  1. Finisar Demonstrates VCSEL And Diffractive Optics Technology For 3D Sensing Applications

    Finisar (NASDAQ:FNSR), a world leader in optical communication modules and 3D Sensing VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser) technology, today announced its participation at Sensors Expo with several demonstrations and product displays.

  2. Superconducting Vortices Quantize Ordinary Metal

    Russian researchers together with their French colleagues discovered that a genuine feature of superconductors — quantum Abrikosov vortices of supercurrent — can also exist in an ordinary nonsuperconducting metal put into contact with a superconductor.

  3. FLIR Releases Starter Thermal Imaging Dataset for Machine Learning Advanced Driver Assistance Development

    FLIR Systems, Inc. today announced the availability of its open-source machine learning thermal dataset for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and self-driving vehicle researchers, developers, and auto manufacturers, featuring a compilation of more than 10,000 annotated thermal images of day and nighttime scenarios.

  4. New Line of Differential Pyroelectric Detectors

    For better implementation in existing systems, LASER COMPONENTS now offers its innovative LD21xx series of Differential Pyros as a Diff|2 version with a classic 3-pin housing. Like with the 4-pin models, the charge carriers on the top and bottom of the chip are amplified separately, which leads to a 50% improvement of the signal-to-noise ratio. The difference of the new Diff|2 (LD2120) detectors is that both signals are fed into a differential amplifier within the housing. Thus, the outward design of the component matches the familiar appearance with single supply, ground and a single output pin.

  5. Researchers Solve Major Challenge In Mass Production Of Low-Cost Solar Cells

    An international team of university researchers today reports solving a major fabrication challenge for perovskite cells — the intriguing potential challengers to silicon-based solar cells.

  6. Super-Resolution Imaging Reveals Mechanism Of GLUT1 Clustering

    Glucose is the primary source of energy and substrate for cells, and its uptake through the cell plasma membrane is largely dependent on the glucose transport (GLUT) family.

  7. When Fluid Flows Almost As Fast As Light – With Quantum Rotation

    Quark-gluon plasma is formed as a result of high energy collisions of heavy ions. After a collision, for a dozen or so yoctoseconds (that's 10-24 seconds!), this most perfect of all known fluids undergoes rapid hydrodynamic expansion with velocities close to the velocity of light.

  8. Graphene Assembled Film Shows Higher Thermal Conductivity Than Graphite Film

    Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have developed a graphene assembled film that has over 60 percent higher thermal conductivity than graphite film – despite the fact that graphite simply consists of many layers of graphene.

  9. Miniaturized Infrared Cameras Take Colored Photos Of The Eye

    Look into one's eye and you might be able to see their soul. Or at least you can see signs of a stroke or diabetes. By looking at the blood vessels in the eyes, doctors can tell a lot about a person's health.

  10. Turning Silicon Photonics Into A New Competitive Asset For The Electronics Industry

    VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, together with Tampere University of Technology (TUT), accelerates the development and commercialisation of silicon photonics products as part of the renewal of the Finnish electronics industry.
