2021 – The year of the Smart Building

While the workplace will be for ever changed, it is not a matter of “if” but “when” and “how” we will return to “in-person” collaboration. Returning trust to the workplace will take effort. This is where the “smarts” of a smart building comes into play. The same data used to reduce cost by reducing energy use can be further refined beyond just general occupancy to detect density allowing HVAC systems to adjust airflow, humidity, and temperature.

Silica optical fiber integrated with two-dimensional materials: towards opto-electro-mechanical technology

The integration of graphene and related two-dimensional (2D) materials in optical fibers have stimulated significant advances in all-fiber photonics and optoelectronics. The conventional passive silica fiber devices with 2D materials are empowered for enhancing light-matter interactions and are applied for manipulating light beams in respect of their polarization, phase, intensity and frequency, and even realizing the active photo-electric conversion and electro-optic modulation, which paves a new route to the integrated multifunctional all-fiber optoelectronic system.
