It’s the weekend again, and August has arrived. The following is a selection of optoelectronic information for everyone, please take a look again!
Nanostructures can record high-order harmonics generated by ultra-high-intensity laser pulses
According to foreign media reports, researchers at Cornell University have developed nanostructures that can convert laser pulses into higher harmonic spectrums. This is a new scientific tool for high-resolution imaging and studying physical processes on the attosecond scale. Paved the way. For a long time, the high-order harmonic spectrum has been used to combine photons in pulsed lasers into one ultrashort photon with higher energy and generate extreme ultraviolet and X-rays for various scientific purposes.
Scientists use graphene nano ink for additive manufacturing of supercapacitors
According to foreign media reports, the research team led by Suprem Das, Associate Professor of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering at Kansas State University, and Christopher Sorensen, Distinguished Professor of Physics at the University, demonstrated a potential method of manufacturing graphene-based nano-inks with flexible and printable electronics. The form of the product is added to manufacture supercapacitors. Supercapacitors are energy devices that can be quickly charged and discharged within tens of seconds. As researchers around the world study the possibility of replacing batteries with supercapacitors, the team led by Das came up with another prediction.
Researchers develop less invasive optogenetic devices to “illuminate” neuronal activity in the brain
According to foreign media New Atlas, optogenetics is a very promising technology-among other things, it may one day be used to reduce anxiety, treat addiction, and even reverse blindness. A newly developed device will soon be able to greatly reduce its invasiveness, making it more feasible.

Scientists use three ingredients to make micron-level self-powered artificial swimming devices
A new study shows that it is possible to use three components to make a self-powered swimming robot with a small body.
Researchers in this project combined oil droplets with water containing detergent-like substances and found that they could create artificial swimming devices that can swim independently and collect energy for charging. Oil droplets use temperature fluctuations in their surrounding environment to store energy and swim.
When cooled, the oil droplet releases a fine line like a tail into the environment, creating friction between the tail and the surrounding liquid, pushing the oil droplet to move. When heated, the water droplets retract their tails, return to their original state, and recharge using the heat in the environment.
Researchers use charged graphene foam as “uranium magnet” for water purification
Is there anything graphene can’t do? MIT researchers have made a reusable filter with graphene oxide foam, which attracts uranium like a magnet, effectively sucking radioactive elements out of drinking water, and found another way for this magical material. One use.

“Polarization beat length” in basic optics
The polarization beat length is the period of the interference effect in the birefringent medium. When two linearly polarized lights in different directions propagate in a birefringent medium, their phase changes are different. It is assumed that each polarized wave propagates along a major axis of the medium, so the polarization direction remains unchanged during the propagation process.
Mid-infrared laser light source
The mid-infrared laser light source is a light source that radiates mid-infrared light similar to a laser beam. These light sources usually include a mid-infrared laser or shorter wavelength laser and nonlinear frequency conversion devices.
The mid-infrared spectral region includes wavelengths from 3μm to 8μm. Some people think that the mid-infrared region contains shorter wavelengths, for example, starting from 2μm, which greatly broadens the mid-infrared light source. Typical applications of mid-infrared light sources include gas spectroscopy and military aircraft interference infrared tracking weapons.
This article allows you to master the main repair steps of laser cladding technology
Although the application of laser cladding technology in industry is still in the stage of growth and exploration, with the breakthrough of one by one, the current development speed is relatively rapid, and it has applications in aerospace, automobile, chemical industry, and biomedicine. Laser cladding is a kind of laser additive remanufacturing technology. There are three main forms of industrial manufacturing: additive manufacturing, equal material manufacturing, and subtractive material manufacturing.
A simple list allows you to quickly understand the miniature spectrometer
Spectroscopic instruments are the basic equipment for analyzing and measuring the composition and structure of substances using optical technology, Electronic technology and computer technology. They are widely used in environmental monitoring, industrial control, chemical analysis, food quality testing, material analysis, clinical inspection, aviation Space remote sensing and science education and other fields.
A simple list to understand the performance indicators of the spectrometer
The basis of spectroscopy measurement is to measure the correspondence between optical radiation and wavelength. Generally speaking, the direct result of spectroscopy measurement is a curve composed of many discrete points. The abscissa (X axis) of each point is the wavelength, and the ordinate (Y axis) is the intensity at this wavelength. The performance of a spectrometer can be divided into several categories. Today we bring you a simple list to understand the performance indicators of the spectrometer. I hope to help you!
