  1. Supersensitive Nanodevice Could Detect Cancer Earlier

    Researchers at the University of Alabama at Huntsville (UAH) have developed a nanodevice that senses extremely low levels of cancer biomarkers. The advance may allow earlier detection of disease and be broadly applicable to many different disease biomarkers.  

  2. New, High-Speed EMCCD Cameras Provide Exceptional Low-Light Imaging Performance

    Princeton Instruments is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the ProEM-HS line of high-speed EMCCD cameras with patented eXcelon3 technology (X3) for low-light imaging and spectroscopy applications. This advanced back-illuminated EMCCD technology offers combination of high quantum efficiency (>95% QE), best fringe suppression in the near infrared and single-photon sensitivity.

  3. ‘Innovative Technologies Introduction Impacts Favorably The LED Packaging Materials Market’, Says Yole Développement

    The LED packaging industry is moving toward further cost reduction and new technologies including Flip Chip and Chip Scale Package (CSP), says Yole Développement (Yole) in its latest report on packaging for LED: LED Packaging Technology and Market Trends 2014.

  4. New Organic Semiconductor Material From Kiel

    Researchers of the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel (CAU), Germany, successfully integrated organic tin into semiconducting polymers (plastics) for the first time. Semiconducting polymers can be used, for example, for the absorption of sun light in solar cells.

  5. Predicting Landslides With Light

    Optical fiber sensors are used around the world to monitor the condition of difficult-to-access segments of infrastructure—such as the underbellies of bridges, the exterior walls of tunnels, the feet of dams, long pipelines and railways in remote rural areas.

  6. Physicists Create Lasers That Switch On And Off At World Record Speed

    Reporting in the journal Nature Physics, physicists from Imperial College London and the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, in Germany, used semiconductor nanowires made of zinc oxide and placed them on a silver surface to create ultra-fast lasers. By Gail Wilson

  7. ‘Skin-Like’ Photonic Device Monitors Cardiovascular Health

    Heart problems may now be monitored in real-time using a new high-resolution technology that is low-cost and virtually undetectable. These are only a few benefits of the novel advance from University of Illinois researchers.

  8. Philips To Spin Off Lighting, Focus On Healthcare

    Dutch conglomerate Royal Philips recently announced that it is splitting the company into two in order to prioritize high-margin healthcare products and services over lighting products that have been traditionally synonymous with its name.

  9. LightWorks Optical Systems Announces New Name As II-VI Optical Systems

    LightWorks Optical Systems, a wholly-owned subsidiary of II-VI Incorporated, is pleased to announce the launch of its new name and corporate identity as II-VI Optical Systems, in support of II-VI Inc.’s business unit and divisional restructuring effort.

  10. On The Road To Artificial Photosynthesis

    The excessive atmospheric carbon dioxide that is driving global climate change could be harnessed into a renewable energy technology that would be a win for both the environment and the economy.
