  • A new generation of devices where the electronic, optical or magnetic state of a system can be controlled optically on the ultrafast timescale is one of the most compelling technological ramifications of the rapidly advancing field of strongly correlated electrons. However, for real-world applications it is also necessary to incorporate these compounds in appropriate environments (e.g. optical fibers or silicon-based electronics), to ensure compatibility with existing technologies (e.g. telecom wavelengths), room temperature operation and limited power densities. Here, we report on the study of the photo-activated optical switching in nanorods of strongly correlated VO{sub 2}. The particles are grown bymore » ion-implantation and self-assembly within a Silica matrix or an optical fiber, operate at room temperature and can be switched between the insulating and metallic phase within less than 100 fs. The energy threshold to achieve switching corresponds to approximately 500 pJ within the core of a single mode fiber and is compatible with current diode technologies. Tailoring of the spherical/cylindrical geometry results in control of the spectral response of the system, which is dominated by the impulsive formation of a surface plasmon upon the insulator-to-metal transition. The response at the technologically important 1.55 {micro}m wavelength is in this way maximized.« less
  • Imaging faint companions (exoplanets and brown dwarfs) around nearby stars is currently limited by speckle noise. To efficiently attenuate this noise, a technique called simultaneous spectral differential imaging (SSDI) can be used. This technique consists of acquiring simultaneously images of the field of view in several adjacent narrow bands and in combining these images to suppress speckles. Simulations predict that SSDI can achieve, with the acquisition of three wavelengths, speckle noise attenuation of several thousands. These simulations are usually performed using the Fraunhofer approximation, i.e. considering that all aberrations are located in the pupil plane. We have performed wavefront propagationmore » simulations to evaluate how out-of-pupil-plane aberrations affect SSDI speckle noise attenuation performance. The Talbot formalism is used to give a physical insight of the problem; results are confirmed using a proper wavefront propagation algorithm. We will show that near-focal-plane aberrations can significantly reduce SSDI speckle noise attenuation performance at several {lambda}/D separation. It is also shown that the Talbot effect correctly predicts the PSF chromaticity. Both differential atmospheric refraction effects and the use of a coronagraph will be discussed.« less
  • We have developed a new fluorescence-based biosensor for sensitive detection of species involved in a multivslent interaction. The biosensor system utilizes specific interactions between proteins and cell surface receptors, which trigger a receptor aggregation process. Distance-dependent fluorescence self-quenching and resonant energy transfer mechanisms were coupled with a multivalent interaction to probe the receptor aggregation process, providing a sensitive and specific signal transduction method for such a binding event. The fluorescence change induced by the aggregation process can be monitored by different instrument platforms, e.g. fluorimetry and flow cytometry. In this article, a sensitive detection of pentavalent cholera toxin which recognizesmore » ganglioside GM1 has been demonstrated through the resonant energy transfer scheme, which can achieve a double color change simultaneously. A detection sensitivity as high as 10 pM has been achieved within a few minutes (c.a. 5 minutes). The simultaneous double color change (an increase of acceptor fluorescence and a decrease of donor fluorescence intensity) of two similar fluorescent probes provides particularly high detection reliability owing to the fact that they act as each other's internal reference. Any external perturbation such as environmental temperature change causes no significant change in signal generation. Besides the application for biological sensing, the method also provides a useful tool for investigation of kinetics and thermodynamics of a multivalent interaction.
