Nature Photonics is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the Nature Publishing Group. The journal covers research related to optoelectronics, laser science, imaging, communications, and other aspects of photonics and was established in January 2007. Nature Photonics publishes review articles, research papers, News and Views pieces, and research highlights summarizing the latest scientific findings in optoelectronics. This is complemented by a mix of articles dedicated to the business side of the industry covering areas such as technology commercialization and market analysis. The editor-in-chief is Oliver Graydon.
New laser technology could divert lightning strikes
(Phys.org) —Optical scientists at the University of Arizona and the University of Central Florida have developed a technology capable of sending high-intensity laser beams through the atmosphere much farther than was possible ...
New technique to help produce next-generation photonic chips
Researchers from the University of Southampton have developed a new technique to help produce more reliable and robust next generation photonic chips.
Record high data accuracy rates for phase-modulated transmission
We want data. Lots of it. We want it now. We want it to be cheap and accurate.
A design guide for future graphene chips
Swiss scientists have come up with a "how-to manual" for making the most efficient optical graphene circuits possible. The procedure facilitates and accelerates technological development in this future field. The research ...
Creating bright X-ray pulses in the laser lab
To create X-rays—short wave radiation—scientists at TU Vienna start out with very long wavelengths—infrared laser. Long wavelength laser pulses rip atoms out of metal and accelerate them, which leads to emission of ...
New 'T-ray' tech converts light to sound for weapons detection, medical imaging
A device that essentially listens for light waves could help open up the last frontier of the electromagnetic spectrum—the terahertz range.
Scientists X-ray tiny cell organelles responsible for carbon fixation
An international team of scientists led by Uppsala University has developed a high-throughput method of imaging biological particles using an X-ray laser. The images show projections of the carboxysome particle, a delicate ...
Experiment opens the door to multi-party quantum communication (Update)
In the world of quantum science, Alice and Bob have been talking to one another for years. Charlie joined the conversation a few years ago, but now by enforcing the space-like separation of the three parties, scientists have ...
Team improves solar-cell efficiency
New light has been shed on solar power generation using devices made with polymers, thanks to a collaboration between scientists in the University of Chicago's chemistry department, the Institute for Molecular Engineering, ...
Defying physics, engineers prove a magnetic field for light
In electronics, changing the path of electrons and manipulating how they flow is as easy as applying a magnetic field.
