61. 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 ...

62. Speckle phase noise in coherent laser ranging: fundamental precision limitations
Topic: Optics
Published: 8/8/2014
Authors: Esther Baumann, Jean-Daniel Deschenes, Fabrizio Raphael Giorgetta, William C Swann, Ian R Coddington, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: Frequency-modulated continuous-wave laser detection and ranging (FMCW LADAR) measures the range to a surface through coherent detection of the backscattered light from a frequency-swept laser source. The ultimate limit to the range precision of ...

63. 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 ...

64. Spectral response and characterization of a high-efficiency upconvertor for single-photon-level detection
Topic: Optics
Published: 10/18/2013
Authors: Paulina S Kuo, Oliver T Slattery, Yong-Su Kim, Jason S. Pelc, M. M. Fejer, Xiao Tang
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=914453

65. Spectral response of an upconversion detector and spectrometer
Topic: Optics
Published: 9/17/2013
Authors: Paulina S Kuo, Oliver T Slattery, Yong-Su Kim, Jason S. Pelc, M. M. Fejer, Xiao Tang
Abstract: We theoretically and experimentally investigate the spectral response of an upconversion detector and discuss implications for its use as an infrared spectrometer. Upconversion detection is based on high-conversion-efficiency sum-frequency generation ...

66. TRANSITIONING FROM RESISTANCE DEVICES TO PHOTONIC DEVICES FOR TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENTS
Topic: Optics
Published: 9/12/2014
Authors: Zeeshan Ahmed, Gregory F Strouse
Abstract: For the past century, industrial temperature measurements have relied on resistance measurement of a thin metal wire or filament whose resistance varies with temperature. Though resistance thermometers can routinely measure industrial temperatures wi ...

67. Tests of a Two-Photon Technique for Measuring Polarization Mode Dispersion With Subfemtosecond Precision
Topic: Optics
Published: 1/1/1999
Authors: Eric Dauler, Gregg Jaeger, A Muller, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: An investigation is made of a recently introduced quantum interferometric method capable of measuring polarization mode dispersion (PMD) on sub-femtosecond scales, without the usual interferometric stability problems associated with such small ...

68. Ultra-Sensitive Chip-Based Photonic Temperature Sensor Using Ring Resonator Structures
Topic: Optics
Published: 2/3/2014
Authors: Haitan Xu, Mohammad Hafezi, Jingyun Fan, Jacob M Taylor, Gregory F Strouse, Zeeshan Ahmed
Abstract: Temperature is one of the most measured quantity in the world, second only to time. Recently there has been considerable interest in developing photonic temperature sensors to leverage advancements in frequency metrology. Here we show that Silico ...

69. Upper roughness limitations on the TIS/RMS relationship
Topic: Optics
Published: 9/27/2012
Authors: J C Stover, Sven Schroeder, Thomas Avery Germer
Abstract: The relationship between total integrated scatter (TIS) and root mean square (rms) roughness was developed in the radar literature and enabled the first use of scatter measurements to monitor optical roughness. This relationship has been used and mi ...
