'Tuning in' to a fast and optimized internet
The path toward an even faster internet has been hindered by energy consumption and cost per optical component. Researchers from Université Laval in Québec, have designed a tunable filter -- an important component of high-capacity optical networks -- that should save both money and energy because it can be readily integrated onto a photonic chip.

Quantum computer coding in silicon now possible
A team of Australian engineers has proven -- with the highest score ever obtained -- that a quantum version of computer code can be written, and manipulated, using two quantum bits in a silicon microchip. The advance removes lingering doubts that such operations can be made reliably enough to allow powerful quantum computers to become a reality.

Researchers design and patent graphene biosensors
The US Patent Office has recently published the patent application (no. US 2015/0301039), which was filed by the MIPT in May this year and is titled Biological Sensor and a Method of the Production of Biological Sensor. In Russia, this development is already protected by the patent No. 2527699 with a priority date of February 20, 2013. The key feature of the sensor is the use of a linking layer for biomolecule immobilization comprising a thin film of graphene or graphene oxide.

Miniaturizable magnetic resonance
A garnet crystal only one micrometer in diameter was instrumental in a University of Alberta team of physicists creating a route to 'lab-on-a-chip' technology for magnetic resonance, a tool to simplify advanced magnetic analysis for device development and interdisciplinary science. 'To most, a gem so tiny would be worthless, but to us, it's priceless,' says Mark Freeman, University of Alberta physics professor and Canada Research Chair in condensed matter physics. 'It was the perfect testbed for this new method.'

Sea urchin spurs new ideas for lightweight materials
Materials researchers love sea creatures. Mother-of-pearl provokes ideas for smooth surfaces, clams inspire gluey substances, shark's skin is used to develop materials that reduce drag in water, and so on. Researchers at the University of Copenhagen's Department of Chemistry have now found a model for strong, lightweight materials by diving below the sea surface to investigate a sea urchin cousin known as the heart urchin.

Microwave field imaging using diamond and vapor cells
Microwave field imaging is becoming increasingly important, as microwaves play an essential role in modern communications technology and can also be used in medical diagnostics. Researchers from the Swiss Nanoscience Institute and the Department of Physics at the University of Basel have now independently developed two new methods for imaging microwave fields. Both methods exploit the change in spin states induced by an applied microwave field, as reported by the researchers in the 'New Journal of Physics.'

Implantable wireless devices trigger -- and may block -- pain signals
Building on wireless technology that has the potential to interfere with pain, scientists have developed flexible, implantable devices that can activate -- and, in theory, block -- pain signals in the body and spinal cord before those signals reach the brain. The researchers, at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, said the implants one day may be used in different parts of the body to fight pain that doesn't respond to other therapies.

New technology colors in the infrared rainbow
Duke researchers have devised a technology that can bring true color to infrared imaging systems, like the one the Predator used to track Arnold Schwarzenegger through the jungle. Rather than creating images based on the amount of infrared radiation detected, these cameras could detect different wavelengths -- or colors -- of the infrared spectrum, which would capture much more information about the objects being imaged, such as their chemical composition.
