A research team of the National Institutes of Natural Sciences, National Institute for Fusion Science and Akita Prefectural University have successfully demonstrated a broadband mid-infrared (MIR) source with a simple configuration.
Imec, a world-leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies, presents an optomechanical ultrasound sensor on a silicon photonic chip that has an unprecedented sensitivity due to an innov...
The sensor network MUCCnet (Munich Urban Carbon Column network) consists of five high-precision optical instruments that analyze the sun's light spectra. They measure the concentration of the gases carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and carbon monoxide (CO). Since each gas has its own unique spectral "fingerprint", concentrations of these gases can be determined in the columns of air between the instruments and the sun.
Scientists from Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) and their collaborators from Russian and foreign scientific centers have identified a new technique to predict the temperature of a chemical reaction stimulated by pseudo-particles—plasmons.
Velodyne Lidar, Inc. today announced a new digital learning series called Velodyne Lidar LIVE! that begins January 28, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. PST.
Sheaumann has launched a new Transistor Outline (TO) package. Sheaumann’s “Tall” TO-Can provides continuous-wave, single-mode power up to 600mW and multimode power up to 3W in a variety of near-infrared wavelengths 785-1064nm.
Simple Zoom Lens for Use in Remote or Hazardous Environments
Researchers at Oregon State University are making key advances with a new type of optical sensor that more closely mimics the human eye's ability to perceive changes in its visual field.
Researchers from the Disruptive & Sustainable Technologies for Agricultural Precision (DiSTAP) Interdisciplinary Research Group (IRG) of Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART), MIT's research enterprise in Singapore and Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory (TLL) have designed a portable optical sensor that can monitor whether a plant is under stress. The device offers farmers and plant scientists a new tool for early diagnosis and real-time monitoring of plant health in field conditions.
Skoltech researchers and their colleagues from Russia and Israel have come up with a new, simple and inexpensive method of testing liquid biological samples that can be further developed to work in clinical settings, including real-time testing during surgery. The paper was published in the journal Light: Science & Applications.
