11. On-Fiber Plasmonic Interferometer for Multi-Parameter Sensing
Topic: Optics
Published: 4/20/2015
Authors: Zhijian Zhang, Yongyao Chen, Haijun (Haijun) Liu, Hyungdae Bae, Douglas A Olson, Miao Yu
Abstract: We demonstrate a novel miniature multi-parameter sensing device based on a plasmonic interferometer fabricated on a fiber facet in the optical communication wavelength range. This device enables the coupling between surface plasmon resonance and plas ...

12. Dimensional Metrology of Lab on a Chip Internal Structures: a Comparison of Optical Coherence Tomography with Coherence Fluorescence Microscopy
Topic: Optics
Published: 4/8/2015
Authors: Darwin R Reyes-Hernandez, Michael W Halter, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: The characterization of internal structures in a polymeric device, specifically of a final product, will require a different set of metrology techniques than those traditionally use in the characterization of microelectronic devices. OCT is relati ...

13. Measurement of the optical properties of solid biomedical phantoms at the National Institute of Standards and Technology
Topic: Optics
Published: 3/6/2015
Authors: Paul Lemaillet, David W Allen, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: Solid phantoms that serve as a proxy for human tissue and provide a convenient test subject for optical medical imaging devices. In order to determine quantitative performance of a given system, the absolute optical properties of the subject mus ...

14. SCATMECH: Polarized Light Scattering C++ Class Library and the Modeled Integrated Scattering Tool (MIST)
Topic: Optics
Published: 1/15/2015
Author: Thomas Avery Germer
Abstract: SCATMECH is an object-oriented C++ class library developed to distribute models for light scattering applications. Included in the library are models for diffuse surface scattering that predict the bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRD ...

15. Experimental Bounds on Classical Random Field Theories
Topic: Optics
Published: 12/10/2014
Authors: Joffrey Kent Peters, Sergey V Polyakov, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Alternative theories to quantum mechanics motivate important fundamental tests of our understanding and description of the smallest physical systems. Here we place experimental limits on those classical field theories which result in power-depend ...

16. Generation of bright phase-matched circularly-polarized extreme ultraviolet high harmonics
Topic: Optics
Published: 12/8/2014
Authors: Justin M Shaw, Patrik Grychtol, Dmitriy Zusin, Ronny J. Knut, Tenio Popmintchev, Hans Toya Nembach, Avner Fleischer, Henry Kapteyn, Margaret Murnane, Ofer Kfir, Oren Cohen
Abstract: Circularly-polarized extreme UV and X-ray radiation provides valuable access to the structural, electronic and magnetic properties of materials. To date, this capability was available only at large-scale X-ray free-electron lasers or synchrotrons. He ...

17. 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 ...

18. 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 ...

19. Comb-calibrated laser ranging for three-dimensional surface profiling with micrometer-level precision at a distance
Topic: Optics
Published: 10/6/2014
Authors: Esther Baumann, Fabrizio Raphael Giorgetta, Jean-Daniel Deschenes, William C Swann, Ian R Coddington, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: Non-contact surface mapping at a distance is interesting in diverse applications including industrial metrology, manufacturing, forensics, and artifact documentation and preservation. Frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) laser detection and ra ...

20. 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 ...
