Infrared avalanche photodiodes from bulk to 2D materials

The avalanche multiplication effect can be used to detect low-power optical signals and even single photons due to the amplification mechanism within all main ranges: near- (NIR), short- (SWIR), mid- (MWIR) and long wavelength ...

Silicon-based metamaterials could bring photonic circuits

New transparent metamaterials under development could make possible computer chips and interconnecting circuits that use light instead of electrons to process and transmit data, representing a potential leap in performance.

Progress made in developing systems for disaster mitigation

When disaster strikes, an effective response system will tell emergency workers where to go, and enable them to get there unimpeded. Residents will receive information they need in order to protect themselves. Moreover, if ...

New record in quantum communications
