With new composites, optical devices may improve dramatically

8 Oct '21
Researchers at ITMO University in St. Petersburg have improved targeted treatment technology for nanoporous glass based composites with silver and copper added.

All composite materials have the high potential to be used in optical instruments such as lasers, lidars, sensors, lenses, waveguides and other applications where a light signal must be processed. The scientists pin much hope on glass with metal nanoparticles added as part of next gen optical filters.

Depending on what metal ions are added to the glass, a resultant composite could control a very specific part of the spectrum, as required.
