Researchers use temporal analog of a spatial lens to integrate an ultrafast source onto a lithium niobate chip.
Now in its 40th year, OPN’s annual feature highlights some of the most interesting research in optics and photonics published in recent months.
Congratulations to the winners of OPN’s 17th annual After Image photo contest.
We asked several contributors to our “Optics in 2022” feature for thoughts on areas that might advance in 2023.
German initiative reportedly demonstrates approach that enables cost-effective laser additive manufacturing in “medium batch sizes.”
Krypton clusters are irradiated by a high-power, few-cycle laser to produce soft X-rays, emitted in all directions.
Researchers build a 2-m-tall cryostat to evaluate a detector’s optical response in cryogenic environment.
Early-stage firm Ganvix will team up with semiconductor manufacturing specialist BluGlass to develop GaN VCSELs that emit at 515-nm-to-525-nm wavelengths.
A prototype enables fast, high-resolution 3D imaging that is less damaging to live cells.
