We present a simple modification to a swept source optical system that overcomes the limitations in the depth range associated with the short coherence length of fast swept lasers. It is based on a wavelength dependent delay induced by a diffraction grating pair with negative dispersion incorporated in a reference arm of a Mach-Zehnder optical coherence tomography interferometer. The experimental depth range in air obtained was as large as 1.6 cm for a source coherence length of 4 mm. © 1995-2012 IEEE.

Two-dimensional continuous time quantum random walks (CTQRW) are physical processes where quantum particles simultaneously evolve in different permissible directions within discrete graphs. In order to force the quantum walkers (QWs) to evolve in such a fashion, one generally requires periodic potentials. Here, we demonstrate that two-dimensional CTQRW can be generated in free space by properly tailoring the initial wave functions. We analytically show that within a certain spatial region the arising probability distribution quantitatively resembles the probability pattern exhibited by a QW traversing a periodic lattice potential. These theoretical predictions were experimentally verified using classical laser light, appropriately shaped by a spatial light modulator. Expanding the presented results to the case of multiple walkers may open new possibilities in quantum information technology using bulk optics. © 2014 Optical Society of America.

A fiber laser sensor, which consists of two coupled cavities based on three fiber Bragg gratings (two of them acting as sensing elements) and is interrogated via the longitudinal mode beating frequency, is presented. The two resonant cavities have lengths of 4250 m and 4297 m, respectively. Their beating frequency is of the order of 24 kHz, and its shift as a function of the variation of the period of one (or both) of the sensing gratings, induced by strain or temperature changes, can be measured by a radio-frequency analyzer. The system is suitable for long-distance sensing with high spatial resolution and high sensitivity. © 2009 Elsevier GmbH All rights reserved.

We report on the discovery of an infrared jet from a deeply embedded infrared counterpart of the 6.7 GHz methanol maser emission (MME) in W42 (i.e., W42-MME). We show that W42-MME drives a parsec-scale H2 outflow, with the detection of a bow shock feature at ∼0.52 pc to the north. The inner ∼0.4 pc part of the H2 outflow has a position angle of ∼18° and the position angle of ∼40° is found farther away on either side of the outflow from W42-MME. W42-MME is detected at wavelengths longer than 2.2 μm and is a massive young stellar object with an estimated stellar mass of 19 ± 4 . We map the inner circumstellar environment of W42-MME using Very Large Telescope (VLT)/NACO adaptive optics Ks and L' observations at resolutions of ∼0.″ 2 and ∼0.″1, respectively. We discover a collimated jet in the inner 4500 AU using the L' band, which contains prominent Brα line emission. The jet is located inside an envelope/cavity (extent ∼10,640 AU) that is tapered at both ends and is oriented along the north-south direction. Such observed morphology of the outflow cavity around the massive star is scarcely known and is very crucial for understanding the jet-outflow formation process in massive star formation. Along the flow axis, which is parallel to the previously known magnetic field, two blobs are found in both the NACO images at distances of ∼11800 AU, located symmetrically from W42-MME. The observed W42-MME jet-outflow configuration can be used to constrain the jet launching and jet collimation models in massive star formation. © 2015. The American Astronomical Society.

A numerical and experimental comparison between different synthetic holographic codes is presented. Its performance is evaluated considering the generation of Bessel and Laguerre-Gaussian beams, as examples. Some reviews of computer generated holograms (CGHs)1, 2 have been published in the literature but none of them have included a detailed comparison of their performance in the encoding of structured optical fields. The numerical evaluation includes an analysis of the theoretical features of each hologram and a calculation of Signal-to-Noise Ratio of the reconstructed field while the experimental evaluation assume the implementation of the holograms using a pixelated phase modulator. © 2010 SPIE.
