  1. High-Contrast Imaging For Cancer Therapy With Protons

    Medical physicist Dr. Aswin Hoffmann and his team from the Institute of Radiooncology – OncoRay at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) are the first researchers worldwide to combine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with a proton beam, thus demonstrating that in principle, this commonly used imaging method can indeed work with particle beam cancer treatments.

  2. Lasers Could Take 3D Printing To Next Level At Clemson University

    Cars that go more than 1,000 miles on a single fill-up and smartphones that can run for days without recharging are among the possibilities that could come out of a new Clemson University research project that brings together 3D printing and laser processing.

  3. Physicists Conduct Study Of Terahertz Radiation In Liquids

    A research team from ITMO University and the University of Rochester (the USA) have conducted a study on the formation of terahertz radiation in liquids.

  4. Quantum Optics: New Tricks Needed

    Since the discovery of quantum mechanics, in the early 20th century, physicists have relied on optics to test its fundamentals.

  5. Atomic Jet – The First Lens For Extreme-Ultraviolet Light Developed

    Scientists from the Max Born Institute (MBI) have developed the first refractive lens that focuses extreme ultraviolet beams. Instead of using a glass lens, which is non-transparent in the extreme-ultraviolet region, the researchers have demonstrated a lens that is formed by a jet of atoms.

  6. SPIE Industry Workshop Program February 06, 2019: How To Get the Most Out Of Optics, Lasers, And Detectors
