This article explores the use of a SnapShot imager in fluorescence imaging via microscope for the very first time. Utilizing the latest imaging sensor, the Snapshot imager is both compact and attachable via C-mount to any commercially available light microscope. Using this setup, fluorescence hypercubes of several cells were generated, containing both spatial and spectral information. The fluorescence images were acquired with one shot operation for all the emission range from visible to near infrared (VIS-IR). The paper will present the hypercubes obtained images from example tissues (475-630nm). This study demonstrates the potential of application in cell biology or biomedical applications for real time monitoring.
Demand for I/O bandwidth has increased as logic chip compute power and memory chip storage capacity has grown. Silicon (SI) photonics is a promising technology for delivering a massive terabyte-per-second I/O aggregate bandwidth at the chip level, especially for applications requiring long interconnect distances.
When you pass a magnet over the surface of ferrofluids, it begins to reach out with its gooey, spikey arms. A team of researchers at Juniata College is using a Phantom high-speed camera to study its unique, magnetic particles that have vast implications for future lab-on-a-chip devices. The camera helps them to see these too-small, too-fast reactions and capture their nanoscale behaviors.
Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, involves extremely high thermal gradients that can sometimes induce stress and deformation in the materials. High-speed infrared imaging of this Direct Medal Laser Sintering (DMLS) process on stainless steel has been used to better understand and visualize these thermal transfers.

Efficiency in nature’s biomolecular processes, such as photosynthesis, is not wholly explained by conventional theory. The EU-funded PAPETS project explored quantum effects to better understand these processes, recently leading to further insights into the possibilities for quantum computation.
The U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) is proposing to spend $66 million on a program to develop and deploy unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) that fire lasers at intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) shortly after takeoff, or during their boost phase of flight, when they are most vulnerable.
Researchers from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the CAS (IOCB Prague), Institute of Physics of the CAS (IP CAS) and Palacký University Olomouc demonstrated for the first time a single molecule piezoelectric effect.
Quantum entanglement is a key feature of a quantum computer. Yet, how can we verify that a quantum computer indeed incorporates a large-scale entanglement? Using conventional methods is hard since they require a large number of repeated measurements.
