Countless research groups have tried to invent a noninvasive glucose sensor and ultimately failed. Can a new generation of optics technologies provide a path to success?
People with some color-related genetic vision problems now have more options for getting through everyday life.
Recent measurements of electrostriction—a body force term commonly excluded from calculations of electromagnetic force and momentum density—cast new light on a long-standing debate in the history of electrodynamic theory.

Accidental exposure to a single direct or reflected laser beam can cause irreversible damage to the human eye—depending on the wavelength, output and exposure duration.
For laser and optics companies, revenues and net income continue to climb, but soft stock prices reflect widespread investor uncertainty.
At FiO LS 2022, physicist Monika Ritsch-Marte will talk about using spatial light modulators to enable customizable views and deep tissue imaging.
After a brief interruption, Mykola Kabluka and his team at Ukraine-based Expolight are once again finding a way forward with light.
Since the laser’s first demonstration in 1960, scientists have worked to expand the range of wavelengths the devices can emit.
Protecting Earth’s environment is our most important responsibility.
