Enabling the development of electro-optical devices

Enabling the development of electro-optical devices
A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules. The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes.

Squeezing light into nanoscale devices and circuits

Squeezing light into nanoscale devices and circuits
As electronic devices and circuits shrink into the nanoscale, the ability to transfer data on a chip, at low power with little energy loss, is becoming a critical challenge. Over the past decade, squeezing light into tiny devices and circuits has been a major goal of nanophotonics researchers. Electronic oscillations at the surface of metals, known as surface plasmon polaritons or plasmons for short, have become an intense area of focus.

Photorelay is suitable for factory automation

Photorelay is suitable for factory automation
Toshiba Electronics Europe has released the TLP3122A photorelay for factory automation and other industrial applications including building automation, security and semiconductor testing. The photorelay integrates MOSFET devices fabricated using the latest U-MOS IX process to reduce on-state resistance. Housed in the small 4-pin SO6 package, the TLP3122A provides an off-state output terminal voltage (VOFF) of 60V, a constant on-state current (ION) of 1.4A and an on-state pulsed current (IONP) up to 4.2A.

Low-cost avalanche photodiode comes in an M1 package

Low-cost avalanche photodiode comes in an M1 package
LASER COMPONENTS has announced that its cost-effective SAH series of avalanche photodiodes (APDs) is now available in an M1 package. This is the smallest available SMD housing (Surface-Mounted Device), at only 2 mm x 1.4 mm. The new APDs will be presented at SPIE DCS in Orlando, Florida (Booth 1029). Optimised for wavelengths of 850 nm and 905 nm, these components are mainly designed for range finding applications in which larger detectors cannot be installed due to lack of space.

Imaging technique pulls plasmon data together

Imaging technique pulls plasmon data together
Rice University scientists have developed a novel technique to view a field of plasmonic nanoparticles simultaneously to learn how their differences change their reactivity. Their new method is called snapshot hyperspectral imaging (SHI), which up to now has been used primarily in astronomy. SHI allows researchers to view minute differences between otherwise identical nanoparticles and see how they react in response to light and environmental changes.

Latest line-up of high speed signal transmission photorelays

Latest line-up of high speed signal transmission photorelays
Toshiba Electronics Europe has announced the launch of two high speed signal transmission photorelays that offer the industry’s smallest footprint. The TLP3475S features low on-state output resistance (RON) – typically 1.1Ω and offers fast switching times of 0.5ms (ton) and 0.4ms (toff). The device is rated for 60V (VOFF) and a max. current of 0.4A (ION). The device is housed in an S-VSON4 package measuring just 2.00mm x 1.45mm x 1.65mm.

Super-resolution microscopy in space and time

Super-resolution microscopy in space and time
Super-resolution microscopy is a technique that can “see” beyond the diffraction of light, providing unprecedented views of cells and their interior structures and organelles. The technique has garnered increasing interest recently, especially since its developers won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2014. But super-resolution microscopy comes with a big limitation: it only offers spatial resolution.
