A hollow-core photonic crystal fiber gas cell and method for preparing the same. The hollow-core photonic crystal fiber gas cell comprises a single-mode fiber, a fiber splicing protection sleeve, a hollow-core photonic crystal fiber, and a photoelectric detector. One end of the single-mode fiber is fusion spliced with one end of the hollow-core photonic crystal fiber to form a fusion splice and seal one end of the hollow-core photonic crystal fiber gas cell. The fiber splicing protection sleeve covers and protects the fusion splice. The other end of the hollow-core photonic crystal fiber is processed into an output end by fusion sealing, and the surface of the output end faces, but is not parallel to, a detection surface of the photoelectric detector.

The unique characteristics of ultrafast lasers, such as picosecond and femtosecond lasers, have opened up new avenues in materials processing that employ ultrashort pulse widths and extremely high peak intensities. Thus, ultrafast lasers are currently used widely for both fundamental research and practical applications. This review describes the characteristics of ultrafast laser processing and the recent advancements and applications of both surface and volume processing. Surface processing includes micromachining, micro-and nanostructuring, and nanoablation, while volume processing includes two-photon polymerization and three-dimensional (3D) processing within transparent materials. Commercial and industrial applications of ultrafast laser processing are also introduced, and a summary of the technology with future outlooks are also given. © 2014 CIOMP.

This paper reviews our studies on coherent and incoherent synthetic-aperture imaging ladars (SAILs). Using optical diffraction, a systematic theory of side-looking SAIL was mathematically formulated and the necessary conditions for assuring a correct phase history are established. Based on optical transformation and regulation of wavefront, a down-looking SAIL of two distinctive architectures was invented and the basic principle, systematic theory, design equations, and necessary conditions are presented. An incoherent spotlight-mode SAIL was proposed, and detailed mathematically. To validate the concepts, laboratory experiments were conducted. The spatially and temporally dependent laser speckles are analyzed by applying the partial coherence theorem, and proposals to reduce their effect are given. Optical antennas and their components are discussed. It is shown that for down-looking SAIL the width of the scanning strip may be greatly increased without loss of high resolution, and the influences from atmospheric turbulence and unmodeled line-of-sight motion can be automatically compensated. © 2013 Optical Society of America.
