Physicists prove new potential for silicon chips

Scientists have opened a door to faster, cheaper telecommunications after proving a new link between silicon chips and 'rare-earth' metals used in internet signalling.

New sensor to aid in vitro fertilization

The tricky process of monitoring early-stage embryos during the in vitro fertilization process could become much easier with the development of a new fibre-optic sensor that can measure concurrently, hydrogen peroxide and ...

Nanoscale one-way street for light

An optical device at nanoscale which allows light to pass in only one direction has been developed at TU Wien (Vienna). It consists of alkali atoms which are coupled to ultrathin glass fibres.

Light-optics research could improve medical imaging

A team of researchers, including The University of Queensland's Dr Joel Carpenter, has developed echo-less lights that could improve medical imaging inside the body, leading to less-intrusive surgery.

Photonics to revolutionise internet speeds

While people may have never heard of photonics before, they will surely have heard about the technology that relies on its existence, namely the internet, computers and smartphones.
