Wearable technology is booming, powered by photonics

Wearable devices are rapidly advancing in terms of technology, functionality and size, with more real-time applications. The disruption has already begun in health monitoring.

Speckle imaging, an older technique for obtaining diffraction-limited resolution with large telescopes, is back in a big way thanks to electron-multiplying CCDs.

A photoactivated technique targets tumor cells and simultaneously triggers the release of inhibitors at ‘ the right time and place’ to block the mechanisms that enable some cancers to escape treatment.
24 June 2016
An ultrastable spectrophotometry method can be used to mitigate the effects of telescope pointing jitter and primary mirror deformation.
22 June 2016
Early results from the MeerKAT radio telescope project are providing guidance for scientific research enterprises, including the Square Kilometre Array telescope ‘megaproject.’
21 June 2016
Image formation based on computation and aberrated optical design provides a promising approach for volumetric imaging studies of biological dynamics at cellular and sub-cellular resolution.
20 June 2016
National Photonics Initiative calls for laser weapons strategy
US-focused interest group wants more development cash and ‘intelligent protection’ for critical technologies used in high-power lasers.
24 June 2016
Solar Impulse 2 completes transatlantic flight
First non-stop flight over the Atlantic Ocean powered by photovoltaic cells is completed in just over 71 hours.
