The heliostat is composed by parabolic and free-form reflection surfaces, which is different from the traditional heliostat by merely using mirrors. The parabolic reflector is used to concentrate more power on the collector to improve the total power. The new design increases the average daily efficiency of daylighting system’s 2.94 times, and average daily power 25.7 times.

Wen-Hsuan Hsieh Award Candidate Passive Alignment High-Power Lasers to Polarization Maintaining Fibers by Dependence-Oriented Microlens

A new scheme of dependence-oriented microlens (DOM) employing automatic grinding and accurate positioning for passive alignment lasers coupled to polarization-maintaining-fibers is demonstrated with 83.4% coupling efficiency and 31.7-dB polarized extinction ratio. The unique advantage of the DOM is only aligning the DOM endface of fast-axis parallel to the laser-polarization axis.

XUAN-WEI LI Award Candidate Design of small displacement sensor based on high sensitivity total internal reflection interferometry

This paper designs a small displacement sensor based on highly sensitive total internal reflection (TIR) interferometry. The system consists of a plane mirror, and a high-sensitivity TIR heterodyne interferometer. A heterodyne light beam reflected by a plane mirror penetrates into a high-sensitivity TIR apparatus at an angle larger than a critical angle. A small displacement of the mirror causes the light beam incident on the TIR apparatus to be deflected, thereby inducing a phase difference variation of the light beam emerging from the TIR apparatus. The numerical simulation demonstrates that the sensitivity and the resolution of 0.6/m and 0.05m can be achieved.

Wei-Ming Huang Award Candidate Tunable liquid crystal microlens with cured electrode by inkjet printing

A tunable liquid crystal microlens with parabolic-shaped electrode was proposed. We use a new approach to fabricate a liquid crystal microlens with parabolic-shaped ITO electrode by using the hydrophilic confinement and inkjet printing. According to theoretical analysis, using a parabolic-shaped electrode can achieve the shortest focal length because of increasing the gradient of electric field in the LC layer and keeping a lower operating voltage.

Yu-Jen Wang Award Candidate A Polarizer-free Liquid Crystal Lens Exploiting an Embedded-multilayered Structure

Development of liquid crystal (LC) lenses toward large aperture sizes is limited by the power law. The lens power of LC lenses is inversely proportional to the square of aperture sizes. In this letter, we prove a polarizer-free LC lens emancipated from the power law by exploiting an embedded-multilayered structure. The potential applications are ophthalmic lens and wearable devices.

Yu-Chan Guan Award Candidate Precision Saturated Absorption Spectroscopy of Molecular Ions in the 3 – 4 um Band

We have built an instrument capable of measuring the ro-vibrational transitions of molecular ions with sub-MHz precision. A homemade single frequency, continuous-wave and widely tunable, mid-infrared optical parametric oscillator (OPO) was used. The tuning range of its idler wave was 3.2 to 4 μm and the idler power could reach 2 W at 3.6 μm. The molecular ions were produced in an extended negative glow discharge tube, which can produce high concentration of molecular ions at low pressure. Double modulation (amplitude modulation and concentration modulation) was employed to effectively increase the signal-to-noise ratio. To determine the absolute frequency of the idler wave, the pump wave was offset locked on the R(56) 32-0 a10 hyperfine component of 127I2, and the signal wave was locked on a GPS disciplined fiber optical frequency comb (OFC). Here, we introduce this instrument and demonstrate its performance by measuring the absolute frequencies of five transitions of H3+.
