Adult stem cells transform faster with two lasers

Stem cell therapy requires a lot of human cells of a specific type. Shining a near-infrared laser on adult stem cells derived from human body fat makes the stem cells replicate 54% faster. Following that up with a green laser ...

Study suggests that silicon could be a photonics game-changer

New research from the University of Surrey has shown that silicon could be one of the most powerful materials for photonic informational manipulation—opening up new possibilities for the production of lasers and displays.

Sorting out nanodiamonds with fluorescent centers

Scientists have long been working on improving their ability to use lasers to move small objects without actually touching them. This method of 'optical trapping and manipulation' is already utilized in optics, biological ...

Twistoptics—A new way to control optical nonlinearity

Nonlinear optics, a study of how light interacts with matter, is critical to many photonic applications, from the green laser pointers we're all familiar with to intense broadband (white) light sources for quantum photonics ...
