  • Several research groups have now succeeded in achieving lasing in free-electron lasers (FELs) driven by compact plasma wakefield accelerators. In the future, the approach may ultimately lead to a new breed of much smaller, more affordable FELs.

    • Oliver Graydon
    Meeting Report
  • Although optical communications continue to be the main driver for integrated photonics, new applications are emerging in computing and neural networks. That was the message from this year’s European Conference on Integrated Optics in Milan.

    • Giampaolo Pitruzzello
    Meeting Report
  • Time-varying metamaterials bring in an extra degree of freedom, enabling applications unachievable by normal metamaterials and opening up new opportunities.

    • Rachel Won
    Meeting Report
  • Delegates at the BiOS symposium heard how artificial intelligence can transform medical imaging, with its ability to improve quality, speed and molecular specificity.

  • Registration fees, travel costs and visas, and time away from home and the lab, are all factors that can make attending scientific meetings in person difficult. Can online conferences provide a solution?

    • David Pile
    Meeting Report
  • Dielectric antennas and metasurfaces open up new opportunities for future applications in advanced optoelectronics, light detection and ranging for autonomous vehicles, fluorescence-enhancing substrates for bioimaging and many more.
