Cellular Imaging from Phonon Imaging on a Fiber Probe

Researchers at the University of Nottingham have developed an ultrasonic imaging system, which can be deployed on the tip of a hair-thin optical fibre, and will be insertable into the human body to visualise cell abnormalities in 3D. The new technology produces microscopic and nanoscopic resolution images that will one day help clinicians to examine …

Attosecond Resolution

Researchers demonstrate an on-chip, optoelectronic device capable of sampling arbitrary, low-energy, near-infrared waveforms under ambient conditions with sub-optical-cycle resolution. The detector uses field-driven photoemission from resonant nanoantennas to create attosecond electron bursts that probe the electric field of weak optical waveforms. Using these devices, they sampled the electric fields of ~5 fJ (6.4 MV m−1), few-cycle, near-infrared waveforms …

Millimeter Wide Xenobots Are New Robots Made from Living Cells

Researchers have scraped living cells from frogs and reused them to make robots from living cells. Millimeter robots have been made from living cells (cells scraped from frogs). They are living robots that could be used for smart drug delivery, scraping plaque from arteries, microsurgery or environmental cleanup. The millimeter-wide “xenobots” can move toward a …

Electric Signal Detection from Single Molecules for Molecular Electronics Revolution

The barrier to molecular electronics was the previous inability to detect the tiny electric signals from single molecules. Roswell Biotechnologies overcame that problem and integrated the solution with CMOS. This enables an interface between molecules for sensors and DNA and other biological detections with CMOS. Nanopores have existed for a long time and being able …

Quantum Sensing With Squeezed State of Light Reduces Noise

Oak Ridge National Labs (ORNL) has quantum sensors that use a “squeezed” state of light to greatly reduce statistical noise that occurs in ordinary light. This could impact a wide range of potential applications from airport security scanning to gravitational wave measurements. Above – ACS Photonics. Copyright 2019. American Chemical Society. ACS Photonics – Quantum …
