X-ray vision through the water window

Physicists at ETH Zurich have developed the first high-repetition-rate laser source that produces coherent soft X-rays spanning the entire "water window." That technological breakthrough could enable a broad range of studies ...

3-D laser damage positioned by deep-learning method

Traditional online damage detection schemes can directly detect and characterize damage by imaging optical components. However, due to optical resolution, noise, shadows and reflections, the small-size damage points cannot ...

Scientists create the first diamond X-ray micro lens

After fourth-generation synchrotrons were invented (these are particle accelerators, which are, in fact, giant research facilities), there was an urgent need for a fundamentally new optics that could withstand high temperatures ...

Aerogels for solar devices and windows

In recent decades, the search for high-performance thermal insulation for buildings has prompted manufacturers to turn to aerogels. Invented in the 1930s, these remarkable materials are translucent, ultraporous, lighter than ...
