In this episode: On-chip tech revolutionizes cell therapy, quantum inertial navigation could replace GPS, and edge computing gets a boost from imaging tech.

In this episode of Photonics Hot List:

Cell therapy and cell manufacturing are both very promising approaches to the battle against diseases—cancer, in particular. Now, these treatments are getting a boost from recent advancements in on-chip flow cytometry that uses photonic integrated circuits and fluidics.
 
A backup, and potential replacement, for GPS technology is poised to provide military operations with more effective and precise navigation. The new setup involves quantum-mechanical sensors as inertial navigators, as part of a 3D-cooled atom beam interferometer.
 
A photonic sensing-computing chip could hold the key to ultrafast machine vision and imaging. The new chip both captures and examines images, potentially for use in applications like autonomous driving and industrial inspection. It could also revolutionize edge intelligence systems.
