Quantum communication has presented a revolutionary step in secure communication due to its high security of the quantum information, and many communication protocols have been proposed, such as the quantum secure direct communication protocol.
Researchers at the Chalmers University of Technology demonstrated a distinct optical amplifier with the caliber to revolutionize both space and fiber communication.
The advent of mid-infrared lasers has been a boon to medical, military, and other fields. Fiber laser is one among them and has garnered wider interest. As the core material of mid-infrared fiber laser, laser glass has a great impact on advancing its performance.
Spacecraft requires effective radiation monitoring systems to protect both the crew and electronics from radiation. The International Space Station (ISS), quite similar to the Large Hadron Collider at CERN (Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire or European Council for Nuclear Research), is a complicated radiation environment that needs customized dosimetry devices.
In a new study, researchers demonstrate an automated, easy-to-operate quantum key distribution system using the fiber network in the city of Padua, Italy.
Optical Surfaces Ltd reports how it is machining and polishing high precision Fibre Optic Channel Plates (FOCP) for an X-ray shielding application.
The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, together with the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, has patented a multicore fibre optic monitoring system for future use in 5G networks.
A group of physicists, headed by Dr. David Phillips from the University of Exeter, have introduced a new method to regulate light that has been scattered by passage via a single hair-thin strand of optical fiber.
Light waves largely govern the sustained growth of cellular and wireless data traffic. Microwave photonics can be defined as the field of technology that is devoted to the processing and distribution of electrical data signals through optical ways.
Scientists have used fibre-optic sensing to obtain the most detailed measurements of ice properties ever taken on the Greenland Ice Sheet.
