For the first time, scientists have achieved the selective excitation of a molecule by employing a combination of two extreme-ultraviolet light sources, leading to the molecule’s controlled dissociation while meticulously tracking its evolution over time.
Researchers have recently developed an advanced form of photonic spiking neural networks (SNNs), a significant step in neuromorphic computing. This new approach utilizes a multi-synaptic photonic SNN, combining modified remote supervised learning with delay-weight co-training for pattern classification.
RIKEN physicists created several vortices in a quantum photonic system and tracked their evolution using a special combination of laser beams as a very fast stirrer.
Teledyne FLIR today introduced a new 80° lens with an ultrawide field of view, designed to enable maintenance managers, engineers, and mechanical technicians to keep an eye on assets in a large target area for continuous monitoring, condition monitoring, and early intervention of developing faults.
ZX Measurement Services deploys ZX 300 wind Lidar at Bettyhill Wind Farm in north Scotland.
Researchers at the University of Warsaw's Faculty of Physics superposed two clockwise twisted light beams to create anti-clockwise twists in the ensuing superposition's dark regions.
In several scientific disciplines, such as biochemistry, physiology, and neuroscience, microscopes were crucial instruments for scientific study. To rectify light wavefront aberrations caused by intrinsic optical system limits and non-uniform sample structures, adaptive optics, or AO, have been employed in microscopes. Sample structures and wavefront aberrations were unknown before imaging, making AO difficult to regulate even though it significantly improves microscope imaging quality.
Engineer Steven Denis was selected the FY23 Internal Research and Development (IRAD) Innovator of the Year by Goddard’s Office of the Chief Technologist, an honor bestowed yearly on those who exemplify the best in innovation.
Warming has been pivotal in many industrial and agricultural operations across time. Yet, nighttime heating poses a unique hurdle due to the lack of sunlight.
The ability to activate superconductivity with a laser beam has been established before, and MPSD researchers have shown that this capability can be incorporated on a chip, paving the way for optoelectronic applications.
Auburn, MA – In its latest white paper, the authors explain how photonics engineers and scientists can benefit from the latest alignment algorithms. The algorithms can be used with a wide range of hardware and appl...
Lasers are vital tools for observing, analyzing, and quantifying things in the natural world that are not visible to the naked eye. These tasks are limited by the need to use expensive and large instruments.
