  1. U.S. House of Representatives Approves Self-Driving Car Bill

    The United States House of Representatives has unanimously approved a key bill that aims to set the regulatory framework for self-driving vehicles.

  2. UK Scientists Invent Camera That Can 'See Through' Human Body

    Scientists at the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University, through the Proteus Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration, have developed a new camera that can image individual photons emanating from fiber optic medical instruments inside the human body.

  3. Scientists Create Nanophotonic Device For Enhanced Single Cell-Based Sensing

    Scientists at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem have successfully demonstrated a fully-integrated nanoscale photonic device that can analyze a single fluorescent bacterial cell. Such a unique system could result in the creation of on-chip sensors with the capability of analyzing cells and chemicals in real-time.

  4. Quasi 2D Metasurface Coating Allows Waveguides To Be Smaller

    Researchers at Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) have developed a two-layer coating thin enough to be considered two-dimensional, which could allow further miniaturization of dielectric waveguides.

  5. Water-Repellent Nanosheet Wrapper Enhances Biological Microscopy

    Japanese scientists have developed a unique water-repellent nanomaterial that can be wrapped around biological tissue to visualize high-quality images for a longer period of time.

  6. 'Optical Wells' For Photonic Bose-Einstein Condensate Enable Quantum Computing

    Researchers at the Institute of Applied Physics at the University of Bonn have devised a highly low-loss structure where photonic Bose-Einstein condensate flow through and in between so-called optical hollows or wells. This first-of-its kind structure could become an integral component in future quantum circuits.

  7. Ultra-Thin Diselenides Could Supplant Silicon In Next-Generation Electronics

    Layered two-dimensional materials that are as efficient, but thinner than, silicon semiconductors, could power future electronic circuits and devices, according to Stanford researchers.

  8. Scientists Introduce New Light Coupling Techniques To Improve Sensitivity Of Optical Resonators

    Two independent teams of scientists have developed different alternative schemes to couple modes of light and make them coalesce to enhance optical resonators and make them much more sensitive compared to conventional sensing devices.

  9. China Launches World's First Commercial 'Unhackable' Quantum Network

    China is set to roll out later this month the pilot phase of the Jinan Project, a key part of what will become the first "unhackable" quantum communications network deployed commercially in the world.

  10. Ed White Appointed Chair Of National Photonics Initiative Steering Committee

    The National Photonics Initiative (NPI) has named Edward (“Ed”) White, the current Corporate Outreach Executive and head of the Test, Assembly and Packaging business for Rochester, NY-based AIM Photonics, as the new chair of the NPI Steering Committee.
