1. 193 nm scatterfield microscope illumination optics
Topic: Optics
Published: 12/17/2014
Authors: Martin Y Sohn, Richard M Silver
Abstract: A scatterfield microscope for deep sub-wavelength semiconductor metrology using 193 nm light has been designed. In addition to accommodating the fixed numerical aperture and size of its commercial catadioptric objective lens, the illumination optics ...

2. Flat lens criterion by small-angle phase
Topic: Optics
Published: 12/1/2014
Authors: Peter Ott, Mohammed H. Al Shakhs, Henri J Lezec, Kenneth John Chau
Abstract: It is sometimes possible to image using a flat lens consisting of planar, uniform media. There is conceptual division between theoretical flat lens proposals, which require exotic properties such as negative index or counter-intuitive behavior such ...

3. Nanoscale Imaging of Photocurrent and Efficiency in CdTe Solar Cells
Topic: Optics
Published: 10/15/2014
Authors: Leite Marina, maxim abashin, Henri J Lezec, anthony gianfrancesco, Talin Alec, Nikolai B Zhitenev
Abstract: The local collection characteristics of grain interiors and grain boundaries in thin film CdTe polycrystalline solar cells are investigated using scanning photocurrent microscopy. The carriers are locally generated by light injected through a small ...

4. Nurturing a Disruptive Technology for Thermodynamic Metrology
Topic: Optics
Published: 9/12/2014
Author: Zeeshan Ahmed
Abstract: This presenation lays out a case, based on economic and technologic considerations, that the present technologies for temperature and pressure measurement are ripe for disruption. We argue that a better use of research funds is to identify and nuture ...

5. TRANSITIONING FROM RESISTANCE DEVICES TO PHOTONIC DEVICES FOR TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENTS
Topic: Optics
Published: 9/12/2014
Authors: Zeeshan Ahmed, Gregory F Strouse
Abstract: For the past century, industrial temperature measurements have relied on resistance measurement of a thin metal wire or filament whose resistance varies with temperature. Though resistance thermometers can routinely measure industrial temperatures wi ...

6. Absolute pulse energy measurements of soft x-rays at the Linac Coherent Light Source
Topic: Optics
Published: 8/25/2014
Authors: Uwe Arp, Alexander Sorokin, Ulf Jastrow, Pavle Jurani?, Svea Kreis, Mathias Richter, Yiping Feng, Dennis Nordlund, Kai Tiedtke, Philip Heimann, Bob Nagler, Hae Ja Lee, Stephanie Mack, Marco Cammarata, Oleg Krupin, Marc Messerschmidt, Michael Holmes , Michael Rowen, William Schlotter, Stefan Moeller, Joshua Turner
Abstract: This paper reports novel measurements of x-ray optical radiation on an absolute scale from a recently developed source of radiation generated in the soft x-ray regime of a free electron laser. We give a brief description of the physics behind the ...

7. High-Speed Coherent Raman Fingerprint Imaging of Biological Tissues
Topic: Optics
Published: 7/20/2014
Authors: Charles H Camp, Young Jong Lee, John Heddleston, Christopher Michael Hartshorn, Angela R Hight Walker, Jeremy N. Rich, Justin D. Lathia, Marcus T Cicerone
Abstract: We have developed a coherent Raman imaging platform using broadband coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (BCARS) that provides an unprecedented combination of speed, sensitivity, and spectral breadth. The system utilizes a unique configuration of la ...

8. Visible-frequency asymmetric transmission devices incorporating a hyperbolic metamaterial
Topic: Optics
Published: 6/17/2014
Authors: Ting Xu, Henri J Lezec
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=915821

9. Gain and Loss in active waveguides based on lithographically defined quantum dots
Topic: Optics
Published: 6/1/2014
Authors: Kevin Lawrence Silverman, Luis Miaja Avila, Varun Boehm Verma, Richard P Mirin, James J. Coleman
Abstract: We report on the optical gain and loss of waveguides containing lithographically defined quantum dots. Lasing action has previously been demonstrated in a nominally identical structure. Measurements are made by monitoring the transmission of a re ...

10. Multiple-time-scale blinking in InAs quantum dot single photon sources
Topic: Optics
Published: 4/16/2014
Authors: Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, C S Hellberg, Serkan Ates, Antonio Badolato, Kartik A Srinivasan
Abstract: We use photon correlation measurements to study blinking in single, epitaxially-grown selfassembled InAs quantum dots situated in circular Bragg grating and microdisk cavities. The normalized second-order correlation function g(2)(t) is studied ac ...
