  1. An Important Step Towards Completely Secure Quantum Communication Networks

    The quest for a secure information network is on. Researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen, have recently succeeded in boosting the storage time of quantum information, using a small glass container filled with room temperature atoms, taking an important step towards a secure quantum encoded distribution network.

  2. Quantum Computing At Scale: Australian Scientists Achieve Compact, Sensitive Qubit Readout

    Professor Michelle Simmons’ team at UNSW Sydney has demonstrated a compact sensor for accessing information stored in the electrons of individual atoms – a breakthrough that brings us one step closer to scalable quantum computing in silicon.

  3. Shedding A New Light On Optical Trapping And Tweezing

    When you shine a beam of light on your hand, you don’t feel much, except for a little bit of heat generated by the beam.

  4. Photonic Radiation Sensors Survive Huge Doses Undamaged

    Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have published landmark test results that suggest a promising class of sensors can be used in high-radiation environments and to advance important medical, industrial and research applications.

  5. Light-Induced Changes In Photosensory Proteins

    Phytochromes are proteins, which are responsible for converting light into cellular information. Found in plants, fungi and bacteria, these photoreceptors use light to regulate fundamental physiological processes.

  6. Light Emitting Diode To Remain The Most Preferred Aesthetic Lasers And Energy Devices Product Type; Lasers To Push Global Revenues Through 2026

    Of the different types of aesthetic lasers and energy devices available in the global market, lasers will continue to dominate physician/surgeon as well as patient preference in the coming years.

  7. Researchers Map Light And Sound Wave Interactions In Optical Fibers

    Optical fibers make the internet happen. They are fine threads of glass, as thin as a human hair, produced to transmit light.

  8. FAU Researchers Develop A Process To Measure Nanorods Quickly And Accurately

    Process engineers at FAU have developed a method which allows the size and shape of nanoparticles in dispersions to be determined considerably quicker than ever before.

  9. Marktech Optoelectronics Introduces InGaAs/InP Broadband PIN Photodiodes

    Marktech Optoelectronics, Inc. (Marktech), a privately-held, veteran-owned, leading designer and manufacturer of standard and custom optoelectronics components and assemblies, including UV, visible (VIS), near-infrared (NIR), and short-wave infrared (SWIR) emitters, detectors, InP epiwafers and other materials, today announced the global market introduction of the Model MTPD1346D-xx series, a family of InGaAs/InP broadband PIN photodiodes.

  10. Paving The Way: An Accelerator On A Microchip

    Electrical engineers in the accelerator physics group at TU Darmstadt have developed a design for a laser-driven electron accelerator so small it could be produced on a silicon chip.
