1. 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 ...

2. 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.

3. 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 ...

4. Characterization of Ring Resonator Structures for Applications in Photonic Thermometry
Topic: Optics
Published: 7/1/2015
Authors: Nikolai Nikolayevich Klimov, Michaela Berger, Zeeshan Ahmed
Abstract: In recent years silicon photonics has emerged as a powerful enabling technology that is being harnessed to devleop novel, highly sensitive sensing solutions to address problems in environmental and human health related mointoring. Here we have system ...

5. Fiber Bragg Gratings Embedded in 3D-Printed Scaffolds
Topic: Optics
Published: 6/1/2015
Authors: Peter Liacouras, Khazar Choudhry, Grant Grant, Gregory F Strouse, Zeeshan Ahmed
Abstract: In recent years there has been considerable interest in utilizing fiber optic based sensors as embedded sensor for fabricating smart materials. One of the primary motivations is to provide real-time information on the structural health of the materia ...

6. Spectral homogenization techniques for the hyperspectral image projector
Topic: Optics
Published: 5/15/2015
Authors: Joseph Paul Rice, Logan E. Hillberry
Abstract: In an effort to improve technology for performance testing and calibration of multispectral and hyperspectral imagers, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has been developing a Hyperspectral Image Projector (HIP) capable of proj ...

7. Quantitative scheme for full-field polarization rotating fluorescence microscopy (PROM) using a liquid crystal variable retarder
Topic: Optics
Published: 5/14/2015
Authors: John F. Lesoine, Ji Y. Lee, Hyeong Gon (Hyeonggon) Kang, Matthew Lawrence Clarke, Robert C. Chang, Ralph Nossal, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: We introduce real-time, full-field, polarization rotating fluorescence microscopy (PROM) to monitor the absorption dipole orientations of fluorescent molecules. A quarter-wave plate, in combination with a liquid crystal variable retarder (LCVR ...

8. On-Fiber Plasmonic Interferometer for Multi-Parameter Sensing
Topic: Optics
Published: 4/20/2015
Authors: Zhijian Zhang, Yongyao Chen, Haijun (Haijun) Liu, Hyungdae Bae, Douglas A Olson, Miao Yu
Abstract: We demonstrate a novel miniature multi-parameter sensing device based on a plasmonic interferometer fabricated on a fiber facet in the optical communication wavelength range. This device enables the coupling between surface plasmon resonance and plas ...

9. Dimensional Metrology of Lab on a Chip Internal Structures: a Comparison of Optical Coherence Tomography with Coherence Fluorescence Microscopy
Topic: Optics
Published: 4/8/2015
Authors: Darwin R Reyes-Hernandez, Michael W Halter, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: The characterization of internal structures in a polymeric device, specifically of a final product, will require a different set of metrology techniques than those traditionally use in the characterization of microelectronic devices. OCT is relati ...

10. Measurement of the optical properties of solid biomedical phantoms at the National Institute of Standards and Technology
Topic: Optics
Published: 3/6/2015
Authors: Paul Lemaillet, David W Allen, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: Solid phantoms that serve as a proxy for human tissue and provide a convenient test subject for optical medical imaging devices. In order to determine quantitative performance of a given system, the absolute optical properties of the subject mus ...
