21. Efficient quantum dot single photon extraction into an optical fiber using a nanophotonic directional coupler
Topic: Optics
Published: 9/19/2011
Authors: Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, Matthew T. Rakher, W. Wegscheider, Dieter Schuh, Antonio Badolato, Kartik A Srinivasan
Abstract: We demonstrate a spectrally broadband and efficient technique for collecting photoluminescence from a single InAs quantum dot directly into a standard single mode optical fiber. In this approach, an optical fiber taper waveguide is placed in contact ...

22. 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 ...

23. 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 ...

24. 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 ...

25. Feedback Control of Optically Trapped Particles
Topic: Optics
Published: 12/17/2011
Authors: Jason John Gorman, Arvind Kumar Balijepalli, Thomas W LeBrun
Abstract: Optical trapping is a method for manipulating micro- and nanoscale particles that is widely used in biophysics and colloid science, among other areas. This method uses optical forces to confine the position of a particle to a localized region, which ...

26. Fiber Bragg Gratings Embedded in 3D-Printed Scaffolds
Topic: Optics
Published: 6/1/2015
Authors: Peter Liacouras, Khazar Choudhry, Grant Grant, Gregory F Strouse, Zeeshan Ahmed
Abstract: In recent years there has been considerable interest in utilizing fiber optic based sensors as embedded sensor for fabricating smart materials. One of the primary motivations is to provide real-time information on the structural health of the materia ...

27. Filter Transmittance Measurements in the Infrared
Topic: Optics
Published: 1/1/1993
Authors: Alan L Migdall, A Frenkel, Daniel E. Kelleher
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=104043

28. First Report on Quantum Dot Coated CMOS CID Arrays for the UV and VUV
Topic: Optics
Published: 12/13/2013
Authors: Uwe Arp, Robert Edward Vest, Zoran Ninkov, Ross Robinson, Suraj Bhaskaran
Abstract: A technique has been developed for coating commercial off the shelf (COTS) detector arrays with a thin, uniform layer of quantum dots. The quantum deposition is accomplished using an Optomec Aerosol Jet rapid prototyping system. When illuminated by U ...

29. 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 ...

30. 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 ...
