In this episode of Photonics Hot List...
A new technique by a team in Japan converts UV to red light…it’s accelerating plant growth, enhancing the photosynthesis process, and boosting biomass. Learn how a europium-based thin-film coating is helping.
Photons could double as quantum systems someday. A new programmable, all-optical buffer quantum memory—the first of its kind—could help bring that idea to fruition. Discover ways researchers in Germany are addressing challenges, including scalability, that currently hamper such quantum advancement.
Imagine being able to 3D print microscale objects in the blink of an eye. It’s possible, thanks to a new method that pairs a special resin with a unique 3D printing system. Explore how this could change the face of 3D printing as we know it.
