  1. Three's A Charm: NIST Detectors Reveal Entangled Photon Triplets
    9/14/2014

    Researchers at the University of Waterloo in Canada have directly entangled three photons in the most technologically useful state for the first time, thanks in part to superfast, super-efficient single-photon detectors developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

  2. Vishay Intertechnology Automotive-Grade PIN Photodiodes Deliver High Reverse Light Current To 9.5 µA
    9/11/2014

    Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. is broadening its optoelectronics portfolio with the introduction of two new automotive-grade high-speed silicon PIN photodiodes in clear- and black-epoxy 1206 surface-mount packages measuring 4 mm by 2 mm by 1.05 mm.

  3. Graphene Paints A Corrosion-Free Future
    9/11/2014

    A thin layer of graphene paint can make impermeable and chemically resistant coatings which could be used for packaging to keep food fresh for longer and protect metal structures against corrosion, new findings from The University of Manchester show.

  4. Perfect Focus Through Thick Layers May Bring Better Vision To Medicine
    9/11/2014

    Zooming in on diseased tissue or scanning fragile biological samples are essential tools in medicine and biological research, but this often requires peering through layers of tissue and other materials that can blur and distort the image.

  5. Mass Spectroscopy Technique Used Directly On Blood Samples Could Lead To Quicker Use Of Correct Antibiotics
    9/11/2014

    A mass spectroscopy technique able to identify bacterial infections within minutes could lead to quicker administering of the correct treatment, a study presented at the American Society for Microbiology’s annual ICAAC meeting in Washington, DC, found. By John Otrompke

  6. Manufacturing A More Accurate Bioimaging Protein
    9/10/2014

    Using certain cells lines, scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum München research center in Germany have found a way to manufacture the bioimaging protein Amrose. The novel approach provided the cells with the right materials and then let them formulate into the complex molecule independently.

  7. New Autofluorescence Device Tracks Wound Infections
    9/10/2014

    The clinical evaluation of chronic wounds has long suffered from subjective bias. A new device, however, may make invisible bacteria detectable without lab tests or other interventions.

  8. Leti And LUCIOM Focusing On High-Data-Rate Bidirectional Transceivers For Enriched LiFi Applications
    9/10/2014

    CEA-Leti and LUCIOM, which develops visible-light communication using light-emitting diodes (LEDs), have launched a project to develop high-data-rate LiFi transceivers.

  9. Custom Sensors And Complex Systems Allow For Competitive Advantages For OEM Device Manufacturers
