Conductive polymer nanoantennas for dynamic organic plasmonics

Researchers in the Organic Photonics and Nano-optics goup at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics have developed optical nanoantennas made from a conducting polymer. The antennas can be switched on and off, and will make ...

A new sensor for light, heat and touch

Inspired by the behaviour of natural skin, researchers at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics, Linkoping University, have developed a sensor that will be suitable for use with electronic skin. It can measure changes in ...

Graphene gives a tremendous boost to future terahertz cameras

In a recent study, researchers developed a novel graphene-enabled photodetector that operates at room temperature, is highly sensitive, fast, has a wide dynamic range, and covers a broad range of THz frequencies. The researchers ...

Novel color sensors are less expensive to manufacture

In the FOWINA project, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in Erlangen and the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC in Würzburg have developed novel color sensors with a special microlens arrangement. ...

Transition metal complexes: Mixed works better

A team at BESSY II has investigated how various iron-complex compounds process energy from incident light. They were able to show why certain compounds have the potential to convert light into electrical energy. The results ...

Controlling photon energy density in opaque materials

Just like merry people at a party, photons perform random walks through white paint; but their density remained out of control. Recently, scientists at the University of Twente in the Netherlands have managed to control the ...
