  1. Seeing A Molecule Breathe

    Sketch of the studied molecule and the gold nanoantenna attached to it (not to scale). The interaction of nanoparticles with light creates an electric field between the particles which amplifies the radiation and makes it possible to detect single molecules.

  2. Excelitas Technologies® Corp. Introduces New OmniCure® AC Series Product Accessories For Maximum Flexibility And Improved Process Control

    Excelitas Technologies Corp., a global technology leader focused on delivering innovative light delivery solutions and customized optoelectronics, recently announced the expansion of the OmniCure AC Series UV LED curing solutions with its new PLC2000 Controller and AC Optical Adapter.

  3. A New Wireless Energy Transfer Device Can Charge Any Device Without Using Cables

    Researchers at the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) have designed a new device for wireless energy transfer that will, for example, charge mobile phones or laptops without needing cables.

  4. Solar Energy That Doesn’t Block The View

    A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window.

  5. New Dark Matter Detector Gets Green Light

    A new search for dark matter will soon be underway after a second generation experiment was selected by US funding agencies. By Gail Wilson

  6. Laser 'Lightning Rods' Channel Electricity Through Thin Air

    By zapping the air with a pair of powerful laser bursts, researchers at the University of Arizona have created highly focused pathways that can channel electricity through the atmosphere.

  7. Exoplanet Measured With Remarkable Precision

    Barely 30 years ago, the only planets astronomers had found were located right here in our own solar system. The Milky Way is chock-full of stars, millions of them similar to our own sun. Yet the tally of known worlds in other star systems was exactly zero.

  8. Meadowlark Optics Acquires Commercial Products Business Unit From Boulder Nonlinear Systems

    Meadowlark Optics (Meadowlark) is pleased to announce that on July 13, 2014, Meadowlark acquired the Commercial Products Group of Boulder Nonlinear Systems (BNS).

  9. Promising Ferroelectric Materials Suffer From Unexpected Electric Polarizations

    Electronic devices with unprecedented efficiency and data storage may someday run on ferroelectrics—remarkable materials that use built-in electric polarizations to read and write digital information, outperforming the magnets inside most popular data-driven technology.

  10. 'Cavity Protection Effect' Helps To Conserve Quantum Information

    The electronics we use for our computers only knows two different states: zero or one. Quantum systems on the other hand can be in different states at once, they can store a superposition of "zero" and "one".
