TOM 11 Tapered optical fibers, from fundamental to applications

Tapered multicore fibers for energy-scalable fiber laser systems

With active multicore fibers (MCFs), many parallel amplifying waveguides can be densely assembled into a common glass cladding. A tapered fiber geometry applied to MCFs enhances the power- and energy scalability of these systems by increasing the doped waveguide volume and reducing peak irradiance while maintaining low output mode order. Recent high-energy experiments have achieved 37 mJ ns-class pulse energies with Yb-doped tapered MCFs, with potential application to a new generation of compact MCF-based coherently-combined laser systems. In this submission, latest experimental results with tapered MCFs and flexible fabrication of taper profiles as a post-draw processing step will be discussed. Numerical analyses of MCF tapers will be presented, using beam propagation method (BPM) and mode-decomposition techniques to study mode coupling and inter-core crosstalk. These simulations are used to guide the tapering of existing fibers and aid the design of future “taper-ready” MCFs.

Highly excited (so-called Rydberg) atoms are the key ingredient of many quantum information

schemes. In this presentation, we shall theoretically investigate how spontaneous emission properties and van

der Waals interactions of such atoms are modified in the neighbourhood of an optical nanofiber with respect

to the free-space (vacuum) case. This work constitutes a very preliminary step towards the realization of a

quantum network based on atomic ensembles linked via optical nanofibers.

We present experimental results demonstrating the possibility to tune the wavelength of the photon pair emitted through four wave mixing in a nanofiber, using the pressure of a gas surrounding the nanofiber. Using Argon, a shift of idler wavelength of -1.1nm/bar is measured demonstrating fine adjustment possibility of emission wavelength, allowing to choose between different WDM channels.

Non-reciprocal amplification of light using cold atoms coupled to an optical nanofiber

Sebastian Pucher, Christian Liedl, Shuwei Jin, Arno Rauschenbeutel, Philipp Schneeweiss

Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Germany

Optical nanofibers realized as the waist of tapered silica fibers can be used to trap and optically interface laser-cooled atoms. Building on this system, we experimentally show a novel scheme for the non-reciprocal Raman amplification of light. While typically either the magneto-optical effect, a temporal modulation or an optical nonlinearity is employed to break reciprocity, in our approach, this results from the spin of the atoms forming the gain medium. By taking advantage of the inherent spin-momentum locking present in optical nanofibers, we perform an experiment in which we set the amplification direction by a suitable preparation of the atomic spin state. Our approach is general and, suitable quantum emitters provided, could also be implemented beyond the optical domain of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Experimental investigation of light-matter interaction when transitioning from cavity QED to waveguide QED

Daniel Lechner, Riccardo Pennetta, Martin Blaha, Philipp Schneeweiss, Jürgen Volz, Arno Rauschenbeutel

Humboldt University Berlin, Germany

Cavity quantum electrodynamics (cavity QED) is conventionally described by the Jaynes- or Tavis-Cummings model, where quantum emitters couple to a single-mode cavity. The opposite scenario, in which an ensemble of emitters couples to a single spatial mode of a propagating light field, is described by waveguide QED, where emitters interact with a continuum of frequency modes. Here we present an experiment where an ensemble of cold atoms strongly couples to a fiber-ring resonator with variable length containing an optical nanofiber. By changing the length of the resonator we can tailor the density of frequency modes and thus explore the transition from cavity QED to waveguide QED. We analyse the response of the ensemble--cavity system after the sudden switch-on of resonant laser light and find that for progressively longer resonators, the Rabi oscillations typical of cavity QED disappear and the single-pass dynamics of waveguide QED appear. Our measurements shed light on the interplay between the single-pass collective response of the atoms to the propagating cavity field and the ensemble--cavity dynamics.

Practical limits and opportunities with speckle metrology

Mikael Sjödahl

Luleå University of Technology, Sweden

In this presentation, the role of speckles as a carrier of information in phase-based optical metrology is re-visited. Starting with the fundamental mechanisms for speckle decorrelation it is shown that information about the state of an object is transferred through the modified mutual coherence function and can be detected either through the phase, speckle movement, speckle decorrelation or as a combination. The presentation is focusing on practical scale laws that set the limit for what is possible to achieve with present day technology and is demonstrated with a few examples incorporating measurements of microstructural changes, strain, shape, lenses and other refractive index objects.

