Sputtered Metal Deep-UV Interference Filters

Manufactured using single substrates of UV-grade fused silica and backed by warranty, these filters are available in 11 different passbands in a wide range of sizes, from 2mm-200mm. Laser damage thresholds >0.15 J/cm2 using a 355 nm laser (10 ns pulse, 10 Hz), and suffer no degradation after 2 hours @ 300 C.

Tunable ECDL's for rack integration

TOPTICA's new MDL pro combines four tunable diode lasers in one 19-inch module with the same specifications as TOPTICA's well known DL pro and DFB pro series. It enables excellent laser performance with the unique and easy to use standard electronic sub-racks. Such a transportable solution will advance the development of mobile experiments like optical clocks, quantum computers and sensors.


Combined Spectrometer / Microscope 

Time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy is a valuable tool for investigating excited state dynamics in semiconductors.

By interfacing a spectrometer like the FluoTime 300 with a microscope such as the MicroTime 100, one can easily record time-, space-, and spectrally resolved luminescence spectra.

Far-field nanoscopy on a semiconductor quantum dot via a rapid-adiabatic-passage-based switch    pp68 - 72
Timo Kaldewey, Andreas V. Kuhlmann, Sascha R. Valentin, Arne Ludwig, Andreas D. Wieck et al.

A spatial resolution of 30 nm (=λ/31) exceeding the diffraction limit is achieved by super-resolution fluorescence microscopy. The nanoscopic imaging scheme can be applied to coherent quantum-mechanical systems such as quantum dots, as well as colour centres.


Large magneto-optical Kerr effect and imaging of magnetic octupole domains in an antiferromagnetic metal    pp73 - 78
Tomoya Higo, Huiyuan Man, Daniel B. Gopman, Liang Wu, Takashi Koretsune et al.

The magneto-optical Kerr effect is demonstrated in an antiferromagnetic metal. Large rotation angles, magnetic octupole domain imaging was enabled.


Large optical nonlinearity of nanoantennas coupled to an epsilon-near-zero material    pp79 - 83

Enhanced nonlinear response of 50-nm-thick antennas in the vicinity of an epsilon-near-zero material enable an optically induced refractive index change of ±2.5 over a 200 nm spectral range.


Nature Electronics — now live 

Nature Electronics publishes both fundamental and applied research across all areas of electronics, incorporating the work of scientists, engineers and industry. At its core, the journal is concerned with the development of new technologies and understanding the impact of these developments on society.

Wavefront shaping with disorder-engineered metasurfaces    pp84 - 90
Mooseok Jang, Yu Horie, Atsushi Shibukawa, Joshua Brake, Yan Liu et al.

Using designer-disordered metasurfaces, optical input–output characteristics, which are typically difficult to obtain, can be known a priori. The approach is used for wavefront shaping, high-numerical-aperture focusing and fluorescence imaging.


Time-reversal symmetry breaking with acoustic pumping of nanophotonic circuits    pp91 - 97
Donggyu B. Sohn, Seunghwi Kim & Gaurav Bahl

Time-reversal symmetry is broken via an acoustic pumping scheme enabling demonstration of a frequency shifting optical isolator with 15 dB asymmetry and 1 GHz bandwidth.


High-efficiency electroluminescence and amplified spontaneous emission from a thermally activated delayed fluorescent near-infrared emitter    pp98 - 104
Dae-Hyeon Kim, Anthony D'Aléo, Xian-Kai Chen, Atula D. S. Sandanayaka, Dandan Yao et al.

Near-infrared organic light-emitting diodes that operate in the 700 nm region with an external quantum efficiency of almost 10% are reported.


Tandem luminescent solar concentrators based on engineered quantum dots    pp105 - 110
Kaifeng Wu, Hongbo Li & Victor I. Klimov

Multijunctions have long been used to enhance photovoltaic solar cell efficiency. Here, a large-area tandem luminescent solar concentrator is demonstrated using two types of quantum dot with low reabsorption.


High-speed optical coherence tomography by circular interferometric ranging    pp111 - 116
Meena Siddiqui, Ahhyun S. Nam, Serhat Tozburun, Norman Lippok, Cedric Blatter et al.

Using an ultrafast, time-stretched frequency comb laser operating with repetition rates from 7.6 MHz to 18.9 MHz, a rapid and large-volumetric-field optical coherence tomography at an imaging rate of up to 7.5 volumes per second is demonstrated.
