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.
The use of multimode optical fibers to boost the information capacity of the Internet is severely hampered by distortions that occur during the transmission of images because of a phenomenon called modal crosstalk.
The 2021 Annual Meeting of the Seismological Society of America saw scientists describing how fiber optic cable is being used to detect minor earthquakes that take place in ice in the Antarctica region.
Scientists are slowly clearing the boundary between science and art by exhibiting how to use a laser to make artistic masterpieces such that they replicate classical brushes and paints.
A research team of the National Institutes of Natural Sciences, National Institute for Fusion Science and Akita Prefectural University have successfully demonstrated a broadband mid-infrared (MIR) source with a simple configuration.
CyberOptics® Corporation, a leading global developer and manufacturer of high-precision 3D sensing technology solutions, will feature the WX3000™ metrology and inspection system with Multi-Reflection Suppression™ (MRS™) sensor technology at SEMICON China, scheduled to take place March 17-19, 2021 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, hall N1, booth 1387 and 1325. The company also will demonstrate high-precision WaferSense® sensors for semiconductor tool setup and diagnostics.
Waters Corporation today released the ACQUITY RDa™ Detector featuring SmartMS™, the company’s newest time-of-flight (TOF) mass spectrometer (MS) for small molecule analysis for pharmaceutical, academic, food, and forensics applications. The accurate-mass ACQUITY™ RDa Detector can be quickly deployed and operated to enable faster and more informed decision-making across a broad set of applications.
Lynred, a leading global provider of high-quality infrared detectors for the aerospace, military and consumer markets, today announces that it will invest €2.8 million ($3.37 M) in developing next- generation infrared (IR) detectors. Lynred will receive €900,000 ($1.08 M) in R&D funding from the French government as part of a program to revamp the microelectronics ecosystem in France.
