  1. Carl Zeiss Launches Twin-Scanner Multiphoton Microscope
    Zeiss has overcome the challenges of imaging deep inside living tissues with the launch of the LSM 7 MP, a purpose-built multiphoton laser scanning microscope that, for the first time, incorporates two separate scanners.
  2. Ultra Smooth Optics From Optical Surfaces Enhance Space Observation
    Optical Surfaces Ltd. is a leading manufacturer of high precision optics for ground telescope and satellite-based space observation systems.
  3. A New Twist: Silicon Nanoantenna Launched Light

    The team of physicists from the University ITMO, MIPT and the University of Texas at Austin has developed a device unusual nanoantenna that can scatter light in the desired direction, depending on the intensity of the incident radiation.

  4. DCR Issues Initial Public Rating for OCLI
    Duff & Phelps Credit Rating Co. (DCR) has assigned a 'BBB' (Triple-B) initial public rating to the senior notes of Optical Coating Laboratory Inc.
  5. X-Ray Laser Imaging Advances To Nanometer Scale

    Using an X-ray laser to create diffraction patterns, scientists were recently able to visualize individual carboxysomes without crystallizing them. At about 115 nanometers, carboxysomes are the smallest biological specimen studied by an X-ray laser to date.

    Abrisa Technologies chemically strengthens thin glass per ASTM 1422 and tests per ASTM C 158.
  7. Two Nanostructures Are Better Than One
    Imagine using minuscule structures the size of molecules to harvest sunlight and convert it into electricity. Or employing the same structures to store hydrogen fuel so that it fits into a car’s gas tank
  8. NIST Team Proves ‘Spooky Action At A Distance’ Is Really Real

    Einstein was wrong about at least one thing: There are, in fact, “spooky actions at a distance,” as now proven by researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

  9. Neurophotonics To Debut At SPIE Photonics Europe 2014

    SPIE Photonics Europe will return to Brussels 14-17 April 2014, drawing nearly 2,000 leading optics and photonics researchers and innovators for 18 technical conferences on the latest research developments and industry news.

  10. Terahertz Imaging Goes The Distance
    Terahertz (THz) radiation, or far-infrared light, is potentially very useful for security applications, as it can penetrate clothing and other materials to provide images of concealed weapons, drugs, or other objects
