As we get set to embark on a new year, we wanted to take some time to highlight a few of the extra amazing things that have happened in photonics during 2023.

In this episode of Photonics Hot List, we wanted to take some time to highlight a few of the extra amazing things that have happened in photonics during 2023. 

From Feb. 13—Collaborating with MIT’s Lincoln Lab, a team in Michigan is engineering photonic fibers that act as invisible sorting labels. Discover how this could help make the recycling of clothing and textiles easier.

From June 23—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.

From Sept. 29—A new green laser is breaking global records, thanks to the groundbreaking coherent beam combining approach. And the Jerusalem-based team of researchers who developed it says the technology’s performance and efficiency are unmatched by its traditional counterparts.
