  1. Improving The Femtosecond Ultrashort Pulse Laser

    MXenes, conductive materials widely used in many industries, now have one more promising application: helping lasers fire extremely short femtosecond pulses, which last just millionths of a billionth of a second.

  2. Wind Satellite Vacuum Packed

    With liftoff on the horizon, ESA’s Aeolus satellite is going through its last round of tests to make sure that this complex mission will work in orbit.

  3. Opto Diode Presents BXT2-17TF - Two-Stage, Cooled, Packaged Infrared (IR) Detector

    Opto Diode Corporation, an ITW company, presents the BXT2-17TF, a single-channel, infrared (IR) detector with an integrated 4.67 µm optical bandpass silicon filter. The high-performance lead selenide (PbSe) cooled device provides excellent sensitivity for industrial carbon monoxide (CO) detection in harsh environments.

  4. Source Of Gravitational Waves Discovered)

    Shortly after the announcement of the Nobel Prize in Physics 2017 for the US researchers Rainer Weiss, Barry Barish and Kip Thorne for the first direct detection of gravitational waves, scientists report the next breakthrough in the young field: The observatories LIGO in the USA and VIRGO in Italy have registered gravitational waves of a merging pair of neutron stars for the first time.

  5. GLOBALFOUNDRIES Introduces New Automotive Platform For Connected Cars

    GLOBALFOUNDRIES today unveiled AutoPro™, a new platform designed to provide automotive customers a broad set of technology solutions and manufacturing services that minimize certification efforts and speed time-to-market.
