  • High-dimensional cryptography with spatial modes of light: tutorial

    Otte, Eileen; Nape, Isaac; Rosales-Guzmán, Carmelo; Denz, Cornelia; Forbes, Andrew; Ndagano, Bienvenu
    • 2020
    • Journal of the Optical Society of America B 37(11) A309-A323  View: HTML | PDF

    Fast and secure sharing of information is among the prime concerns of almost any communication system. While commonly used cryptographic algorithms cannot provide unconditional security, high-dimensio...

  • Stochastic and probabilistic equations for three- and four-level lasers: tutorial

    McKinstrie, C. J.
    • 2020
    • Journal of the Optical Society of America B 37(5) 1333-1358  View: HTML | PDF

    In this tutorial, Langevin stochastic equations and Markov probability equations are used to model electron- and photon-number fluctuations in three- and four-level lasers. Equations are derived for t...

  • Quantum electrodynamics in modern optics and photonics: tutorial

    Andrews, David L.; Bradshaw, David S.; Forbes, Kayn A.; Salam, A.
    • 2020
    • Journal of the Optical Society of America B 37(4) 1153-1172  View: HTML | PDF

    One of the key frameworks for developing the theory of light–matter interactions in modern optics and photonics is quantum electrodynamics (QED). Contrasting with semiclassical theory, which depicts e...

  • Analytical calculation of optical forces on spherical particles in optical tweezers: tutorial

    Ranha Neves, Antonio Alvaro; Cesar, Carlos Lenz
    • 2019
    • Journal of the Optical Society of America B 36(6) 1525-1537  View: HTML | PDF

    Arthur Ashkin was awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics for the invention of optical tweezers. Since their first publication in 1986, optical tweezers have been used as a tool to measure forces and ...
