The efficiency of the quantum key distribution depends on the characteristics of the detector system
Korean Journal of Optics and Photonics, volume 12, issue 2, 2001, Pages 71~76
We studied quantum cryptography based on the quantum nature of light. We must reduce the intensity of the light pulse to the single photon regime for quantum cryptographic communication. Considering the noise and the quantum efficiency of the detector, however, we have to fmd a criterion for which we are able to distinguish the error caused by eavesdropping from other system noises. By changing the bias voltage of the detector and the threshold of the signal voltage, we find the safe region for which we can distribute the quantum key with positive proof of no-eavesdropping. The quantum key we used is a four state quantum key (BB84). BB84).
Study of the error chsracteristics in a mirror loss measurement system using an exqonential decay metod
Korean Journal of Optics and Photonics, volume 12, issue 2, 2001, Pages 77~82
Error characteristics of a mirror loss measurement system using an exponential decay method were studied, with the two samples having about 200-ppm-loss and 30-ppm-loss, respectively. In order to minimize the decay signal deviation from an exponential curve due to cavity length fluctuation, a data average method was tried. The data average method significantly improved the exponential curve fitting error of the decay signal, so that for a 6 decay signal data average the loss measurement error was reduced by about 2.4 times for the 200-ppm-loss mirror and 1.3 times for the 30-ppm-loss mirror compared with a single shot measurement. Day-to-day mirror loss repeatability error for the two samples was investigated. The repeatability error was measured to be about 5% for the 200-ppm-loss mirror and about 26.4% for the 30-ppm-loss mirror. Low decay signal average effect and high repeatability error in the low loss mirror measurement were explained with non-uniform spatial loss distribution of the sample and contamination from the environment, in addition to the error sources of the mirror loss measurement system itself. The influence of cavity length fluctuation and cavity length measurement error on the mirror loss measurement system performance was theoretically calculated. It confirmed that the requirement for the cavity length parameters was not so strict in the mirror loss measurement system of several ppm resolution. ution.
Talbot imaging of periodic amplitude objects and its visibility
Korean Journal of Optics and Photonics, volume 12, issue 2, 2001, Pages 83~90
The Talbot effect for periodic objects with the spatial period p illuminated by expanded coherent light is analyzed by Fresnel diffraction theory, and the Talbot distance (Zr) at which we can observe 1: 1 imaging without any lenses can be defined. We confmned experimentally the Talbot imaging of line, circular, X -type and '||'&'||'copy;-type 2 dimensional alTay gratings at ZT. At the same time, we observed phase reversed Talbot imaging at Zr/2 and Talbot subimage with p/2 at Zr/4 and 3Zr/4. The visibility of Talbot images as a function of the number of slits of the input grating was measured by the FFf (Fast Fourier Transform) results of these images. As a result stationary maximum visibility of V = 0.25 was obtained from grating numbers with more than 15 slit pairs.

The saturating property of
and dye film as the saturable absorber
Korean Journal of Optics and Photonics, volume 12, issue 2, 2001, Pages 98~102
To analyze the saturating process of
crystal and plastic organic dye as the saturable absorber, we have measured the residual optical losses between a free running and a passive Q-switching mode for various optical densities. The undepleted ground state population density and the saturated transmission of the saturable absorber have been evaluated by the additional optical losses with the increased threshold pump energies between two resonators. ill the passive Q-switching mode, the saturable transmission of saturable absorber is less than the maxrnium saturable transmission due to the undepleted ground state population density. nsity.
The scanned point-detecting system for three-dimensional measurement of light emitted from plasplay panel
Korean Journal of Optics and Photonics, volume 12, issue 2, 2001, Pages 103~108
In this paper, we designed and made the scanned point detecting system for 3-dimensional measurement of the light emitted from plasma display panel (PDP) , and we measured and analyzed 3-dimensional light emitted from a real PDP by using this scanned point detecting system. The scanned point detecting system has a point detector with a pinhole. The light emitted from the source at the in-focus position can pass through the pinhole and be collected by detector. The light from other sources at outof-focus positions is focused at points in front of or behind the pinhole, and thus it is intercepted by the pinhole. Therefore, we can detect light information from a particular point of a PDP cell of 3-dimensional structure. We know the electric field distribution inside the PDP cell from the 3-dimensionallight intensity distribution measured by using the scanned point detecting system. As the Z axial measurement increases, the intensity of light detected increases and intensity of light detected on the inside edge of the ITa electrode is larger than outside edge of the ITa eletrode and gap of the ITa electrodes. Also, as the measurement point moves from one barrier rib to another, the detected light is weaker near to the barrier ribs than at the center between the barrier ribs. The emitted light is concentrated at the center between barrier ribs. ribs.
