Researchers Create Light-trapping Nanostructure Using Genetic-inspired Approach
2014-06-16 03:26:13

University of Rochester Physicists at the University of Rochester have created a silicon nanocavity that allows light to be trapped longer than in other similarly-sized optical cavities. An innovative design approach, which mimics evolutionary biology, allowed them to achieve a 10-fold improvement on the performance of previous nanocavities. In a paper published in Applied Physics Letters today and featured on the cover, the scientists demonstrate they have confined light in a...

Tsukuba, Japan, Mar 12, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - In 1990, scientists reported that nanostructured silicon can emit visible light. This report opened a new frontier for photoelectronics in information technology, called "silicon photonics". Furthermore, the continuous tuning of electromagnetic emission from near-UV to near-infrared wavelengths has been achieved by controlling silicon nanostructures. The quantum yield (QY) of this radiation may exceed 70%, and the use of silicon as the emitting...

New Hologram Technology Created Using Tiny Nanoantennas
2013-11-15 10:27:00

Purdue University Researchers have created tiny holograms using a "metasurface" capable of the ultra-efficient control of light, representing a potential new technology for advanced sensors, high-resolution displays and information processing. The metasurface, thousands of V-shaped nanoantennas formed into an ultrathin gold foil, could make possible "planar photonics" devices and optical switches small enough to be integrated into computer chips for information processing, sensing and...

Night Vision Coating Can Be Applied To Regular Glasses
2012-12-17 08:53:00

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Nanophotonics strikes again, making it possible to add the power of night vision to any regular pair of glasses. This new technology is being developed by a team at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) in Beersheba, Israel and is said to be only one-micron thick. The Israel National Nanotechnology Institute is even interested in this new technology and has offered a $6.5 million grant to BGU and other teams to create...
