(Phys.org)—Quantum physicists from ETH Zurich have discovered special properties in a laser, thanks to which portable devices can be built to analyse gases and liquids accurately and reliably in the future.
The best method to obtain the most precise information on the inner structure of atoms and molecules is to excite them by means of resonant laser light. Unfortunately, just this laser light (above a certain intensity) can ...
(Phys.org)—Suppose you are sick enough to go to an emergency room. A physician examines you and decides that some blood tests are warranted. A phlebotomist draws the blood and sends it to a lab for testing. The results ...
A metal object can be made invisible with the help of ordinary plastic, Pekka Alitalo and Constantinos Valagiannopoulos, researchers from the School of Electrical Engineering, have shown in their study.
(Phys.org)—Researchers from Cardiff University have discovered a new property of black holes: their dying tones could reveal the cosmic crash that produced them.
(Phys.org)—Beams of light could one day replace the jumble of wires under a car bonnet, leading to lighter-weight and more fuel-efficient vehicles.
(Phys.org)—University of Georgia researchers have employed specially designed nanomaterials to develop a new, label-free DNA detection method that promises to reduce the cost and complexity of common genetic tests.
By affixing nanoscale gold spheres onto a microscopic bead of glass, researchers have created a super-sensor that can detect even single samples of the smallest known viruses. The sensor uses a peculiar behavior of light ...
(Phys.org) -- The growing e-security issue is being tackled through nanotechnology at Swinburne University of Technology.
(Phys.org) -- Cornell researchers have developed a new method of generating terahertz signals on an inexpensive silicon chip, offering possible applications in medical imaging, security scanning and wireless data transfer.
