Video: June 23, 2023 Photonics Hot List

June 23, 2023
Here’s your Photonics Hot List for June 23, 2023, covering thermal imaging that enhances military simulations, meta-optics poised to advance endoscopes, and a way to link free-space optics and integrated photonics.

In this episode of Photonics Hot List...

Highly realistic simulation programs for military training just got even more sophisticated, with a unique physics-based thermal imaging infrared feature created by Bohemia Interactive Simulations.

Paired with a coherent optical fiber bundle, meta-optics are poised to transform surgical procedures. Development of a new endoscope by a team at the University of Washington could allow access to regions in the body not currently reachable with conventional systems.

Researchers at Columbia University have figured out how to finally link the realms of free-space optics and integrated photonics, ultimately developing a class of nanophotonic devices based on leaky-wave metasurfaces.
