Contrary to the Laser, BEL utilizes an organic dye/polymer system, which is arranged between two mirrors forming an optical micro-cavity. The incoming light is multiply reflected between the mirrors, giving rise to an effective photon mass and a confining potential - key prerequisites for the Bose-Einstein condensation of photons. Thermalisation is achieved by the photon scattering off the dye molecules, resulting in a strong light concentration effect into the centre of the confining potential, where the potential energy is minimized. The spatial concentration is a consequence of the thermalisation of the trapped photon gas.
For many Laser applications, coherent but not necessarily monochromatic light is required. The strong light concentration effect of BEL and the generation of coherent light with high intensity offer opportunities for a range of applications. For these applications, BEL can be a efficient light source for coherent visible and UV light. In contrast to a Laser, where significant share of the energy is lost in heat, BEL allows the design of an efficient solid state “cold Laser”.

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.
Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...
A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
