To advance Europe’s competitiveness and support advanced technical developments, the European Commission is providing €3 million of funding to early adopters of the PHABULOuS Pilot Line Services for the implementation and integration of free-form micro-optical components.
Ultra-precise lasers find their use in various applications. For example, power cable monitoring, quantum computers, optical atomic clocks, and much more. However, all lasers tend to make noise, which scientists from DTU Fotonik wish to reduce with the help of machine learning.
Researchers have shown that newly designed pixel-scale metasurface lenses — flat surfaces that use nanostructures to manipulate light — can be used to make imaging sensors that are roughly three times more sensitive than those used today.
As digitalization continues to make headway, finding ways of increasing the security of the exchange of sensitive information becomes ever more important.
The increased use of optical fiber has seen a greater focus on the precise control and measurement of its diameter. That is due to the diameter being vital for a wide range of fields, from high-speed optical communication to ultra-high sensitivity sensing.
Researchers at the University of Surrey have identified key design rules for making curved X-ray detectors, bringing clearer and safer X-rays a step closer to reality.
Cancer immunotherapy, one of the most important and promising therapies for cancer treatments, is being used by oncologists to treat patients suffering from many different cancers including breast, cervical, colon, stomach, and skin.
Australian researchers have developed disruptive technology allowing autonomous vehicles to track running pedestrians hidden behind buildings, and cyclists obscured by larger cars, trucks, and buses.
Photonis Scientific has announced that the company will be exhibiting at the 69th American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics, taking place between the 31st of October and the 4th of November 2021
Highspeed fibre optic switches benefit from non-mechanical operation. They are based on electro-optic technology and are highly reliable with no moving parts and organic materials in the light path.
