Current Headlines

  1. Researchers From Leading Institutes Meet Established Industry Experts

    LASER COMPONENTS USA, a specialized provider of laser and optoelectronic components in the US and Canada, and MIRTHE+ Photonics Sensing Center team up again to host a WORKshop on Infrared Technologies – this time at Princeton University on October 29 - 30. The latest developments for new detection materials, gas sensing instrumentation, LEDs and lasers, and spectroscopy innovations will be the focus during 30 presentations and nine dedicated Q&A networking sessions with leaders in the field.

  2. Physicists Couple Key Components Of Quantum Technologies

    Quantum effects are genuinely found in the world of nanostructures and allow a wide variety of new technological applications. For example, a quantum computer could in the future solve problems, which conventional computers need a lot of time to handle.

  3. Creating A Single Phonon In Ambient Conditions

    EPFL physicists have for the first time successfully observed a single quantum of vibrational energy at ambient conditions, involving the oscillation of more than 100 billion atoms. The work opens up new possibilities for the study of quantum phenomena and ultrafast quantum technologies at room temperature.

  4. Thin To Win

    The new wave of smartphones to hit the market all come with incredible cameras that produce brilliant photos. There’s only one complaint—the thick camera lenses on the back that jet out like ugly bumps on a sheet of glass.

  5. 2D-Based Single Photon Emitters Integrated With CMOS-Compatible Silicon Nitride Waveguides

    Researchers from the Photonics Research Group, an imec research group at Ghent university and MIT announced that they have integrated single photon emitters in 2D layered materials with a Silicon Nitride photonic chip.

  6. Cooling Nanotube Resonators With Electrons

    Mechanical resonators have been used with great success as new resources in quantum technology. Carbon nanotube mechanical resonators have shown to be excellent ultra-high sensitive devices for the study of new physical phenomena at the nanoscale (e.g. spin physics, quantum electron transport, surface science, and light-matter interaction).

  7. New Horizons For Connecting Future Quantum Computers Into A Quantum Network

    Researchers, led by Delft University of Technology, have made two steps in the conversion of quantum states between signals in the microwave and optical domains. This is of great interest for connecting future superconducting quantum computers into a global quantum network.

  8. New Hybrid-GFF With Additional Optical Capabilities

    Iridian is proud to announce that we offer Hybrid-GFF with additional optical capabilities.

  9. Modified Quantum Dots Capture More Energy From Light And Lose Less To Heat
  10. Physicists Shine Light On Properties Of Potential Solar Cell Material

    Research led by University of Texas at Dallas physicists has altered the understanding of the fundamental properties of perovskite crystals, a class of materials with great potential as solar cells and light emitters.
