Neuromorphic computing applies concepts extracted from neuroscience to develop devices shaped like neural systems and achieve brain-like capacity and efficiency. In this way, neuromorphic machines, able to learn from the surrounding environment to deduce abstract concepts and to make decisions, promise to start a technological revolution transforming our society and our life...
Conventional stereoscopic three-dimensional displays suffer from vergence-accommodation conflict because the stimulus to accommodation is fixed by the display panel and viewing optics, but that to vergence changes with image contents. With the recent rapid development of head-mounted displays, several methods have been proposed to offer the accommodation cues, among which multifocal display technology is an effective and practical solution...
Editor-in-Chief Min Gu "It is no doubt that photonics has become a key enabling technology platform for our sustainable life. It is at this exciting time that we welcome the arrival of the inaugural issue of the journal, PhotoniX, to our photonics community. We aim that the new journal not only truly showcases the enabling power of photonics, but also strives to develop this power into cultivating industries as well as improving the competitiveness, the scope and depth of science and technology in general..."
Editor-in-Chief Min Qiu "This open-access journal focuses on photonic technology with cutting-edge, multidisciplinary and derivative characteristics, aiming to become a platform to promote the international frontier "Enabling Technology". It comes at a crucial moment when both academia and industry urgently need a platform to explore the true enabling power of photonics..."
