Air lasing: A new tool for atmospheric detection

Ultrafast laser technologies provide new strategies for remote sensing of atmospheric pollutants and hazardous biochemical agents due to their unique advantages of high peak power, short pulse duration and broad spectral ...

Ultrafast optical-magnetic memory device

Magnetic random-access memory (MRAM) technology offers substantial potential towards next-generation universal memory architecture. However, state-of-the-art MRAMs are still fundamentally constrained by a sub-nanosecond speed ...

Exploring a unique material with tunable properties

If you're old enough, you may still have a box of cassette or VHS tapes lying around. These storage devices were popular in the 1970s and 80s, but have since fallen into disuse, replaced by CDs and other digital media.

Watching the ultrafast dance moves of a laser plasma

Great leaps in science and technology have been propelled by recent advances in seeing fast evolving physical phenomena, as they happen. Femtosecond lasers from the infrared to the X-ray region have enabled us to 'watch', ...
