Tackling standardization in fluorescence molecular imaging    pp505 - 515
Maximillian Koch, Panagiotis Symvoulidis & Vasilis Ntziachristos

The parameters and issues that affect the accuracy of fluorescence molecular imaging are discussed and a means for ensuring reliable reproduction of the fluorescence signals in biological tissue is proposed.


Review Articles


Quantum technologies with optically interfaced solid-state spins    pp516 - 527
David D. Awschalom, Ronald Hanson, Jörg Wrachtrup & Brian B. Zhou

This Review covers recent progress in quantum technologies with optically addressable solid-state spins. A possible path to chip-scale quantum technologies through advances in nanofabrication, quantum control and materials engineering is described.




Spin control in reduced-dimensional chiral perovskites    pp528 - 533
Guankui Long, Chongyun Jiang, Randy Sabatini, Zhenyu Yang, Mingyang Wei et al.

Spin-polarized photon absorption and photoluminescence are reported in reduced-dimensional chiral perovskite materials. The finding indicates that such materials may in the future be useful as a photonic interface for spintronics.




Large-scale silicon quantum photonics implementing arbitrary two-qubit processing    pp534 - 539
Xiaogang Qiang, Xiaoqi Zhou, Jianwei Wang, Callum M. Wilkes, Thomas Loke et al.

A fully programmable two-qubit quantum processor with more than 200 components is demonstrated by using silicon photonic circuits. A two-qubit quantum approximate optimization algorithm and simulation of Szegedy quantum walks are implemented.


Nano-optic endoscope for high-resolution optical coherence tomography in vivo    pp540 - 547
Hamid Pahlevaninezhad, Mohammadreza Khorasaninejad, Yao-Wei Huang, Zhujun Shi, Lida P. Hariri et al.

A metalens is integrated into the design of an endoscopic optical coherence tomography catheter to achieve near-diffraction-limited imaging free of non-chromatic aberrations, offering high-resolution imaging well beyond the Rayleigh range of the input field.


Single upconversion nanoparticle imaging at sub-10 W cm−2 irradiance    pp548 - 553
Qian Liu, Yunxiang Zhang, Chunte Sam Peng, Tianshe Yang, Lydia-Marie Joubert et al.

This systematic study of upconversion nanoparticles reveals power-dependent luminescence and paves the way towards ideal single-molecule and cellular probes.


Manipulation of polarizations for broadband terahertz waves emitted from laser plasma filaments    pp554 - 559
Zhelin Zhang, Yanping Chen, Sen Cui, Feng He, Min Chen et al.

Broadband terahertz (THz) pulses are generated from a laser filament with a near-infrared laser at the fundamental frequency and its second harmonic. The azimuthal angle and ellipticity of the THz pulses are arbitrarily controlled by the two lasers.


Photography optics in the time dimension    pp560 - 566
Barmak Heshmat, Matthew Tancik, Guy Satat & Ramesh Raskar

By folding large spaces in time using an off-resonant Fabry–Pérot cavity in camera sensors, new capabilities such as ultrafast multi-zoom imaging and ultrafast multispectral imaging, of use for time-resolved imaging and depth-sensing optics, are found.
