New research efforts published in the journal Nature Communications have used the concepts of spatial state tomography to measure the detailed evolution of laser beam parameters as a collection of temporally, spectrally, and polarization-resolved spatial state density matrices. An in-depth understanding of the evolution of these laser features paves the way for more efficient optical technology.
The high-resolution property of atomic force microscopes enables this powerful tool to be ideal for the characterization of nanoparticles and nanomaterials due to providing qualitative and quantitative data on a range of physical properties.
Atomic force microscopy is a decent candidate as a characterization technique for energy research because it can locally examine nanoscale electrochemical processes.
Digital technological advancements have made laser additive manufacturing (LAM) a revolutionary technique for industrial production. This article will look at what LAM is and its increasing applications.
Atomic force microscopy can address many food quality analysis challenges owing to the excellent spatial resolution meaning species such as bacteria can be detected and local inhomogeneities in the food texture can be visualized.
The study of cells has been enhanced by data from cutting-edge electron microscopes for decades, and electron microscopy will likely remain important in cells well into the future.
The agricultural sector is turning to photonics to harvest productivity gains that will enable it to keep providing food in years to come.
While low-cost and readily deployable sensor products are entering the market at an ever-increasing rate, the roster of novel applications for optical sensing continues to grow. This article highlights some key recent developments in optical sensors.
US President Joe Biden unveiled the first images from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) in July 2022. The joint NASA, ESA, and CSA mission is building on the success of previous space telescopes – notably, the Hubble Telescope – to provide the most detailed and captivating look at our universe.
