  1. Twisting Light Using Two Spatial Degrees Of Freedom Could Solve Spectrum Crunch

    Researchers have demonstrated a proof-of-concept technique that twists a light beam into more than one hundred spatial modes to carry more information than what is possible through current telecommunications technologies.

  2. Cobolt FandangoTM: Now Up To 300 mW CW Single Frequency 515 nm

    Cobolt AB recently announced the release of a higher power model of the Cobolt FandangoTM 515 nm on the ground breaking single-frequency 05-01 Series platform. With up to 300 mW CW output power, the Cobolt FandangoTM is perfectly suited to demanding applications in Raman spectroscopy, Interferometry and laser doppler velocimetry (LDV).  

  3. Study Explains Strength Gap Between Graphene, Carbon Fiber

    Carbon fiber, a pillar of strength in materials manufacturing for decades, isn’t as good as it could be, but there are ways to improve it, according to Rice University scientists.

  6. Quantum Computers: 10-Fold Boost In Stability Achieved

    Engineers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) have created a new quantum bit that remains in a stable superposition for 10 times longer than previously achieved, dramatically expanding the time during which calculations could be performed in a future silicon quantum computer.

  7. KATRIN Spectrometer Experiment Attempts To Measure Precise Mass Of Neutrinos

    Physicists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany have switched on a 220-ton, 60 million euro ($66 million) apparatus that will attempt in the next five years to pin down the absolute mass of neutrinos – the so-called ghost particles of cosmology believed to hold vital clues to the origin and fate of the universe.

  8. Patients Unsuitable For LASIK Could Benefit From Vision Correction Surgery Using Intraocular Lenses

    People who are unsuitable for LASIK because of moderate or extreme nearsightedness or severe astigmatism may benefit from a surgical procedure using intraocular lenses.

  9. Full Circle Viewing: 360-Degree Electronic Holographic Display

    Princess Leia, your Star Wars hologram moment may be redeemed. In the original ‘Star Wars’ movie, the inviting but grainy special effects hologram might soon be a true full-color, full-size holographic image, due to advances by a South Korean research team refining 3-D holographic displays.

  10. UCF Scientist Creates Most Efficient Quantum Cascade Laser Ever

    A team of UCF researchers has produced the most efficient quantum cascade laser ever designed – and done it in a way that makes the lasers easier to manufacture.
