Light in the nanoworld

A team of international scientists led by Alexander Holleitner and Jonathan Finley, physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), has successfully placed light...

Replacing electricity with light

Researchers are designing a nanoscale photon diode – a necessary component that could bring us closer to faster, more energy-efficient computers and communications that replace electricity with light.

Scientists develop camera to see polarised light

Polarization describes the path along which light’s electric field vector oscillates. An essential quality of electromagnetic radiation, polarization is often omitted in its mathematical...
