Quest for elusive monolayers just got a lot simpler

Compared to long, tedious hours of scanning by undergraduates, a breakthrough technology can detect monolayers with 99.9 percent accuracy—in far less time and at a fraction of the cost.

Synchronized laser pulses (red and blue) generate a burst of real and virtual charge carriers in graphene that are absorbed by gold metal to produce a net current.

Laser bursts drive fastest-ever logic gates

By clarifying the role of “real” and “virtual” charge carriers in laser-induced currents, researchers at Rochester and Erlangen have taken a decisive step toward creating ultrafast computers.

Conference on Coherence and Quantum Optics

The Rochester Conferences on Coherence and Quantum Optics (CQO) have been held every six years since their inception in 1960, essentially coincident with the first observation of lasing. Topics of interest include all aspects of experimental and theoretical coherence, quantum optics, quantum information and quantum measurement.

The CAT (Cooling and Trapping) Group of Professor Nicholas P. Bigelow is interested in understanding the interactions between light and matter.

UR Quantum

Quantum information science and engineering at the University of Rochester encompass numerous programs and departments such as chemistry, computer science, electrical engineering, mathematics, mechanical engineering, optics, physics and astronomy, and world-class research centers such as the Laboratory for Laser Energetics.

AIM Photonics members celebrate 5 years of success

In celebration of their five year anniversary and technical achievements, AIM Photonics presents a look into the institute and integrated photonics. Members detail the benefits of this technology through footage from the AIM Photonics Test, Assembly, and Packaging (TAP) Facility in Rochester, NY—the world’s first-ever open-access 300mm Photonic Packaging Research Center.
