The principle of laser wakefield accelerators: A high-power laser excites a charge wave in a plasma, which propagates at the speed of the laser pulse and pulls electrons behind it in its "wake", thus accelerating them.
A ground-breaking technique formulated by the Prevedel Group at European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) enables neuroscientists to track live neurons deep inside the brain — or any other cell concealed within an opaque tissue.
Using newly developed and recently patented technology, Cognex eliminates the speckle effect of laser lines, optimising triangulation-based 3D imaging.
Researchers have developed a highly accurate way to assemble multiple micron-scale optical devices extremely close together on a single chip.
Lasers, devices that emit light in one direction, with photons traveling at one specific frequency and all with the same phase (coherent), govern the way we communicate today.
Researchers have identified a key mechanism responsible for the lower efficiencies of organic solar cells and shown a way that this hurdle might be overcome.
A team of researchers from Bristol's Quantum Engineering and Technology Labs has shown how to protect qubits from errors using photons in a silicon chip.
Skoltech researchers led by Professor Dylov and their colleagues from First Pavlov State Medical University of St. Petersburg, Russia, have developed a brand-new approach to the task of 3D image segmentation —...

Additive manufacturing – also called 3D printing – has revolutionized many fields and has spurred researchers to investigate manufacturing techniques at the micro- and nanoscale.
X-ray mirrors are widely used for synchrotron radiation facilities, X-ray free-electron lasers and astronomical X-ray telescopes. The short wavelength and grazing incidence impose strict limits on the permissible slope errors.
Photonic integrated circuit has been the backbone for low-power and high-speed datacom/telecom communication systems, and is the enabling technology for a variety of emerging applications, including high performance computing, automobile, quantum communication, optical sensing, etc.
Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have succeeded in creating tiny vehicles powered by nothing but light.
Applications across various sectors employ different forms of linear transformation, like the Fourier transformation, for information processing.
