Efficiency beyond spin-statistics in polymer-based hybrid LEDs
Organic LEDs with photonic structures incorporating zinc oxide and a polyfluorene derivative as cathode and emissive layers, respectively, lead to high efficiencies and electrically-driven lasing capabilities.
Coherent arrays of fiber lasers appear scalable to weapons-class (100kW) powers with near-perfect beam quality in rugged and compact packages.
12 September 2014
A resonantly-pumped, tunable, Q-switched holmium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet ceramic laser generates high energy and high beam quality in the 2μm region.
11 September 2014
Water/alcohol-soluble conjugated polymers can greatly improve photovoltaic efficiency.
11 September 2014
New up-conversion interferometers use sum-frequency generation processes and allow efficient analyses at IR and visible wavelengths.
9 September 2014
Despite improvements in performance, as yet no face-tracking algorithm is capable of simultaneously tracking and identifying a relatively large number of faces in high-resolution video frames in real time.
8 September 2014
Emitter based on insect eye shines new light
Bio-insipred design could lead to novel emitters and sensors.
11 September 2014
JDSU to be split into two public companies
Stand-alone companies to focus on optical components and next-gen networks, respectively.
11 September 2014
Global photonics market valued at more than $150bn
