Laser printer for photonic circuits Researchers from the University of Washington and University of Maryland propose a faster, cheaper way to fabricate and reconfigure photonic integrated circuits. The method uses a laser writer to write, erase, and modify circuits into a thin film of phase-change material similar to what is used for recordable CDs and DVDs. The researcher say the method co... » read more

Thinner, tougher heat flux sensors Researchers from the Department of Physics at the University of Tokyo have designed a heat flux sensor that can measure heat flux — the amount of heat that passes through a material — using a manufacturable, flexible thin film with circuits etched in a way that increases the anomalous Nernst effect (ANE). ANE turns heat into an electrical signal using ... » read more
