Australia’s nanolaser breakthrough is expected to enable medical applications

Sydney-Australian researchers have developed a series of new miniature lasers with potential medical, surgical, industrial and military applications.

Researchers from the Australian National University (ANU) said that “nanolasers” are expected to be more powerful than traditional technologies. This technology uses lasers instead of electronic devices and is a method called photonics.

They said that nanolasers only need very little energy to start emitting light. Instead of using mirrors that reflect light, the team created a device that can capture energy and prevent it from escaping. This power is used and constructed into a “strong, well-shaped” beam. The researchers said that this overcomes a well-known challenge of nanolasers-“energy leakage.”

The project is a collaboration with scholars from Korea University and published in the journal Natural communication.

The lead researcher is Professor Yuri Kivshar, who said that the light beam will guide the surgeon like a flashlight or flashlight.

“Why do we need [it] smaller?Imagine what you are doing [a] An operation in the body [sic] And you are using fiber optics. Therefore, the fiber introduced into the body will only see the light, and basically there is nothing inside, so you need a flashlight. This torch will illuminate where you need to work, and it will be a real torch effect,” he said.

Scholars say that although their nanolasers are not the smallest ever, they are the most efficient and powerful.

According to the Australian National University’s research, the energy threshold at which the laser starts to work is about 50 times lower than any previously recorded nanolaser.

Physicists believe that this technology can be widely used in small devices, including hair removal, laser printing, night monitoring, and lighting for fine surgery in the body.
