  • Nonlinear Optics: Femtosecond lasers and nonlinear optics: New approaches solve old problems in ophthalmology: A less-invasive approach to vision correction directly changes the refractive index of ophthalmic materials via nonlinear interactions in ultrafast laser micromachining. Read more


  • Ophthalmology/Femtosecond Lasers: LIRIC: Next-generation refractive laser surgery: Introduced three decades ago, laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) transformed refractive surgery. Now, a procedure called LIRIC – a promising much less invasive approach that overcomes limitations of LASIK and its ilk – portends even broader adoption and is set to usher in a new era of vision correction.

  • Med device, drug delivery companies join J&J’s Toronto JLABS incubator:  Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) said today it has added 24 companies, including those in the medical device and drug delivery fields, to its JLABS incubator facility in Toronto, Canada. Read more


  • Technology Review: Laser Focus World’s top 20 photonics technology picks for 2016: This year, two decades of laser, optical, vibration isolation, and instrumentation development on the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) bore fruit, resulting in the launch of a new form of experimental science (gravitational astronomy). As a result, this year’s Tech Review Top 20 list concludes with an especially robust selection of science topics from the past year of Laser Focus World. Read more.
