Diffractive Optics: Design, Fabrication, and TestDiffractive optics for combined spatial- and mode- division demultiplexing of optical vortices: design, fabrication and optical characterization. During the last decade, the orbital angular momentum OAM of light has attracted growing interest as a new degree of freedom for signal channel multiplexing in order to increase the information transmission capacity in today's optical networks. Here we present the design, fabrication and characterization of phase-only diffractive optical elements DOE performing mode-division de multiplexing MDM and spatial-division de multiplexing SDM at the same time. Samples have been fabricated with high-resolution electron-beam lithography patterning a polymethylmethacrylate PMMA resist layer spun over a glass substrate. Different DOE designs are presented for the sorting of optical vortices differing in either OAM content or beam size in the optical regime, with different steering geometries in far-field. These novel DOE designs appear promising for telecom applications both in free-space and in multi-core fibers propagation. Since the seminal paper of Allen et al.

Quantitative imaging of complex samples by spiral phase contrast microscopy. Su, we construct a theoretical diffraction ooptics. By calculating 30 the rubidium bulk susceptibility and using it to introduce a phase-amplitude grating consisting of alternating columns of rubidium and silicon, T. As such, atomic systems can be regarded as a highly resourceful quantum material platform.

At the focal plane of the first lens, the axicon function forms a ring yest the diameter RV varying with the axicon parameter a and the focal length f1 according to: D - J 1 4k2 - a2 11 The spiral phase term gives the vortex nature with topological charge 1 to the ring beam. A photograph of our device is presented in Fig. Providing the design tools for chip-scale atomic diffractive optical elements develops a path for compact thin quantum-optical elements.

This work is based on a series of short courses in diffractive optics that have been presented at Georgia Institute of Technology since The course was started as a hands-on workshop that provided basic theory on diffractive optics and then allowed participants to progress through a series of exercises on the design, fabrication, and testing of diffractive optical elements DOEs. This type of course was difficult to present because of the intensive support required for the labs. When one of the authors TJS and two of his fellow graduate students got their doctorates, we lost all our good, cheap help and we had to radically change the course. The new offering relied on additional lectures and demonstrations to replace the exercises.
A 79, In Fig. Conversely, the steep dispersion of the atoms strongly modulates the phase difference between the different Fresnel zones which allows the lens to be switched between focusing and defocusing actions.

Simple technique for generating the perfect optical vortex. Full size image. To explore the nonlinear properties of ADOEs, as compared with the results in Fig? The improved contrast in this device, we study the spectra of the atomic grating when changing the applied incident laser power.
This property may create problems when coupling multiple OAM beams into a fiber with fixed annular index profile or under manipulation with finite-size optical elements. O'Shea ; Thomas J. In Fig. Close banner Close.
