3-D nanoprinting facilitates communication with light

At Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), researchers have developed a flexible and efficient concept to combine optical components in compact systems. They use a high-resolution 3-D printing process to produce tiny beam-shaping ...

New laser technique may help detect chemical warfare in atmosphere

The Department of Homeland Security could benefit from a reliable, real-time instrument that could scan the atmosphere for toxic agents in order to alert communities to a biological or chemical attack. UCF optics and photonics ...

Developing reliable quantum computers

Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems that even the biggest supercomputers today can't manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to ensure it is working reliably? Depending on the algorithmic task, ...

Lens trick doubles odds for quantum interaction

It's not easy to bounce a single particle of light off a single atom that is less than a billionth of a metre wide. However, researchers at the Centre for Quantum Technologies at the National University of Singapore have ...

How photons change chemistry

The quantum nature of light usually does not play an important role when considering the chemical properties of atoms or molecules. In an article published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences scientists ...

All-new multi-purpose programmable optical chips

Researchers at the Polytechnic Univeristy of Valencia are at the forefront of a revolution in microwave photonics, bringing us the first all-purpose programmable optical chips (currently laboratory scale only).

A quantum of light for materials science

Computer simulations that predict the light-induced change in the physical and chemical properties of complex systems, molecules, nanostructures and solids usually ignore the quantum nature of light. Scientists of the Max-Planck ...
