  1. MIT, Harvard Scientists Cool Three-Atom Molecule To Near Absolute Zero

    Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers have successfully cooled a triatomic molecule to near absolute zero for the first time. The feat could prove useful in building quantum computers and observing chemistry reactions in greater detail.

  2. Lightwave Logic Achieves High-Speed Modulation Enabling 25Gbps In An All-Organic Polymer Ridge Waveguide Modulator Prototype

    Lightwave Logic, Inc. (OTCQB: LWLG), a technology company focused on the development of Next Generation Photonic Devices and Non-Linear Optical Polymer Materials Systems for applications in high-speed fiber-optic data communications and telecommunications, announced today it has achieved bandwidth suitable for 25Gbps data rates in an all-organic polymer ridge waveguide intensity modulator prototype.

  3. Berkeley Lab Scientists Discover New Atomically Layered, Thin Magnet

    It may not seem like a material as thin as an atom could hide any surprises, but a research team led by scientists at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) discovered an unexpected magnetic property in a two-dimensional material.

  4. Novel Designs For Interference Microscopy Objectives Earn Rudolf Kingslake Medal

    Two researchers from Zygo Corporation are recipients of the Rudolf Kingslake Medal and Prize for 2016. The award is presented annually for the most noteworthy original paper published in the journal Optical Engineering by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics.

  5. New Rotary Air Bearing Series Achieve High Precision In Any Orientation

    PI (Physik Instrumente), a leader in precision motion control solutions, announces the new A-62x PIglide series of rotary air bearing stages. Air-bearings have no rolling or sliding elements and deliver frictionless, non-contact motion, resulting in negligible reversal error, better straightness, wobble, eccentricity and velocity stability – ideal prerequisites for high-end industrial applications such as inspection, metrology, calibration, and scanning.

  6. Reflex Photonics LightABLE Embedded Transceivers Demonstrate Their Ruggedness With Successful Accelerated Life Testing

    A group of modules from the LightABLE LH product series were submitted to a “Lifetime Test” against MIL-STD-883J, method 1005, cond. D, June 2013. The test is conducted at a case temperature of 100 °C, 15 °C more than the recommended maximum operating temperature.

  7. Fluctuations In Optical “Noise” Used To Track Hidden Objects

    A new remote sensing method devised by researchers at the University of Central Florida (UCF) using fluctuations in optical "noise" could one day complement existing technologies to track hidden objects, such as Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR).

  8. Chip-Based Nanoscopy: Microscopy In HD Quality

    Physicists at Bielefeld University and tThe Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø have developed a photonic chip that makes it possible to carry out superresolution light microscopy, also called ‘nanoscopy’, with conventional microscopes.

  9. Researchers Develop Eco-Friendly, 4-In-1 Catalyst

    Brown University researchers have developed a new composite catalyst that can perform four separate chemical reactions in sequential order and in one container to produce compounds useful in making a wide range of pharmaceutical products.

  10. A*STAR Research Model Enables Simultaneous Electrical And Optical Simulation Inside Modulator

    Scientists working at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) in Singapore have developed and tested a simulation model that allows simultaneous electrical-optical interaction inside an optical modulator — an electro-optical device that modifies light by applying electrical pulses.
