A compact 'on-silicon-chip' laser has been developed by A*STAR researchers that boasts both excellent confinement of light for lasing and the ability to efficiently share the laser light with nearby components.
More luminous and energy efficient than LEDs, white lasers look to be the future in lighting and light-based wireless communication.
Researchers at Tohoku University and the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) in Japan, have developed a novel ultra-compact heterogeneous wavelength tunable laser diode. The heterogeneous ...
The FBH presented the latest results from their project CryoLaser at CLEO 2015, demonstrating for the first time that a single 1-cm laser bar can deliver at least 2 kilowatt (kW) of optical output power, when cooled to 203 ...
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has installed and commissioned the highest peak power laser diode arrays in the world, representing total peak power of 3.2 megawatts (MW).
Organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), which are made from carbon-containing materials, have the potential to revolutionize future display technologies, making low-power displays so thin they'll wrap or fold around other ...
A new semiconductor laser developed at Yale has the potential to significantly improve the imaging quality of the next generation of high-tech microscopes, laser projectors, photolithography, holography, and biomedical imaging.
Researchers generate tunable photon-pair spectrum using a room-temperature quantum optics silicon chip
A team of researchers from the University of California, San Diego have demonstrated a way to emit and control quantum light generated using a chip made from silicon—one of the most widely used materials for modern electronics.
Diode lasers—used in laser pointers, barcode scanners, DVD players, and other low-power applications—are perhaps the most efficient, compact, and low-cost lasers available.
(Phys.org) —Gallium nitride has emerged as one of the most widely used materials in the optoelectronics industry and the most important semiconducting material after silicon.
