    High-Performance Photovoltaic Cells That Work Indoors

    Swedish and Chinese scientists have developed organic solar cells optimized to convert ambient indoor light to electricity. The power they produce is low, but is probably enough to feed the millions of products that the internet...
  • An erbium atom red in a nanocrystal emits visible, green light via a process known as upconversion that could lead to the development of improved solar cells that capture some previously missed solar energy Scientists discovered that coating the particles

    3D-printed Microvalve for Treating Glaucoma

    Glaucoma is the world’s second cause of irreversible blindness after cataracts. The World Health Organization estimates that 4.5 million people worldwide are blind due to glaucoma [1]. In some cases, glaucoma is a condition caused by...

    Microscopes Unravel the Mysteries of Brain Organization

    The secret of capturing exquisite brain images with a new generation of custom-built microscopes is revealed today in Nature Methods. The new microscopes, known as mesoSPIMs, can image the minute detail of brain tissue down to individual...
  • Researchers developed a two-part security feature that allows dynamic and reversible decryption The figure illustrates an encrypted star pattern generated by raising the dielectric SiO2 layer by 10 nm The star pattern is revealed when a thin-metal-coated

    Metamaterials to Create Two-Part Optical Security Features

    Researchers have developed advanced optical security features that use a two-piece metamaterial system to create a difficult-to-replicate optical phenomenon. Metamaterials are engineered to have a property that is not found in naturally occurring...

    Holograms That Can Measure Polarization of Light

    For the first time, researchers have used ultra-thin layers of 2D structures known as metasurfaces to create holograms that can measure the polarization of light. The new metasurface holograms could be used to create very fast and compact devices...
