 Method and  generating optical polar return-to-zero amplitude modulation signal using reflective semiconductor optical amplifier and wavelength-division-multiplexed passive optical network system using the same patent thumbnailMethod and generating optical polar return-to-zero amplitude modulation signal using reflective semiconductor optical amplifier and wavelength-division-multiplexed passive optical network system using the same
The present invention can operate a reflective semiconductor optical amplifier at ultrahigh speed using a polar return-to-zero (rz) modulation method, and operate a reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (rsoa) whose modulation bandwidth is limited at ultrahigh speed by generating signals vertically symmetrical using a newly suggested polar rz signal generator when generating an amplitude modulation signal at a transmission end. The present invention can overcome the problem that a modulation speed cannot be increased to 10 gb/s or above due to signal distortion by inter-symbol-interference when generating an ultrahigh speed amplitude modulation signal using an rsoa of low price having a very narrow modulation bandwidth in an rsoa-based optical network.

Microscope with an acousto-optical device


The invention relates to a microscope having an acousto-optic apparatus (13) that, with a mechanical wave that is characterized by a preferably adjustable frequency, removes from a polychromatic and collinear detected light bundle (18) portions of illuminated light, scattered and/or reflected at a sample, having an illuminating light wavelength associated with the frequency. The microscope is notable for the fact that a crystal (30) of the acousto-optic apparatus in which the mechanical wave propagates, and the propagation direction of the mechanical wave, are oriented relative to the detected light bundle incident into the crystal in such a way that the acousto-optic apparatus deflects, with the mechanical wave, both the portion of the detected light bundle having the illuminating wavelength and a first linear polarization direction, and the portion of the detected light bundle having the illuminating wavelength and a second linear polarization direction perpendicular to the first polarization direction, and thereby removes them from the detected light bundle..

Method and device for determining the position and orientation of a specular surface forming a diopter


A method of determining the position and the orientation of at least one interface comprises illuminating the interface that is determined with at least one non-polarized diffuse light source point, using an image-forming device to acquire an image enabling polarization information determined about the reflection(s) of the source point on the interface to be determined, and in the image, locating any reflection of the light source point as reflected by the interface. For each located reflection, the light ray reaching the image-forming device together with at least its degree of polarization as its polarization parameter is calculated.
