A team of Northwestern University researchers have developed a laser that they claim creates the purest, brightest, and most powerful beam ever developed for use in standoff sensing applications.
Recent breakthroughs have enabled scientists from the Northwestern University’s Center for Quantum Devices to build cameras that can see more than one optical waveband or “color” in the dark.
Researchers at Northwestern University have developed a simpler way to generate single-chip terahertz radiation, a discovery that could soon allow for more rapid security screening, border protection, high sensitivity biological/chemical analysis, agricultural inspection, and astronomical applications.
Northwestern University researchers have developed compact, mid-infrared laser diodes that generate more light than heat â€” a breakthroughs in quantum cascade laser efficiency.
Northwestern University researchers have achieved a breakthrough in quantum cascade laser output power, delivering 120 watts from a single device at room temperature.
New technology developed at Northwestern University has the potential for broad application in the detection of terrorist activities such as missile attacks on U.S. troops. Scientists at the Center for Quantum Devices have demonstrated, for the first time, uncooled infrared imaging using type-II superlattice technology. This significant development could lead to smaller, faster and less expensive hand-held infrared imaging devices.
The difficulty of detecting the presence of explosives and chemical warfare agents (CWAs) is once again all too apparent in the news about the London bombings.
