Tue 01-07-2014 Google's Cardboard Virtual Reality Kit
What do you need for a virtual reality experience? You need one image going into one eye and a different image going into the other – it would be good if the images changed once in a while – and that is basically it. Google Cardboard brings that to you with only a smartphone, a couple of lenses, and cardboard (and some magnets and rubber bands).

Tue 17-06-2014 Quantum Cascade Laser at the Heart of Spectrometer on a Chip
Mid-infrared spectrometry can assist chemical sensing, environmental monitoring, and disease diagnosis. Conventional mid-infrared spectrometers are highly developed, but sometimes bulky, assemblies: a broadband thermal emitter, an interferometer, a separate broadband detector, external optics, and a sample cell, feeding in to Fourier-transform analyzer to break the signal down and analyze absorption at a variety of frequencies.

Wed 11-06-2014 Laser Device Can Detect Alcohol In Cars
The article "Stand-off detection of alcohol in car cabins," by Jarosław Młyńczak, Jan Kubicki, and Krzysztof Kopczyński of the Military University of Technology in Warsaw, Poland, details experiments using an external laser device to detect the presence of alcohol vapors inside of a moving car. The device was constructed at the university\'s Institute of Optoelectronics based on previous research from a 2013 paper by the same authors.

Mon 19-05-2014 Personalereduktioner på DTU Fotonik
Direktør Lars-Ulrik Aaen Andersen har den 29'ende april orienteret Samarbejdsudvalget om en forestående justering af instituttets økonomi, som desværre vil omfatte personalereduktioner (dette berører ikke ph.d.-studerende). På efterfølgende medarbejdermøder blev der ligeledes orienteret herom.

Instituttet har kørt med underskud på basis af de seneste to år, hvilket blandt andet har betydet, at institutkapitalen nu er væsentligt reduceret. På grund af dette og faldende ekstern funding, samt ønsket om fortsat økonomisk råderum, må instituttet iværksætte besparelser.

Sun 18-05-2014 Combining Light and Sound For Accurate, Painless 3-D Mammograms
Breast cancer screening today requires exposure to X-ray radiation. The X-ray images are difficult to interpret, causing anxiety-inducing false alarms and extensive follow-up tests that include biopsies. Besides, getting a mammogram is quite literally a pain, requiring an uncomfortable compression of the breast tissue.
