      Abstract: Tobias Hansson, Pedro Parra-Rivas, Martino Bernard, François Leo, Lendert Gelens, Stefan Wabnitz
      We report a theoretical investigation of quadratic frequency combs in a dispersive second-harmonic generation cavity system. We identify different dynamical regimes and demonstrate that the same system can exhibit both bright and dark localized cavity solitons in the absence of a temporal walk-off. [Opt.

  • Generation of broadband near-field optical spots using a thin-film silicon
           waveguide with gradually changing thickness
    • Authors: Kaifeng Zhang, Shin-ichi Taniguchi, Takehiro Tachizaki
      Abstract: Kaifeng Zhang, Shin-ichi Taniguchi, Takehiro Tachizaki
      We developed a thin-film silicon waveguide with gradually changing thickness for generating a near-field optical spot. Theoretical studies show that the surface plasmons that are resonantly excited on the waveguide generate a hot spot with a wide spectral range. We experimentally confirmed ... [Opt.

      In this Letter, we report a compact and robust coherent source, operating in mid-infrared (IR) and based on the Fe:ZnSe chalcogenide gain medium, optically pumped by an Er:ZBLAN fiber laser. The output power of 2.1 W with a 59% slope efficiency with respect to the absorbed pump power at ... [Opt. Lett. 43, 5941-5944 (2018)]

  • Fiber optic refractive index sensors through spectral detection of
           Rayleigh backscattering in a chemically etched MgO-based
           nanoparticle-doped fiber

      Abstract: Marzhan Sypabekova, Sanzhar Korganbayev, Wilfried Blanc, Takhmina Ayupova, Aliya Bekmurzayeva, Madina Shaimerdenova, Kanat Dukenbayev, Carlo Molardi, Daniele Tosi
      We demonstrate and experimentally validate a fiber optic refractive index (RI) sensor obtained by simply etching a high-scattering MgO-based nanoparticle-doped single-mode fiber in hydrofluoric acid (HF). The fiber has 32.3 dB stronger Rayleigh scattering than a standard fiber, allowing a ... [Opt. Lett. 43, 5945-5948 (2018)]

      Abstract: Vincent Juvé, Gwenaëlle Vaudel, Zoltan Ollmann, Janos Hebling, Vasily Temnov, Vitalyi Gusev, Thomas Pezeril
      Controlling light polarization is one of the most essential routines in modern optical technology. Since the demonstration of optical pulse shaping by spatial light modulators and its potential in controlling the quantum reaction pathways, it paved the way for many applications as a coherent ...

      Abstract: F. Meyer, N. Hekmat, S. Mansourzadeh, F. Fobbe, F. Aslani, M. Hoffmann, C. J. Saraceno
      We demonstrate terahertz (THz) generation at megahertz repetition rate by optical rectification in GaP crystals, using excitation average power levels exceeding 100 W. The laser source is a state-of-the-art diode-pumped Yb:YAG SESAM-mode-locked thin-disk laser, capable of generating 580 fs pulses ... [Opt. Lett. 43, 5909-5912 (2018)]

  • In-cavity soliton self-frequency shift ultrafast fiber lasers
    • Authors: Junsong Peng, Hao Luo, Li Zhan
      Abstract: Junsong Peng, Hao Luo, Li Zhan
      Lasing wavelengths are generally limited at the gain bands of active materials. In this Letter, we propose and demonstrate a new concept of ultrafast fiber laser based on in-cavity soliton self-frequency shift (SSFS). Benefiting from SSFS, the wavelength of ultrafast fiber lasers can be beyond the ... [Opt. Lett. 43, 5913-5916 (2018)]

    • Authors: Mark Lyubarov Alexander Poddubny
      Abstract: Mark Lyubarov, Alexander Poddubny
      We theoretically study the dissipative Bose–Hubbard model describing the array of tunneling-coupled cavities with non-conservative photon–photon interaction. The bound two-photon states are formed in this system either in the limited range of the center-of-mass wave vectors or in the ... [Opt. Lett. 43, 5917-5920 (2018)]

      Abstract: Chaoliang Chen, Weisong Shi, Ryan Deorajh, Nhu Nguyen, Joel Ramjist, Andrew Marques, Victor XD Yang
      In this Letter, we propose a beam-shifting optical coherence tomography scheme for speckle reduction and blood flow rate calculation, where variations of the speckle pattern and Doppler angle were generated by parallel shifting of the sample beam incident on the objective lens. The resultant ... [Opt. Lett. 43, 5921-5924 (2018)]
