  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Researchers Use Quantum Entanglement To Detect Radio Waves

    Scientists have devised a new technique that uses quantum entanglement of a million rubidium atoms to detect weak radio waves as accurately as the most sensitive radio frequency magnetometers available.

  6. Light-Trapping Sensor Improves Spectroscopy By Leaps And Bounds

    A new light-trapping sensor fabricated by engineers at the University at Buffalo has been demonstrated to be capable of up to 1,000 times greater resolution than existing spectroscopy devices that detect minute amounts of substances.

  7. Researchers Create Beamsplitter For Polarizing Light At Terahertz Frequencies

    Researchers at Brown University and Osaka University have developed a technique to polarize light for terahertz waves using a new type of beamsplitter made from stacks of spaced metal plates. 

  8. Stackable Metamaterials Using Computer Chip Technology Make For Novel Retroreflector

    Engineers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have designed and fabricated a unique type of retroreflector built from stackable metamaterials using computer-chip manufacturing technologies, allowing them to be integrated into optoelectronic devices.

  9. Photodetector With Nanocavities Key To Smaller Optoelectronics

    Researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison (UW-Madison) and the University at Buffalo (UB) have developed a very thin yet high-performance photodetector consisting of nanocavities sandwiched between a single-crystalline germanium and a reflective layer of silver.

  10. Scanning Microwave Microscopy For Non-Destructive Imaging Of Silicon Nanostructures

    Academe and industry collaborators in Europe have developed a scanning microwave microscope capable of imaging three-dimensional, atom-sized components buried within silicon chips, making it one of the first devices to image and characterize, in a non-destructive way, those structures that are considered building blocks of quantum devices.
