Optomechanical Reference

NIST Inventors
Gordon A. Shaw and Jacob Taylor
A mechanical sensor incorporating an optical cavity is used to provide a mass and/or force reference from a known or characterized circulating optical power in the optical cavity. The radiation pressure force in the optical cavity is used to actuate the mechanical sensor. The optical cavity in put

Optomechnical Gravimeter

NIST Inventors
Jacob Taylor, Jon R. Pratt and
Patent Description Currently many space projects require, at their core, sensors capable of measuring spurious forces acting on the spacecraft with extremely high sensitivity at ng/√Hz levels and below, particularly for high accuracy navigation and drag-free flight. NIST has developed a novel and
Photonic thermometer packages

Optical Temperature Sensor

NIST Inventors
Zeeshan Ahmed, Stephen Semancik, Jacob Taylor, Gregory F. Strouse and
The photonic temperature sensor relies on ultra-sensitive, frequency-based measurements of the effect of heat on the dimensions and predominant thermo-optic properties of the photonic resonator.
