31. Spectral response of an upconversion detector and spectrometer
Topic: Optics
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 ...

32. Generalized Tabletop EUV Coherent Diffractive Imaging in a Transmission Geometry
Topic: Optics
Published: 9/11/2013
Authors: Justin M Shaw, Bosheng Zhang, Matthew Seaberg, Daniel Adams, Dennis Gardner, Elizabeth Shanblatt, Henry C. Kapteyn, Margaret M. Murnane
Abstract: We demonstrate the first generalized tabletop EUV coherent microscope that can image extended, non-isolated, non-periodic, objects. By implementing keyhole coherent diffraction imaging with curved mirrors and a tabletop high harmonic source, we demon ...

33. Implementation of generalized quantum measurements for unambiguous discrimination of multiple nonorthogonal coherent states
Topic: Optics
Published: 6/18/2013
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Generalized quantum measurements can perform perfect discrimination of nonorthogonal states by allowing for inconclusive results, task which is impossible performing only measurements with definite outcomes. We demonstrate the realization of genera ...

34. All-angle negative refraction and active flat lensing of ultraviolet light
Topic: Optics
Published: 5/22/2013
Authors: Ting Xu, Amit Kumar Agrawal, Maxim Abashin, Kenneth John Chau, Henri J Lezec
Abstract: The ability of a left-handed medium to sustain backwards electromagnetic waves leads to counter-intuitive phenomena such as negative refraction. We report the experimental implementation of a three-dimensional negative-index metamaterial operating at ...

35. Experimental test of an event-based corpuscular model modification as an alternative to quantum mechanics
Topic: Optics
Published: 2/13/2013
Authors: Giorgio Brida, Ivo Pietro Degiovanni, Marco Genovese, Alan L Migdall, Fabrizio Piacentini, Sergey V Polyakov, Paola Traina
Abstract: We present the first experimental test that distinguishes between an event-based corpus- cular model of the interaction of photons with matter and quantum mechanics. The test looks at the interference that results as a single photon passes through ...

36. Experimental demonstration of a receiver beating the standard quantum limit for multiple nonorthogonal coherent-state discrimination
Topic: Optics
Published: 1/6/2013
Authors: Francisco E. Becerra Chavez, Jingyun Fan, Gerald Baumgartner, Julius Goldhar, Jonathan Kosloski, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: The measurement of the state of a quantum system with inherent quantum uncertainty (noise) approaching the ultimate physical limits is of both technological and fundamental interest. Quantum noise prevents any mutually nonorthogonal quantum states ...

37. Slot-mode-coupled optomechanical crystals
Topic: Optics
Published: 10/22/2012
Authors: Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, Jasper Chan, Amir H. Safavi-Naeini, Oskar Painter, Kartik A Srinivasan
Abstract: We design a cavity optomechanical system in which a localized GHz frequency mechanical mode of a nanobeam resonator is evanescently coupled to a high quality factor (Q > 10^6) optical mode of a separate nanobeam optical cavity. Using separate nanobea ...

38. Upper roughness limitations on the TIS/RMS relationship
Topic: Optics
Published: 9/27/2012
Authors: J C Stover, Sven Schroeder, Thomas Avery Germer
Abstract: The relationship between total integrated scatter (TIS) and root mean square (rms) roughness was developed in the radar literature and enabled the first use of scatter measurements to monitor optical roughness. This relationship has been used and mi ...

39. Probing coherence in microcavity frequency combs via optical pulse shaping
Topic: Optics
Published: 8/29/2012
Authors: Fahmida Ferdous, Houxun H. Miao, Pei-Hsun Wang, Daniel E. Leaird, Kartik A Srinivasan, Lei Chen, Vladimir A Aksyuk, Andrew M Weiner
Abstract: Recent investigations of microcavity frequency combs based on cascaded four-wave mixing have revealed a link between the evolution of the optical spectrum and the observed temporal coherence. Here we study a silicon nitride microresonator for which ...

40. A compact and robust method for full Stokes spectropolarimetry
Topic: Optics
Published: 8/1/2012
Authors: William Sparks, Thomas Avery Germer, John MacKenty, Frans Snik
Abstract: We present an approach to spectropolarimetry which requires neither moving parts nor time dependent modulation, and which o ers the prospect of achieving high sensitivity. The concept, which is one of those generically known as channeled polarimetry, ...
