Single molecule can shift the phase of a laser beam
Researchers demonstrate an electrochromic nanoplasmonic optical switch
In a recent article in Nano Letters, CNST researchers describe a new high-contrast, low operating-voltage, electrochemical optical switch that uses a volume of active dye orders-of-magnitude smaller than that of conventional electr ...
Vertical cavity quantum switch could lead us away from electronics-based computing
Small details between 'in vivo' and 'in vitro' studies make for big differences
Small details between "in vivo" and "in vitro" studies make for big differences in understanding diabetes and other secretory dysfunctions
Fujitsu develops optical switch that cuts power consumption by half
Fujitsu Laboratories Limited today announced that it has been able to halve the power consumption of an optical waveguide switch based on silicon photonics through the world's first use of fine-patterned silicon ...
Plasma as a fast optical switch
Laser uses relativistic effects to turn otherwise opaque plasma transparent, creating an ultra-fast optical switch useful in next-generation particle accelerators.
An Internet 100 times as fast: A new network design could boost capacity
(PhysOrg.com) -- The heart of the Internet is a network of high-capacity optical fibers that spans continents. But while optical signals transmit information much more efficiently than electrical signals, ...
New photonic material may facilitate all-optical switching and computing
A class of molecules whose size, structure and chemical composition have been optimized for photonic use could provide the demanding combination of properties needed to serve as the foundation for low-power, ...
Presto! Fast color-changing material may lead to more powerful computers (w/Video)
(PhysOrg.com) -- Researchers in Japan are reporting development of a new so-called "photochromic" material that changes color thousands of times faster than conventional materials when exposed to light.
