  • The flexible sensor could be integrated into low-cost sensing systems for in-line diagnostics and monitoring

    Multispectral Light Sensors Built from Doped Nanorods

    Semiconductor-based photodiodes are widely used in industry to detect light at a range of frequencies from the ultraviolet through the visible to the near infra red. Such photodiodes operate by absorbing photons, which then generate a flow of...
  • Professor Zenghu Chang from the Department of Physics and the College of Optics and Photonics at the University of Central Florida set a world record when he produced an attosecond pulse just 67as in duration

    Lasers Freeze Electron Movement

    Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor Harold Edgerton is widely known as a pioneer in the field of ultra-high speed photography. By synchronizing strobe flashes with the motion of objects, then taking a series of photographs through...
  • IMEC researchers have found that illumination stabilizes the morphology of polymerfullerene bulk heterojunction BHJ solar cells that are exposed to elevated temperatures

    Light-Induced Stabilisation of Organic Solar Cells

    Organic solar is a topic of much interest because of their light weight, flexibility and low manufacturing costs. At IMOMEC, Imec’s associated lab at Hasselt University in Belgium, researchers have found that illumination stabilizes the...
  • Fraunhofer researchers have developed a technique to produce mini-OLED screens without colour filters

    OLED Production Technique Slashes Costs, Improves Luminosity

    Screens made of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are a promising technology. Until now, however, a minimal lifespan and very high production costs have prevented them from becoming a widespread commercial product. Researchers at the Fraunhofer...
  • ETH Zrich exotic multi particle states of light and matter

    Multiparticle Quantum States of Light and Matter

    Researchers at the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich (ETH Zürich) in Switzerland have observed exotic states of matter that so far cannot be explained in theoretical models. In the experiment, which represents a combination...

    Light-Activated Diabetes Drug

    Researchers at Imperial College London in the UK and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) in Munich, Germany, adapted an existing drug used to treat type 2 diabetes to change shape and switch on when exposed to a small amount of blue LED light...
  • Perovskite solar cell in tandem with highly efficient catalyst EPFL

    Efficient Hydrogen Production with Perovskite Solar Cells

    Researchers at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland have for the first time demonstrated a highly efficient water splitting process by connecting two perovskite solar cells in series and using a...
  • Nanoimprint Lithography improves polymer solar cells

    Efficient Polymer Solar Cells Through Nanoimprint Lithography

    Nanoimprint lithography (NIL) could be an effective new technique to simultaneously control the active layer morphology and polymer chain orientation for efficient charge separation and transport in polymer solar cells. Being able to significantly...
  • Silicon Detectors for Telecommunications

    Promise of Silicon Detectors for Telecommunications

    Under the leadership of the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) at the University of Southampton (UK), researchers have demonstrated a pioneering laser processing technique that could enable silicon detectors for telecommunications. Thanks to its...
  • Cephalopod-Inspired Camouflage Material from MIT

    Cephalopod-Inspired Camouflage Material

    Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US have been looking to cephalopods, a group of marine animals that are exemplary camouflage artists, for clues on how to create the first synthetic material that can...
