Imagine being able to instantaneously run an optical cable or fiber to any point on earth, or even into space. In a new study, researchers report using an “air waveguide” to enhance light signals collected from distant sources; the waveguides could have many applications, including long-range laser communications, detecting pollution in the atmosphere, making high-resolution topographic maps and laser weapons. College Park, MD (PRWEB) July 22, 2014 Imagine being able to...

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers have developed a new technology that in the future could provide greater security for mobile phones and allow handsets to track a user's biometrics all from the screen. The smartphone display could be embedded with layer upon layer of sensors, and these could track one's temperature, assess blood sugar levels for those who are diabetic, and even analyze DNA. The same technology could make it harder for a phone to be cloned....

First Circuit With Stretchable Optical Interconnections Built By Belgian Researchers
2014-02-18 12:50:15

The Optical Society For futuristic applications like wearable body sensors and robotic skin, researchers need to ferry information along flexible routes. Electronics that bend and stretch have become possible in recent years, but similar work in the field of optics – communicating with light instead of electrons – has lagged behind. Particularly difficult to engineer have been optics that stretch, lengthening when someone wearing body sensors bends to tie their shoe, or when a robotic...
