Latest Nature Photonics Stories
By combining advanced laser technologies in a new way, physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have generated microwave signals that are more pure and stable than those from conventional electronic sources.
In a paper published in Nature Photonics, U of T Engineering researchers report a new solar cell that may pave the way to inexpensive coatings that efficiently convert the sun's rays to electricity.
A new generation of high speed, silicon-based information technology has been brought a step closer by researchers in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at UCL and the London Centre for Nanotechnology.
Two researchers working for Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital have developed a laser from a single living cell, by engineering it to produce a light-emitting protein that was first obtained from glowing jellyfish.
Researchers report in Nature Photonics that they have set a new record of 26 terabits of data per second for the rate of data transfer using a single laser.
An ultrasound guide star and time-reversal mirror can focus light deep under the skin, a game-changing improvement in biomedical imaging technology.
Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, have found a way to grow nanolasers directly onto a silicon surface, an achievement that could lead to a new class of faster, more efficient microprocessors, as well as to powerful biochemical sensors that use optoelectronic chips.
Combined optic and electronic technology holds promise for new nanoscale sensing devices.
Love, exercise and, new research shows, an infrared laser can make a heart beat faster.
TAU scientists explore a new method for curving "Airy" light beams.
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...
