    Fabrication effects in the optical performance of DOEs engraved with femtosecond lasers
    (SPIE, 2021-09-17) Soria García, Ángela; Fantova, Jorge; San Blas, Alejandro; Hoyo Muñoz, Jesús del; Sánchez Brea, Luis Miguel; Alda Serrano, Javier; Rodríguez González, Ainara; Olaizola Izquierdo, Santiago M.
    The development of DOEs fabrication techniques is continuously growing due to the wide range of industrial applications, such as beam manipulation or optical position encoders. In this work, we use Femtosecond laser direct writing to manufacture DOEs, which uses a simpler and more efficient way to fabricate amplitude binary masks. Also, we have analyzed the performance of the DOEs. The fabrication technique is validated since the experimental results are in accordance to numerical simulations.

    Vector diffractive optical element as a full-Stokes analyzer
    (Elsevier, 2023-03-29) Soria García, Ángela; del Hoyo Muñóz, Jesús; Sánchez Brea, Luis Miguel; Pastor Villarubia, Verónica; González Fernández, Verónica; Elshorbagy, Mahmoud Hamdy Mohamed; Alda, Javier
    The real-time characterization of the polarization state of a light beam is of importance for a variety of applications in Optics and Photonics. We have designed a device that includes a Vector Diffractive Optical Element (VDOE) to determine the polarization state of an incident light beam. The device is able to simultaneously evaluate the four Stokes parameters of the light under analysis. The VDOE is sectorized into several Fresnel zone plates, enabling a compact arrangement and facilitating optoelectronical integration. We have also developed a procedure to remove diffractive effects and systematic errors. From the simulated results, our device is able to identify any polarization incident state with an averaged uncertainty of 0.006%. Finally, we have experimentally verified the VDOE with non-ideal polarization elements to further validate and test our proposed design. The averaged uncertainty of our experimental realization is 3.33%.

    Fourier series diffractive lens with extended depth of focus
    (Elsevier, 2023-04-11) Soria García, Ángela; Sánchez Brea, Luis Miguel; Hoyo Muñoz, Jesús, del; Torcal Milla, Francisco José; Gómez Pedrero, José Antonio
    Angular diffractive lenses have been proven to achieve a narrow beam waist with a long depth of focus. We generalize these type of lenses by defining the angular distribution of the focal length as a Fourier series. The Fourier coefficients of the lens are optimized, using Particle Swarm Optimization algorithm, to minimize the beam width and increase its uniformity for a given depth of focus. In order to obtain a fast simulation during the optimization process, we used Chirp Z-transform algorithm. Finally, we performed an experimental verification of the results using a Spatial Light Modulator. The Fourier series diffractive lens presents a more uniform and narrower beam than previous angular lenses, in both simulations and experiments. These results may find applications in the design of contact and intraocular lenses with extended depth of focus, laser focusing and imaging systems.

    Permeable Diffractive Optical Elements for the real-time sensing of running fluids
    (2023-05) Pastor Villarrubia, Verónica; Soria García, Ángela; Del Hoyo Muñoz, Jesús; Sánchez Brea, Luis Miguel; Alda Serrano, Javier
    The real-time monitoring of physical and chemical parameters in running fluids is of importance for biomedical, biochemical, and environmental applications, such as the presence of biomarkers or chemomarkers, or the departure from some preset values of critical parameters. In this contribution we present a new generation of Permeable Diffractive Optical Elements (PDOE) based on photon sieves. In brief, the PDOE is made of passing holes properly placed on specific locations on a rigid surface. This arrangement makes PDOEs ideal to work with running fluids. Our PDOE is optimized maximizing the irradiance at is focal plane, maintaining an appropriate permeability ratio. The starting point is the classical Fresnel zone distribution. We have used two different optimization strategies to design a working PDOE: i) Particle Swarm Optimization has been applied to modify the distribution of holes on the PDOE simultaneously considering all of them; ii) an iterative minimization algorithm adding one hole at the time until filling the PDOE aperture. Both optimization algorithms generate focal spots that are compared to choose the design better suited for the proposed application. Once the PDOE is optimized and fabricated, the surface of the remaining rigid structure is nanostructured (for example using Laser Induced Periodic Surface Structures), or functionalized, to provide specific sensing capabilities. In addition, the PDOE is integrated within a pipe where the fluid under analysis circulates through. A proposal for the optoelectronic assembly of the device-including auxiliary optical elements, light sources, and detectors - is also presented in this contribution.
