  1. Graphene Harvests Solar Energy To Power ‘Electronic Skin’

    University of Glasgow researchers have developed a layer of graphene that can harvest sunlight to power 'electronic skin,' whose development holds much promise in the fields of prosthetics and robotics.

  2. Lockheed Martin Readies 60 kW Fiber Laser Weapon For U.S. Army

    Lockheed Martin says it is set to deliver a 60 kW fiber optic laser weapon to the U.S. Army, which intends to mount it atop tactical ground vehicles to neutralize enemy drones, rockets, and mortars.

  3. Li-Fi System 100 Times Faster Than Wi-Fi

    A new type of Li-Fi (Light Fidelity) optical wireless system being developed by students at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) Institute for Photonic Integration is up to 100 times faster than the best Wi-Fi connections available.

  4. X-Rays Create 3D Images Of A Microchip’s Interior

    It’s the first time a non-destructive method has clearly visualized the paths of a chip’s internal wiring (just 45 nanometres — 45 millionths of a millimetre — wide) and its 34-nanometre-high transistors without distortions or deformations.

  5. Ultrafast Recording Of Microstructural Alteration By Femtosecond Lasers

    Scientists at the University of Rochester have developed a scattered-light-based optical imaging technique to record, for the first time, the complete process by which a material's surface is transformed by laser beams to such extent that the materials exhibit new and useful properties. 

  6. Photonic Doping Makes Metamaterials Fabrication Easier

    University of Pennsylvania engineers have developed a new technique called photonic doping to design and more easily fabricate electromagnetic metamaterials.

  7. Researchers Produce First On-Chip Microwave Laser For Quantum Computers

    Researchers at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and its quantum research institute, QuTech, have demonstrated a first-of-its-kind on-chip microwave laser produced from a Josephson junction embedded in a superconducting microwave cavity.

  8. Physicists Entangle Single Photon With A Trillion Rubidium Atoms

    Scientists at the Quantum Memories Laboratory at the University of Warsaw have demonstrated multidimensional entanglement of a group of about one trillion atoms and a single photon. The entangled state allows enhanced storage of quantum memory and faster quantum information processing.

  9. Corrective Quartz Lens Achieves Unparalleled X-Ray Laser Focus

    Scientists report that custom-manufactured corrective quartz glasses fitted to a standard lens can focus X-ray beams to an unparalleled concentration, approaching the theoretical limit.

  10. Holographic Laser Enhances Nanophotonic Devices

    A new method to tune nanocavities using digital holography enables the researchers to program photonic circuits by switching them into and out of resonance.
