Patent to increase fibre optic network capacity

The installation of a small device (a so-called higher-order mode filter) instead of an overhaul with the replacement of cables and installations - such a non-invasive perspective for the modernisation of telecommunications networks is possible thanks to the cooperation of Polish scientists and engineers from the Photonics and Optical Fibre Cluster

How to generate a pulse of length equal to a single field oscillation?

Researchers from the Wrocław University of Science and Technology published the result of research work enabling the generation of ultra-short pulses consisting of a single oscillation of an electromagnetic field, the course of which can be freely controlled by modifying the phase of a stabilised chromium laser.

Laser harmony

Would you like to capture a chemical transformation inside a cell live? Or maybe revolutionize microchips' production by printing paths in a layer that has a thickness of just 100 nanometers? These and many other goals can now be achieved with the latest femtosecond laser created by a team of scientists led by Dr. Yuriy Stepanenko.
