This letter describes experimental investigations of surface-emitting channel drop filters using donor-type point defect cavities and line-defect waveguides in two-dimensional photonic crystal slabs. By using donor-type defect cavities with three and four linearly aligned missing air holes, filter quality factors of around 2600 and 6400, respectively, are achieved experimentally, compared to the quality factor of 400 of previous acceptor-type defect cavities. Radiation patterns and polarization properties of light emitted from the defects are also discussed. The results indicate that these donor-type defects are very useful for the development of ultrasmall high-performance channel add/drop filters. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.

    Abstract. The polarization of the VUV light generated by four-wave sum-frequency mixing process omega[sub 4] = 2 omega[sub 1] + omega[sub 2] in mercury vapor at room temperature is analyzed in detail. Due to the specific two-photon transition used to enhance the nonlinear process, the...

    A new scheme of undulator magnet arrangements has been proposed and developed as a polarization-switching radiation source, and its test-stand was installed in the 2.5-GeV Photon Factory storage ring (PF ring) in order to investigate the effects on the beam orbit. The closed orbit distortion...

    Reflections in synchrotron radiation beam lines tend to change the state of polarization of the radiation. This effect is more pronounced for steep angle of incidence, i.e. at low photon energy (say below 100 eV) beam lines. The APPLE II undulator UE112 at BESSY has all four magnetic rows...
