Optical Amplifiers

The transmission loss of the light passing through the optical fiber is a very small value of less than 0.2 dB per km with a light wavelength in the 1,550 nm band. Therefore clearest optical fibers can transmit signals more than 100 kilometers without amplification-much farther than copper wires. When …

Optical Science and Engineering

Optics is the branch of physics that studies the behaviour and properties of light, including its interactions with matter and the construction of instruments that use or detect it. Optics usually describes the behaviour of visible, ultraviolet, and infrared light. Because light is an electromagnetic wave, other forms of electromagnetic …

Superresolution imaging

For centuries, light microscopy has greatly facilitated our understanding of how cells function. In fact, entire fields of biology have emerged from images acquired under light microscopes. Indeed, one major element that makes light microscopy so powerful in biological research is the development of various staining methods that permit the …

Miniaturized Spectrometer

In the broadest sense a spectrometer is any instrument that is used to measure the variation of a physical characteristic over a given range; i.e. a spectrum. This could be a mass-to-charge ratio spectrum in the case of a mass spectrometer, the variation of nuclear resonant frequencies in an NMR …

Compound semiconductors for 5G, radar, electronic warfare, aviation, and satellite communication applications

Modern electronic products, from computers to smart phones, use silicon chips at their heart. As the name suggests, these chips are made from silicon, which is a highly abundant element found in sand. With a single element, it is possible to scale-up the manufacturing process to make highly complex silicon chips …
