    At this week’s OFC 2015, the largest global conference and exposition for optical communications, nanoelectronics research center imec, its associated lab at Ghent University (Intec), and Stanford University have demonstrated a compact germanium (Ge) waveguide electro-absorption modulator (EAM) with a modulation bandwidth beyond 50GHz.

  3. Laser Research CO2 Optics For Mid-Range Cutting & Engraving Lasers
    3/25/2015

    Laser Research Optics has introduced a line of OEM quality CO2 lenses and mirrors for mid-range laser cutting and engraving systems. Suited for field-replacement, they are in-stock for next day delivery.

  4. Capturing Blur Free Images From Ultra High Speed Events
    3/25/2015

    The new generation SIR3 Series compact range camera from Specialised Imaging is lightweight and robust making it ideally suited for the harsh indoor and outdoor environments associated with ballistic proofing ground and industrial use.

  5. Building Shape Inspires New Material Discovery
    3/25/2015

    Physicists inspired by the radical shape of a Canberra building have created a new type of material which enables scientists to put a perfect bend in light.

  6. Diagnostics, Treatments For Cancer, Heart Surgery Advanced At SPIE Medical Imaging
    3/24/2015

    Improved computer-aided diagnostics (CAD) for detecting lung cancer got a push forward via a well-received Grand Challenge competition which culminated at the recent SPIE Medical Imaging symposium in Orlando, Florida.

  7. Infinera Introduces Two New Photonic Integrated Circuits To Support New Layer C And Layer T Network Model
    3/23/2015

    Infinera, provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, introduced two photonic integrated circuits (PICs) for new optical transport applications as scale and virtualization drive change in network architectures.

  8. Mirror Mounts For High Precision Optics
    3/23/2015

    Ultra-high precision optics are useless unless they are positioned with absolute precision and stress-free. To fulfil this need, Optical Surfaces Ltd designs and manufactures mounts specifically for use with parabolic, spherical and flat mirrors to optimize the optical performance of optical systems.

  9. Quantum Correlation Can Imply Causation
    3/23/2015

    Research from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo and the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics shows that in quantum mechanics, certain kinds of observations will let you distinguish whether there is a common cause or a cause-effect relation between two variables.

  10. Spatio-Temporal Isolation Of Attosecond Soft X-Ray Pulses In The Water Window
    3/20/2015

    In the recent study "Spatiotemporal isolation of attosecond pulses in the soft X-ray water window", published in Nature Communications by the Attoscience and Ultrafast Optics Group, led by ICREA Professor at ICFO Jens Biegert, the generation of isolated attosecond pulses at the carbon K-edge at 284 eV (4.4 nm), within the water window range, was achieved.
