Light Sources for New Quantum Technology

Electronic circuits are based on electrons, but one of the most promising technologies for future quantum circuits are photonic circuits, i.e. circuits based on light (photons) instead of electrons. First, it is necessary to be able to create a stream of single photons and control their direction. Researchers around the world have made all sorts [...]

Data Center Trend: Distributed Power in the White Space

Data Center Trend: Distributed Power in the White Space

Cloud computing vendors and colocation data centers make every effort to maximize the scalability, efficiency and agility of their data centers. As a result, more and more of them are investigating replacing older, transformer-based centralized power protection schemes with distributed architectures in which uninterruptible power systems (UPSs) reside in the white space (or data hall). [...]

Laser-Like Light Emission: Optical Resonators

Laser-Like Light Emission: Optical Resonators

By combining plasmonics and optical microresonators, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have created a new optical amplifier (or laser) design, paving the way for power-on-a-chip applications.   “We have made optical systems at the microscopic scale that amplify light and produce ultra-narrowband spectral output,” explained J. Gary Eden, a professor of electrical [...]

Laser Pulse Turns Glass Into a Metal

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. Quartz glass does not conduct electric [...]
