Terabit Optical Burst Sampling – Method and Design for Single-shot Optical Sampling


The characterization of a single laser pulse in real-time is of great interest. Here, the difficulty of detection originates from the required resolution in time (about a factor of ten higher than the measuring pulse). This concerns not only the sampling resolution but the sampling rate as well.<br><br> The invention allows single-shot laser pulse characterization with a time resolution in the THz regime. It consists of a laser system that provides the sampling pulse, an optical element (e.g. non-linear crystal) which generates the measuring signal through superposition of the sampling pulse and the measuring pulse, and a third element for the detection.<br><br> The method based on the transformation of the problem from the time domain into the spectral domain. The sampling laser is a laser system which provides light pulses that have different wavelengths at different time. With an optical element (e.g. grating) it is possible to seperate the wavelength components in space. Therefore, the detection of the sampling points with minimal spatial distance is possible without any problem. This means, every spectral component can be assigned to a distinct time. <br><br> This single-shot optical sampling offers a resolution in the femtosecond time domain.<br><br>

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
