Researchers reveal missing optical localized gap modes

Electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) is a typical quantum destructive interference effect, which possesses many striking properties such as elimination of optical absorption, reduction of group velocity and remarkable ...

Efficiency in photocatalysis found to be site-sensitive

Prof. Huang Weixin and Zhang Qun from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), together with domestic collaborators, probed into the photocatalytic oxidation of methanol ...

New skills of graphene: Tunable lattice vibrations

Without electronics and photonics, there would be no computers, smartphones, sensors, or information and communication technologies. In the coming years, the new field of phononics may further expand these options. That field ...

Galaxy Mrk 335 examined with AstroSat

Using the AstroSat spacecraft, Indian astronomers have performed multiwavelength observations of a Narrow-Line Seyfert 1 (NLS1) galaxy known as Mrk 335. Results of this investigation, presented in a paper published February ...

Search for axions from nearby star Betelgeuse comes up empty

The elusive axion particle is many times lighter than an electron, with properties that barely make an impression on ordinary matter. As such, the ghost-like particle is a leading contender as a component of dark matter—a ...
