With an optoelectronic neuron array device that allows nonlinear transmission of spatially incoherent light, researchers in California are working to address some widespread needs that would make all-optical computing easier and more accessible.

Researchers in Japan have designed an enhanced mid-IR microscope that takes them into a deeper dive than ever before into living bacteria, and aims to offer a better understanding of their internal structures.

The world’s first broadband UV dual-comb spectrometer, developed by researchers in Austria, is making detecting and measuring air pollutants more efficient. This could pave the way for new air quality improvement strategies, as well.
