41. Polarized Optical Scattering Signatures from Biological Materials
Topic: Optics
Published: 1/11/2010
Authors: W. E. Martin, E. Hesse, J. H. Hough, William Sparks, C. S. Cockell, Z. Ulanowski, Thomas Avery Germer, B. Kaye
Abstract: The polarization of laser light backscattered from biological samples has been measured over the wavelength range 350 to 850nm. Incident circular, linearly polarized, and unpolarized light produces significant spectrally prominent scattered polari ...

42. 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 NMN 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 ...

43. Progress Toward Corrugated Feed Horn Arrays in Silicon
Topic: Optics
Published: 12/16/2009
Authors: Joseph Wright Britton, Ki W. Yoon, James A Beall, Daniel Thomas Becker, Hsiao-Mei Cho, Gene C Hilton, Michael D. Niemack, Kent D Irwin
Abstract: We are developing monolithic arrays of corrugated feed horns fabricated in silicon for dual-polarization single mode operation at 90, 145 and 220 GHz. The arrays consist of hundreds of platelet feed horns assembled from gold coated stacks of micromac ...

44. Quantitative scheme for full-field polarization rotating fluorescence microscopy (PROM) using a liquid crystal variable retarder
Topic: Optics
Published: 5/14/2015
Authors: John F. Lesoine, Ji Y. Lee, Hyeong Gon Kang, Matthew Lawrence Clarke, Robert C. Chang, Ralph Nossal, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: We introduce real-time, full-field, polarization rotating fluorescence microscopy (PROM) to monitor the absorption dipole orientations of fluorescent molecules. A quarter-wave plate, in combination with a liquid crystal variable retarder (LCVR ...

45. Rapid, high resolution frequency comb measurements
Topic: Optics
Published: 2/13/2011
Authors: Ian R Coddington, Fabrizio Raphael Giorgetta, Esther Baumann, William C Swann, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: Frequency combs serve as an extremely high accuracy reference across broad portions of the optical spectrum. Dual frequency combs harness this accuracy and allow for fast and highly flexible measurements of passive and active sources.

46. Si3N4 optomechanical crystals in the resolved-sideband regime
Topic: Optics
Published: 1/27/2014
Authors: Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, Serkan Ates, Yuxiang Liu, Kartik A Srinivasan
Abstract: We demonstrate sideband-resolved Si3N4 optomechanical crystals supporting 105 quality factor optical modes at 980 nm, coupled to approximately 4 GHz frequency mechanical modes with quality factors of approximately 3000. Optomechanical electromagneti ...

47. Single-Photon Propagation Time through Dielectric Bandgaps: Large Variation Due to Small Structural Changes
Topic: Optics
Published: 2/1/2010
Authors: Natalia Borjemscaia Rutter, Sergey V Polyakov, Paul D Lett, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: The transit times of photons traveling through opaque barriers such as dielectric stacks exhibit the Hartman saturation effect. This saturation of the transit time is quite sensitive to the addition of a single dielectric layers, even onto an alread ...

48. Single-Photon Sources and Detectors Book: Chapter 1: Introduction
Topic: Optics
Published: 11/29/2013
Authors: Joshua C Bienfang, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall, Sergey V Polyakov
Abstract: In the beginning there was light. And it was good. Not long thereafter people began to look for a comprehensive understanding of its nature. While the publication record starts o a little spotty, in the fth century BC the Greek philosopher Empedocl ...

49. 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 ...

50. Spectral homogenization techniques for the hyperspectral image projector
Topic: Optics
Published: 5/15/2015
Authors: Joseph Paul Rice, Logan E. Hillberry
Abstract: In an effort to improve technology for performance testing and calibration of multispectral and hyperspectral imagers, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has been developing a Hyperspectral Image Projector (HIP) capable of proj ...
