New microscope sets a record for visualizing surface wetting properties

29-Nov-2017

Wetting is an everyday phenomenon that represents how well liquid spreads on a surface. When water comes into contact with an extremely water-repellent, or 'superhydrophobic' surface, droplets bead up and roll off easily. Aalto University researchers have developed a measurement technique called ...

Extraordinarily strong nonlinear optical graphene-like material could renovate nonlinear photonics

The discovery could enable high resolution imagining at low-power

26-Oct-2017

Nonlinear optics is a key enabling technology of our modern society, such as in imaging and high-speed data communication. But the traditional devices suffer from relatively small nonlinear optical coefficients of conventional optical materials. An interdisciplinary team of scientists from Aalto ...
