Bending Back Light: The Science of Negative Index Materials

Costas M. Soukoulis

After years of painstakingly developing and testing the necessary materials, scientists are now looking to translate negative refraction into positive applications such as sub-wavelength, high-resolution imaging across the electromagnetic spectrum.

Slow Light and Fast Data Links: Report from OFC 2006

This year’s Optical Fiber Communications/National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC) was a rich blend of technical content, ranging from cutting-edge concepts such as slow light to the development of low-cost components for fiber-to-the-home systems.

Coating Technologies for High-Damage-Threshold Optics

The telecom boom of the late 1990s helped drive a revolution in thin-film technology. As a result, new deposition techniques have been developed that can withstand environmental challenges such as humidity and thermal stress.
