  1. Researchers Finally Prove Existence Of Excitonium, A New Form Of Matter

    Scientists using a newly developed spectroscopic technique have finally proven the existence of excitonium, a new form of matter first theorized almost half a century ago.

  2. AdValue Photonics' Short-Pulse Fiber Lasers

    The performance characteristics of AdValue Photonics' fiber lasers have enabled glass hole drilling with unmatched hole quality and process speed. High precision zero-taper, straight inner-wall holes in transparent glass materials have been produced with chip sizes below 20µm.

  3. Once Shed Through - Threefold Information Gain

    No matter how big cell phones or computers are - the function of such electronic devices depends above all on the interaction of different materials. 

  4. Three Kinds Of Information From A Single X-Ray Measurement

    Whatever the size of mobile phones or computers are, the way in which such electronic devices operate relies on the interaction between various materials.

  5. Scientists Channel Graphene To Understand Filtration And Ion Transport Into Cells

    Tiny pores at a cell’s entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms—ions—but blocking others.

  6. Novel Lenses Enable X-Ray Microscopy With Record Resolution

    Scientists have developed novel lenses that enable X-ray microscopy with record resolution in the nanometre regime. Using new materials, the research team led by DESY scientist Saša Bajt from the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) has perfected the design of specialised X-ray optics and achieved a focus spot size with a diameter of less than ten nanometres.

  7. Ultraviolet Microscope To Dramatically Speed Up Lab Tests

    A microscope using ultraviolet (UV) light to provide high-resolution histological images promises to significantly shorten the amount of time diagnostic tests are processed.

  8. Solar Power Advances Possible With New ‘Double-Glazing’ Device

    A new ‘double-glazing’ solar power device – which is unlike any existing solar panel and opens up fresh opportunities to develop more advanced photovoltaics – has been invented by University of Warwick researchers.

  9. Innovative System Images Photosynthesis To Provide Picture Of Plant Health

    Researchers have developed a new imaging system that is designed to monitor the health of crops in the field or greenhouse.

  10. Massive Primordial Galaxies Found In ‘Halo’ Of Dark Matter

    Observations of two galaxies made with the National Science Foundation-funded Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) radio telescope suggest that large galaxies formed faster than scientists had previously thought.
