A nonlinear optical interferometer based on crystal superlattices has been demonstrated for the first time in a cascade of up to five crystals. The enhanced sensitivity due to quantum interference and correlations makes it a promising tool for sensing, imaging, and spectroscopy.
This study provides a new way to naturally eliminate the SERS fluorescence background by doping with Nd ions. These fundamental discussions here provide a path to enhance Raman scattering and reduce the SERS background and a guideline for the investigation of CT and a new method for exploring fluorescence quenching.
An on-chip optical vortex detector based on spin-Hall nanoslits is reported. The detector is sensitive to the spin of the incoming beam and can simultaneously record the polarization and phase singularity. Although the reported device relies on fast decaying surface plasmons, it represents an important step forward in the development of optical vortex-based integrated photonic devices.
