The aberrations of reflective optical systems with one plane of symmetry are investigated in the most general case, with freeform surfaces and possibly different locations of the tangential and sagittal object and image. In this first paper in a series of two, we establish generalized ray-tracing equations including transverse aberrations up to...

The aberrations of reflective optical systems with planar symmetry are investigated in the most general case, with freeform surfaces and possibly different locations of the tangential and sagittal object and image. In this second and last paper, closed-form expressions are derived for the aberrations created by an individual mirror. We study two...

A coupled dielectric-metal metasurface (CDMM) filter consisting of amorphous silicon (a-Si) rings and subwavelength holes in Au layer separated by a SiO2 layer is presented. The design parameters of the CDMM filter is numerically optimized to have a polarization independent peak transmittance of 0.55 at 1540 nm with a FullWidth at Half Maximum ...

Optically resonant high-index dielectric metasurfaces featuring Mie-type electric and magnetic resonances are usually fabricated by means of planar technologies, which limit the degrees of freedom in tunability and scalability of the fabricated systems. Therefore, we propose a complimentary post-processing technique based on ultrashort (≤ 10 ps)...

We present a planar spectro-polarimeter based on Fabry-Pérot cavities with embedded polarization-sensitive high-index nanostructures. A 7 μm-thick spectro-polarimetric system for 3 spectral bands and 2 linear polarization states is experimentally demonstrated. Furthermore, an optimal design is theoretically proposed, estimating that a system...

For high-contrast imaging systems, the time delay is one of the major limiting factors for the performance of the extreme adaptive optics (AO) sub-system and, in turn, the final contrast. The time delay is due to the finite time needed to measure the incoming disturbance and then apply the correction. By predicting the behavior of the...

We demonstrate the strong coupling between a single electron spin in silicon and a single photon in a superconducting microwave cavity. Using the same cavity we perform rapid high-fidelity single-shot readout of two-electron spin states.

We experimentally demonstrate the preservation of entanglement between an NV spin and a photon upon quantum frequency conversion to the Telecom band. This is a crucial step in realizing long-distance quantum networks.

In this paper, the design and the characterization of a novel interrogator based on integrated Fourier transform (FT) spectroscopy is presented. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first integrated FT spectrometer used for the interrogation of photonic sensors. It consists of a planar spatial heterodyne spectrometer, which is implemented...

A superoscillatory lens (SOL) is known to produce a sub-diffraction hotspot that is useful for high-resolution imaging. SOLs have not yet been directly used in a confocal reflection setup, as the SOL suffers from poor imaging properties. Additionally, the illuminating intensity distribution of the SOL still has high-intensity rings called...

A novel back-contacted solar cell based on a submicron copper indium gallium (di)selenide (CIGS) absorber is proposed and optically investigated. First, charge carrier collection feasibility is studied by band diagram analysis. Then, two back-contacted configurations are suggested and optimized for maximum current production. The results are...

Homodyne interferometry with a frequency comb as multi-wavelength source is a powerful method to measure long distances with high accuracy. The measurement principle requires that individual comb modes are spectrally resolved, making hundreds or thousands of accurately known wavelengths available for interferometry. For this reason the method...

Due to the rather broad band emission spectrum of the extremely hot plasma in its extreme ultra-violet (EUV) source, an EUV lithography scanner also projects out-of-band vacuum- and deep-UV (OoB V/DUV) light on the photoresist on a wafer. As this type of uncontrolled and undesirable light can activate resist chemistry, it will impair the...

In this paper, we present a design strategy for single layer metasurface lenses based on dielectric resonators. This strategy is based on a robust optimization procedure for the resonator distribution in order to meet required performances (e.g. encircled energy, bandwidth, field of view, etc.). Possible deviations due to manufacturing errors are...

Hyperbolic metamaterials (HMMs) are anisotropic materials with a permittivity tensor that has both positive and negative eigenvalues. Here we report that by using a type II HMM as a cladding material, a waveguide that only supports higher-order modes can be achieved, while the lower-order modes become leaky and are absorbed in the HMM cladding....

This paper shows how measurement errors in phase shifting interferometry (PSI) can be described to a high degree of accuracy in a linear approximation. System error sources considered here are light source instability, imperfect reference phase shifting, mechanical vibrations, nonlinearity of the detector, and quantization of the detector signal...

Performance and efficiency of multiple processor computers depend strongly on the network that interconnects the distinct coilaborating processors. Constrained connectivity forces much of the potential computing speed to be used to compensate for the limitation in connections. The availability of a multiple parallel 1/0 connections allows full...

We have performed theoretical determination and experimental calibrations ofan objective grating designed for high resolution spectroscopy of astronomical faint sources in the EUV and far-UV wavelength ranges (500-1400 Á). First through theoretical calculations we show the feasibility of the concept with an aspheric shape for the grating blank...

In inspection of materials, noncontact generation and detection of ultrasound using laser techniques has a growing interest. Before using these techniques in practical inspection tasks, some problems have to be overcome. To obtain maximum sensitivity for the detection of defects, control of beam direction and focusing of the generated ultrasound...
