Practical New Approach To Holographic Video: MIT
2013-06-20 05:17:32

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists are reporting in the journal Nature that they have developed a new approach that could lead to cheaper, color holographic-video displays. Researchers are using this new technique to build a prototype color holographic-video display with a resolution similar to that of a standard-definition TV that can update video images 30 times a second. The heart of the display features an optical chip that resembles a microscopic slide....

Antenna-on-a-chip Designed For Fast Manipulation Of Incident Infrared Light
2012-11-16 17:06:48

Rice University A device that looks like a tiny washboard may clean the clocks of current commercial products used to manipulate infrared light. New research by the Rice University lab of Qianfan Xu has produced a micron-scale spatial light modulator (SLM) like those used in sensing and imaging devices, but with the potential to run orders of magnitude faster. Unlike other devices in two-dimensional semiconducting chips, the Rice chips work in three-dimensional "free space." Xu and...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists at Israel's Weizmann Institute of Science reporting in the journal Nature Photonics said they have found a way to send images of light around corners. By shining light from a normal lamp through a highly scattering plastic film, the team was able to show-off exactly what they could do with spatial light modulators (SLMs). "The ability to image through inhomogeneous media is extremely valuable in numerous applications,...

Berkeley Lab Researchers Develop Technique for Dynamically Controlling Plasmonic Airy Beams One of the earliest lessons in science that students learn is that a ray or beam of light travels in a straight line. Students also learn that light rays fan out or diffract as they travel. Recently it was discovered that light rays can travel without diffraction in a curved arc in free space. These rays of light were dubbed "Airy beams," after the English astronomer Sir George Biddell Airy, who...
