U.S. Air Force Aims To Deploy Laser-Armed Fighter Jets By 2021 The United States Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), through its Self-protect High Energy Laser Demonstrator (SHiELD) program, has awarded Lockheed Martin a $26.3 million contract to design, develop and produce a high-power fiber laser mounted on a tactical fighter jet by 2021.  Continue Reading...
Princeton, Penn State Researchers Create Diode Laser From Hybrid Perovskite Material
Princeton, Penn State Researchers Create Diode Laser From Hybrid Perovskite Material Scientists at Pennsylvania State University and Princeton University have created a diode laser from hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites – materials that have garnered attention due to their light emitting properties, useful in optoelectronic devices and solar cells.  Continue Reading...
Ultrafast Pulses Modulate Circadian Rhythm And Blues
Ultrafast Pulses Modulate Circadian Rhythm And Blues Manipulating the spectral components of ultrafast, near-infrared pulses of light can influence neural activity, paving the way for more effective treatments of mood and circadian rhythm sleep disorders, according to a team of researchers at the University of Illinois.  Continue Reading...
Israeli Researchers Successfully Hide Optical Chip Under ‘Cloak Of Invisibility’
Israeli Researchers Successfully Hide Optical Chip Under ‘Cloak Of Invisibility’ Scientists at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) are proposing a new method to obscure an optical chip by bending light around the object. This could be achieved by manipulating waves in the near field region (such as surface plasmons) of a metamaterial surface (a metasurface) on an integrated photonic structure.  Continue Reading...
MIT Researchers Use Chalcogenides To Stretch And Integrate Photonic Devices
MIT Researchers Use Chalcogenides To Stretch And Integrate Photonic Devices Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are using chalcogenide glasses to produce flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) that can stretch or conform to the shape of an object or structure without damage, and to better integrate two-dimensional (2D) materials with conventional semiconductor circuits.  Continue Reading...
Ford's Argo AI Buys LiDAR Startup Princeton Lightwave
Ford's Argo AI Buys LiDAR Startup Princeton Lightwave Ford-controlled Argo AI has acquired New Jersey-based Princeton Lightwave, a developer of LiDAR (light detection and ranging) cameras and sensors for autonomous driving vehicles, for an undisclosed amount.  Continue Reading...
Fastest Attosecond Laser Spectroscopy Sees Electrons In Slow Motion
Fastest Attosecond Laser Spectroscopy Sees Electrons In Slow Motion Researchers at ETH Zurich have generated the world's shortest X-ray laser pulse with a duration of only 43 attoseconds – fast enough to observe electrons in slow motion during chemical reactions.  Continue Reading...
