Using ultrafast beams of extreme ultraviolet light streaming at a 100,000 times a second, researchers from the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany, have pushed the boundaries of a well-established imaging technique. The new approach could be used to study everything from semiconductor chips to cancer cells.

Modern digital cameras are equipped with an impressive array of functions – from autofocus and image stabilization to panoramas and high-definition video. Recently a team of engineers from Duke University has unlocked a previously unrecognized 3D imaging capability of modern cameras by simply repurposing its existing components.

IYL2015 is a global initiative adopted by the United Nations to raise awareness of how optical technologies promote sustainable development and provide solutions to worldwide challenges in energy, education, agriculture, communications and health.

The National Science Foundation and six U.S.-based global scientific societies, including The Optical Society, hosted “Light for a Better World: A Celebration of U.S. Innovation” at the National Academy of Sciences on Saturday, September 12, 2015.

The Optical Society (OSA) is pleased to announce that the Logic Analysis Tool (LAT) team is the winner of the 2015 Paul F. Forman Team Engineering Excellence Award. The team has developed an optics-based LAT that detects the time resolved emission of light from switching transistors within integrated circuits, operating down to .5V, thus creating a new tool for device analysis in advanced process technologies.
