Lanthanide-doped upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) exhibit several excellent features, including broadly tunable multicolor emission and extended emission lifetimes.
While it has long been known that ultraviolet (UV) light can help kill disease-causing pathogens, the COVID 19 pandemic has put a spotlight on how these technologies can rid environments of germs.
New research headed by Vinod M. Menon and his team at The City College of New York illustrates that trapping light within magnetic materials may radically improve their inherent characteristics.
Structured light waves with spiral phase fronts include orbital angular momentum (OAM), which is linked to photon rotational motion.
Quantum Design UK and Ireland (QDUKI) have joined with Zolix Instruments to further strengthen our Spectroscopy, Light Measurement and Optics range.
At Teledyne FLIR, part of Teledyne Technologies Incorporated, we continuously strive for innovation. This commitment to continuous improvement has led us to create two new state-of-the-art spot IR thermometers: the FLIR TG54-2 and FLIR TG56-2.
Modern data transfer, in which data is conveyed through fiber optic cables in the form of modulated light beams, is among other things made possible by the quick switching and modulation of light.
A team led by a physicist from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) recently developed a new quantum theory that explains the “light-induced phase” of matter and predicts its novel functionalities.
The word meta implies an idea of surpassing or transcendence, and when applied to materials, metamaterials include artificially engineered substances that come with properties not found in the environment naturally.
An investigation done by scientists at the University of Oklahoma that were just published in Science Advances establishes the validity of the idea that information could be securely encoded and transmitted utilizing spatial correlations in quantum-entangled light beams.
