Researchers enable transmission of specific colors of light over long distances

Scientists create diodes made of light March 16, 2018
Photonics researchers at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) have achieved the extra-ordinary by creating a diode consisting of light that can be used, for the first time, in miniaturised photonic circuits, as published ... A microscopic roundabout for light—team develops a magnet-free optical circulator May 4, 2018
Circulators are important components in communication technology. Their unique way of routing light usually requires centimeter-sized magnets, which are difficult to miniaturize for use on optical chips. Researchers at AMOLF ... Scientists develop new optical circuit components to manipulate light November 28, 2016
Do you think your computer is fast enough? Think again. The computers of the future could work almost at the speed of light! Nanophotonics, the study of light at the nanometer scale, could indeed bring the speed of our technology ... Squeezing light into a tiny channel brings optical computing a step closer November 30, 2017
By forcing light to go through a smaller gap than ever before, researchers have paved the way for computers based on light instead of electronics. Nanoscale 'abacus' uses pulses of light instead of wooden beads to perform calculations November 2, 2017
The quest to develop ever-faster and more powerful computers has led to one of the most rudimentary methods of counting being given a 21st century make-over. Researchers camouflage an optical chip rendering it invisible November 13, 2017
Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) researchers have achieved a breakthrough in manipulating light to render an object, such as an optical chip, invisible. Recommended for you Solutions to water challenges reside at the interface July 17, 2018
In response to rising water scarcity, leading Argonne National Laboratory researcher Seth Darling describes the most advanced research innovations that could address global clean water accessibility. His comprehensive paper ... Researchers enable transmission of specific colors of light over long distances July 17, 2018
Researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have reached a new milestone on the way to optical computing, or the use of light instead of electricity for computing. They explored a new way to select and ... New cost-effective instrument measures molecular dynamics on a picosecond timescale July 17, 2018
Studying the photochemistry, or chemical results of light, has shown that ultraviolet radiation can set off harmful chemical reactions in the human body and, alternatively, can provide "photo-protection" by dispersing extra ... Exploding waves from colliding dissipative pulses July 17, 2018
The interaction of traveling waves in dissipative systems, physical systems driven by energy dissipation, can yield unexpected and sometimes chaotic results. These waves, known as dissipative pulses (DSs), are driving experimental ... New study could hold key to hack-proof systems July 17, 2018
Major data breaches have made worldwide headlines of late but an international consortium of scientists—including a professor from Heriot-Watt—have developed a new technique that could result in hack-proof systems. What happens when we heat the atomic lattice of a magnet all of a sudden? July 17, 2018
Magnets have fascinated humans for several thousand years and enabled the age of digital data storage. They occur in various flavors. Ferrimagnets form the largest class of magnets and consist of two types of atoms. Similar ...
