61. Stimulated Generation of Superluminal Light Pulses via Four-wave Mixing
Topic: Optics
Published: 4/26/2012
Authors: Ryan Thomas Glasser, Ulrich Vogl, Paul D Lett
Abstract: We report on the four-wave mixing of superluminal pulses, in which both the injected and generated pulses involved in the process propagate with negative group velocities. Generated pulses with negative group velocities of up to vg = −c/880 ar ...

62. Sub-micron absolute distance measurements in sub-millisecond times with dual free-running femtosecond Er fiber-lasers
Topic: Optics
Published: 9/12/2011
Authors: Tze-An Lui, Nathan Reynolds Newbury, Ian R Coddington
Abstract: We demonstrate a simplified dual-comb lidar setup for precision absolute ranging that can achieve a ranging precision at a meter of 2 {mu}m in 140 {mu}s acquisition time. With averaging, the precision drops below 1 micron at 0.8 msec and below 200 nm ...

63. 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 ...

64. Tunable laser spectroscopy referenced with dual frequency combs
Topic: Optics
Published: 6/15/2010
Authors: Fabrizio Raphael Giorgetta, Ian R Coddington, Esther Baumann, William C Swann, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: Frequency combs provide broadband spectroscopic measurements with high frequency accuracy and precision. However, because the comb power is distributed over a broad spectrum, the sensitivity can be low unless some form of multiplexed detection or ca ...

65. 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 ...

66. 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 ...

67. Vibrationally-Resolved Sum-Frequency Generation With Broad Bandwidth Infrared Pulses
Topic: Optics
Published: 10/15/1998
Authors: Lee J Richter, T Petralli-Mallow, John C. Stephenson
Abstract: We present a novel procedure for vibrationally-resolved sum-frequency generation (SFG) in which a broad-bandwidth IR pulse is mixed with a narrow-bandwidth visible pulse. The resultant SFG spectrum is dispersed with a spectrograph and detected in pa ...

68. Visible and near-infrared reflectance spectrometry of Fe for lunar surface composition study
Topic: Optics
Published: 3/31/2010
Authors: David Blewett, Nhan V Nguyen, Oleg A Kirillov, Samuel Lawrence
