Optical resonators are used in everything from familiar laser pointers to cutting-edge photonic quantum computers.
Since the invention of the world's first transistor by scientists at Bell Labs in December 1947, there has been a significant revolution in microelectronics technology that has had a profound impact on lifestyles worldwide.
A nanosecond-scale volatile modulation scheme combining a phase-change material was developed by scientists. This was done as a discovery for optical computing.
Medical imaging technology such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and X-Ray could not offer real-time images at the time of tumor resection surgery, and surgeons usually depend on touch, visual, and experience to categorize tumor margin, resulting in a high probability of tumor residues
Topology and nanophotonics have drawn a lot of attention because of the special qualities they possess.
In the movie Bruce Almighty, the protagonist named Bruce, met God by chance and was offered almighty powers.
The so-called permanent magnets, the kind discovered on refrigerators all over the place, exist since their constituent atoms act as miniature magnets.
At the University of Southampton, a research group has displayed the fact that light could be moved within a distance that is smaller than its wavelength—a level of unparalleled accuracy.
When optical beams comprising photons tend to travel via fibers, they lead to vibrations that produce acoustic waves, consisting of phonons.
A recent study led by Javier Abajo from the Institut de Ciencies Fotoniques (ICFO) and Qing Dai from the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) demonstrated a gate-tunable nanoscale negative refraction of polaritons in the mid-infrared range through a van der Waals heterostructure of graphene and molybdenum trioxide.
