Latest Nanophotonics Stories
Recent progress in chalcogenide glass photonics has been driven by scientific and technological challenges in a variety of areas.
ARMONK, N.Y., Dec.
Surface plasmons are quanta of collective oscillations of free electrons at metal-insulator interface, usually excited by photons.
Air Force Office of Scientific Research-funded Professors Mark L. Brongersma of Stanford University and Stefan A. Maier of Imperial College London are investigating new applications for terahertz sensors.
With a bit of leverage, Cornell researchers have used a very tiny beam of light with as little as 1 milliwatt of power to move a silicon structure up to 12 nanometers.
Sensors, communications devices and imaging equipment that use a prism and a special form of light -- a surface plasmon-polariton -- may incorporate multiple channels or redundant applications if manufacturers use sculptured thin films.
Because the new device, called a "spaser," is the first of its kind to emit visible light, it represents a critical component for possible future technologies based on "nanophotonic" circuitry, said Vladimir Shalaev, the Robert and Anne Burnett Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University.
WILMINGTON, Delaware, July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a new market research report, 'Nanophotonics - Advanced Technologies and Global Market (2009-2014)', published by MarketsandMarkets (http://www.marketsandmarkets.com), the global nanophotonics market is expected to be worth US$3.6 billion by 2014, out of which the Asian market will account for nearly 74% of the total revenues.
