Researchers fabricate complex optical components from fluids

Researchers have developed a way to create freeform optical components by shaping a volume of curable liquid polymer. The new method is poised to enable faster prototyping of customized optical components for a variety of ...

Efficient light with the help of mathematics

How do you make sure that light gets to the right place without loss of energy? To do that, lamps often use mirrors and lenses. But how do you adjust them properly to get the correct light output? Lotte Romijn investigated ...

Researchers demonstrate attosecond boost for electron microscopy

A team of physicists from the University of Konstanz and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München in Germany have achieved attosecond time resolution in a transmission electron microscope by combining it with a continuous-wave ...

Physicists make electrical nanolasers even smaller

Researchers from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and King's College London cleared the obstacle that had prevented the creation of electrically driven nanolasers for integrated circuits. The approach, reported ...

3-D laser damage positioned by deep-learning method

Traditional online damage detection schemes can directly detect and characterize damage by imaging optical components. However, due to optical resolution, noise, shadows and reflections, the small-size damage points cannot ...
