Researchers at MIT have developed a way to control how water moves over a surface, using light
Fitting photovoltaic panels to semi-trailers could save up to 1,900 litres of fuel per year, according to a Fraunhofer study assessing the economic feasibility of PV in commercial vehicles
Researchers from the Femto-ST Institute in France have developed an X-ray sensor that's small enough to fit inside the end of a micro-optical fibre
For the first time, researchers have used optical resolution photoacoustic microscopy to observe the development of blood vessels in zebrafish embryos without using any labels or contrast agents
Following on from his talk at Strategies in Light USA, Dr Paul Rudy from SoraaLaser explains the latest developments in GaN laser diodes and laser pumped phosphor architectures, and discusses the merits of lasers compared to other lighting technologies
A five terawatt, 1kHz OPCPA-based laser system worth €4 million has been produced by a consortium led by Ekspla and Light Conversion
To meet the increasing popularity of using mobile phone apps to pay for purchases, researchers from the University of Oxford in the UK have developed a method for transmitting quantum keys at a high enough data rate to ensure data security while compensating for moving hands.
The handheld device, which the researchers say could be miniaturised for use in a mobile device, will help ensure consumers’ personal financial information is safe from cyber-attacks.
The photoacoustic imaging (PAI) market is expected to reach $240 million in 2022, driven by its translation into clinical applications, new analysis suggests
