PHOTONIC CHIP STEERS LIGHT WITHOUT ANY MOVING PARTS

In search for a compact and reliable LiDAR solution, researchers from Yokohama National University in Japan have developed a waveguide-based photonic chip that takes a laser beam as an input and steers light beams over a wide range of selectable angles, without involving any moving parts, not even MEMS. by Julien Happich @ eenewseurope.com Their results …

INDOOR SOLAR CELLS OPTIMISED TO CONVERT AMBIENT INDOOR LIGHT TO ELECTRICITY

Swedish and Chinese scientists have developed organic solar cells optimised to convert ambient indoor light to electricity. The power they produce is low, but is probably enough to feed the millions of products that the internet of things will bring online. For more information see the IDTechEx report on Energy Harvesting Microwatt to Megawatt 2019-2029.  As the internet of things …
