31. A circular dielectric grating for vertical extraction of single quantum dot emission
Topic: Optics
Published: 7/25/2011
Authors: Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, Matthew T. Rakher, Dieter Schuh, Antonio Badolato, Kartik A Srinivasan
Abstract: We demonstrate a suspended circular grating composed of partially etched annular trenches in a thin GaAs membrane, designed for e±cient and moderately broadband ( approx. 5 nm) extraction of emission from single InAs quantum dots. Simulations indic ...

32. Electromagnetic Energy Density in Dispersive and Dissipative Media
Topic: Optics
Published: 6/1/2011
Authors: Frederico D. Nunes, Thiago Vasconcelos, Marcel Bezerra, John Weiner
Abstract: The description of the energy density associated with an electromagnetic field propagating through matter must treat two different phenomena: dispersion, the variation of the refractive index with frequency, and dissipation, the loss of field energy ...

33. Effects of Roughness on Scatterometry Signatures
Topic: Optics
Published: 5/26/2011
Authors: Martin Foldyna, Thomas Avery Germer, Brent Bergner
Abstract: We used azimuthally-resolved spectroscopic Mueller matrix ellipsometry to study a periodic silicon line structure with and without artificially-generated line edge roughness (LER). Grating profiles were determined from multiple azimuthal configuratio ...

34. Dual-comb based measurement of frequency agile lasers.
Topic: Optics
Published: 5/1/2011
Authors: Ian R Coddington, Fabrizio Raphael Giorgetta, Esther Baumann, William C Swann, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: Properly stabilized, frequency combs form high accuracy references across much of the optical spectrum. Here we employ dual frequency combs to harness this accuracy for fast and high resolution measurements of swept CW sources.

35. Mueller matrix bidirectional reflectance distribution function measurements and modeling of diffuse reflectance standards
Topic: Optics
Published: 4/20/2011
Authors: Thomas Avery Germer, Heather J Patrick
Abstract: We measure the Mueller matrix bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) of pressed and sintered powdered polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) reflectance standards for an incident angle of 75°. Rotationally averaged Mueller matrices from the m ...

36. Mueller matrix ellipsometry of artificial non-periodic line edge roughness in presence of finite numerical aperture
Topic: Optics
Published: 4/20/2011
Authors: Thomas Avery Germer, Martin Foldyna, Brent Bergner
Abstract: We used azimuthally-resolved spectroscopic Mueller matrix ellipsometry to study a periodic silicon line structure with and without artificially-generated line edge roughness (LER). The unperturbed, reference grating profile was determined from multip ...

37. Characterizing arbitrary CW waveforms with 1500 THz/s chirp rates
Topic: Optics
Published: 4/5/2011
Authors: Ian R Coddington, Fabrizio Raphael Giorgetta, Esther Baumann, William C Swann, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: A Dual frequency comb interferometer was constructed to monitor cw laser chirp rates exceeding 1500 THz/s with MHz level resolution and accuracy over a 3 THz spectral sweep. Monitoring of the chirped laser is continuous. Additionally, absolute frequ ...

38. Introduction to special issue on single-photon technologies
Topic: Optics
Published: 3/10/2011
Authors: Alan L Migdall, Sergey V Polyakov, Jingyun Fan, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Jessica Cheung
Abstract: This special issue accompanies the 4th international conference on single-photon technologies held at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Boulder in November 2009. This community has met every two years at national metrology ins ...

39. Rapid, high resolution frequency comb measurements
Topic: Optics
Published: 2/13/2011
Authors: Ian R Coddington, Fabrizio Raphael Giorgetta, Esther Baumann, William C Swann, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: Frequency combs serve as an extremely high accuracy reference across broad portions of the optical spectrum. Dual frequency combs harness this accuracy and allow for fast and highly flexible measurements of passive and active sources.

40. Defining Common Reference Channels for Geostationary Infrared Imagers
Topic: Optics
Published: 12/31/2010
Authors: Tim Hewison, Ruediger Kessel
Abstract: This article follows up the theoretical considerations presented above with an example applied to the infrared channels of geostationary imagers. The uncertainties, u(deltaLr), introduced by the process of spectral conversion to Common Reference Chan ...
