Thin Film Micro

The monochromatic Bessel beam is a remarkable exception. Such beams behave propagation invariant over relatively extended regions with respect to their characteristic spatio-temporal signatures. Spatially resolved wavefront sensing and time-resolved autocorrelation measurement of ultrashort pulses are usually separated procedures. Thin-film microoptical beam shapers have an enormous potential for future applications like the two-dimensional ultrafast optical processing, multichannel laser-matter interaction, nonlinear spectroscopy or advanced measuring techniques. If the maximum phase difference is divided into sufficient steps say, 256 , the resulting resolution allows approximation of phase profiles comparable to dielectric nanolayer structures. It is shown that not only spatial but even temporal pulse information can be reconstructed from interference patterns formed by single photons. The thickness profiles have been characterized interferometrically.

Finally, the generation of single-maximum nondiffracting beams by self-apodizing system design is discussed. The book concentrates on diffractive and refractive micro- optical elements, such as lenses, fan-out gratings, optimized phase elements and polarisers. It is shown that the spectral interference of ultrabroadband conical beams results in spatio-temporal structures of characteristic X-shape, so-called X-waves, which are interesting for robust optical communication. Another new chapter on meteorology explains the growth of sophisticated, automatic tools capable of measuring thickness and spacing of sub-micron dimensions. Basic theory and applications are illustrated.

He is also involved in research on nanostructuring, pulsed vortex beams, statistical methods of spectroscopy, and quantum-interference experiments. Experiments were performed with a Ti:sapphire laser oscillator emitting linearly polarized radiation at pulse durations in 10 fs range. He is currently a PhD student, working on adaptive shaping and diagnosis of femtosecond pulses with spatial light modulators. Classical microoptical systems, however, distort the temporal pulse structure of few cycle pulses by diffraction and dispersion. He has been with the Max Born Institute since 1998, where he develops new methods for beam shaping and pulse characterization. Two distinct media configurations of different topology are dealt with: a plane slab and a hollow cylinder.

However, the symmetry between electric and magnetic fields suggests, that the two versions of the simplified electromagnetism ought to be equally considered. The obtained results can be essential for proper description of the propagating waves within thin layers for which 3D approach is not available due to mathematical complexity and reducing the layer to a lower dimensional structure seems the only possible option. Figure shows an example of a propagating femtosecond-wave field. Characterization of Thin-Film Microoptics 6. Outlook References Future Credits Glossary Index. With arrangements of multiple small phase axicons programmed into liquid-crystal-on-silicon spatial light modulators, a large variety of non-conventional nondiffracting beams of even highly asymmetrically partitions can be achieved with widely propagation invariant spectral and temporal properties.

Fringe-resolved noncollinear autocorrelation extracts information about the pulse duration of ultrashort optical signals from analyzing the intensity envelope of fringes. For a growing number of applications in nonlinear spectroscopy, micro- and nano-machining, optical data processing, metrology or medicine, an adaptive shaping of ultrashort pulsed, ultrabroadband laser beams into propagation-invariant linear focal zones light blades is required. Bessel functions; electromagnetism; photons For an extended wavefront analysis, structured materials processing, optical information technologies, or superresolving microscopy with ultrashort pulses, more flexible and robust techniques of beam shaping are required. In general the whole aberration can be divided in a constant part for which the system acts in the open loop mode and closed loop mode for the remaining variable part. Thin-film microoptical beam shapers have an enormous potential for future applications like the two-dimensional ultrafast optical processing, multichannel laser-matter interaction, nonlinear spectroscopy or advanced measuring techniques. Programming microaxicon phase functions in gray value maps enables for a flexible variation of phase and geometry. Different types of segmented lasers including imaging and self-imaging arrays as coupling, outcoupling and focussing components have been tested.

However, the symmetry between electric and magnetic fields suggests, that the two versions of the simplified electromagnetism ought to be taken into account. The spatial frequencies for the angular interval vary between 0. Recent theoretical and experimental results of basic and applied research are addressed. This chapter describes the non-diffracting Bessel-like beams concept in detail and report on related experiments with few-cycle laser pulses. By detecting nonlinear autocorrelation functions after frequency conversion, even an evaluation of temporal asymmetry and frequency chirp are enabled. In sub-10-fs region, temporal and spatial coordinates of propagating wavepackets get non-separable.

It is shown that the spectral interference of ultrabroadband conical beams results in spatio-temporal structures of characteristic X-shape, so-called X-waves, which are interesting for robust optical communication. For the fabrication of thin-film structures, vapor deposition with shading masks was used. This approach enables for innovative solutions in shaping light fields in spatial, temporal and spectral domain. Continuous-relief microstructures of refractive, reflective and hybrid characteristics are obtained by vapor deposition technologies with shadow masks in rotating systems. Thin Film Micro-Optics stands for novel types of micro-optical components and systems, which combine the well-known features of miniaturized optical elements with the specific advantages of thin optical layers. The description within the three-dimensional theory is compared to the simplified analysis in two dimensions. Programmable liquid-crystal devices for high-resolution spatial shaping of ultrashort-pulsed laser beams promise to be an alternative approach to passive microoptical structures.
