OSA Student Chapter Meeting





MAIN TALK
SPEAKER: Ellie Figueroa
TITLE: Atomic clocks for controlling light fields
ABSTRACT:
Another look at Sege Haroche’s work. Normal Ramsey’s interferometer has matured into a tool that can nondestructively detect the birth and death of single photons, prepare photon number states via feedback loops, and entangle atoms and photons into specific states.


OPTICS NEWS
SPEAKER: Peter Zhokhov
TITLE: Floating volumetric image formation using dihedral corner array.
ABSTRACT:
A volumetric display system using an optical imaging device consisting of numerous dihedral corner reflectors placed perpendicular to the surface of a metal plate is proposed. Image formation by the dihedral corner reflector array is free from distortion and focal length. In the proposed volumetric display system, a two-dimensional real image is moved by a mirror scanner to scan a three-dimensional space.
