Temporal dynamics of second-order correlation function in nanolasers

We report on the temporal dynamics of second-order correlation function of high-β nanolasers excited with Gaussian-shaped pulses. We show that the nature of output radiation from the nanolaser depends on the excitaiton pulse envelope.

Simulation of Linear Depolarization Effects During Supercontinuum Generation in Optical Fiber

We simulate depolarization mechanisms in optical fiber based on linear and nonlinear effects, including a linear polarization mode coupling term to reproduce experimental observations.

Solving JumpIN’ Using Zero-Dependency Reinforcement Learning (Student Abstract)

Reinforcement learning seeks to teach agents to solve problems using numerical rewards as feedback. This makes it possible to incentivize actions that maximize returns despite having no initial strategy or knowledge of their environment. We implement …

Polarization resolution of a fiber-based supercontinuum spanning more than 2 octaves

We present a novel broadband spectrometer that resolves an orthogonal set of linear polarization states. Our system reveals the frequency-dependent nature of depolarization mechanisms occurring in highly-nonlinear fibers.

Polarization analysis of a supercontinuum generated in a germania-doped photonic crystal fiber

We investigate experimentally the effect of input polarization and pulse energy on the generated supercontinuum. Our detection system reveals the polarization properties of the supercontinuum, a typically unexplored parameter of these sources.
