Optical materials news, October 2022

Using a novel form of electron microscopy, researchers have directly visualized the photocarrier transport properties of cubic boron arsenide.

Using 2D semiconductors, researchers have developed an optical spectrometer small enough to fit on a microchip.

A new class of carbide materials is capable of producing tunable plasmonic properties while withstanding incredibly high temperatures.

Researchers have developed a solid-state ‘twisted’ crystalline layered material that can give rise to tiny light-emitting points called color centers.

Researchers have created a new formula for the world's whitest paint based on hexagonal boron nitride, making it thinner and lighter.

Researchers have discovered how to use a laser beam to control the spin of electrons, and therefore the magnetic order, within a 2D semiconductor.

Researchers have developed a first-of-its-kind, plant-inspired extrusion process for growing synthetic material for soft robots.

Using an inexpensive temperature-growth method, researchers have managed to produce single-crystal perovskite optical fibers.
