    Gravitational Waves Work Wins 2017 Nobel Prize

    On 14 September 2015, the universe's gravitational waves were observed for the very first time. The waves, which were predicted by Albert Einstein a hundred years ago, came from a collision between two black holes. It took...

    DNA: The next hot material in photonics?

    Using DNA from salmon, researchers in South Korea hope to make better biomedical and other photonic devices based on organic thin films. Often used in cancer treatments and health monitoring, thin films have all the capabilities...

    Researchers Store Light as Sound

    A team from Australian National University and the University of Sydney in Australia has successfully stored light waves as sound waves for the first time.  The speed of sound is 100000 times slower than the speed of light. Thus, by...

    Decontaminating Soil with High-Power IR Lasers

    A new method developed at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts (US), uses high-power lasers to thermally decompose soil contaminants. Directly breaking down toxins and pollutants, the researchers say this decontamination approach could...
  • UbiQD Vice President, Matt Bergren, PhD, holds a 1 ft2 quantum dot-glass luminescent solar concentrator prototype The edges strongly emit near infra-red light 850 nm peak emission that gets guided into small but conventional solar cells hidden in the wind

    Less Toxic Quantum Dots

    In their quest for new materials for solar windows with ubiquitous tint, UbiQD, a company based in Los Alamos, New Mexico (US), has developed less toxic quantum dots. “We make quantum dots based on benign elements like copper, zinc,...
