The Innovation Platform spoke to Bernard Tourillon, Chairman, President and CEO of HPQ Silicon, to find out more about the company’s plans to manufacture high-value silicon and silica-based technologies. HPQ Silicon is a Quebec-based innovative technology development company offering silicon...

Creating compact and efficient electro-optic modulators for free space

Researchers have developed a compact and high-speed electro-optic modulator for free space applications that modulates light at gigahertz speed. Electro-optic modulators, which control aspects of light in response to electrical signals, are essential for everything, from sensing to metrology and...

Achieving sustainable photon upconversion

Scientists in Mainz and Berlin have successfully utilised chromium for efficient green-to-blue photon upconversion. Sustainable chemical applications need to be able to employ and incorporate renewable energy sources, renewable raw materials, and Earth-abundant elements. However, many techniques have only been...

Understanding biofilter bacteria in recirculating aquaculture systems

Marineholmen RASLab’s CEO Dr Mark Powell and Research Coordinator Dr Irene Roalkvam explain what genome sequencing can tell us about biofilter bacteria in recirculating aquaculture systems. Recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) operating at a high degree of water recirculation depends on...

The existence of one-pole magnets: Fact or fiction?

A collaborative team of researchers have investigated magnetic monopoles and utilised cosmic rays and particle accelerators to determine the existence of one-pole magnets. What is a magnetic monopole? Particle physicists define a magnetic monopole as a hypothetical elementary particle that is...
