New novel application can realistically mimic space radiation.
Researchers from Princeton University have discovered a way to improve the light harvesting rates of the cryptophyte algae Chroomonas mesostigmatica: quantum coherence.
A team of researchers from Technion - Israel Institute of Technology has created laser emissions from the interaction of light and water waves, calling it "water-wave laser." The new laser could prove useful in tiny sensors used for testing new drug therapies.
A laser-based remote-sensing equipment called lidar, which is used in observing planets, moons and asteroids, could provide help archaeologists in finding fossils and bones hidden below Earth’s surface.
ETH Zurich has tested what most people can’t even wrap their heads around; electrons oscillating at near petahertz levels.
German researchers have used 3-D printing to make a micro camera small enough to enter a syringe needle and get injected into the human body.
Can stars produce sound? Well, a chance discovery has revealed that they just may be able to, though us mere humans can't hear it.
A newly developed laser the size of a grain of rice could lead the way to advances in quantum computing, new research says.
Wouldn't it be nice if you didn't have to inspect each and every apple, plum, or pear for ripeness at the grocery store? Standing at a fruit stand assessing potential purchases is not only time consuming, but relatively inaccurate. Now researchers have introduced a device that helps fruit suppliers measure ripeness, allowing for their fruits to hit shelves and stands at the perfect time.
NASA's Mars Curiosity rover lasered a baseball-sized Martian rock just last weekend, and experts got to see the flash of a resulting plasma plume for the first time.
NASA will be taking a deep look at ice-melt near the polar Arctic in future summers, measuring thinning ice and snow-melt with pulses of green laser light.
A Hawaiian utility company is experimenting with using brightly colored laser lights to act as a "fence" around utility wires and poles, protecting birds who commonly fly straight into the high power lines during times of low visibility.
It looks as though researchers may have found a way to make smartphone apps even smarter with new see-through sensors that could possibly commercialize phones to have biomedical and additional computing capabilities.
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.
