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.

TOPTICA's Continuously Tunable Laser

The CTL is the ultimate choice when looking for a laser that is widely tunable without any mode-hopping. It has high power, a narrow linewidth and high absolute and relative wavelength accuracy. Wide scans can be performed with highest resolution. With the fully digital, low noise and drift DLC pro controller, the CTL laser is easy to use and operate via touch-screen and knobs as well as via remote PC GUI and command language.

Review Articles


Next-generation organic photovoltaics based on non-fullerene acceptors    pp131 - 142
Pei Cheng, Gang Li, Xiaowei Zhan & Yang Yang

This Review describes how non-fullerene electron acceptor materials are bringing improvements in the power conversion efficiency and stability of organic solar cells.




Universal impedance matching and the perfect transmission of white light    pp143 - 149
Ku Im, Ji-Hun Kang & Q-Han Park

An impedance matching layer that enables perfect transmission of all-angle, broadband white light is proposed. The concept is experimentally demonstrated in the microwave regime.


Femtosecond X-ray Fourier holography imaging of free-flying nanoparticles    pp150 - 153
Tais Gorkhover, Anatoli Ulmer, Ken Ferguson, Max Bucher, Filipe R. N. C. Maia et al.

Femtosecond X-ray Fourier holography imaging with record-high lateral resolution below 20 nm is demonstrated. Phase information is encoded into the interference of the diffraction patterns of a reference particle with a measurement sample.


Activation of the surface dark-layer to enhance upconversion in a thermal field    pp154 - 158
Jiajia Zhou, Shihui Wen, Jiayan Liao, Christian Clarke, Sherif Abdulkader Tawfik et al.

Phonons on the surface of lanthanide-doped upconversion materials are used to combat thermal quenching, enabling ~2,000-fold emission enhancement.

Bright colloidal quantum dot light-emitting diodes enabled by efficient chlorination    pp159 - 164
Xiyan Li, Yong-Biao Zhao, Fengjia Fan, Larissa Levina, Min Liu et al.

Green light-emitting diodes with a brightness of 460,000?cd?m–2 and a low turn-on voltage of 2.5?V are enabled by the use of a chlorination treatment to provide conductive passivation of the devices.


Combined multi-plane phase retrieval and super-resolution optical fluctuation imaging for 4D cell microscopy    pp165 - 172
A. Descloux, K. S. Grußmayer, E. Bostan, T. Lukes, A. Bouwens et al.

By combining the sensitivity and high temporal resolution of phase imaging with the specificity and high spatial resolution of fluorescence microscopy, a 4D microscope is demonstrated that visualizes in three dimensions the fast cellular processes in living cells at up to 200 Hz.


Experimental statistical signature of many-body quantum interference    pp173 - 178
Taira Giordani, Fulvio Flamini, Matteo Pompili, Niko Viggianiello, Nicolò Spagnolo et al.

An experimental protocol to discern true multi-particle interference is demonstrated in a boson sampling device without dynamic reconfiguration. Statistical features of three-photon interference were evaluated in a seven-mode integrated interferometer.


Giant multiphoton absorption for THz resonances in silicon hydrogenic donors    pp179 - 184
M. A. W. van Loon, N. Stavrias, Nguyen H. Le, K. L. Litvinenko, P. T. Greenland et al.

By using a terahertz free-electron laser, multiphoton transitions between impurity states in p-doped Si are investigated. The two- and three-photon integrated absorption cross-sections are found to be the highest ever reported for a discrete oscillator system.
