The world’s largest and most energetic laser fired with 2.15 megajoules (MJ) of energy – more than 10 % higher than the previous energy record set in March 2012.
Combining the state-of-the-art in photonic crystals, shape memory polymers, and electroactive polymers in a single nanocomposite makes for a zero-energy rewritable paper suitable for long term data storage.
A German team of scientists published an overview on all the most recent knowledge on the role of the ultraviolet radiation in eye health and its aging process.
Australian researchers present a divergent synthesis of ruthenium alkynyl dendrimers displaying an NLO dendritic effect.
From invisibility cloaks to metatronics – metamaterials might offer a wealth of innovative applications. Prerequisite are 3D metamaterials working in the THz region. Latest developments could initiate a further upswing for this strange seeming kind of matter.
The fabrication of dye-doped cross-linked rubbery nanoparticles with light upconversion properties even at relatively low power densities has been reported by a Swiss/American research team.
Scientists probe the optoelectric behaviour of bismuth ferrite at the nanoscale and propose a novel ferroelectric-based memory application.
Scientists discovered regular distributions of cystoliths occurs in plant leafs that enhance light-aborbing efficiency.
An elegant technique for self-assembling microlasers from droplets is reported in Advanced Optical Materials.
Researchers from the University of Cambridge, UK report the fabrication of a truly 3D metamaterial using self-assembly.
By using microwave CVD, high quality, single crystal diamond membranes have been epitaxially grown. The resulting material exhibits bright luminescence and good electron spin coherences times, suitable for application in quantum computing.
Researchers at Oregon State University have discovered a way to make a new metamaterial that might accomplish negative refraction of light.
Issue 1 of Advanced Optical Materials features twelve papers from leading research groups, covering all aspects of light–matter interactions.
