The original all-electronic, open-access optics journal, Optics Express (OpEx) is known for its rapid time to publication and high Impact Factor. OpEx publishes peer-reviewed articles that emphasize scientific and technology innovations in all aspects of optics and photonics.
Graphene flakes as an ultra-fast stopwatch
Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR), working with colleagues from the US and Germany, have developed a new optical detector from graphene which reacts very rapidly to incident light of all different ...
Researchers use beams of polarized light to carve intricate patterns on disks
Novel tech that manipulates light has applications beyond holograms
In 2010, Michael Escuti received funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to study and make novel hologram technologies.
Researchers clear the way for fast plasmonic chips
Researchers from the Laboratory of Nanooptics and Plasmonics at the MIPT Center of Nanoscale Optoelectronics have developed a new method for optical communication on a chip, which will could decrease the size of optical and ...
Optical 'dog's nose' may hold key to breath analysis
University of Adelaide researchers are developing a laser system for fast, non-invasive, onsite breath analysis for disease, potentially enabling screening for a range of diseases including diabetes, infections and various ...
Digital in-line holography helps researchers 'see' into fiery fuels
Transportation accidents, such as trucks crashing on a highway or rockets failing on a launch pad, can create catastrophic fires. It's important to understand how burning droplets of fuel are generated and behave in those ...
Colonoscopies of the future: Adjustable-focus endoscope helps to reduce discomfort
Colonoscopy is a safe and effective medical procedure that's proven to saves lives. Used for routine cancer screening, it can help identify colon tumors in their early stages. In addition, it is a key non-surgical imaging ...
Researchers develop high-resolution technique for non-invasively imaging hidden layers in centuries-old paintings
A painting hanging on the wall in an art gallery tells one story. What lies beneath its surface may tell quite another.
Researchers present new prototype of 3D display which can be used without 3D glasses
Flying cars, hoverboards and video chat - a very futuristic vision for the year 2015 was presented in the movie "Back to the Future Part II", released in 1989. Now, shortly before "Back to the Future Day" on October 21st, ...
Engineers develop next-gen temperature sensor
UNL engineers and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory have designed a next-generation temperature sensor set to improve the measurement of oceanic dynamics that shape marine biology, climate patterns and military operations.
