Electromagnetic waves in the terahertz regime contribute to important applications in communications, security imaging, and bio- and chemical sensing. Such wide applicability has resulted in significant technological progress.
Many researchers in the field of materials science constantly seek novel and versatile platforms that can be used to tailor materials to match their intended use.
The ability to precisely control the various properties of laser light is critical to much of the technology that we use today, from commercial virtual reality headsets to microscopic imaging for biomedical research.
Organic light-emitting diodes are widely used in display technology and are also being investigated for lighting applications.
Near-field light is invisible light at the subwavelength scale. Harnessed for a variety of practical applications, such as wireless power transfer, near-field light has an increasingly significant role in the development of miniature on-chip photonic devices.
Today, solar energy provides 2% of U.S. power. However, by 2050, renewables are predicted to be the most used energy source and solar will overtake wind as the leading source of renewable power.
Electrical engineers at the University of California San Diego developed a technology that improves the resolution of an ordinary light microscope so that it can be used to directly observe finer structures and details in living cells.
CRAIC Technologies, a global leader in UV-visible-NIR micro-analysis, today unveiled its new Lightblades™ spectrophotometer line. Lightblades™, a new concept in spectrophotometers, are designed specifically for microspectroscopy.
Ionization energy is considered one of the most significant physicochemical parameters. It is defined with respect to the amount of energy needed to rip an electron from an atom.
Polarization-sensitive photodetectors, based on anisotropic semiconductors, have exhibited wide advantages in specialized applications, such as astronomy, remote sensing, and polarization-division multiplexing.
