Ultraviolet technology has been used throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to disinfect surfaces and the air. Now, a deep-ultraviolet solid-state light source is taking this even further, as researchers move to eradicate the coronavirus and its variants.
Efforts to make sensing and detecting capabilities in autonomous vehicles as perceptive as possible are ongoing. Digital holography has emerged as a way to help—specifically, a new holographic imaging setup that has already improved visibility through driving conditions including fog.
Delving into some of the unknowns relating to photosynthesis, particularly at the molecular level, scientists have found some answers in single-photon detection and a technique they’re calling quantum light spectroscopy.
