Optical-cavity-based primary sound standard

Akobuije Chijioke, Richard A. Allen, Steven E. Fick, David Long, Benjamin Reschovsky, Jared Strait, Randall P. Wagner
We propose an optical sound standard in which the sound pressure is directly measured by using an optical cavity to observe the induced change in the refractive

Intrinsically accurate sensing with an optomechanical accelerometer

Benjamin Reschovsky, David Long, Feng Zhou, Yiliang Bao, Richard A. Allen, Jason J. Gorman, Thomas W. LeBrun
We demonstrate a microfabricated optomechanical accelerometer that is capable of percent-level accuracy without external calibration. To achieve this capability

Direct Digital Chirp Synthesizer And Generating A Chirped Optical Frequency Comb

NIST Inventors
David Long and Benjamin Reschovsky
Disclosed is a direct digital chirp synthesizer for generating a chirped optical frequency comb that includes: a direct digital synthesizer that receives a repetition frequency signal from a delay generator, receives a clock frequency from a frequency converter, produces a radiofrequency chirp

Calibration Apparatus And Calibrating A Laser Doppler Vibrometer

NIST Inventors
Michael Gaitan , Benjamin Reschovsky and Akobuije Chijioke
We have developed and demonstrated a new method to calibrate laser Doppler vibrometers (LDVs). The method uses two acousto-optic modulators to frequency shift the light from the LDV under test by a known quantity to create a synthetic velocity shift that is traceable to a time and frequency
