In this episode, we cover how spectroscopy can authenticate sugar cane, a surprising discovery in optoacoustics and fiber optics, and pseudogravity in photonic crystal lattice distortion.

In this episode of Photonics Hot List...

Sugar production is among the largest industries worldwide. So it’s crucial to ensure its authenticity. With that in mind, researchers in Turkey are using spectroscopy to analyze and validate different types of sugar and their sucrose levels.

While exploring how light and sound waves monitor the thermodynamic behavior of completely sealed liquid-core optical fibers, a team of researchers in Germany have made some surprising discoveries in the realms of optoacoustics and fiber optics.

Citing significant implications for advances in areas like 6G communications, a team in Japan has figured out how to control the light behavior of photonic crystals, essentially producing pseudogravity effects in photonic crystal lattice distortion.
