Since 2000, John Pendry's work on metamaterials has been at the van guard of efforts to create a perfect image – images with perfect resolution that can stem from light being moved in odd directions to create, among other tricks of the light, the illusion of invisibility...
Ultrafast fiber laser manufacturer Fianium introduces its versatile new FP1060-HE range. FP1060-HE lasers are based on a robust, reliable modelocked fibre laser generating high-energy ultrafast pulses with excellent beam quality and pointing stability in the most challenging of environments.
With the goal of minimizing the side effects of chemotherapy on healthy tissues, a team of researchers at the Center for Self-assembly and Complexity, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) have developed novel nanocontainers able to deliver anticancer drugs at precise timing and location.
Tiny, easy-to-produce particles, called quantum dots, may soon take the place of more expensive single crystal semiconductors in advanced electronics found in solar panels, camera sensors and medical imaging tools.
Following the launch of Aeolus on 22 August, this extraordinary satellite’s instrument has been turned on and is now emitting pulses of ultraviolet light from its laser, which is fundamental to measuring Earth’s wind. And, this remarkable mission has also already returned a tantalising glimpse of the data it will provide.
The U.S. Display Consortium (San Jose, CA) has awarded a joint-funding development contract to Fresnel Optics (Rochester, NY) for the development of imaging screen systems for rear-projection monitors.
Researchers have succeeded in creating an efficient quantum-mechanical light-matter interface using a microscopic cavity. Within this cavity, a single photon is emitted and absorbed up to 10 times by an artificial atom.
