Quantum Dots: Taking the Display World by Storm
Quantum Dots: Taking the Display World by Storm
The presence of quantum dots (QDs) in consumer displays has been on the rise since Sony introduced QD Vision’s edge optic in its 2013 Triluminos TV series. Samsung introduced its super ultrahigh-definition QLED TV two years later, accompanied by a strong marketing campaign for QLED, which has since driven interest from consumers and display makers alike. With improved color and energy efficiency, nearly every major display manufacturer is now incorporating QDs into their high-end displays.

Extreme UV Sources Fill the Gap
Extreme UV Sources Fill the Gap
With several pressing applications in the EUV region, much effort has been directed at developing compact sources of ultrashort-wavelength UV radiation in recent years. That work has paid off with the commercial availability of several types of EUV light sources. These include the laser-produced plasma (LPP) sources — suitable for semiconductor lithography — and discharge-produced plasma (DPP) sources that can be used for less demanding applications in mask inspection and materials analysis.

Thinnest of Materials Loom Large
Thinnest of Materials Loom Large
Only a few atomic layers thick, 2D materials such as graphene, the compound semiconductor germanium selenium, the transition metal dichalcogenide molybdenum ditelluride, and others could provide new photonic capabilities — better multispectral imaging and single-photon sources, for example. As a result, areas ranging from imaging to quantum information processing could benefit.

Combining Two Ultrathin Materials in a New QD Could Enable Widely Tunable Quantum Systems
A new type of quantum dot (QD) has been developed that allows for more accurate and more widely tunable energy levels of confined electrons. The advance in QD technology combines graphene (a conductive single atomic layer of carbon atoms) and hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN), a single layer of material similar to graphene except that it is insulating.

Holography for Display: From AR to HUD to 3D
Holography for Display: From AR to HUD to 3D
Tue, Jun 12, 2018 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
Because holograms have the advantage of being thin and light, they are finding application in the fields of augmented reality and head-up display, where constraints on the size and weight of the optics exist. Holograms can also be used for integral imaging-based 3D display, lensless projection, and lidar beam steering. Professor Pierre-Alexandre Blanche from the University of Arizona will discuss the application of holography in all of these areas and the technological advantages of holography over other techniques.
