Raman spectra of germanosilicate core fibers before and after UV irradiation were investigated. Significant changes of the Raman spectra after irradiation indicate transformation of the glass structure. A possible interpretation of the observed changes is proposed.
PURPOSE We developed an instrument that permits non-contact, continuous, high speed and high precision monitoring of corneal thickness and tested the stability and reproducibility of measurements made over extended time periods and under various conditions of low surface reflectivity encountered during protracted exposure of the unmoistened corneal surface… (More)
Ion implantation can be regarded as a universal tool for fabricating low-loss waveguide structures in optically active oxide materials . In this contribution we report on im
We present an optical trapping system combining individually addressable multiple laser traps with fluorescence spectroscopy. An in-line set of 64 near-IR laser diodes is used to create a line of individually addressable traps inside a microfluidic chip. This system is completed by an excitation/detection line for spectrally resolved fluorescence imaging of… (More)
Polarization sensitive optical low-coherence reflectometry (OLCR) is used for measuring the complex fiber Bragg gratings (FBG) reflection coefficient. We determine the beat length directly from oscillations in the OLCR amplitude with a resolution of 10(-6) and a spatial resolution only limited by the minimum beat length or the coherence length of the light… (More)
