    Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and global leader in machine vision technology, is pleased to introduce its newest Genie Nano cameras with eight new monochrome and color models built around the industry’s best performing SONY image sensors.

  5. Extremely Small And Fast: Laser Ignites Hot Plasma
    9/18/2018

    When light pulses from an extremely powerful laser system are fired onto material samples, the electric field of the light rips the electrons off the atomic nuclei. For fractions of a second, a plasma is created.

  6. Sound Offers New Directions In Integrated Photonics
    9/17/2018

    Yale scientists have demonstrated a new method to control the behavior of light on a silicon chip — specifically, its direction — by using sound waves. This discovery appears Sept. 17 in the journal Nature Photonics.

  7. Researchers Managed To Prevent The Disappearing Of Quantum Information
    9/17/2018

    The properties of quantum mechanics can be utilised, for example, in technology and encrypting messages, but the disadvantage is the occasional disappearing of information. For the first time, a research group consisting of Finnish and Chinese scientists has found a way to fully control the information escaping the qubit.
