Engineers Invent Method to Control Light Propagation in Waveguides

A new method of controlling light is changing the world of optical communication.

New Method Changes The Way Optical Devices Scatter Light

Researchers at MIT’s Media Lab and Harvard University have discovered that mixing solids and liquids enhances the optical properties of both materials. They found that changing the temperature of a solid-liquid mixture dramatically alters the way that light is diffused. The researchers also built a computer model that can be used to design custom liquid-solid mixtures for specific purposes.

Researchers Build First Quantum Cascade Laser

For the first time, researchers have built a quantum cascade laser (QCL) on silicon....

Researchers Develop High-Performance Flexible Optical Devices

University of Delaware researchers developed a method to produce high-performance, flexible optical devices using chalcogenide glass and polymers. This new method produced the lowest optical loss ever recorded, close to an order of magnitude below other flexible optical devices.
