1. 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 ...

2. 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, ...

3. 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 ...

4. Alignment of Fiducial Marks in a Tomographic Tilt Series with an Unknown Rotation Axis
Topic: Optics
Published: 4/1/2007
Authors: Zachary H Levine, Peter Volkovitsky, Howard Hung
Abstract: Alignment for tomography using a transmission electron microscopy frequently uses colloidal gold particles as fiducial reference marks. Typically, there is an implicit assumption that the tilt axis of the tomographic series is orthogonal to the beam ...

5. 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 ...

6. An algorithm for finding clusters with a known distribution and its application to photon-number resolution using a superconducting transition-edge sensor
Topic: Optics
Published: 7/20/2012
Authors: Zachary H Levine, Thomas Gerrits, Alan L Migdall, Daniel Victor Samarov, Brice R. Calkins, Adriana E Lita, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: Improving photon-number resolution of single-photon sensitive detectors is important for many applications, as is extending the range of such detectors. Here we seek improved resolution for a particular Superconducting Transition-Edge Sensor (TES) t ...

7. Characterization of Ring Resonator Structures for Applications in Photonic Thermometry
Topic: Optics
Published: 7/1/2015
Authors: Nikolai Nikolayevich Klimov, Michaela Berger, Zeeshan Ahmed
Abstract: In recent years silicon photonics has emerged as a powerful enabling technology that is being harnessed to devleop novel, highly sensitive sensing solutions to address problems in environmental and human health related mointoring. Here we have system ...

8. Coalescing GSICS Correction Coefficients
Topic: Optics
Published: 8/14/2009
Author: Ruediger Kessel
Abstract: We would like to present a technique to adjust the uncertainty estimates of each point in a time series, so that the variance of the time series is consistent with the uncertainty estimates of its component points. This would allow the uncertainty of ...

9. Coherent cavity-enhanced dual-comb spectroscopy
Topic: Optics
Published: 5/4/2016
Authors: Adam J Fleisher, David A Long, Zachary D Reed, David F Plusquellic, Joseph Terence Hodges
Abstract: Multiheterodyne spectroscopy performed with two stabilized optical frequency combs (OFCs) has shown great potential as a fast, accurate, and high-resolution substitute for existing interferometry methods that require lengthy integration times and pre ...

10. 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 ...
