Single-pixel 'multiplex' captures elusive terahertz images
A novel metamaterial enables a fast, efficient and high-fidelity terahertz radiation imaging system capable of manipulating the stubborn electromagnetic waves, advancing a technology with potential applications ...
Fast photon control brings quantum photonic technologies closer
Lenses can bend light and sound in almost any direction
Absorption straightens the drunken stagger of light
(Phys.org) —In a study partly funded by the FOM Foundation, physicists from the University of Twente and Yale University have discovered that light travelling through an opaque material follows a straighter ...
Researchers glimpse the inside of a photonic crystal
Scientists discover how to turn light into matter after 80-year quest
Imperial College London physicists have discovered how to create matter from light - a feat thought impossible when the idea was first theorised 80 years ago.
Laser physics upside down
At the Vienna University of Technology a system of coupled lasers has been created which exhibits truly paradoxical behaviour: An increase in energy supply switches the lasers off, reducing the energy can ...
New way to store light could prove useful for optical communication
Researcher pushes the limits of light to improve performance in communication, fabrication, and medical imaging
The fields of data communication, fabrication, and ultrasound imaging share a common challenge when it comes to improving speed and efficiency: light's diffraction limit. Nicholas Fang thinks his group at MIT might have found ...
