Microorganisms frequently colonize the nectar of angiosperm species. Though capable of altering a suite of traits important for pollinator attraction, few studies exist that test the degree to which they mediate pollinator foraging behavior. The objective of our study was to fill this gap by assessing the abundance and diversity of yeasts associated with(More)
We analyze frequency comb generation in CW-pumped singly-resonant optical parametric oscillators using cascaded second-order nonlinearities. We explain experimental results, trade-offs and current limits on performance, and examine scaling towards broader bandwidths in the future.
We consider SESAM soliton-modelocking via cascaded quadratic nonlinearities in the normal dispersion regime. We explain the theory, perform a design study for our experimental implementation in LiB<sub>3</sub>O<sub>5</sub>/Yb:CaGdAlO<sub>4</sub>, and present detailed numerical simulations of this laser.
