Fraunhofer HHI at Photonics West 2016, February 13-18 in San Francisco

02.02.2016

The Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI presents the latest developments in sensory and laser technology at the Photonics West. Meet our experts at the joint German booth 4629-28, hall D on February 13-18 in San Francisco, United States.

You find the following highlights at our boot 4629-28, hall D:

Terahertz sensing – World’s most compact THz-transceiver

Terahertz radiation has proven potential as versatile tool for non-destructive testing (NDT). Up to now, the application of THz technologies in industrial environments is severely impeded due to the complexity of today’s THz sensor heads. Especially reflection measurements suffer from bulky and expensive devices. The Fraunhofer HHI presents a novel integrated THz-transceiver, which combines emitter and detector in a single, compact module and allows for measurements under normal incidence for the first time.

Fiber optical 3D shape sensors: Cyberglove – control of robots with nerves out of glass

A new concept for a multifunctional fiber sensor platform for 3D shape sensing is developed by applying a novel femtosecond laser processing technology for high-precision direct writing of Bragg gratings within the core and the cladding of optical fibers. These sensors are exemplary integrated in a Cyberglove, where the movements of each individual finger can be detected, visualized, and simultaneously transferred to a robotic hand.

Integrated Tunable Lasers for THz generation: Dual tunable laser chip at 1.5µm – based on Fraunhofer HHI´s hybrid integration platform PolyBoard

Fraunhofer HHI´s PolyBoard platform enables the hybrid integration in one chip of two Polymer/InP DBR tunable lasers in the 1.5 µm wavelength range. Each laser shows a tuning range of 20 nm (2.4 THz), and continuous sweeps of more than 9 nm (1.1 THz) have been demonstrated. Application fields of such dual optical sources are DWDM optical networks, CW Terahertz systems, microwave photonics, and spectroscopy.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
