1. A Glowing Future for Lab on a Chip Testing Standards
Topic: Optical Properties of Materials
Published: 6/28/2012
Author: Samuel M Stavis
Abstract: Testing standards are more fundamental from a metrological perspective and less controversial from an industrial perspective than product standards, representing a path of less resistance towards the standardization and commercialization of lab on a ...

2. Absolute Cryogenic Radiometer and Solid State Trap Detectors for IR Power Scales Down to 1 pW with 0.1% Uncertainty
Topic: Optical Properties of Materials
Published: 6/2/2009
Authors: Adriaan Carl Linus Carter, Solomon I Woods, Stephen Carr, Timothy Michael Jung, Raju Vsnu Datla
Abstract: Commercially available Absolute Cryogenic Radiometers (ACRs) have combined uncertainties that grow rapidly above 1% at power levels below 10 nW. There are solid state detectors, however, used in sensors and radiometers that cannot be calibrated at l ...

3. High-stability transfer of an optical frequency over long fiber-optic links
Topic: Optical Properties of Materials
Published: 8/1/2008
Authors: Paul A Williams, William C Swann, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: We present theoretical predictions and experimental measurements for the achievable phase noise, timing jitter, and frequency stability in the coherent transport of an optical frequency over a fiber-optic link. Both technical and fundamental limitati ...

4. Influence of Single-Wall Carbon Nanotube Length on the Optical and Conductivity Properties of Thin Buckypaper Films
Topic: Optical Properties of Materials
Published: 9/9/2008
Authors: Daneesh Olivia Simien, Jeffrey A Fagan, Jack F Douglas, Kalman D Migler, Jan Obrzut
Abstract: Thin layers of length-sorted single wall carbon nanotubes (SWNT) were formed in to a buckypaper sample through vacuum filtration. These length sorted samples exhibit sharp changes in their optical and conductivity (S) properties with increasing SWN ...

5. Investigation of SiO2/HfO2 stacks for flash memory applications
Topic: Optical Properties of Materials
Published: 4/28/2011
Authors: Nhan V Nguyen, Bashwar Chakrabarti
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=908443

6. Linewidth narrowing and Purcell enhancement in photonic crystal cavities on an Er-doped silicon nitride platform
Topic: Optical Properties of Materials
Published: 1/25/2010
Authors: Yiyang Gong, Maria Makarova, Selcuk Yerci, Rui Li, Martin J Stevens, Burm Baek, Sae Woo Nam, Robert Hadfield, Sander N. Dorenbos, Val Zwiller, Luca Dal Negro, Jelena Vuckovic
Abstract: Light emission at 1.54 mm from an Er-doped amorphous silicon nitride layer coupled to photonic crystal resonators at cryogenic and room temperatures and under varying optical pump powers has been studied. The results demonstrate that small mode volu ...

7. Optical and Conductivity Properties of Films from Liquid-Phase Exfoliation of Natural Graphite
Topic: Optical Properties of Materials
Published: 5/15/2009
Authors: Jan Obrzut, Kalman D Migler
Abstract: We experimentally determine the conductivity and optical transmittance of graphite layers, obtained from the liquid phase exfoliation of natural crystalline graphite. The measured transmittance values range from 0.9 to 0.97, comparable to the theoret ...

8. Optical and electrical properties of percolated graphene networks from liquid exfoliation of graphite
Topic: Optical Properties of Materials
Published: 10/22/2010
Authors: Jan Obrzut, Denis Pristinski, Mitra Yoonessi
Abstract: Thin films obtained from liquid phase exfoliation of graphite exhibit the conductivity and transparency properties of percolated networks having interconnectivity distance of about 1 um to 1.5 um. The mean radius of the platelets in solution determin ...

9. Phase-shifting algorithms for the interferometric measurement of form error, diameter variation and refractive index inhomogeneity of fused silica spheres
Topic: Optical Properties of Materials
Published: 9/9/2012
Authors: Chu-Shik Kang, Ulf Griesmann, Johannes A Soons
Abstract: High-precision spheres have many applications in precision engineering and metrology, such as the calibration of transmission spheres for interferometry, density standards for mass metrology, and spherical gyroscope rotors. For these applications it ...

10. Practical performance limits on optical frequency transfer over fiber optic links
Topic: Optical Properties of Materials
Published: 5/4/2008
Authors: Paul A Williams, William C Swann, Nathan Reynolds Newbury
Abstract: We present theory and experiment quantifying the limitations to stable transport of optical frequencies over optical fiber. These are fundamental fiber noise, propagation delay, bidirectional propagation and system noise in the measurement interferom ...
