  4. Mirrorcle Laser-Cuts Ribbon On Cleanroom Facility For Volume MEMS Mirror Production
    12/6/2018

    In a ribbon cutting ceremony Mirrorcle Technologies inaugurated its new cleanroom space at the company’s Richmond, CA headquarters. Reflecting the company’s core competency of reliable optical beam-steering, the ribbon was cut by one of company’s latest products – a laser beam Scan Module which features a powerful 1W, blue (450nm) laser that was developed for the emerging dynamic solid-state lighting (phosphor lighting) market.

  5. Form-Fitting, Nanoscale Sensors Now Make Sense
    12/6/2018

    What if a sensor sensing a thing could be part of the thing itself? Rice University engineers believe they have a two-dimensional solution to do just that.

  6. New X-Ray Imaging Approach Could Boost Nanoscale Resolution For Advanced Photon Source Upgrade
    12/6/2018

    A long-standing problem in optics holds that an improved resolution in imaging is offset by a loss in the depth of focus.

  7. Using Quantum Entanglement To Study Proteins
    12/6/2018

    For the first time, a University of Michigan chemist has used quantum entanglement to examine protein structures, a process that requires only a very small number of photons of light.
