Photonics professionals face a changing—and challenging—competitive landscape driven not only by emerging technologies.
Latest News
U.S. House Science Committee introduces National Quantum Initiative Reauthorization Act of 2023 to expand critical research funding.
Combining a line laser, SWIR camera, and drone technology provides PV plant operators with a contactless solution to improve their ongoing inspection processes.

A high performance tunable laser with a wide tuning range and an output combining high power and high signal-to-noise ratio. It uses a new optical cavity design with precise speed control up to 200 nm/s and sub-picometer resolution and accuracy.

In this episode, we cover a new microscope that rapidly detects viruses, solar cell inspection with photoluminescence, and how optical coherence tomography (OCT) can study the female reproductive system.
Let’s take a look at some of the tech introductions that are already starting to shape the future of the welding industry.
In Case You Missed It
An achievement in organic solar cell development may transform solar energy and the devices that use it.
By combining nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and computational modeling, researchers explore the role of glass intermediate oxides—often a key ingredient of specialized optical glasses.
A new combination method pairing spectroscopy and EEG could lead to better, more effective treatments for the brain diseases.
Stefan Witte leads the Extreme Ultraviolet Generation group at the Advanced Research Center for Nanolithography in the Netherlands, and unpacks high-harmonic generation in this Q & A tutorial for us.
A chiral quantum light emitter acts as a novel two-fer by generating a stream of single photons and also controlling their polarization state.
The limitations of the timing resolution of state-of-the-art detectors led to a misconception that LiDAR has reached its performance limits and can’t be improved—but Hollie Wright’s work with dual-comb LiDAR proves it can be.

Filters in spectroscopy must perform as a unit to successfully detect signals above the background noise. Raman scattering is a weaker signal requiring high-performance filters with steeper edges, flatter transmission, isolating the signal of interest.

Upcoming Webinar: December 15th
Join us on December 15th at 11 am ET to learn why the work of fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is supported by advocates who empower people and fuel opportunities.
