41. Measurement of the optical properties of solid biomedical phantoms at the National Institute of Standards and Technology
Topic: Optics
Published: 3/6/2015
Authors: Paul Lemaillet, David W Allen, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: Solid phantoms that serve as a proxy for human tissue and provide a convenient test subject for optical medical imaging devices. In order to determine quantitative performance of a given system, the absolute optical properties of the subject mus ...

42. Molecular spectroscopy with frequency combs
Topic: Optics
Published: 3/1/2010
Author: Ian R Coddington
Abstract: Pulsed femtosecond frequency combs are rapidly developing as a powerful spectroscopic tool. As a spectroscopic source stabilized frequency combs potentially offer broad spectral coverage, near perfect frequency accuracy, low timing jitter and broadb ...

43. Mueller matrix bidirectional reflectance distribution function measurements and modeling of diffuse reflectance standards
Topic: Optics
Published: 4/20/2011
Authors: Thomas Avery Germer, Heather J Patrick
Abstract: We measure the Mueller matrix bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) of pressed and sintered powdered polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) reflectance standards for an incident angle of 75°. Rotationally averaged Mueller matrices from the m ...

44. Multifocus microscopy with precise color multi-phase diffractive optics applied in functional neuronal imaging
Topic: Optics
Published: 3/1/2016
Authors: Sara Abrahamsson, Bojan R Ilic, Jan Wisniewski, Brian Mehl, Liya Yu, Lei Chen, Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, Laura Oudjedi, Jean Bernard Fiche, Bassam Hajj, Xin Jin, Joan Pulupa, Christine Cho, Mustafa Mir, Mohamed El Beheiry, Xavier Darzacq, Marcelo Nollmann, Maxime Dahan, Carl Wu, Timothee Lionnett, James Alexander Liddle, Cornelia Bargmann
Abstract: Multifocus microscopy (MFM) allows high-resolution instantaneous three-dimensional (3D) imaging and has been applied to study biological specimens ranging from single molecules inside cell nuclei to entire embryos. In any live microscopy application, ...

45. Nanoscale Imaging of Photocurrent and Efficiency in CdTe Solar Cells
Topic: Optics
Published: 10/15/2014
Authors: Leite Marina, maxim abashin, Henri J Lezec, anthony gianfrancesco, Talin Alec, Nikolai B Zhitenev
Abstract: The local collection characteristics of grain interiors and grain boundaries in thin film CdTe polycrystalline solar cells are investigated using scanning photocurrent microscopy. The carriers are locally generated by light injected through a small ...

46. On-Fiber Plasmonic Interferometer for Multi-Parameter Sensing
Topic: Optics
Published: 4/20/2015
Authors: Zhijian Zhang, Yongyao Chen, Haijun H. Liu, Hyungdae Bae, Douglas A Olson, Miao Yu
Abstract: We demonstrate a novel miniature multi-parameter sensing device based on a plasmonic interferometer fabricated on a fiber facet in the optical communication wavelength range. This device enables the coupling between surface plasmon resonance and plas ...

47. Optical Tracking of Nanoscale Particles in Microscale Environments
Topic: Optics
Published: 3/10/2016
Authors: Pramod Pappachan Mathai, James Alexander Liddle, Samuel M Stavis

48. Phase sensitive parametric optical metrology: Exploring the limits of 3-dimensional optical metrology
Topic: Optics
Published: 4/4/2012
Authors: Richard M Silver, Jing Qin, Bryan M Barnes, Hui Zhou, Ronald G Dixson, Francois R. Goasmat
Abstract: There has been much recent work in developing advanced optical metrology applications that use imaging optics for critical dimension measurements, defect detection and for potential use with in-die metrology applications. Sensitivity to nanometer sca ...

49. 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 ...

50. Precision Interferometric Measurement of Mirror Birefringence in High-Finesse Optical Resonators
Topic: Optics
Published: 1/19/2016
Authors: Adam J Fleisher, David A Long, Qingnan Liu, Joseph Terence Hodges
Abstract: High-finesse optical resonators found in ultrasensitive laser spectrometers utilize supermirrors ideally consisting of isotropic high-reflectivity coatings with power reflectivity $R\geq99.99\%$. Strictly speaking, however, the optical coatings are o ...
