Mon 28-07-2014 Ph.D. position offer: Ultrafast Laser Inscription in infrared materials for Astrophotonics
The Institute of Applied Physics at the University of Jena offers one Ph.D. scholarship in the frame of the project ALSI (Advanced Laser-writing for Stellar Interferometry – see website.

Goals of the research will be:
  1. manufacture complex 3D-integrated-optics components for infrared astronomical interferometry,
  2. participate in the definition of ULI models in infrared materials,
  3. investigate the chemical-physical origin of the laser-induced modifications of infrared glasses.
Besides enjoying the collaborations with the Max Plank Institute for Astronomy (MPIA-Heidelberg) and the 1st Physics Institute of the University of Cologne, the student will be actively involved into the work of a multi-national consortium of scientists and engineers, grouping the most prominent actors of the Astrophotonic research in Europe.

Mon 28-07-2014 Low-Power Laser Could Speed CPUs
The polariton laser now runs on electricity, operates at room temperature, and could be key to on-chip optical interconnects.

Now, researchers at the University of Michigan have built the first polariton laser that both runs on electricity and operates at room temperature. It emits coherent light when provided with a current of only 169 amperes per square centimeter. A similar structure operating as an ordinary laser would take more than 250 times as much current, and even the best gallium nitride laser, enhanced with quantum dots, requires at least 1000 A/cm2 before it starts lasing.

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.
