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.
Memory closes in on single photons
(Phys.org) —In a world-first, an optical memory – a key component for quantum computers – has been created within a hollow-core optical fibre and shown to operate at the level of a single particle of light (a photon).
3-D imaging provides window into living cells, no dye required
(Phys.org) —Living cells are ready for their close-ups, thanks to a new imaging technique that needs no dyes or other chemicals, yet renders high-resolution, three-dimensional, quantitative imagery of cells and their internal ...
Studies in laser physics help understand rogue waves
(Phys.org) —University of Auckland physicist Dr Miro Erkintalo is part of an international team investigating how lasers and optical fibres can be used to understand freakishly large waves on the ocean.
Quantum communication without entanglement could perform faster than previously thought possible
New material gives visible light an infinite wavelength
Researchers from the FOM Institute AMOLF and the University of Pennsylvania have fabricated a material which gives visible light a nearly infinite wavelength. The new metamaterial is made by stacking silver and silicon nitride ...
Inverted polymer solar cell efficiency sets world record
Quantum strategies fail to improve capacity of quantum optical communication channels
Final proof for optimal encoding strategies in optical communication
The massive transfer of data over the Internet that is vital to today's economy in our information society would not be possible without the crucial role played by fibre optics communication. Every time a node of the Internet ...
Novel X-ray device developed
Using a compact but powerful laser, a research team at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has developed a new way to generate synchrotron X-rays.
