Some of the Navy's futuristic weapons sound like something out of "Star Wars," with lasers designed to shoot down aerial drones and electric guns that fire projectiles at hypersonic speeds.
Nanoplasmonics—the study of light manipulation on the nanometer scale—has contributed to the production of novel devices for chemical and biological sensing, signal processing and solar energy. However, components at ...
The 27-kilometre ring that today houses the Large Hadron Collider was originally built for its predecessor, the Large Electron-Positron Collider (LEP). LEP is still the most powerful lepton accelerator ever built.
Researchers at New York University have developed a method for creating and directing fast moving waves in magnetic fields that have the potential to enhance communication and information processing in computer chips and ...
Array of perfect nanometer-scale spheres that can control the flow of visible light may find use in invisibility cloaks
The optical properties of a material are predominantly determined by its constituent atoms and electrons and the way that these respond to electromagnetic waves. In natural materials, the diversity of possible optical characteristics ...
(Phys.org) —Getting the blues is rarely a desirable experience—unless you're a solar cell, that is.
EPFL scientists have developed an innovative mathematical method to greatly improve computer modeling of metamaterials.
(Phys.org) —The weak force is, for laymen, the least known of the quartet of interactions that run the universe as we know it.
