51. 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 ...

52. 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

53. 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 ...

54. 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 ...

55. 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 ...

56. 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 ...

57. Sub-micron force detection using optically-cooled levitated microspheres
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 9/3/2010
Authors: Andrew Geraci, Scott B Papp, John E Kitching
Abstract: We propose an experiment using optically trapped and cooled dielectric microspheres for the detection of short-range forces. The center-of-mass motion of a microsphere trapped in vacuum can experience extremely low dissipation and quality factors of ...

58. 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 ...

59. The evolving optical frequency comb
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 10/22/2010
Author: Scott A Diddams
Abstract: Much as natural historians search for the first roots of our human race, curiosity drives the laser scientist to pursue the roots of his or her own field. This is especially the case in this year where our community celebrates the 50th anniversary o ...

60. Ultrafast Demagnetization Measurements using Extreme Ultraviolet Light: Comparison of Electronic and Magnetic Contributions
Topic: Optical Physics
Published: 1/23/2012
Authors: Thomas J Silva, Justin M Shaw, Hans Toya Nembach, Margaret M. Murnane, Henry C. Kapteyn, Chan La-O-Vorakiat, Stefan Mathias, Emrah Turgut, Teale A. Carson, Martin Aeschlimann, Claus M. Schneider
Abstract: Ultrashort pulses of extreme ultraviolet light from high-harmonic generation are a new tool for probing coupled charge, spin, and phonon dynamics with element specificity, attosecond pump-probe synchronization, and time resolution of a few-femtosecon ...
