2. Multifocus microscopy with precise color multi-phase diffractive optics applied in functional neuronal imaging
Topic: Optics
Published: 3/1/2016
Authors: Sara Abrahamsson, Bojan R Ilic, Jan Wisniewski, Brian Mehl, Liya Yu, Lei Chen, Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, Laura Oudjedi, Jean Bernard Fiche, Bassam Hajj, Xin Jin, Joan Pulupa, Christine Cho, Mustafa Mir, Mohamed El Beheiry, Xavier Darzacq, Marcelo Nollmann, Maxime Dahan, Carl Wu, Timothee Lionnett, James Alexander Liddle, Cornelia Bargmann
Abstract: Multifocus microscopy (MFM) allows high-resolution instantaneous three-dimensional (3D) imaging and has been applied to study biological specimens ranging from single molecules inside cell nuclei to entire embryos. In any live microscopy application, ...

3. High-contrast and fast electrochromic switching enabled by plasmonics
Topic: Optics
Published: 1/27/2016
Authors: Ting Xu, Erich C. Walter, Amit Kumar Agrawal, Christopher C. Bohn, Jeyavel Velmurugan, Wenqi Zhu, Henri J Lezec, Albert A. Talin
Abstract: With vibrant colours and simple, room-temperature processing methods, electrochromic polymers have attracted attention as active materials for flexible, low-power-consuming devices. However, slow switching speeds in devices realized to date, as well ...

4. Precision Interferometric Measurement of Mirror Birefringence in High-Finesse Optical Resonators
Topic: Optics
Published: 1/19/2016
Authors: Adam J Fleisher, David A Long, Qingnan Liu, Joseph Terence Hodges
Abstract: High-finesse optical resonators found in ultrasensitive laser spectrometers utilize supermirrors ideally consisting of isotropic high-reflectivity coatings with power reflectivity $R\geq99.99\%$. Strictly speaking, however, the optical coatings are o ...

5. Digital Phantoms Generated by Spectral and Spatial Light Modulators
Topic: Optics
Published: 10/21/2015
Authors: Bonghwan B. Chon, Fuyuki Tokumasu, Ji Y. Lee, David W Allen, Joseph Paul Rice, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: A hyperspectral image projector (HIP) based on liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS) spatial light modulators (SLMs) is explained and demonstrated to generate 3D spectral data cubes. The HIP- constructed data cubes are 3D images of the spatial distribu ...

6. Diffraction limited focusing and directing of gap plasmons by a metal-dielectric-metal lens
Topic: Optics
Published: 8/24/2015
Authors: Brian Scott Dennis, David Czaplewski, Michael Haftel, Daniel Lopez, Girsh Blumberg, Vladimir A Aksyuk
Abstract: Passive optical elements can play key roles in photonic applications such as plasmonic integrated circuits. Here we experimentally demonstrate passive gap-plasmon focusing and directing in two-dimensions. This is accomplished using a high numerical-a ...

7. Compact X-ray and Extreme-Ultraviolet Light Sources
Topic: Optics
Published: 7/10/2015
Authors: Lahsen Assoufid, Uwe Arp, Patrick Naulleau, Sandra Biedron , William Graves
Abstract: Bringing the brightness and power of vast synchrotron and free-electron laser sources to the scale of the lab and clinic marks an important next frontier,and could transform the landscape of X-ray science and technology.

8. Developing Microwave Photonic Temperature Sensors
Topic: Optics
Published: 7/9/2015
Authors: John S Quintavalle, Bernard J Filla, Gregory F Strouse, Zeeshan Ahmed
Abstract: In recent years there has been considerable interest in exploiting the temperature dependence of sapphire whispering gallery mode frequency to develop a mechanically stable, high accuracy temperature sensor. Disk-resonator-based devices have been dem ...