Influence of displacement gradients on laser speckle photography

The influence of first and second order displacement gradients on laser speckle photography is investigated in a simulative study that is supported with experimental data. The systematic error is found to scale linearly with the second order gradient, while the random error scales with the first order gradient. The gradient-based error dominates the uncertainty budget of an in-process measurement during single tooth milling close to the machined surface.

Coherent Fourier scatterometry for particle detection on structured surfaces

Anubhav Paul, Dmytro Kolenov, Silvania F. Pereira

TU Delft, Netherlands, The

We demonstrate the detection of particles/contamination present on a structured surface using Coherent Fourier scatterometry (CFS) by applying Fourier filtering to the scanned maps, which eliminates background effects due to the electronic noise as well the structure itself. We show that by using filters in the Fourier space we can significantly improve the detection capabilities of the particles present on the structure.

Coherent Fourier Scatterometry (CFS) is a scatterometry technique that has been applied for grating and nanoparticle detection. Here, it has been challenged to verify the detectability of the so-called killer defects on SiC samples for power electronic applications. It has been shown that CFS is able to precisely recognize these defects regardless of their shape or size. CFS could be considered as a possible alternative for this purpose.

Characterisation of nanowire structures with scatterometric and ellipsometric measurements

Jana Grundmann, Tim Käseberg, Bernd Bodermann

Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), Bundesallee 100, 38116 Braunschweig, Germany

Nanowire structures arranged in a hexagonal lattice are to be characterized in terms of their diameter, height and pitch. A scatterometer and an imaging Mueller matrix ellipsometer, which is a combination of a commercial Mueller matrix ellipsometer and a microscope, have been used as measurement tools. These measurements are supported by numerical simulations using the finite element method to characterize the structure parameters.

Toward tomography imaging of acoustic fields using digital holography

Pascal Picart, Saoucene Hassad

Le Mans University, France

The characterization and control of waves in acoustics, and more generally in wave physics, is of great interest because resulting technological innovations may impact several domains: environmental and energy transition, health sector, and industrial sector in the broadest sense. The characterization requires to develop new approaches to provide qualitative and quantitative insight of the acoustic fields of interest. Generally, imaging acoustic fields is performed by using microphone arrays which have a low spatial resolution. Here, we aim at demonstrating the proof-of-concept of simultaneous full-field and multi-view imaging of acoustic field in the free space using digital color holography and a single monochromatic high-speed sensor. The simultaneous acquisition of the necessary set of data is thus realized "single shot" and then numerical process yields images of both the amplitude and phase of the acoustic field along three different directions of observation. This has for advantage of permitting consistent and rapid data acquisition. We present the first experimental results and the first tomographic reconstruction of an acoustic field propagating in the free-field at 40 k Hz.

Investigation of dynamic influences in tilted-wave interferometry

Gregor Scholz, Michael Schulz, Ines Fortmeier

Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), Germany

Aspherical and freeform lenses allow for compact optical systems and have therefore gained high interest in optics. The interferometric measurement of these forms is a challenge, for which the tilted-wave interferometer (TWI) has been developed. To evaluate the measurement uncertainty of the TWI, both the static and the dynamic influence parameters have to be investigated. In this work, we focus on the dynamic influences on the measurement data of the interferometer. To this end, the individual influences as well as their point of insertion into the process chain are identified. Then the measurement of the interferogram data is modelled as a Monte Carlo simulation. The propagation of different influences through the data process chain to the optical path length differences (OPDs) is also simulated, and the resulting variation of the OPDs is estimated. Furthermore, the variation of the OPDs resulting from measured interferogram data is investigated for comparison. The analysis and quantification of variation of the OPDs along with its contributing influence sources are important steps on the way towards a full uncertainty estimation of optical form measurement with the TWI.

