Invisibility a Reality?

Scientists say they are a step closer to developing materials that could render people and objects invisible.

IBM Advances the Use of Light Instead of Wires for Chips

IBM researchers from the T.J. Watson Research Center reached a significant milestone in the quest to send information between the "brains" on a chip using pulses of light through silicon instead of electrical signals on copper wires.

Harnessing the Power of Light in Many New Ways

The photonics group has led the way in developing photonic crystal fibres, pioneered by Professor Philip Russell in 1991 and now a major new area within physics. These optical fibres are able to harness the power of light in many new ways, enhancing existing applications and leading to many new ones. The work is expected to have a major impact in many areas of engineering and technology, including light sources, optical telecommunications, ultra-violet light and x-ray generation, atomic and quantum physics and astronomical imaging.

Using Laser to Freeze Vibrations in an Experimental Oscillator

The Light Engine from Lumencor

Lumencor was formed to design lighting technology for life science applications. Claudia Jaffe from Lumencor introduces us to their Light Engine which is an all-in-one device that combines: power; durability; discreetness, spectral cleanliness; long life; cool operating temperature; small footprint and; cost effectiveness.

"Cloaking Device" Concept Moves Beyond Theory

A team led by scientists at Duke University's Pratt School of Engineering has demonstrated the first working "invisibility cloak." The cloak deflects microwave beams so they flow around a "hidden" object inside with little distortion, making it appear almost as if nothing were there at all.

Technology for Forming Thin, Lightweight, Bendable Displays

At nano tech 2009, technology for forming thin, lightweight, bendable displays was presented, from the NEDO project on "Technological Development of Super-Flexible Display Components." Most ordinary semiconductor devices are made using vacuum processes such as deposition. For example, liquid crystal displays are made by forming arrays of color filters and transistors on a glass substrate.
