Scientists achieve high power with new smaller laser

An international team of scientists has produced the first high-powered, randomly polarised laser beam with a "Q switch" laser, which typically emits pulses of light so brief that they're measured in nanoseconds. Lasers are ...

A new model of frequency combs in optical microresonators

A team from the Faculty of Physics of the Lomonosov Moscow State University, together with scientists from the Russian Quantum Center, have developed a new mathematical model that describes the process of soliton occurrence ...

Researchers develop transportable optical atomic clock

Atomic clocks are no longer based on a microwave transition in cesium, instead operating with other atoms that are excited using optical frequencies. Some of these new clocks are portable. At its QUEST Institute, PTB is currently ...

Scientists create high-speed coding system

Scientists of the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI (Russia) have proposed a scheme for optical encoding of information based on the formation of wave fronts, and which works with spatially incoherent illumination. ...

The world's first all-silicon laser

Integrated silicon photonics incorporates microelectronics and optoelectronics, a combination expected to revolutionize a variety of fields such as communication, sensing, lighting, displays, imaging and detection. Silicon ...

Multiphoton interference observed beyond coherence time

For the first time, scientists have experimentally demonstrated how multiphoton interference with thermal light can be observed beyond the coherence time, paving the way to a possible new range of applications in high-precision ...
