    Researchers from the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) in Switzerland, Romain Sibille and Nicolas Gauthier, are studying a fascinating sample using neutrons at the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

  2. Stanford Researchers Investigate Behavior In Quantum Systems With A Toy-Inspired Technique
    5/2/2018

    With its suspended metallic spheres that clack back and forth, Newton’s cradle is more than a popular desktop plaything. It has taught a generation of students about conservation of momentum and energy.

  3. Ultrafast Laser Pulse Created By Golden Nanoparticles
    5/2/2018

    New study shows that organic dye material combined with metallic nanostructures can provide ultrafast lasing dynamics with short and rapidly appearing laser pulses.

  4. Diehl And Boeing Cooperate For GBU-54 Laser JDAM Procurement In Germany
    5/1/2018

    At the ILA International Air Show in Berlin, Diehl Defence and Boeing Defense, Space & Security signed a Teaming Agreement on cooperation of GBU-54 Laser JDAM weapon systems in Germany.

  5. New Linear APD Arrays For Lidar Measuring
    5/1/2018

    The LASER COMPONENTS Detector Group expands its standard range of linear Si APD arrays by LCC44 housings containing 8 and 16 elements. The SMD components can be mounted on circuit boards, while also providing enough space for the integrated multi-channel amplifier circuit. Their operation only requires the voltage for the array and 5 V for the electronics.

  6. Sierra-Olympic’s New Optical Gas Imaging Camera Core - Ventus™ OGI
    5/1/2018

    Sierra-Olympic Technologies, supplier of infrared (IR) and thermal imaging components, cameras, and systems solutions for innovative imaging applications, will premiere the new VentusOGI,  an optical gas imaging camera core at AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2018  May 1 - 3, Colorado Convention Center, Denver, Colorado, in booth # 3528. The revolutionary camera with a 640 x 512, 15-micron pixel-pitch midwave-infrared (MWIR) detector array provides unmatched thermal sensitivity and weighs only 580 grams, with lens.

  7. Dielectric Metamaterial Is Dynamically Tuned By Light
    5/1/2018

    Researchers at Duke University have built the first metal-free, dynamically tunable metamaterial for controlling electromagnetic waves.

  8. Superman’s Laser Vision A Step Closer To Reality
    5/1/2018

    Superman’s ability to shoot laser beams from his eyes has come a step closer to reality, with discoveries made by a research team at the University of St Andrews.

  9. Research Removes Obstacle To Lasers And Computers Working At Speed Of Light
    4/30/2018

    By juxtaposing contrasting properties of two different nanomaterials, a team of Clemson University physicists has developed an optical diode that enables light to move in one direction, a step that could lead to high-energy lasers and optical computers capable of processing data at the speed of light.

  10. Laser Frequency Combs May Be The Future Of Wi-Fi
    4/30/2018

    Wi-Fi and cellular data traffic are increasing exponentially but, unless the capacity of wireless links can be increased, all that traffic is bound to lead to unacceptable bottlenecks.
