Phase-space window and degrees of freedom of optical systems with multiple apertures

Ozaktas, Haldun M.

We show how to explicitly determine the space-frequency window (phase-space window) for optical systems consisting of an arbitrary sequence of lenses and apertures separated by arbitrary lengths of free space. If the space-frequency support of a signal lies completely within this window, the signal passes without information loss. When it does not, the parts that lie within the window pass and the parts that lie outside of the window are blocked, a result that is valid to a good degree of approximation for many systems of practical interest. Also, the maximum number of degrees of freedom that can pass through the system is given by the area of its space-frequency window. These intuitive results provide insight and guidance into the behavior and design of systems involving multiple apertures and can help minimize information loss. (C) 2013 Optical Society of America


Cohen's bilinear class of shift-invariant space/spatial-frequency signal representations for particle-location analysis of in-line Fresnel holograms
Ozgen, MT; Demirbaş, Kerim (The Optical Society, 1998-08-01)
The Cohen bilinear class of shift-invariant space-frequency representations provides an automated means for extracting three-dimensional particle locations from in-line holograms without any focusing. For two-dimensional holograms a fixed-frequency slice technique, based on examining, concurrently, the zero-frequency slice and a nonzero-frequency slice of the two-dimensional representation used, is developed for particle-location analysis. The trade-off between auto-term sharpness and cross-term suppression...
Continuous dimensionality characterization of image structures
Felsberg, Michael; Kalkan, Sinan; Kruger, Norbert (Elsevier BV, 2009-05-04)
Intrinsic dimensionality is a concept introduced by statistics and later used in image processing to measure the dimensionality of a data set. In this paper, we introduce a continuous representation of the intrinsic dimension of an image patch in terms of its local spectrum or, equivalently, its gradient field. By making use of a cone structure and barycentric co-ordinates, we can associate three confidences to the three different ideal cases of intrinsic dimensions corresponding to homogeneous image patche...
Nonlinear optical properties of a Woods-Saxon quantum dot under an electric field
AYTEKİN, ÖZLEM; Turgut, Sadi; Unal, V. Ustoglu; Aksahin, E.; Tomak, Mehmet (Elsevier BV, 2013-12-01)
A theoretical study of the effect of the confining potential on the nonlinear optical properties of two dimensional quantum dots is performed. A three-parameter Woods-Saxon potential is used within the density matrix formalism. The control of confinement by three parameters and an applied electric field gives one quite an advantage in studying their effects on the nonlinear properties. The coefficients investigated include the optical rectification, second and third-harmonic generation and the change in the...
Design of metasurface polarization converter from linearly polarized signal to circularly polarized signal
In this study, we both numerically and experimentally present a metasurface (MS) polarization converter to transform linearly polarized signal into circularly polarized one. The unit cell consists of two rectangular metallic patches placed at the crossed corners of rectangularly arranged inclusions. The results of a full-wave Electromagnetic (EM) simulator are compared to those of free space measurement using two horn antenna at microwave frequency regime. For a linearly polarized antenna, the s-parameters ...
Engineering nonlinear response of nanomaterials using Fano resonances
Turkpence, Deniz; Akguc, Gursoy B.; Bek, Alpan; Taşgın, Mehmet Emre (IOP Publishing, 2014-10-01)
We show that nonlinear optical processes of nanoparticles can be controlled by the presence of interactions with a molecule or a quantum dot. By choosing the appropriate level spacing for the quantum emitter, one can either suppress or enhance the nonlinear frequency conversion. We reveal the underlying mechanism for this effect, which is already observed in recent experiments: (i) suppression occurs simply because transparency induced by Fano resonance does not allow an excitation at the converted frequenc...
