41. Sensitivity Comparison of Mx and Frequency Modulated Bell-Bloom Cs Magnetometers in a Micro-Fabricated Cell
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 2/1/2010
Authors: Ricardo Jimenez Martinez, William C. Griffith, Ying-ju Wang, Svenja A Knappe, John E Kitching, Ken Smith, Mark Prouty
Abstract: We compare the sensitivity performance of two optically pumped atomic magnetometers based on the Mx and frequency-modulated Bell-Bloom configurations. The Cs magnetometers are implemented using a millimeter-scale microfabricated vapor cell in a confi ...

42. 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 ...

43. 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

44. 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 ...

45. Stimulated Generation of Superluminal Light Pulses via Four-wave Mixing
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 4/26/2012
Authors: Ryan Thomas Glasser, Ulrich Vogl, Paul D Lett
Abstract: We report on the four-wave mixing of superluminal pulses, in which both the injected and generated pulses involved in the process propagate with negative group velocities. Generated pulses with negative group velocities of up to vg = −c/880 ar ...

46. 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 ...

47. Sub-micron absolute distance measurements in sub-millisecond times with dual free-running femtosecond Er fiber-lasers
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 9/12/2011
Authors: Tze-An Lui, Nathan Reynolds Newbury, Ian R Coddington
Abstract: We demonstrate a simplified dual-comb lidar setup for precision absolute ranging that can achieve a ranging precision at a meter of 2 {mu}m in 140 {mu}s acquisition time. With averaging, the precision drops below 1 micron at 0.8 msec and below 200 nm ...

48. Supercontinuum Sources for Metrology
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 6/2/2009
Authors: John Taylor Woodward IV, Allan W. Smith, Colleen Alana Jenkins, Chungsan Lin, Steven W Brown, Keith R. Lykke
Abstract: Supercontinuum (SC) sources are novel laser-based sources that generate a broad, white-light continuum in single mode photonic crystal fibers. Currently, up to 6 W of optical power is available, spanning the spectral range from 460 nm to 2500 nm. A ...

49. Synthetic Electric and Magnetic Fields for Ultracold Neutral Atoms
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 1/1/2011
Authors: William D Phillips, Yu-Ju Lin, Robert L. Compton, Karina K. Jimenez Garcia, Abigail Reiko Perry, James V Porto, Ian B Spielman
Abstract: We use Raman coupling between magnetic sublevels of a 87Rb Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) to create an effective vector gauge field for the neutral atoms. They behave as if they were charged particles in a magnetic vector potential. With appropriate ...

50. The Cosmic Infrared Background Experiment (CIBER): the Narrow Band Spectrometer
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 8/19/2013
Authors: Steven W Brown, Keith R. Lykke, Allan W. Smith, P M. Korngut, T. Renbarger, T. Arai, J. Battle, A. Cooray, V. Hristov, B. Keating, M. G. Kims, A. Lanz, D. H. Lee, L. R. Levenson, P. Mason, T. Matsumoto, S. Matsuura, U. W. Niam, B. Shultz, I. Sullivan, K. Tsumura, T. Wada, M. Zemcov
Abstract: We have developed a near-infrared spectrometer designed to measure the absolute intensity of the Solar 854.2 nm Ca II Fraunhofer line, scattered by interplanetary dust, in the Zodiacal light spectrum. Based on the known equivalent line width in the S ...
