Detection teams can now safely determine the location of buried landmines from a remote location
The European Space Agency (ESA) will use optical communications – using lasers to signal across space – to deliver scientific discoveries from space to Earth.
A new UCLA study showed that focal laser ablation is safe and effective in treating men with intermediate risk of prostate cancer.
Physicists have used the world's biggest and most powerful laser to zap and crush diamonds, nature's hardest material, the results of which can possibly reveal more about the cores of giant planets, US scientists report.
NASA just beamed down a video from the International Space Station (ISS) using revolutionary laser-based technology that should make communication from orbit to Earth nearly instantaneous.
Researchers have demonstrated a way to make power-efficient laser-like beams without using light. These beams, made with electrical current, reportedly use 1,000 times less power than pure light beams, and function efficiently even at room temperature.
Scientists behind a new theoretical study suggest that laser-plasma particle accelerators, which offer a cheaper and smaller version of traditional particle accelerators, might be easier to construct than previously thought.
