51. Nonthermal continuum toward Sagittarius B2(N-LMH)
Topic: Optics
Published: 4/11/2007
Authors: J M Hollis, P R Jewell, A Remijan, Francis John Lovas
Abstract: An analysis of continuum antenna temperatures observed in theGBTspectrometer bandpasses is presented for observations toward Sgr B2(N-LMH). Since 2004, we have identified four new prebiotic molecules toward this source by means of rotational transiti ...

52. Nurturing a Disruptive Technology for Thermodynamic Metrology
Topic: Optics
Published: 9/12/2014
Author: Zeeshan Ahmed
Abstract: This presenation lays out a case, based on economic and technologic considerations, that the present technologies for temperature and pressure measurement are ripe for disruption. We argue that a better use of research funds is to identify and nuture ...

53. Optimal Laser Scan Path for Localizing a Fluorescent Particle in Two or Three Dimensions
Topic: Optics
Published: 7/16/2012
Authors: Gregg M. Gallatin, Andrew J. Berglund
Abstract: Localizing a fluorescent particle by scanning a focused laser in its vicinity and analyzing the detected photon stream provides real-time information for a modern class of feedback control systems for particle tracking and trapping. We present a sim ...

54. 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 ...

55. 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 ...

56. 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 ...

57. 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 T 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 ...

58. Quasi-phasematched Second Harmonic Generation in GaAs Microdisks
Topic: Optics
Published: 11/15/2009
Authors: Paulina S Kuo, W Fang, Glenn Scott Solomon
Abstract: We discuss design and tuning of second-harmonic generation in GaAs microdisks. Quasi-phasematching can be achieved in the microdisk geometry without external domain inversions, but efficient nonlinear optical mixing requires that all waves be resonan ...

59. 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.

60. Revisiting the Balazs thought experiment in the case of a left-handed material: electromagnetic-pulse-induced displacement of a dispersive, dissipative negative-index slab
Topic: Optics
Published: 3/23/2013
Authors: Henri J Lezec, Kenneth John Chau
Abstract: We propose a set of postulates to describe the mechanical interaction between a plane-wave elec- tromagnetic pulse and a dispersive, dissipative slab having a refractive index of arbitrary sign. The postulates include the Abraham electromagnetic mom ...
