Sensors for measuring the properties of tiny amounts of fluid

Researchers in Singapore have developed fibre-based "optofluidic" sensors for measuring the properties of tiny amounts of fluid. The innovation increases the sensitivity of measurements and makes it less expensive for researchers ...

Radio astronomy backed by big data projects

As the leading edge of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project, the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) radio telescope is at the forefront of the big data challenges facing radio astronomy, presenting and solving issues that ...

Applications of optical fibre for sensors

Mikel Bravo-Acha's PhD thesis has focused on the applications of optical fibre as a sensor. In the course of his research, conducted at the NUP/UPNA-Public University of Navarre, he monitored a sensor fitted to optical fibre ...

Beating cyber criminals with quantum solutions

As hackers get more sophisticated in their cyber crime efforts, we need to look to new technology to make our systems more secure, and potentially unhackable.

Two photons strongly coupled by glass fiber

Usually, light waves do not interact with each other. Coupling of photons with other photons is only possible with the help of special materials and very intense light. Scientists in Vienna have now created the strongest ...
