RUB Engineers Optimize Spin Lasers for Rapid Data Transfer

RUB Engineers Optimize Spin Lasers for Rapid Data Transfer

RUB engineers have developed a new concept for accelerating data transfer in server farms. To this end, the team at the Chair of Photonics and Terahertz Technology applies a quantum-mechanical variable, i.e. the spin. RUBIN, the science magazine published by the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, reports on how researchers optimise so-called spin lasers for data transfer. [More]

PSI Swiss Light Source Generates Light with Properties Similar to SwissFEL X-Ray Laser

PSI Swiss Light Source Generates Light with Properties Similar to SwissFEL X-Ray Laser

For many years, PSI researchers have been testing experimental methods that will provide insights into novel materials for electronic devices. Using a special trick to make the Swiss Light Source (SLS) at PSI generate light with similar properties to that of PSI's x-ray laser SwissFEL, the researchers were able to demonstrate that the experiments planned for SwissFEL are possible and they are now building an experimental station at SwissFEL.
