    AIM Photonics Releases Integrated Silicon Photonics PDK

    AIM Photonics has announced the integrated silicon photonics Process Design Kit (PDK) is now available to all those organizations that have executed membership agreements. The achievement of this important milestone resulted from a project led by...
  • These potassium diphosphate KDP crystals, which self-assemble in solution as hollow hexagonal rods, could find use in laser technology, particularly for fiber-optic communications The scanning-electron image at right shows a crystal at higher resolution w

    Inexpensively Engineered Longer Crystals for Lasers

    Laser applications may benefit from crystal research by scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Colorado (US) and China’s Shandong University. They have discovered a potential way to sidestep longstanding...
  • Activation colored circles at the level of the visual cortex of the visual system by prosthetic stimulation in the middle, in red, the insert shows an image of an implanted prosthesis is greater and more elongated than the activation achieved under natura

    Artificial Retinas Promise Clearer Vision

    A major therapeutic challenge, the retinal prostheses that have been under development during the past ten years can enable some blind subjects to perceive light signals, but the image thus restored is still far from being clear. By comparing in...
