  1. Researchers To Test New Optical Fibre 3D Printing Technique
    7/2/2015

    Researchers at the University of Southampton are set to investigate using 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, techniques in the fabrication of optical fibre.

  2. New Technology Using Silver May Hold Key To Electronics Advances
    7/1/2015

    Engineers at Oregon State University have invented a way to fabricate silver, a highly conductive metal, for printed electronics that are produced at room temperature.

  3. Letting Go With Lasers
    7/1/2015

    Small objects tend to cling to everything. It's why parents dread hosting parties that involve confetti. It's why glitter is fun for crafts--until it finds its way onto everything else you touch.

  4. Producing Spin-Entangled Electrons
    7/1/2015

    A team from the RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science, along with collaborators from several Japanese institutions, have successfully produced pairs of spin-entangled electrons and demonstrated, for the first time, that these electrons remain entangled even when they are separated from one another on a chip.

  5. PI’s New Compact, Low Cost Mini Positioning Stages
    6/30/2015

    Physik Instrumente (PI) has recently launched the Q-521, a new miniature, piezo-driven linear positioner. The ultra-compact Q-521 is only 21mm wide, and comes with travel ranges of 12mm, 22mm, and 32mm.

  6. Making New Materials With Micro-Explosions
    6/30/2015

    Scientists have made exotic new materials by creating laser-induced micro-explosions in silicon, the common computer chip material.

  7. NASA Collaborates With DRS Technologies To Create Mid-Infrared Detector
    6/30/2015

    NASA scientist Xiaoli Sun and his industry partner have created the world’s first photon-counting detector sensitive to the mid-infrared wavelength bands — a spectral sweet spot for a number of remote-sensing applications, including the detection of greenhouse gases on Earth, Mars and other planetary bodies, as well as ice and frost on comets, asteroids and the moon.

  8. Homegrown Solution For Synchrotron Light Source
    6/30/2015

    It’s often said that necessity is the mother of invention. Such was the case for Ames Laboratory physicist Adam Kaminski who took the research challenge he was facing and turned it into a new solution that will help advance his research.

  9. Coherent Debuts Higher-Power Lasers For Pumping Amplifiers And Commercial Applications
    6/29/2015

    Coherent, Inc. released their new Revolution series of q-switched, green, pulsed lasers that offer higher power and other enhanced performance specifications. Revolution lasers are featured with power up to 80W at a wavelength of 527 nm, pulse rate flexibility, and an extremely smooth energy distribution of the beam profile.

  10. X-Rays And Electrons Join Forces To Map Catalytic Reactions In Real-Time
    6/29/2015

    A new technique pioneered at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory reveals atomic-scale changes during catalytic reactions in real time and under real operating conditions.
