Confluence or convergence?

By Arti Agrawal - Re-posted from The Optical Society Blog | Posted: 27 September 2013

The latest innovation that has caught the imagination of the world at large is 3-D printing. As many of you may know (see the OPN article - where we found the image below) 3-D printing isn’t a single technology but several different technologies (almost all use Optics) that have been around for a decade or so. The technology has many applications, some of which make people rather nervous.

Temporal Zone Plates, Image-guided Laser Machining, and Donuts

By James Van Howe | Posted: 14 June 2013

The last day of the conference began with a donut party, including  Starbucks coffee, to provide the staples of sugar, fat, and caffeine (the real brain-food) needed to finish the last talks of breakthrough research.

All Good Things Must Come to an End

By Dominic Siriani | Posted: 14 June 2013

The last full day of CLEO: 2013 has concluded, and it was a particularly intense day to say the least. Besides a full day of contributed talks, invited talks, and tutorials, the postdeadline session filled up the evening. With that, we’re now heading into the final, shortened day of the conference.

High Power Diode Laser Arrays

By Dominic Siriani | Posted: 13 June 2013

In the same way as I began yesterday’s entry, I’d like to congratulate those honored at today’s CLEO plenary session, in this case the new IEEE Photonics Society and OSA fellows. Following the award presentation, Prof. Alan Willner gave an overview of the National Photonics Initiative, which has been created to help raise awareness, increase collaboration, and drive investment in photonics. The takeaway message concluding Prof. Willner’s presentation was to be sure to spread word of the crucial importance of photonics!

Integrated Photonics and Interconnects

By Dominic Siriani | Posted: 12 June 2013

First off, congratulations to the award recipients honored at the Plenary and Awards Session I at Tuesday’s CLEO meeting. The session was highlighted by presentations by Prof. Paul Corkum, who spoke about the development and science of attosecond photonics, and by Prof. Stephen Harris, who gave an excellent history of parametric down conversion. Both talks gave some great insight into the basic science of quantum mechanics and photonics.

So Many Sources: OCT, Single Photons, and Mid-IR Lasers

By Dominic Siriani | Posted: 11 June 2013

My CLEO experience is off to a great start, and the theme for today seemed to be optical sources of many varieties. I began my day in a session from the Symposium on Novel Light Sources for Biomedical Applications, which focused on optical coherence tomography (OCT).