Low divergence structured beam In view of precise long-range alignment

Miroslav Sulc1,2, Jean-Christophe Gayde3

1Technical University of Liberec, Czech Republic; 2Institute of Plasma Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Czech Republic; 3CERN, Switzerland

A new method of generation of a Structured Laser Beam (SLB) with non-diverging central core was proposed and is promising for creating long distance multipoint alignment systems. This beam is generated by a set-up consisting of two convex lenses in Kepler telescope arrangement. The first one is a high refractive index ball lens, second one is a standard lens. The beam, in cross-section consisting of light and dark concentric circles, propagates over a large distance. The central core of the SLB has a very small divergence which can be tuned. A divergence of 10 μrad was proven experimentally. In this experiment, the small initial beam core diameter of 10 μm, and its diameter of 1.5 mm at a distance of 150 m, show its ability for use as a multipoint fiducial reference line. This small beam divergence seemingly lies beyond the diffraction limit for laser beams.

Holographic single-image depth reconstruction

Simon Hartlieb, Christian Schober, Tobias Haist, Stephan Reichelt

Institut für Technische Optik, Universität Stuttgart, Germany

In this article a camera-based single-image sensor is presented, that is able to measure the distance of multiple object points. The experimental results show an accuracy of 8,51 µm within a depth range of 20 mm. The sensor consists of a camera, whose lens is upgraded with a diffractive optical element (DOE). It fulfils two tasks: adding a vortex point spread function (PSF) and replication of the vortex PSFs to a predefined pattern of K spots. Both, shape and rotation of the vortex PSF is sensitive to defocus. By applying the depth reconstruction to each of the K replications and averaging the results, we experimentally show, that the reconstruction of the depth signal can be improved by a factor of up to 3.

The accurate estimation of the separation between two signals is at the core of many modern technologies. We show new quantum-inspired schemes able to estimate that separation at the quantum limit. The method works in the spatial, temporal, and frequency domains. The question of whether the optical coherence brings any metrological advantage to mode projections is discussed.

A virtual microscope for simulation of Nanostructures

Poul-Erik Hansen1, Lauryna Siaudinyte2

1DFM, Denmark; 2VSL, The Netherlands

Light-matter interplay is widely used for analyzing the topology of surfaces on small scales for use in areas such as nanotechnology, nanoelectronics, photonics, and advanced materials. Conventional optical microscope imaging methods are limited in resolution to a value comparable to the wavelength, the so-called Abbe limit, and cannot be used to measure nano-sized structures. Scatterometry is an optical method that can measure structures smaller than the wavelength. However, the relative uncertainties of the structure dimensions measured with scatterometry increase with decreasing structure size, and the industry is therefore looking for replacing simple intensity based scatterometry with a phase-sensitive measurement method such as coherent Mueller ellipsometry. In this work, we present a virtual microscope capable of simulating the coherent Mueller ellipsometry and scatterometry response from one-dimensional and two-dimensional periodic structures. Furthermore, we argue that coherent nonnormalized Mueller ellipsometry gives results with less uncertainties than standard normalized Mueller ellipsometry.

Polarization dependency of the 3D transfer behavior in microsphere enhanced interferometry

Lucie Hüser, Tobias Pahl, Peter Lehmann

University of Kassel, Germany

Enhancing the lateral resolution limit in optical microscopy and interferometry is of great interest in recent research. In order to laterally resolve structures including feature dimensions below the resolution limit, microspheres applied in the optical near-field of the specimen are shown to locally improve the resolution of the imaging system. Experimental and simulated results following this approach obtained by a high NA Linnik interferometer are analyzed in this contribution. For further understanding of the transfer characteristics, measured interference data are compared with FEM (finite element method) based simulations with respect to the polarization dependency of the relevant image information.

Influence of camera temperature on MTF measurements with finite image distance

Markus Schake, Michael Schulz

PTB, Germany

Line Spread Function (LSF) based Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) measurements with finite image distance are sensitive to displacement errors in axial direction. Axial displacements between the sample and camera detector cause defocusing and thus, a MTF error proportional to the axial gradient of the sample's MTF. This article demonstrates the influence of the camera temperature on the focus position in the MTF reference setup at PTB.

From quantum imaging to quantum reading and pattern recognition by quantum correlations

Ivano Ruo Berchera

INRIM, Italy

The use of quantum states of light, such as entanglement and squeezing, allows surpassing the limitation of conventional measurement essentially increasing the amount information extracted about an object under investigation for a fixed probing energy. While quantum metrology deals with the estimation of an unknown value of a parameters encoded in a state or a physical transformation

(quantum channel), quantum hypothesis testing deals with the discrimination among discrete values characterized beforehand.

