  1. Lockheed Martin Introduces Maritime Test Bed To Demonstrate Advanced Analytical Capabilities For U.S. Navy

    Using a newly developed advanced maritime test bed, Lockheed Martin recently demonstrated how continually evolving technologies such as data fusion and predictive analytics can be used to share intelligence quickly and securely – even in limited bandwidth naval settings.

  2. Beam Of Light On-Off 'Switch' Triggers And Reverses Paralysis In Animals
    In an advance with overtones of Star Trek phasers and other sci-fi ray guns, scientists in Canada are reporting development of an internal on-off "switch" that paralyzes animals when exposed to a beam of ultraviolet light.
  3. Lighting The Way On Heart Attacks

    There are lots of ways to treat a heart attack – CPR, aspirin, clot-busters and more. Now CU medical school researchers have found a new candidate: Intense light.

  4. Downsizing The Particle Accelerator

    Munich physicists have succeeded in demonstrating plasma wakefield acceleration of subatomic particles in a miniaturized, laser-driven model. The new system provides a broader basis for the development of the next generation of particle accelerators.

  5. New Laser Makes Silicon ‘Sing’

    Yale scientists have created a new type of silicon laser that uses sound waves to amplify light. A study about the discovery appears in the online edition of the journal Science.

  6. Drexel Engineers' Recipe For 'Sandwiching' Atomic Layers Expands Possibilities For Making Materials That Store Energy

    The scientists whose job it is to test the limits of what nature—specifically chemistry— will allow to exist, just set up shop on some new real estate on the Periodic Table.

  7. 4D Technology Introduces Improved AccuFiz Laser Interferometer

    4D Technology Corporation, manufacturer of optical metrology systems, has introduced its newly improved AccuFiz compact laser interferometer for accurate, repeatable measurement of surface shape and transmitted wavefront quality.
