  1. When Semiconductors Stick Together, Materials Go Quantum

    A team of researchers led by the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has developed a simple method that could turn ordinary semiconducting materials into quantum machines – superthin devices marked by extraordinary electronic behavior.

  2. New Optical Imaging System Could Be Deployed To Find Tiny Tumors

    Many types of cancer could be more easily treated if they were detected at an earlier stage. MIT researchers have now developed an imaging system, named “DOLPHIN,” which could enable them to find tiny tumors, as small as a couple of hundred cells, deep within the body.

  3. Breakthrough Could Enable Infrared Cameras For Electronics, Self-Driving Cars

    There’s an entire world our eyes miss, hidden in the ranges of light wavelengths that human eyes can’t see. But infrared cameras can pick up the secret light emitted as plants photosynthesize, as cool stars burn and batteries get hot.

  4. Graphene Quantum Dots For Single Electron Transistors

    Scientists from the Higher School of Economics, Manchester University, the Ulsan National Institute of Science & Technology and the Korea Institute of Science and Technology have developed a novel technology, which combines the fabrication procedures of planar and vertical heterostructures in order to assemble graphene-based high-quality single-electron transistors.

  5. IDT Announces 64G Linear Modulator Driver Series For Coherent Applications

    Cloud and telecom operators continue to drive the demand for increased data rates. Coherent technology 100G/200G pluggable modules for telecom applications have had huge success in the last few years.


  6. Excelitas Technologies To Display Laser Solutions at LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA

    Excelitas Technologies Corp., a global technology leader delivering innovative, customized photonic solutions, will showcase several new high-performance laser technologies at LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA, including its broad range of products made available through the recent acquisitions of Research Electro Optics (REO) and Axsun Technologies.

  7. New Mad360™: Precision Rotational Positioning System

    The Mad360™ is a compact precision rotational stage. The rotational motion is bidirectional and continuous 360°. Minimum rotational steps of 1 milliradian and capable of speeds up to 20 rotations/second, the Mad360™ is a versatile motion control device.

  8. Light From An Exotic Crystal Semiconductor Could Lead To Better Solar Cells

    Scientists have found a new way to control light emitted by exotic crystal semiconductors, which could lead to more efficient solar cells and other advances in electronics, according to a Rutgers-led study in the journal Materials Today.

  9. The Random Anti-Laser

    The laser is the perfect light source: when being provided with energy, it generates light of a specific, well-defined colour. It is also possible, however, to create the exact opposite – an object that perfectly absorbs light of a particular colour and dissipates the energy almost completely.

  10. New Quantum Sensor Could Improve Cancer Treatment

    A new quantum sensor developed by researchers at the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) has proven it can outperform existing technologies and promises significant advancements in long-range 3D imaging and monitoring the success of cancer treatments.
