No slowdown: Philips is continuing to expand VCSEL production
Philips Photonics says that the proliferation of applications for vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) in 3D and proximity sensing means it has now passed the shipment milestone of one billion such devices.
Scientists at the University of Groningen used a silver sawtooth nanoslit array to produce valley-coherent photoluminescence in two-dimensional tungsten disulfide flakes at room temperature.
Until now, this could only be achieved at very low temperatures. Coherent light can be used to store or transfer information in quantum electronics. This plasmon-exciton hybrid device is promising for use in integrated nanophotonics (light-based electronics).
