  1. SCHOTT Introduces FLEXINITY™: Structured Glass Breakthrough To Enable Smaller Electronics

    SCHOTT is introducing a new, innovative portfolio of structured glass substrates that offers highly accurate and versatile features: FLEXINITY™. Structured thin or ultra-thin glass wafers are used as a substrate for sensors, batteries, and diagnostic technology. The breakthrough will enable new applications and further miniaturization of electronics through thinner glass wafers and structures that are more precise. The technology offers the lowest structuring radius of just 150 micrometers (μm) and a feature size tolerance lower than ± 25 μm.

  2. Precision In Medical Treatments: SCHOTT Highlights New Range Of Laser Delivery Solutions At Photonics West

    At this year’s Photonics West, SCHOTT will present its broad range of capabilities for use of laser delivery technology in medical applications. High quality glass fibers, rods, diffusers and connectors complemented with engineering services help manufacturers of medical devices to deliver laser beams exactly to the point or area where they are needed. The company’s booth 1207 can be found in hall B at Photonics West 2018, Jan. 27 – Feb. 1.

  3. USTC Realizes Strong Indirect Coupling In Distant Nanomechanical Resonators

    New progress in graphene-based nanomechanical resonator systems has been achieved in Key Laboratory of Quantum Information and Synergetic Innovation Center of Quantum Information & Quantum Physics of USTC.

  4. OIDA Workshop On Scalable Integrated Photonics For 5G And Sensors

    Fifth generation (5G) wireless and sensors are introducing a wide range of new applications that will depend on performance enhancements across multiple dimensions, including low latency, high capacity, and enhanced resilience.

  5. Flexing For The Next Silicon Wave

    A strategy that uses a screen-printed aluminium circuit to make silicon solar cells extremely flexible could enable them to become portable power sources. Developed by KAUST, such power sources could help to satisfy the growing demand for wearable and implantable devices, foldable displays and vehicle-integrated solar panels.  

  6. New Catalog For Alignment Of Optics And SiP: See Live Demo At Photonics West

    A new catalog on fast automated alignment solutions for silicon photonics and optical components will be available from PI, just in time for this year’s SPIE Photonics West conference. The catalog highlights award-winning multi-axis, parallel alignment systems for industrial requirements where speed is critical and accuracy needs to be at the nanoscale – including wafer-level testing and component packaging.

  7. Penn Engineering Research Gives Optical Switches The ‘Contrast’ Of Electronic Transistors

    Current computer systems represent bits of information — the 1’s and 0’s of binary code — with electricity. Circuit elements, such as transistors, operate on these electric signals, producing outputs that are dependent on their inputs.

  8. New Algorithm For Simulating The Structure Of Quantum Systems On A Quantum Photonic Chip

    An international collaboration of quantum physicists from the University of Bristol, Microsoft, Google, Imperial College, Max Planck Institute, and the Sun Yat-sen University have introduced a new algorithm to solve the energy structure of quantum systems on quantum computers.

  9. Toshiba Imaging To Introduce Ultra-Compact, Full HD Video Camera With USB 3.0 At 2018 SPIE BiOS & SPIE Photonics West

    Toshiba America Information Systems’  (TAIS) Imaging Systems Division introduces the JCS-HR5U, an ultra-compact (approx. 1.75” x 1.75” x 3”), CMOS HD video camera designed especially for clinical microscopy and scientific imaging.  The single-piece, full 1920  x 1080 high-definition video camera simultaneously displays through dual HDMI® and USB 3.0 outputs to both a monitor and PC in real-time, full motion 60 frames per second (fps), allowing live view and convenient image capture and video streaming through a PC.

  10. Injector Gun, Cryomodule Delivered For SLAC's X-Ray Laser Upgrade

    The injector gun and first cryomodule for Linac Coherent Light Source II (LCLS-II) — one of the most advanced superconducting laser projects in the world and the only one in the U.S. — have arrived at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in Menlo Park, California.
