The electronics world dependent on lasers

Lasers are ever-increasing their presence in the electronics world; advancing the manufacturing technology and enabling miniaturisation. It is due to the laser’s precise machining that guarantees quality for microscopic structures enabling smaller electronics than conventional methods. As the laser market continues to develop, this opens new applications within electronics world. One of the key area […]

Brain-like computing

Computers could soon function like a human brain. New research published in Advanced Optical Materials shows the possibility of optical computers with the ability to learn. The Photonics Institute (TPI) reproduced neural networks and synapses like those in the brain, using light-sensitive glass fibres. The team simulated neural resting state before mimicking the nerve firing […]

The Chameleon-like material sensation

Scientists at UC Berkeley have created a Chameleon-like material that can change colour when stretched. The super thin silicon, is marked with patterns of ridges to reflect light in a certain way. As the material is stretched the ridges stretch and reflect a different wavelength of light thus reflect a different colour in the process. […]

3-D X-ray images ‘Giant Virus’

The new developments of a unique X-ray laser has enabled the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory to image an infectious virus intact. Mimivirus, the name of the ‘giant virus’ was imaged and with the ability to reconstruct 3-D structures of live samples, scientists can learn more about the virus’ origins. The experiment involves […]

Atomic Clocks, the potential for exploration of the universe

The most precise clocks in the world have the potential to become more accurate. They work by creating a ‘pendulum’ using stabilised laser light to enable electrons to jump from one obit to another and then fall back down. Researchers from Niels Bohr Institute have developed a noise reduction method to increase the precision of […]
