41. 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 ...

42. 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 ...

43. 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 ...

44. On-Fiber Plasmonic Interferometer for Multi-Parameter Sensing
Topic: Optics
Published: 4/20/2015
Authors: Zhijian Zhang, Yongyao Chen, Haijun (Haijun) 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 ...

45. 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 ...

46. 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 ...

47. 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 ...

48. 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 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 ...

49. 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 ...

50. 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 (Hyeonggon) 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 ...
