Mon 31-03-2014 9 Earth-Imaging Start-ups to Watch
A tech boom will shake up commercial satellite imaging.

Words like provocative, disruptive, and game-changing are rarely applied to the staid world of satellite imaging. But that’s exactly the kind of talk the industry is generating, with the successful launches of more than two dozen Earth-imaging satellites in the last few months and the planned launches of yet more by year's end.

Mon 31-03-2014 Imaging Single Photons from a Kilometer Away
Scientists in Scotland have developed an imaging technique that can capture 3-D information of single photons at distances of a kilometer, adding to the remarkable progress of single-photon detectors in the past decade.

Mon 31-03-2014 Novel optical fibers transmit high-quality images
After having recently discovered a new way to propagate multiple beams of light through a single strand of optical fiber, engineers at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) now have found that their novel fiber architecture can transmit images with a quality that is comparable or better than the current commercial endoscopy imaging fibers.

Wed 12-03-2014 Laser beam from the Moon to Earth
By the time the signal is analysed by scientists at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR), it will have travelled roughly 400,000 kilometres and passed through Earths atmosphere. They discover that: "The atmosphere has a less pronounced influence than expected; the signal quality is very good," says Dirk Giggenbach from the DLR Institute of Communications and Navigation.

Thu 06-03-2014 Ny teknik omdanner radiobølger til lyssignaler
Forskere fra DTU og Niels Bohr Instituttet har udviklet en ny banebrydende teknik, der gør det muligt at spore selv meget svage radiosignaler. Teknikken kan få stor betydning for at modtage bedre signaler til brug for medicinsk billedbehandling, astronomi, navigation og kommunikation.

Sun 16-02-2014 Conference Call: LALS 2014
It is our great pleasure to invite you for LALS-2014 which will take place from June 29th to July 2nd in “Edwin Scharff Haus” conference center at Ulm/Neu Ulm (Germany) on the banks of the Danube river. The conference will start with a German-Russian satellite symposium on clinical laser applications, organized in cooperation with the 21st Annual Meeting of the German Society of Laser Medicine (DGLM e.V.).

In this conference some of the most outstanding scientists in the field of biophotonics take part as plenary speakers, session chairs, or invited speakers. This will create a stimulating atmosphere for presentations and discussions.

For detailed information please visit the conference website http://lals2014.ilm-ulm.de

Wed 12-02-2014 Lockheed Martin Shows Off High-Power Fiber Laser Weapon
The US military dreams of a small but powerful laser weapon that can zap enemy rockets and drones from a safe distance. But weapons that have been demonstrated so far have been too big and heavy to fit on-board humvees and fighter jets. They’re also notoriously difficult to cool.

So key players in the defense industry have turned to fiber lasers to make the military\'s dream a reality.
