The eye of the peacock mantis shrimp has led an international team of researchers to develop a two-part waveplate that could improve CD, DVD, blu-ray and holographic technology, creating even higher definition and larger storage density.
Researchers in Britain and Denmark have unveiled an â€˜invisibility cloakâ€™ that uses a common crystalline material known as calcite, which works by sending its two "polarizations" of light in different directions.
For many years, researchers have looked to develop organic materials as a reliable and cost effective replacement for inorganic materials in optical devices. The development of highly functionalized optical devices using photonics instead of optoelectronics has highlighted the need for greater control over the manipulation of optical signals.
