31. 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 ...

32. 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 ...

33. 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 ...

34. 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.

35. Common Reference Channels for Metrological Comparability
Topic: Optics
Published: 12/20/2010
Authors: Ruediger Kessel, Tim Hewison
Abstract: In this article we discuss the effect of the choice of reference during calibration on later use of the calibrated results, and how a reference should be chosen to support later use of the data. Starting from the concept of metrological comparability ...

36. Hybrid gap modes induced by fiber taper waveguides: application in spectroscopy of single solid-state emitters deposited on thin films.
Topic: Optics
Published: 5/24/2010
Authors: Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, Kartik A Srinivasan
Abstract: We show, via simulations, that an optical fiber taper waveguide may be an efficient spectroscopy tool for single emitters, such as single molecules or colloidal quantum dots, deposited on the surface of a thin dielectric membrane. The fiber-membra ...

37. Effective medium approximations for modeling optical reflectance from gratings with rough edges
Topic: Optics
Published: 5/1/2010
Authors: Brent C. Bergner, Thomas Avery Germer, Thomas Suleski
Abstract: Line edge roughness (LER) has been identified as a potential source of uncertainty in optical scatterometry measurements. Characterizing the effect of LER on optical scatterometry signals is required to assess measurement uncertainty. However, rigor ...

38. Visible and near-infrared reflectance spectrometry of Fe for lunar surface composition study
Topic: Optics
Published: 3/31/2010
Authors: David Blewett, Nhan V Nguyen, Oleg A Kirillov, Samuel Lawrence
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=907162

39. Iron Optical Constants and Reflectance Spectroscopy of Planetary Surfacers
Topic: Optics
Published: 3/1/2010
Authors: David Blewett, Nhan V Nguyen, Oleg A Kirillov, Samuel Lawrence
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=907161

40. Molecular spectroscopy with frequency combs
Topic: Optics
Published: 3/1/2010
Author: Ian R Coddington
Abstract: Pulsed femtosecond frequency combs are rapidly developing as a powerful spectroscopic tool. As a spectroscopic source stabilized frequency combs potentially offer broad spectral coverage, near perfect frequency accuracy, low timing jitter and broadb ...
