A breakthrough innovation in the measurement of lasers can measure changes one millionth of the size of an atom and could revolutionize their use in quantum technologies and healthcare thanks to new, lower-cost technology.
A new experiment appearing in Science shows that features that are even 100 times smaller than the wavelength can still be sensed by light.
Despite a surge in solar cell R&D in recent years involving emerging materials such as organics and perovskites, the solar cell industry continues to favor inorganic crystalline silicon photovoltaics. While thin-film solar ...
Solar cells convert light into electricity. While the sun is one source of light, the burning of natural resources like oil and natural gas can also be harnessed.
The research team led by Professor Hele Savin has developed a new light detector that can capture more than 96 percent of the photons covering visible, ultraviolet and infrared wavelengths.
By weaving some quantum wizardry, A*STAR researchers have achieved something that appears to be a contradiction in terms—using visible light to perform spectroscopy at infrared wavelengths. Even more mysterious is that ...
A new optical effect in nanoscale disks of silicon, namely patterns of radiation that do not emit or scatter light, has been observed by A*STAR researchers and international collaborators. These modes, which have never before ...
Researchers have developed the first standard LED covering the full visible light, in collaboration with Nichia Corporation.
A revolutionary new type of laser developed by the University of Adelaide is promising major advances in remote sensing of greenhouse gases.
Laser physicists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics developed a measuring system for light waves in the near-infrared range.
