BSI Presents Awards for Advances in Ultrafast Research

EAST LANSING, Mich., Feb. 1, 2013 — Dr. Jan Rothhardt and professor Georgios Alexandrakis will be recognized for their contributions to ultrafast research during an awards reception hosted by Biophotonic Solutions Inc. (BSI) during Photonics West 2013 in San Francisco.

The “Applications of Adaptive Optics in Ultrafast Research” reception acknowledges advances in attosecond science, nonlinear microscopy and micromachining using BSI’s proprietary multiphoton intrapulse interference phase scan (MIIPS) optimized ultrashort pulses.

Rothhardt of Helmholtz-Institute Jena and the Institute of Applied Physics in Germany will receive the award for his work titled, “Pulse shaping in high peak power fiber lasers: theory, experiments and application to HHG generation.” Alexandrakis of the University of Texas at Arlington will be recognized for his research, “Towards two-photon raster image cross-correlation spectroscopy (RICCS) with a supercontinuum light source and pulse phase control.”

Two additional awards will be announced during the event. Presentations will be made by each recipient. There will also be a brief talk on “Intensity dependent GVD of optical media and its measurement by single-shot MIIPS,” a process that explains why femtosecond lasers are “temperamental,” and why static optics require daily adjustment.

The event will also highlight how adaptive pulse compression and optimization of ultrashort pulses impact active areas of research in life sciences, materials science and physics, with important implications for future commercial products.

BSI’s goal is to make ultrafast laser applications practical by eliminating the need for manual adjustment of fixed optics.

GLOSSARY
adaptive optics
Optical components or assemblies whose performance is monitored and controlled so as to compensate for aberrations, static or dynamic perturbations such as thermal, mechanical and acoustical disturbances, or to adapt to changing conditions, needs or missions. The most familiar example is the "rubber mirror,'' whose surface shape, and thus reflective qualities, can be controlled by electromechanical means. See also active optics; phase conjugation.
