Batteries are essential to achieve a fossil-free and climate-neutral society. Solid-state batteries are considered to be the future within battery technology, although further research is necessary.
Peng Chen and Laurent Bellaiche of the University of Arkansas found an astounding mechanism for controlling ferroelectric polarization in a deterministic manner by applying light.
For the first time, scientists have illustrated light-induced thermomagnetic recording in a magnetic thin-film on silicon waveguides. The writing method could lead to miniature greater performance magneto-optical memories without the need for bulky optics or mechanical rotation.
Radiant Vision Systems, a leading provider of visual test and measurement solutions for light sources and displays, announces its new ProMetric® I-SC Solution for light and color measurement.
The heart of chemistry and biology is phenomena lasting trillionths of a second. They are everywhere. The world has only recently started trying to document their real path, with mixed results.
A team led by Prof. Liang Li and Prof. Guanghai Li from the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ (CAS) Hefei Institutes of Physical Science (HFIPS) and Prof. Feng Yan from Hong Kong Polytechnic University recently developed a new two-dimensional (2D)-based photodetector with ultrafast photoresponse and broadband detection abilities.
VTT is Finland’s major developer of silicon photonics. Silicon chips’ fast speed, energy efficiency, and minuscule size can help a wide range of applications, from medical to autonomous transportation.
The entire international community agrees that the key global problems in the next decades will be attaining a carbon emission peak and eventually becoming carbon neutral.
Nanowire (NW) lasers with the NW concurrently serving as optical cavity and gain medium are appealing for miniaturized photonic integration platforms, which have advantages of ultracompact footprint, low energy consumption, easy integration, and potential mass production.
In the last few years, thanks to the progress in the vast processing capacity and parallelism of contemporary graphics processing units (GPUs), deep learning reliant on convolutional neural networks (CNN) has advanced quickly, resulting in operative solutions for a range of problems in artificial intelligence (AI) applications.
Researchers have employed liquid crystals for the first time to develop a flat magic window, which is a transparent device that generates a concealed picture when light shines on it. The technology offers a fresh take on an age-old light trick.
Due to their small size, great efficiency, low price, and wide spectral range, semiconductor lasers are the most extensively utilized lasers in our daily life.
Laser Photonics Corp., a global leading industrial company in high-tech laser systems for laser cleaning, and other materials applications, today announces the launch of the CleanTech™ 3000-CTH laser cleaning system (3KW).
Radiant Vision Systems, leading provider of automated visual inspection and metrology solutions for light sources, displays, and surfaces, announces the release of its new Area Color Inspection System (ACIS™) for color and quality inspection of characters and symbols.
Image processing can be used to accelerate, control and optimise processes. When artificial intelligence comes into play, the range of applications becomes even wider. This is especially true for agriculture and the food...
