What is a laser? What makes laser light different from “ordinary” light? What can you do with a laser besides tease a cat? We’ll answer these questions with slides, videos and simple demonstrations you can do at home.
This webinar features Philip Russell, Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, discussing photonic crystal fibre and its large range of applications.
Lilian Childress, McGill University, discusses the benefits and challenges to open micro-cavities, progress toward coupling them to diamond defect centers, and the development of an actively stabilized cryogenic system.
This webinar will cover advancements made in active optics toward fast focus and zoom, and the lessons learned along the way as Dr. Lukes transitioned from a PhD student to an entrepreneur.
There are numerous applications on Human Activity Recognition, however, the healthcare, elderly support and related applications become more important arenas with huge repercussions. This webinar explores different applications.
Francisco Rodrigues, PICadvanced, Portugal presents his story of going from PhD to CEO in the first of the series, "From PhD to CEO: Making the Exciting Leap into Business."
Hear a framework for comparing/predicting the performance of indicator/imaging system combinations, as well as efforts to boost photon budgets for membrane potential and calcium imaging with multi-focal two-photon and light-field imaging systems.
his presentation went over the various techniques used to measure the optical performance of the grism component of the Wide Field Instrument on board the Roman Space Telescope.
Silicon Photonics has become a mainstream technology for high volume, low-cost manufacturing of photonics devices and integrated circuits. John Bowers gives an overview of recent research in the area and prospects for future results.
Aaswath Raman (UCLA) introduces the fundamentals of radiative cooling, including understanding the atmospheric phenomena that enable it and the spectral requirements it imposes on thermal emitters.
