31. Generating quiet continua: noise limitations to supercontinuum generation in photonic crystal fiber
Topic: Optics
Published: 9/1/2003
Authors: J M Dudley, S. Coen, Nathan Reynolds Newbury, Kristan L. Corwin, Scott A Diddams, Brian Washburn, R Windeler
Abstract: SC generation in photonic crystal fiber can be associated with intensity fluctuations arising from the nonlinear amplification of input pulse noise. Experiments and simulations are used to identify system parameters which minimize these fluctuations.

32. Generation of bright phase-matched circularly-polarized extreme ultraviolet high harmonics
Topic: Optics
Published: 12/8/2014
Authors: Justin M Shaw, Patrik Grychtol, Dmitriy Zusin, Ronny J. Knut, Tenio Popmintchev, Hans Toya Nembach, Avner Fleischer, Henry Kapteyn, Margaret Murnane, Ofer Kfir, Oren Cohen
Abstract: Circularly-polarized extreme UV and X-ray radiation provides valuable access to the structural, electronic and magnetic properties of materials. To date, this capability was available only at large-scale X-ray free-electron lasers or synchrotrons. He ...

33. High Accuracy Dual Lens Transmittance Measurements
Topic: Optics
Published: 8/1/2007
Authors: J Cheung, James Gardner, Alan L Migdall, Sergey V Polyakov, Michael Ware
Abstract: We show how to determine the transmittance of short focal length lenses (f ~ 19 mm, in this case) with an uncertainty of 1 part in 103 or better by measuring transmittances of lens pairs of a set of three or more lenses with the same nominal focal le ...

34. High-Speed Coherent Raman Fingerprint Imaging of Biological Tissues
Topic: Optics
Published: 7/20/2014
Authors: Charles H Camp, Young Jong Lee, John Michael Heddleston, Christopher Michael Hartshorn, Angela R Hight Walker, Jeremy N. Rich, Justin D. Lathia, Marcus T Cicerone
Abstract: We have developed a coherent Raman imaging platform using broadband coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (BCARS) that provides an unprecedented combination of speed, sensitivity, and spectral breadth. The system utilizes a unique configuration of la ...

35. High-contrast and fast electrochromic switching enabled by plasmonics
Topic: Optics
Published: 1/27/2016
Authors: Ting Xu, Erich C. Walter, Amit Kumar Agrawal, Christopher C. Bohn, Jeyavel Velmurugan, Wenqi Zhu, Henri J Lezec, Albert A. Talin
Abstract: With vibrant colours and simple, room-temperature processing methods, electrochromic polymers have attracted attention as active materials for flexible, low-power-consuming devices. However, slow switching speeds in devices realized to date, as well ...

36. Hybrid Detectors
Topic: Optics
Published: 11/29/2013
Authors: Sergey V Polyakov, Alan L Migdall, Franco N.C. Wong, Ivo P Degiovanni, Ian Walmsley, Hendrik B Coldenstrodt-Ronge
Abstract: We present an overview of e orts to improve photon-counting detection systems through the use of hybrid detection techniques such as spatial- and time-multiplexing of conventional detectors, and frequency up-conversion. We review the basic operatio ...

37. 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 ...

38. 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 ...

39. Infrared time domain spectroscopy with synchronized frequency combs
Topic: Optics
Published: 1/29/2010
Authors: Nathan Reynolds Newbury, Ian R Coddington, William C Swann
Abstract: We describe a frequency-comb based system for time-domain spectroscopy in the near infrared. Our configuration implements synchronous, repetitive sampling of the time domain signature for real-time coherent signal averaging and improved signal-to-noi ...

40. 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 ...
