NEUTRON ORBITAL ANGULAR MOMENTUM CONTROL

We have invented and reduced to practice a class of devices for controlling the orbital angular momentum (OAM) of neutron beams. These devices are based on spiral phase plates that can be produced by conventional numerically-controlled machining of common materials. OAM programming, which has been...

NON-INERTIAL PHOTON MOMENTUM SENSOR

Radiation pressure is a force that results when light reflects from a mirror. By measuring the force on a mirror, the power in a laser beam can be assessed. We have invented a miniaturized mirrored force sensor that combines several key elements to make a sensor that is smaller, faster, more...
