31. 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 ...

32. Fast and accurate comb-based spectral analysis of a frequency agile CW laser
Topic: Optics
Published: 5/1/2010
Authors: Fabrizio Raphael Giorgetta, Ian R Coddington, Esther Baumann, William C Swann, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: The time-resolved frequency spectrum of a frequency agile CW laser is measured with a 300{mu}s update rate and 3 kHz resolution/accuracy over a 28 nm wavelength range with a coherent dual comb setup.

33. 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 ...

34. Fiber optic measurement considerations for the aerospace industry: Lessons learned from telecommunications
Topic: Optics
Published: 9/30/2008
Authors: Paul A Williams, Timothy J Drapela
Abstract: A brief history of measurement work for fiber optic telecommunications with application toward fiber optics in avionics

35. 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

36. 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 ...

37. 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 ...

38. Frequency comb spectroscopy with coherent optical sampling
Topic: Optics
Published: 4/20/2009
Authors: Ian R Coddington, Nathan Reynolds Newbury, William C Swann
Abstract: A stabilized frequency comb provides a broadband array of highly resolved comb lines. Using a multiheterodyne technique, we measure the amplitude and phase of every comb line, allowing for massively parallel, high-resolution spectroscopy.

39. Gain and Loss in active waveguides based on lithographically defined quantum dots
Topic: Optics
Published: 6/1/2014
Authors: Kevin Lawrence Silverman, Luis Miaja Avila, Varun Boehm Verma, Richard P Mirin, James J. Coleman
Abstract: We report on the optical gain and loss of waveguides containing lithographically defined quantum dots. Lasing action has previously been demonstrated in a nominally identical structure. Measurements are made by monitoring the transmission of a re ...

40. 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 ...
