FARMINGTON, Conn., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Having spent nearly a century in relative obscurity, the market is finally beginning to embrace photonic crystal technology. An unwillingness and apprehension to exploring alternatives to well-oiled and well-established fabrication processes have kept large-scale commercialization of photonic crystals and photonic circuitry at bay. Most of these conventional processes, however, are facing the ends of their growth cycle, having reached...

Jedidiah Becker for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Color is all around us - from painted buildings, to stop signs, to butterfly wings. Traditionally, colorful compounds, called pigments, are added to material to give them the desired color. However, color can often fade and is susceptible to damage from environmental conditions, like rain. A more novel way to create color is to synthesize polymers to create surface types and colors for specific applications. However, creating...

Research could lead to the development of enhanced bio-sensors for healthcare and more efficient solar cells and displays Researchers at King's College London, in collaboration with European research institutes ICFO (Barcelona) and AMOLF (Amsterdam), have succeeded in mapping how light behaves in complex photonic materials inspired by nature, like iridescent butterfly wings. Scientists have broken the limit of light resolution at the nanoscale and delivered a fundamental insight into how...

Printed Photonic Crystal Mirrors Shrink Down To Size On-Chip Lasers
2012-07-23 09:18:30

Electrical engineers at The University of Texas at Arlington and at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have devised a new laser for on-chip optical connections that could give computers a huge boost in speed and energy efficiency. The team published its findings on July 22, 2012 in Nature Photonics. At just 2 micrometers in height – smaller than the width of a human hair – the surface-emitting laser's vastly lower profile could make it cheaper and easier for manufacturers...
