Optical Metrology (OR)

The activities of the group are related, but are not limited to, the science and technologies for precision measurements of time, frequency, distance, and material properties. In particular, these technologies include optical frequency standards, broadband lasers, supercontinua and frequency-comb generation, control, as well as conversion between optical and microwave frequencies, pulse shaping and arbitrary waveform generation. Considerable attention is also paid to precision interferometry and other novel measurement methods, including correlation, modulation, imaging microscopy, and nano-probing. Note: the Optical Fabrication and Testing technical group of the Fabrication, Design, and Instrumentation division is dedicated to the design, development, and use of metrology systems for the characterization of optics.
