 8/2/2011
Authors: Esther Baumann, Fabrizio Raphael Giorgetta, William C Swann, Alexander M. Zolot, Ian R Coddington, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: We discuss precision spectroscopy with a comb-based spectrometer at 3.4 {mu}m. Our goal is to explore comb-based spectroscopy as an alternative method for fast, highly resolved, accurate measurements of gas line shapes. The spectrometer uses dual 1.5 ...
