New technology to fabricate high-performance, flexible optical devices
A team of researchers at the University of Delaware has developed a way to fabricate high-performance flexible optical devices by combining chalcogenide glass and polymers.
Verifying the future of quantum computing
Physicists are one step closer to proving the reliability of a quantum computer – a machine which promises to revolutionise the way we trade over the internet and provide new tools to perform powerful simulations.
Enhanced NIST instrument enables high-speed chemical imaging of tissues
A research team from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), working with the Cleveland Clinic, has demonstrated a dramatically improved technique for analyzing biological cells and tissues ...
Vibrational motion of a single molecule measured in real time
For the first time, chemists have succeeded in measuring vibrational motion of a single molecule with a femtosecond time resolution. The study reveals how vibration of a single molecule differs from the behaviour of larger ...
