Physics World Focus On Optics & Lasers 2014

Transforming science into technology

Physics World 2014 Focus on Optics %26 Lasers

This special foocus issue of Physics World explores some of the latest research in optics and lasers. It includes a report from the UK research centre that is driving a new approach to quantum computing based on integrating photonic circuits, and explores other photonic research that could see particle accelerators shrunk to the scale of microchips.

Indeed, the huge potential of the photonics sector in general is underlined in our keynote interview with the chief executive of Jenoptik, Michael Mertin. We also survey the advanced optics driving a new era of multifunctional 3D printing, the largest optical camera ever flown in space and the optical sensors that are changing the face of farming.
