Optoelectronics technology trends and market

Optoelectronic technology is a new technology formed by the combination of photon technology and electronic technology. Optoelectronics is the study and application of light-emitting or light-detecting devices. It is widely considered a sub-discipline of photonics. Optoelectronics is  described as “a device that responds to optical power, emits or modifies optical …

Flat lenses enabled by Nanotechnology to replace lenses in devices, from microscopes to displays and cameras in cell phones

A classical lens made of plastic or glass has a curved shape that bends the path of incoming light toward a single focal point on a piece of photographic film or an electronic sensor. This is because light travels faster through the thinner glass at the edges of the lens …

DARPA FENCE Event-based imagers or neuromorphic camera

An event camera, also known as a neuromorphic camera, silicon retina or dynamic vision sensor, is an imaging sensor that responds to local changes in brightness.  Event cameras do not capture images using a shutter as conventional cameras do. Instead, each pixel inside an event camera operates independently and asynchronously, …

Fiber Optics transmission system and component technologies for Rising Internet traffic

Optical communications make use of light waves, very high frequency (100 terahertz) electromagnetic waves, for information transmission. Modern optical communications were begun in the 1960s, when lasers were invented as a coherent light source. Since then, the rapid development of photonic technologies has made possible optical communication links with a …

3-D holograms will be employed for battlefield intelligence, military planning and explosives disposal

We see things because our eyes are sophisticated light detectors: they constantly capture the light rays bouncing off nearby objects so our brain can construct an ever-changing impression of the world around us. When our eyes see a three-dimensional image such as apple, Light reflects off the surface of the apple …
