Leica Webinar on Multiphoton Excitation and Deep Imaging Application

Alberto Diaspro Head of Nanophysics will be one of the speakers at this Leica Webinar.

For more information carry on reading...

Dear Scientist,

Are you working with thick highly scattering (living) samples?

Then join in our webinar about Multiphoton Excitation and Deep Imaging Application and learn more about the latest non-invasive technology in the field using the Leica TCS SP5 MP and the new fully-integrated Chameleon Compact OPO solution from Leica Microsystems.

The OPO (optical parametric oscillator) offers you multiphoton excitation up to 1300 nm and therefore even less scattering and deeper tissue penetration.

Register here to attend the on-line event on Tuesday,

19th October at 5pm (CET), 4pm (UK).

Organic photonics for communications

The IIT is happy to announce a review article in Nature Photonics written by Guglielmo Lanzani from the Centre for Nanoscience and Technology IIT@POLIMI.

The paper is entitled: Organic photonics for communications. The abstract follows below, alternativley download the full paper here.

Photons as information carriers have the potential to meet the ever-increasing demands on bandwidth and information density in fields such as information and communication technology, biomedicine and computing. Organic semiconductors may be well-suited to such applications, thanks to their ability to transmit, modulate and detect light in an architecture that is low cost, flexible, lightweight and robust. Here we review recent breakthroughs in organic photonics, including ultrafast all-optical modulation in polymer photonic crystals, silicon/organic hybrid systems, gain switching in polymer amplifiers and lasers, and new devices such as hybrid organic/inorganic electrically pumped lasers.òòò
