Defense & Security

Micro-structures provide unique identifiers for physical objects, and since they can be optically detected with a mobile device, they can be applied in fields from security and forensics to anti-counterfeiting.

1 December 2014
The optical serial coherent analyzer of radio frequency combines aspects of electronic and photonics-assisted devices.
11 November 2014

Microwave photonics enables the transfer of radio frequency signals over optical fibers for mobility and high bandwidth, bridging the gap between wireless applications and photonic technology.

6 November 2014
IR-seeking missiles guided by imaging systems can locate targets even under laser dazzle, enabling them to track and pose a threat to aircraft.
15 October 2014
Simulated test protocols are used to investigate the effectiveness of a novel and non-lethal approach for the degradation of human performance.
