Novus Light Home year of the light



Covering the cutting edge global research in light based technologies.

Researchers from Boston Childrens Hospital, the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, Harvard John A Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences SEAS and the Karp Lab at Brigham and Womens Hospital have jointly
  • CMUs three-fingered soft robotic hand with multiple embedded fiber optic sensors

    Fiber Optic Sensors for Soft Robotic Hands

    Scientists at the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (US), have designed a three-fingered soft robotic hand with multiple embedded fiber optic sensors. Additionally, they have developed a new type of stretchable optical...
  • All-optical data memory Ultra-short light pulses make the GST material change from crystalline to amorphous and back Weak light pulses read out the data Photo C RiosOxford University

    First Integrated Nonvolatile All-Photonic Chip Memory

    In a potentially significant leap toward optical computers, researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany and the universities of Münster, also in Germany, and Oxford and Exeter, both in the UK, have developed the first...
  • Heterogeneously integrated III-V laser on thin SOI with compact optical vertical interconnect access Photo Data Storage Institute, ASTAR
  • The overlay is visibly transparent and clearly shows objects underneath Thus, the cooling will not affect the performance of the solar absorber, which needs to absorb sunlight
  • Tunable Light-Emitting Metallic Gels Promising for Chemical, Biological Detectors

    Tunable Light of Metallic Gels

    Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US have engineered a metallic polymer gel that can emit light in different colors, including pure white. Its visible, color-coded output is chemically tunable to respond to even...

    Fluence Untangles Polymer Clumps in Plastic Solar Cells

    The performance of electronic devices and solar cells highly depends on the thin film morphology. Previously, however, scientists understood little about how to control this morphology.  That is why you may see very high performance in...
