A complete medical check-up on a chip
(Phys.org) —About the size of a stapler, this new handheld device developed at EFPL is able to test a large number of proteins in our body all at once-a subtle combination of optical science and engineering.
Quantum dots provide complete control of photons
By emitting photons from a quantum dot at the top of a micropyramid, researchers at Linköping University are creating a polarized light source for such things as energy-saving computer screens and wiretap-proof ...
A micro-optical method for thwarting counterfeiting
In order to thwart forgeries, EPFL researchers propose a new miniaturized authentication system. By combining both, moire patterns and microlithography techniques, it can be easily recognized by the naked eye and impossible ...
