    Recently, at the 2015 International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), nanoelectronics research center imec, in collaboration with Tyndall National Institute, the University of Leuven (KULeuven) and the Ghent University, demonstrated a 4x20Gb/s wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) hybrid CMOS silicon photonics transceiver, paving the way to cost-effective, high-density single-mode optical fiber links.

  3. Moving Molecules Write Letters
    2/26/2015

    High performance materials for gas storage, thermal insulators or nanomachines need a thorough understanding of the behavior of the material down to the molecular level.

  4. New Research Signals Big Future For Quantum Radar
    2/26/2015

    The new breed of radar is a hybrid system that uses quantum correlation between microwave and optical beams to detect objects of low reflectivity such as cancer cells or aircraft with a stealth capability.

  5. SLAC-Led Research Team Bends Highly Energetic Electron Beam With Crystal
    2/25/2015

    An international team of researchers working at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory has demonstrated that a bent silicon crystal can bend the paths of focused, very energetic electron beams much more than magnets used today.

  6. Potomac Photonics Announces FAST TRACK Program To Fabricate Custom Microfluidic Devices
    2/25/2015

    Potomac Photonics, a leader in micro-fabrication for the medical device and biotech industries, announces FAST TRACK, a new manufacturing process to quickly and economically build complete custom microfluidic devices

  7. Flexible Nanosensors For Wearable Devices
    2/25/2015

    A new method developed at the Institute of Optoelectronics Systems and Microtechnology (ISOM) from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) will enable the fabrication of optical nanosensors capable of sticking on uneven surfaces and biological surfaces like human skin.

  8. Rapid Data Transfer Thanks To Quantum Physics
    2/25/2015

    RUB engineers have developed a new concept for accelerating data transfer in server farms. To this end, the team at the Chair of Photonics and Terahertz Technology applies a quantum-mechanical variable, i.e. the spin. RUBIN, the science magazine published by the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, reports on how researchers optimise so-called spin lasers for data transfer.

  9. New Nanowire Structure Absorbs Light Efficiently
    2/25/2015

    Researchers at Aalto University have developed a new method to implement different types of nanowires side-by-side into a single array on a single substrate.

  10. Researchers Enable Solar Cells To Use More Sunlight
    2/25/2015

    Scientists of the University of Luxembourg and of the Japanese electronics company TDK report progress in photovoltaic research: they have improved a component that will enable solar cells to use more energy of the sun and thus create a higher current.
