A new way to generate multi-watt-level, octave-spanning, spectrally flat supercontinua

A new way to generate multi-watt-level, octave-spanning, spectrally flat supercontinua

Spatiotemporal nonlinear dynamics in graded-index multimode fibers: a new way to generate multi-watt-level, octave-spanning, spectrally flat supercontinua A team of researchers led by Asst. Prof. Bülend Ortaç (UNAM) has published an important study in Nature Scientific Reports journal. In this study, Ortaç group proposed a novel method to achieve octave-spanning spectrally flat supercontinuum with world [...]
UNAM researchers show photocurrent generation in metallic layered nanomaterials

UNAM researchers show photocurrent generation in metallic layered nanomaterials

Photocurrent generation is a key process in optoelectronics. Typically semiconducting materials are used as the non-equilibrium charge carriers created by optical excitation can efficiently be separated to create electric current. However, this process doesn't occur in metallic materials besides a few exceptions as the number of intrinsic charge carriers are far greater than the photoexcited [...]
A Molecular Automaton for Cancer Therapy

A Molecular Automaton for Cancer Therapy

A team of Bilkent and Hacettepe University  researchers, led by Prof. Engin Umut Akkaya of the Department of Chemistry and the National Nanotechnology Research Center (UNAM), has published an article in the journal Nature Communications on a molecular demultiplexer that functions as a “terminator” automaton. But this tiny terminator is on our side: it kills [...]
