CLEO: 2013 press luncheon spotlights new techniques in optofluidics, temporal cloaking, cryolasers
Date:6/7/2013

WASHINGTON, June 7, 2013CLEO: 2013, the Conference on Lasers and Electro Optics, brings together the world's foremost scientists and engineers working in the field of laser science. From June 9-14, in San Jose, more than 1,800 technical presentations, with content stemming from fundamental laser science to photonic applications and products will be presented in such fields as ultrafast lasers, energy-efficient optics, quantum electronics, biotechnology and more.

Hot topics in the field will be presented to the media in a special press lunch event Tuesday, June 11 from 12 1 p.m. in the San Jose Convention Center, Room 230A. The press program boasts a line-up of three leading scientists who will present seminal research on clinical diagnosis of infection using optical techniques for counting individual viruses; time cloaking for improved optical communications; and advanced cold diode laser designs for ultra-high power laser applications.

Iain McKinnie, business development senior manager at Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Center and CLEO: 2013 program co-chair, will moderate the lunch program. McKinnie's distinguished career focuses on new technology concepts in diode-pumped waveguide, fiber and bulk solid-state lasers, laser radar, guidestar lasers, OPOs and Raman lasers.

This year's program offers a new round-robin format that will allow reporters to hear each speaker present key points of his research in a small group setting and engage in one-on-one discussions before moving on to the next researcher and topic. Topics include:

  • A Telecom-Based Temporal Cloak. A teeny wrinkle in time? Just published research demonstrates a new temporal cloak capable of hiding 46 percent of the entire time axis at a repetition rate of 12.7 GHz. These results introduce temporal cloaking into the practical domain of secure optical communication, allowing for sending information without people knowing it's there. To be presented at CLEO: 2013 and published this week in the peer-reviewed journal Nature, Joseph Lukens, Ph.D. candidate at Purdue University, will deliver his team's latest findings on temporal optics for unrecorded events.

  • Clinical Detection of Viral Infection on an Optofluidic Chip. New optics-based methods for detecting single particles tagged with fluorescent labels on a microfluidic chip can determine the exact viral load of a sample by counting individual virus particles. These techniques are faster and less expensive than standard tests, and offer the potential to conduct the measurements in a medical office or hospital instead of a laboratory. Holger Schmidt, professor of electrical engineering at the at the University of California, Santa Cruz and director of the W.M. Keck Center for Nanoscale Optofluidics, will describe this new approach and how it may lead to earlier detection of disease before it spreads.

  • Cryolaser: Innovative Cryogenic Diode Laser Bars Optimized for Emerging Ultra-high Power Laser Applications. Cryolaser diode laser designs exploit the improvement in semiconductor material properties at sub-zero temperatures to increase efficiency and power. Optimized single 9xx-nm laser bars demonstrate record peak pulse energy of 2J (1.7kW, 1.2ms, -50C). According to physics experts, if these bars can demonstrate lifetime, they could significantly enhance uses for compact high-power laser systems. Paul Crump, scientist at the Optoelectronics Department at Germany's Ferdinand-Braun-Institut will present these advances.
