Marangoni Optofluidic Tweezers (MOT)
There is currently a great deal of interest in using small droplets as containers for chemical reactions. Optical methods for droplet manipulation are attractive because they offer control without an on chip structure; however forces from optical tweezers tend to be in the pN range. Wayne State University researchers have developed a new m...

High Gain Infrared Collector and Data Node
An infrared collector employs a concentrator formed of a plurality of spatially related gradient-indexed (GRIN) lenses and a photo detector interconnected by optical fibers. Since the GRIN lenses are arranged on a hemispherical shell the concentrator is relatively insensitive to the direction of the incoming infrared radiation. Optical fibers ...
