Thu 07-08-2014 DOPS Annual Meeting 2014
Register now for DOPS Annual Meeting 2014!

Two days where you can get updated on the latest research activities and products within optics and photonics in Denmark. Everyone within the field are invited, and it is an unique opportunity to network with new and old contacts.

Submit your research for an oral presentations of 15 minutes or a poster presentation. Send your one page summary including an abstract of maximum 40 words to Steen Grüner Hanson, chairman of the technical committee, at vsgh@fotonik.dtu.dk. Please note one of the three options in the submission; 1: Oral only, 2: Poster only, 3: Oral preferred, poster acceptable.

View the program here, and see all the invited speakers, which include Prof. Roy Tayler, Prof. Søren Rud Keiding, and Prof. Em. Holger Bech Nielsen.

Submission due date: October 1st.

Registration due date: November 1st.

Accommodation opportunities can be found here. Exhibitors can contact Finn Mengel at fml@mengelengineering.dk for registration.

Wed 17-09-2014 Danskere slår vild lys-rekord
Danske forskere har slået verdensrekorden i at skubbe lys ud i det såkaldte infrarøde bølgelængdeområde gennem en optisk fiber. Deres laserteknik kan bl.a. bruges til at diagnosticere cancer og kontrollere fødevarers kvalitet.

Tue 09-09-2014 Breakthrough in light sources for new quantum technology
One of the most promising technologies for future quantum circuits are photonic circuits, i.e. circuits based on light (photons) instead of electrons (electronic circuits). First, it is necessary to create a stream of single photons and control their direction. Researchers have now succeeded in creating a steady stream of photons emitted one at a time and in a particular direction.

Thu 04-09-2014 Laser Pulse Turns Glass Into A Metal
For tiny fractions of a second, quartz glass can take on metallic properties, when it is illuminated be a laser pulse. This has been shown by calculations at the Vienna University of Technology. The effect could be used to build logical switches which are much faster than today's microelectronics.

Tue 02-09-2014 Quantum imaging with undetected photons
Researchers used a quantum entanglement camera to image a cat etched on a piece of silicon. Photons that interact with the silicon are not used to form the image directly. The photons are entangled to other photons in a different wavelength, and these are detected to form the image instead (article available at nature.com ).

In other words, the image is obtained by detecting only photons that never interact with the silicon. There are two images above (dark and light cat) because the camera relies on destructive and constructive quantum interference, producing both a positive and negative image.

Wed 20-08-2014 Accurate timing control through new detector option in FREEDOM
The new detector option enables short integration time down to 10 µsec as well as accurate synchronization control for external triggering. These factors are especially useful for applications like LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) with short pulsed emission events.
