Researchers Exploit Optical Frequency Comb Sources on a Silicon Chip for Data Transmission in the Terabit Range
Soliton water waves can travel several kilometers without any significant change in their shape or amplitude, as opposed to normal waves, which widen as they travel, and eventually disappear.
Development of electronics and communication requires a hardware base capable for increasingly larger precision, ergonomics and throughput.
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, together with researchers at the Polish Wroclaw University of Technology, have made a discovery that may lead to the curing of diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (the so called mad cow disease) through photo therapy.
Researchers at the University of Rochester and the University of Ottawa have applied a recently developed technique to directly measure for the first time the polarization states of light.
Found in flat screens, solar modules, or in new organic light-emitting diode (LED) displays, transparent electrodes have become ubiquitous.
How can solar energy be stored so that it can be available any time, day or night, when the sun shining or not?
A research team from the University of Bristol's Centre for Quantum Photonics (CQP) have brought the reality of a quantum computer one step closer by experimentally demonstrating a technique for significantly reducing the physical resources required for quantum factoring.
Columbia Engineering pioneers ultralow-power optical information processing and frequency generation in graphene-silicon photonic circuits
Taking their cue from the humble leaf, researchers have used microscopic folds on the surface of photovoltaic material to significantly increase the power output of flexible, low-cost solar cells.
Nature Photonics is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 2007 and published monthly by the Nature Publishing Group. As with other Nature journals, this periodical has no external Editorial Board with editorial decisions made by a fully-functioning in-house team. The journal covers research related to optoelectronics, laser science, imaging, communications, and other aspects of photonics. It publishes review articles, research papers, news and commentary, and research...
