  1. NeoPhotonics' 53 Gbaud Linear Optical Components For 400Gbps Data Center Applications

    NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE: NPTN), a leading designer and manufacturer of hybrid photonic integrated circuit based modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high speed communications networks, today announced its 53 Gbaud Linear Optical Component family, which includes  PAM4 capable optical components for 100G and 400G cloud data center and other client applications, including drivers and EML lasers in transmitters plus PIN photodetectors and TIAs in receivers.

  2. New High Precision Alignment Lasers With Small Beam Diameter

    LASER COMPONENTS presents two additions to its portfolio of high-precision alignment lasers: LT-PLM-635-01-C1 and LT-PLM-IRB-635-01-C1. At the exit point, the beams of these precision modules feature diameters of 1 mm and a squint angle of just 0.05 mrad, which equals 5/100 mm per meter distance from the target. With standard modules, the aberration from the center of the housing is considerably higher at 8.7 mm.

    Qioptiq, an Excelitas Technologies Company and global technology leader in delivering innovative optical and photonic solutions, introduces its new LINOS F-Theta-Ronar 265mm Lens for 1900-2000nm.

  4. LUCID Launches Industry’s Smallest GigE PoE Camera With 3.2 And 5 MP Sony Pregius CMOS

    LUCID Vision Labs, Inc., a new designer and manufacturer of unique and innovative industrial vision cameras, recently announced the series production of the first models of its new Phoenix camera family.

  5. MIPT Physicists Tune A Spin Diode

    A team of physicists at MIPT has offered a new design of a spin diode, placing the device between two kinds of antiferromagnetic materials. By adjusting the orientation of their antiferromagnetic axes, it is possible to change the resistance and the resonant frequency of the diode.

  6. Label-Free, Non-Destructive Tools To Detect Metabolic Changes Linked To Disease

    Metabolic changes in cells can occur at the earliest stages of disease. In most cases, knowledge of those signals is limited, since we usually detect disease only after it has done significant damage.

  7. Opportunities For Integrated Photonics-Related Partnerships During OFC 2018

    The American Institute for Manufacturing Integrated Photonics (AIM Photonics), led by the Department of Defense, announced today that researchers and leaders from the initiative plan to attend the internationally recognized Optical Fiber Communication (OFC) 2018 conference and exhibition March 11-15 in San Diego, California.

  8. Seeing Is Believing – Precision Atom Qubits Achieve Major Milestone

    The unique Australian approach of creating quantum bits from precisely positioned individual atoms in silicon is reaping major rewards, with UNSW Sydney-led scientists showing for the first time that they can make two of these atom qubits “talk” to each other.

  9. Researchers Reshape The Energy Landscape Of Phonons In Nanocrystals
  10. New Transistor Concept, Solar Cell Included

    ICN2 researchers have developed a novel concept in transistor technology: a two-in-one power source plus transistor device that runs on solar energy. Published in Advanced Functional Materials and currently trending in the Wiley-VCH “Hot Topics” list, lead author Amador Pérez-Tomás is calling it the “solaristor”.
