  1. Focus: Twisted Light In A Photonic Chip

    Light waves capable of storing quantum information can propagate through a photonic chip waveguide and potentially be used for on-chip computation.

  2. Laser Components Announcing MIRTHE+ Membership

    LASER COMPONENTS USA, a specialized provider of laser and optoelectronic components in the US and Canada, is proud to announce an active membership with the MIRTHE+ Photonics Sensing Center.

  3. Connecting Infrared Research To Industry

    LASER COMPONENTS USA, a specialized provider of laser and optoelectronic components in the US and Canada, is pleased to announce the 6th International WORKshop on Infrared Technologies, a continuation of the alternating event in Germany and the US. Thanks to the support of MIRTHE+ Photonics Sensing Center, a leading organization focused on connecting research and industry, the event will take place at Princeton University, NJ, October 28 – 30, 2019.

  4. Mirrorcle Laser-Cuts Ribbon On Cleanroom Facility For Volume MEMS Mirror Production

    In a ribbon cutting ceremony Mirrorcle Technologies inaugurated its new cleanroom space at the company’s Richmond, CA headquarters. Reflecting the company’s core competency of reliable optical beam-steering, the ribbon was cut by one of company’s latest products – a laser beam Scan Module which features a powerful 1W, blue (450nm) laser that was developed for the emerging dynamic solid-state lighting (phosphor lighting) market.

  5. Molecularly Thin Hybrid Perovskite For Advanced Optoelectronic Applications

    NUS scientists have discovered that the light emission properties of molecularly thin two-dimensional (2-D) hybrid perovskite can be tuned in a highly reversible way for ultrathin optoelectronic applications.

  6. Form-Fitting, Nanoscale Sensors Now Make Sense

    What if a sensor sensing a thing could be part of the thing itself? Rice University engineers believe they have a two-dimensional solution to do just that.

  7. New X-Ray Imaging Approach Could Boost Nanoscale Resolution For Advanced Photon Source Upgrade

    A long-standing problem in optics holds that an improved resolution in imaging is offset by a loss in the depth of focus.

  8. Using Quantum Entanglement To Study Proteins

    For the first time, a University of Michigan chemist has used quantum entanglement to examine protein structures, a process that requires only a very small number of photons of light.

  9. PG&O® Introduces Finished Infrared Optics For Biomedical, Military, And Industrial Applications

    Company will showcase finished infrared (IR) optical components and thin film filters for biomedical, industrial, and defense applications at SPIE BiOS booth #8346 and Photonics West booth #4883, Feb. 2 - 7, 2019, Moscone Center, San Francisco.

  10. First Light For SPECULOOS

    The SPECULOOS Southern Observatory (SSO) has been successfully installed at the Paranal Observatory and has obtained its first engineering and calibration images — a process known as first light. After finishing this commissioning phase, this new array of planet-hunting telescopes will begin scientific operations, starting in earnest in January 2019.
