• Developing Single-Laser Sources for Multimodal Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering Microscopy 

      Pegoraro, Adrian Frank (2011-08-11)
      Coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microscopy has developed rapidly and is opening the door to new types of experiments. This work describes the development of new laser sources for CARS microscopy and their use ...
    • Inline Coherent Imaging 

      Webster, Paul J. L. (2012-11-21)
      In laser materials processing, the direct measurement and characterization of material and process depth is traditionally a diffcult task. This is particularly difficult when such information needs to be obtained in real-time ...
    • Optical properties of chiral thin films and microparticles 

      Becerra Carrillo, Rodrigo (2016-09-20)
      In this work I study the optical properties of helical particles and chiral sculptured thin films, using computational modeling (discrete dipole approximation, Berreman calculus), and experimental techniques (glancing angle ...
    • Optical Properties of Individual and Bundled Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes 

      Anderson, Mitchell (2014-09-13)
      Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are nearly ideal one-dimensional systems, with aspect ratios exceeding 10$^{5}$:1. The band gap of a SWCNT, determined by the species, covers the majority of the visible spectrum ...
    • The optical properties of metamaterial waveguide structures 

      Reza, Arvin (2008-11-04)
      Metamaterials, artificially engineered structures with negative average relative permittivity and permeability, provide a route to creating potential devices with exciting electromagnetic properties that cannot be obtained ...
    • Probing Molecular Dynamics with Non-Linear Optical Techniques 

      Lausten, Rune (2011-09-01)
      The dynamics of molecules in the gas and liquid phase is investigated using ultrafast optical techniques. The development of sub-25 fs ultrafast sources using noncollinear optical parametric amplification is discussed. ...
