Coexistence of transmission mechanisms for independent multi-parameter sensing in a silica capillary-based cascaded structure.
The coexistence of transmission mechanisms, including Fabry-Perot (FP), Mach-Zehnder (MZ), and anti-resonant (AR), is demonstrated via a silica capillary-based cascaded structure and shows the possibility to optimize the transmission spectra for independent multi-parameter sensing by tailoring the existence percentages of different mechanisms.

Vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) light is critical for the study of molecules and materials, but the generation of femtosecond pulses in the VUV region at high repetition rates has proven difficult. Here, we

High-energy pulse self-compression and ultraviolet generation through soliton dynamics in hollow capillary fibres
Optical soliton dynamics can cause extreme alteration of the temporal and spectral shape of a propagating light pulse. This occurs at up to kilowatt peak powers in glass-core optical fibres and at

A highly efficient experimental scheme for the generation of deep-ultraviolet (UV) ultrashort light pulses using four-wave mixing in gas-filled kagomé-style photonic crystal fiber achieves remarkably high pump-to-idler energy conversion efficiencies.
Ultrafast broadband circular dichroism in the deep ultraviolet
The measurement of chirality and its temporal evolution are crucial for the understanding of a large range of biological functions and chemical reactions. Steady-state circular dichroism (CD) is a
For a small driven system coupled strongly to a heat bath, internal energy and exchanged heat are identified such that they obey the usual additive form of the first law. By identifying this exchanged

Plasmonic nanocrystals with hot spots are able to localize optical energy in small spaces. In such physical systems, near‐field interactions between molecules and plasmons can become especially
