  2. Improving The Femtosecond Ultrashort Pulse Laser
    11/20/2017

    MXenes, conductive materials widely used in many industries, now have one more promising application: helping lasers fire extremely short femtosecond pulses, which last just millionths of a billionth of a second.

  3. Photon Counting Camera LINCam Now Available From PicoQuant
    11/17/2017

    PicoQuant proudly announces the inclusion of the LINCam, a photon counting camera manufactured by Photonscore, to its line up of single photon sensitive detectors.

  4. Israeli Researchers Successfully Hide Optical Chip Under ‘Cloak Of Invisibility’
    11/16/2017

    Scientists at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) are proposing a new method to obscure an optical chip by bending light around the object. This could be achieved by manipulating waves in the near field region (such as surface plasmons) of a metamaterial surface (a metasurface) on an integrated photonic structure.

  5. Researchers Use Glass Microparticles To Enhance Solar Cell Efficiency
    11/16/2017

    Scientists from ITMO University have developed a new solar cell coating based on amorphous silicon that combines the features of an electrode and those of a light-trapping structure.
