Researchers design material that more effectively slows light

Researchers at The University of Alabama designed and made a material that manipulates the speed of light in a new, more effective way than previous methods, according to findings recently published in Scientific Reports ...

New material gives visible light an infinite wavelength

Researchers from the FOM Institute AMOLF and the University of Pennsylvania have fabricated a material which gives visible light a nearly infinite wavelength. The new metamaterial is made by stacking silver and silicon nitride ...

Researchers slow light to a crawl in liquid crystal matrix

(Phys.org) —Light traveling in a vacuum is the Universe's ultimate speed demon, racing along at approximately 300,000 kilometers per second. Now scientists have found an effective new way to put a speed bump in light's ...

Subaru's 3-D view of Stephan's Quintet

Subaru Telescope has added another dimension of information about one of the most studied of all compact galaxy groups—Stephan's Quintet. Located within the borders of the constellation Pegasus, Stephan's Quintet consists ...
