The Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, has received a grant from the Independent Research Fund Denmark to investigate nonlinear effects in semiconductor lasers – a stepping-stone to enable next generation higher-order modulation in fibre optic networks.

One of the properties of lasers is the reduced spectral distribution of their optical emission as compared to other light sources.

However, this laser ‘linewidth’ can be greatly influenced by the environmental conditions, which deteriorate their performance when used outside the research lab.

Now, Assistant Professor Nicolas Volet, who leads the Integrated Photonics group at Aarhus University (AU) has received a DKK 2.9 million grant from the Independent Research Fund Denmark for a new ambitious project, that aims at solving the linewidth issue of diode lasers.

This issue is known to be one of the limitations in the deployment of coherent higher-order

Chrysalix RoboValley Fund Invests in Sortera Alloys, Developers of a Breakthrough Technology …

Vancouver, BC and Delft, Netherlands , Oct. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Chrysalix Venture Capital, a global venture capital fund with a long history commercializing step-change innovation for resource intensive industries, announces an investment in Sortera Alloys, developers of an intelligent sorting system for the upcycling of non-ferrous scrap metal, including Aluminum, Copper, Zinc and Brass. The system enables accurate, high throughput sorting by metal type and alloy composition through a combination of sensor fusion (XRF, Optical), AI/ML image processing and an advanced scrap feeder design. 

“Chrysalix is making the circularity of metals a major theme of our new fund. Primary aluminum production accounts for 1% of global GHGs and to achieve the forecasted global demand and climate change targets, the industry must deliver significant decarbonization,” said Alfred Lam, Partner at Chrysalix Venture Capital. “Sortera’s sorting systems enable the recyclability of aluminum for high-value end products thereby saving up to

Three Scientists Awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for Breakthrough Black Hole Discoveries | Smart News

Black holes are cosmic phenomena that never fail to capture the world’s attention and curiosity. Millions of these galactic beasts are peppered throughout the universe, and their gravitational force is so strong that not even light can escape. This morning, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics to three scientists for their research that illuminated details of black holes’ existence and function in the universe.

Roger Penrose, a cosmologist and professor emeritus at the University of Oxford in England, received half of the award for demonstrating that black holes exist—an idea that even Albert Einstein himself was skeptical of. The other half of the award was jointly awarded to Reinhard Genzel, the director of the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Germany, and Andrea Ghez, an astronomer professor at the University of California in Los Angeles, for discovering a supermassive black hole at the

‘Digital chemistry’ breakthrough turns words into molecules

A new system capable of automatically turning words into molecules on demand will open up the digitisation of chemistry, scientists say.


Researchers from the University of Glasgow’s School of Chemistry, who developed the system, claim it will lead to the creation of a “Spotify for chemistry”—a vast online repository of downloadable recipes for important molecules including drugs.

The creation of such a system could help developing countries more easily access medications, enable more efficient international scientific collaboration, and even support the human exploration of space.

The Glasgow team, led by Professor Lee Cronin, have laid the groundwork for digital chemistry with the development of what they call a “chemical processing unit”—an affordable desktop-sized robot chemist which is capable of doing the repetitive and time-consuming work of creating chemicals. Other robot chemists, built with different operating systems, have also been developed elsewhere.

Up until now, those

IQM staff publishes a quantum-computer breakthrough in Nature

“The device is so tiny; it could even fit inside a bacterium,” says Möttönen who is a joint Professor of Quantum Technology at Aalto University and VTT, and also a Co-Founder of IQM.

The new bolometer can measure the energy of photons much more accurately and faster than before. This is essential for quantum computers, since measuring the energy of qubits, the quantum bits, is an integral part of quantum algorithms. Moreover, the device is small and readily integrable into superconducting quantum processors, providing a clear path towards real-world applications.

“We started the proof-of-concept using gold palladium for the bolometer,” says M.Sc. Roope Kokkoniemi, the first author of the Nature paper who just joined IQM. “It worked but at the same time we also figured out how to make it even better. This is where graphene comes in as a replacement. The end result is indeed a much better

Physicists at Aalto University and VTT Technical Research Center of Finland have developed a new detector for measuring energy quanta at unprecedented resolution. This discovery could help bring quantum computing out of the laboratory and into real-world applications. The results have been published today in Nature.


The type of detector the team works on is called a bolometer, which measures the energy of incoming radiation by measuring how much it heats up the detector. Professor Mikko Möttönen’s Quantum Computing and Devices group at Aalto has been developing their expertise in bolometers for quantum computing over the past decade, and have now developed a device that can match current state-of-the-art detectors used in quantum computers.

“It is amazing how we have been able to improve the specs of our bolometer year after year, and now we embark
