Tiny Chip-Based Device Performs Ultrafast Modulation of X-Rays
Researchers have developed new x-ray optics that can be used to harness extremely fast pulses in a package that is significantly smaller and lighter than conventional devices used to modulate x-rays. The new optics are based on microscopic chip-based devices known as microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).

Tissue-Integrated Microlasers Used to Measure Contraction in Beating Heart of Zebrafish
At the all-virtual 2021 OSA Biophotonics Congress, researchers will demonstrate that tiny lasers integrated into heart muscle cells or tissue can be used to acquire high-resolution measurements of contractility in heart muscle cells, live zebrafish and living heart tissue at locations several times deeper than other light-based techniques.

Researchers Set New Resolution Record for Imaging the Human Eye
Researchers have developed a noninvasive technique that can capture images of rod and cone photoreceptors with unprecedented detail. The advance could lead to new treatments and earlier detection for retinal diseases such as macular degeneration, a leading cause of vision loss.