We show the coherence properties of a signal can be measured by a Hartmann wavefront sensor in a nonclassical regime. Recasting the detection theory of the classical Hartmann sensor in the sense of quantum tomography enables to measure the coherence function, which is an analogy to the density matrix of mixed quantum states. Two methods were tested for the reconstruction of the coherence matrix from the intensity scan in the nonclassical mode of the Hartmann sensor. The reconstruction was performed in a classic way using the POVM matrix and using data pattern tomography.

Stokes CMOS polarimetry limits studied at non-classical polarisation states

Eva Roiková, Štěpán Kunc

Technical University of Liberec, Czech Republic

We present the study of the two polarisation state analysers. The first consists of a polarisation camera with a removable QWP, and the second consists of a non-polarisation camera with a rotating QWP and a stationary linear polariser. The theoretical analysis and experiment focus on studying the influence of polarimeter optical components accuracy and errors such as retardation errors, misalignments and extinction ratio on Stokes parameters precision. This research is a cornerstone to understanding polarisation state analysers limits. We examined laser beams with non-classical polarisation distribution, namely the Poincaré beam and the beam with radial polarisation.

Fabrication influences on a miniaturised stokes polarimeter consisting of stacked nano-optical wire grid polarizer and retarders

Thomas Siefke, Markus Walther, Carsten Stock, Uwe Zeitner

FSU Jena, Germany

The polarization properties of light can be fully controlled with nano-optical wire grid polarizers and artificial birefringent grating structures. We demonstrate an integrated polarimeter based on stacked layers of such elements. However, the optical performance of such elements is fundamentally limited and may be further altered by deviations arising from the fabrication processes. In this contribution we investigate the influences on the polarimetry performance for such a device.

Elementary, my dear Zernike: model order reduction for accelerating optical dimensional microscopy

Dimensional microscopy is an essential tool for non-destructive and fast inspection of manufacturing processes. Standard approaches process only the measured images. By modelling the imaged structure and solving an inverse problem, the uncertainty on dimensional estimates can be reduced by orders of magnitude. At the same time, the inverse problem needs to be solved in a timely manner. Here we present a method of accelerating the inverse problem by reducing images to their elementary features, thereby extracting the relevant information and distinguishing it from noise. The resulting reduction in complexity allows the inverse problem to be solved more efficiently by utilize cutting edge machine learning based optimization techniques. By employing the techniques presented here, we are able to perform for highly accurate and fast dimensional microscopy.

The manufacturing rate of laser chemical machining (LCM) is currently restricted to avoid disruptive boiling bubbles in the process fluid. An increase necessitates adjustments to the laser beam or fluid properties. However, the current understanding of the surface removal mechanisms is insufficient to achieve a consistent removal quality under these conditions. For an improved process modeling, in-process measurements of the surface geometry, the surface temperature and the boiling bubbles are required. Due to the complex process environment, no suitable in-process measurement technique for the geometry or surface temperature exists. This contribution presents an indirect geometry measurement approach based on confocal fluorescence microscopy that offers the potential for near-process application in the LCM process environment. As a result, the micro-geometry of different surfaces is shown to be indirectly measurable under LCM-equivalent process conditions such as thick fluid layers or gas bubbles in the beam path. Furthermore, a combined fluorescence-based measurement of geometry and temperature is proposed.

We report a custom microscope setup whose mechanical and optical components are adjusted by the means of an alignment autocollimator (AAC). Residual centring and angular misalignments of the components towards the microscope’s optical axis are below 500 µm and 1 mrad, respectively. We further perform measurements of dot structures with diameters close to the diffraction limit (nominal diameter = 200 nm; chrome on glass mask) as suitable measures for the evaluation of the microscope’s adjustment and to determine/ visualize the optical aberrations, which affect the image formation of microscopes.

We realized an imaging Mueller matrix microscope for nanostructure characterization. For investigations on nanoform characterization via Mueller matrix images, we measured and simulated Mueller matrix images of specially designed nanostructures. As an approach towards machine learning evaluation in imaging ellipsometry, we calculated Haar-like features of the images and observed a higher sensitivity to subwavelength features in off-diagonal matrix elements compared to microscopy.
