Black Phosphorus Is New ‘Wonder Material’ for Improving Optical Communication

View | Comment

BPdetectorNewsRelease_v5_withBG-2.png

Phosphorus, a highly reactive element commonly found in match heads, tracer bullets, and fertilizers, can be turned into a stable crystalline form known as black phosphorus. In a new study, researchers from the University of Minnesota used an ultrathin black phosphorus film—only 20 layers of atoms—to demonstrate high-speed data communication on nanoscale optical circuits.

Study Demonstrates Potentially Faster and More Accurate Mode of Cancer Treatment with New Laser Technology

View | Comment

FAUCancerStudy.jpg

Surgeons rely on 200-year-old technology when removing cancer--sight and touch--to determine how much to remove and what to leave alone. Laser technology pioneered at Florida Atlantic University has the promise to help a surgeon better determine if an area is cancer or healthy tissue. Moreover, when combined with laser treatment for cancer, this work lays the groundwork for laser robotic treatment of cancer.
