Nano-optic endoscope for high-resolution optical coherence tomography

Nano-optic endoscope for high-resolution optical coherence tomography

In recent published work, we have shown that a metalens may be directly integrated with an endoscope to improve the resolution of optical coherence tomography …

 

Ultrasensitive 3D force spectroscopy detects unambiguously exotic force on a particle in an evanescent field

Ultrasensitive 3D force spectroscopy detects unambiguously exotic force on a particle in an evanescent field

It was predicted in recent years that a non-chiral particle in an evanescent optical field (such as one generated by total internal reflection) is able …

 

Squeezing light at the nanoscale

Squeezing light at the nanoscale

We have demonstrated deep subwavelength resonators and nano-dipole antennas for infrared light using polaritons in van der Waals materials. These structures concentrate light into volumes …

 

Laser frequency combs as Wi-Fi transmitters

Laser frequency combs as Wi-Fi transmitters

In a new paper published in Optica, we propose and demonstrate a novel functionality for a semiconductor laser. Instead of using the optical output (i.e., …