Active control of optimization process in lens design by using Lagrange's undetermined multiplier method
Korean Journal of Optics and Photonics, volume 12, issue 2, 2001, Pages 109~114
Optical system has some optical and mechanical constraints. The constraints should be preserved in optimization of optical system. For the purpose, the constraints are combined with the merit function by using Lagrange's undetermined multipliers. We propose an active optimization control by using the fact that the errors of constraints are corrected with higher priority than the other errors of the merit function. In this control, the errors which have large contribution to the merit function are converted into constraints. At that time, if the errors are corrected at once, the optimization will be unstable because of their non-linearity. Hence we introduce a target rate which represents a fraction of error to be corrected, and the errors are corrected progressively. An optimization program was developed on the bases of the proposed active control, and applied to design a photographic lens system. By using the active control, we could get better results compared with conventional damped least squares method. ethod.
Precise correction of the copper emission spectra from the pulsed plasma jet
Korean Journal of Optics and Photonics, volume 12, issue 2, 2001, Pages 115~120
In the present study, we described in detail a precise correction method of the copper emission spectra obtained from a highpressure and high-temperature pulsed plasma-jet. The pulsed plasma-jet is initiated from an electro-thermal capillary discharge through a small orifice, and expanded rapidly into an atmosphere. In order to characterize the plasma, fundamental measurements such as the plasma excitation temperature or electron number density are essential. However those spectral lines which are directly related to the excitation temperature or electron number density may be distorted by the spectral response of the optical instruments used. Therefore, in this paper, we discuss some efforts to derive precise correction methods of the copper emission spectra obtained from the pulsed plasma-jet. a-jet.
system performance with different fiber structures in Raman ampliffer
Korean Journal of Optics and Photonics, volume 12, issue 2, 2001, Pages 121~128
We examine the performance of a Raman amplifier as a function of fiber structure with respect to amplifier gain and double Rayleigh crosstalk penalty. Variations on fiber core radius or index affect both the Raman gain efficiency and Rayleigh backscattering. Contrary to the common concept, the penalty from the doubly amplified Rayleigh scattering could exceed the benefits of higher gain efficiency of small effective area fibers. Appropriate fiber designing parameters are required to increase Raman amplifier efficiency without system penalties. lties.

Korean Journal of Optics and Photonics, volume 12, issue 2, 2001, Pages 129~134
Novel supervisory system for WDM transmission link using conventional optical time domain reflectometry was presented. By modifying the structure of erbuim doped fiber amplifier to support bi-directional transmission at arDR pulse wavelength and launching the optical pulse into transmission link in the opposite direction of data signal propagation to avoid the distortion by cross-gain modulation, it is possible to monitor the WDM link in service. To prove the validity of proposed scheme, the supervision result of 2.5 Gbps
8 channel WDM 320 km transmission system in service by arDR was presented. And power penalty due to monitoring was measured as smaller than 0.3 dB. .3 dB.
Optical pulse parameter analysis of gain switched InGaAIP FP LD at 650 nm wavelegth and its characteristic in comparison with CW operation
Korean Journal of Optics and Photonics, volume 12, issue 2, 2001, Pages 135~142
Recently, plastic optical fiber draws a lot of attention as a new transmission medium for local area network (LAN) and home network applications. As PMMA based GI-POF (Graded Index Plastic Optical Fiber) has very low loss at about 500 nm and 650 nm wavelengths, it is very important to have a compact ultra short optical pulse source at these wavelength windows. In this paper, we have investigated detailed characteristics of gain switched laser system by using a commercially available low cost RF devices and an InGaAlP Fabry Perot semiconductor laser operating at 650 nm wavelength. The shortest optical 'pulse obtained was 33 psec with 1 GHz repetition rate. Depending on the DC bias current and the modulation frequency, the FWHM and the pulse energy of the gain switched pulses show 33.3-82.8 psec and 0.97-9.69 pI respectively. Also, the spectral bandwidths for CW and gain switched operations are 0.44 nm and 1.50 nm. We believe that these results are quite useful for high bit rate optical transmission applications with PMMA based plastic optical fibers in addition to estimate properties of ultra fast optical components and electro-optic devices. vices.
Intracavity frequency doubling of a tunable Ti:Sapphire laser using a lithium triborate
Korean Journal of Optics and Photonics, volume 12, issue 2, 2001, Pages 143~149
We performed the intracavity frequency-doubling of a tunable continuous-wave Ti:sapphire laser using a lithium triborate
crystal. For an efficient intracavity frequency-doubling, we measured the spectral and the angular bandwidth about the
-direction of LBO crystal. The measured values at a fundamental wavelength of 800 nm were 1.54 nm.cm and 3.8 mrad.cm, respectively. As a result of an intracavity frequency-doubling, we obtained the second-harmonic generation output power of 5.3 mW at 400 nm with the full width at half maximum(FWHM) of 0.089 nm from the fundamental output power of 185 mW at 800 nm. The frequency-doubled output was tuned from 397 nm to 403 nm.403 nm.
