Photonic crystal light converter – new device could be powerful tool for observation
Spectroscopy is the use of light to analyze biological samples. Different kinds of light can provide different kinds of information. Vacuum ultraviolet light is useful as it can aid people in a broad range of research fields, but generation of that light has been difficult & expensive. Researchers created a device to generate this kind of light using an ultrathin film with nanoscale perforations.

On the way to the optical cochlear implant
The cochlear implant enables worldwide over 700,000 people with reduced hearing and deaf people to hear again. So far, the auditory nerve has been stimulated by electrical impulses. The quality of this artificial hearing differs greatly from natural hearing. Due to the extensive current propagation in the cochlea, large groups of nerve cells are activated instead of just a few nerve cells.
