Data Centers and Telecommunications
Data Centers and Telecommunications
Today’s data centers deliver millions of services, processing terabytes of data per second around the world for billions of devices. Considering the volume, it’s amazing that we ever have a signal. As the need for connectivity increases, data centers are under constant pressure to add more and more massive racks of servers and fiber optic interconnects, which takes money and time, energy and real estate.

Medicine and the Life Sciences
Imagine testing for a host of diseases and conditions in a single sample of blood, saliva, urine or even a few tear drops. Cancers, heart conditions, viruses, food allergies and sepsis are just some of the tests that could be carried out using next-generation lab-on-a-chip concepts that are being explored and patented by today’s top researchers.

Characterizing Photonics Devices with Transmission Electron Microscopy
Characterizing Photonics Devices with Transmission Electron Microscopy
Fri, Feb 10, 2017 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST
A new generation of transmission electron microscopes (TEMs) have become available which are capable of image resolutions better than 0.1 nm and spectroscopic resolutions better than 0.4 eV. Special purpose sample stages can convert these microscopes into true experimental nanomaterials laboratories. What does this mean for photonics? Join Brookhaven's Eric Stach to learn about ways that TEM can be used to take images of the structure of photonics devices at the Angstrom to micron scale; how diffraction can be used to characterize crystal structure; and how chemical spectroscopy can be used to determine chemical speciation and electronic structure at the nanoscale.
