  • Thanks to a carefully designed optical setup, the new standoff ultra-compact micro Raman SUCR instrument can perform microscopic Raman analysis of samples 10 centimeters away from the instrument with 173-micron resolution Image Credit M Nurul Abedin, NASA
  • This is a sample photo taken with the 1Megapixel Quanta Image Sensor operating at 1,040 frames per second, with total power consumption as low as 17mW It is a binary single-photon image, so if the pixel was hit by one or more photons, it is white if not,
  • Laser-Boron Fusion Within Reach

    Laser-Boron Fusion Within Reach

    Scientists argue that the path to hydrogen-boron fusion is now viable, and may be closer to realization than other approaches, such as the deuterium-tritium fusion approach currently being pursued. A laser-driven technique for...
  • 12-13 December 2017, PASSION project partners kick-off meeting at Politecnico di Milano

    PASSION Project: Silicon photonic technology for datacomm

    Photonics is a key enabling technology for the evolution of the entire telecommunications infrastructure, but the technologies used so far for the metro network directly derive from the long-distance transport and they are too...
