New design eliminates need for complex, expensive cooling systems Whether used in telescopes or optoelectronic communications, infrared detectors must be continuously cooled to avoid being overwhelmed by stray thermal radiation. Now, a team of researchers from Peking University, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Duke University (USA) is harnessing the remarkable properties of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) to create highly sensitive, "uncooled" photovoltaic infrared detectors....

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., May 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Hamamatsu Photonics introduces a new streak camera series for UV to near-infrared measurements of extremely fast light phenomena. The C10910 series simultaneously delivers intensity vs. time vs. position (or wavelength) information with single-photon sensitivity and temporal resolution down to 1 ps. With such capabilities, these streak cameras are suitable for measuring fast fluorescence lifetimes, response times of quantum devices, electron...
