A laser focus on super water-repellent metals

In a laboratory at the University of Rochester, researchers are using lasers to change the surface of metals in incredible ways, such as making them super water-repellent without the use of special coatings, paints, or solvents.

Tiny engine powered by demixing fluid

An international team of researchers has developed a tiny, liquid-based engine powered by a demixing fluid. In their paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters, the group describes their little engine and possible ...

A super-resolution view of chemical reactions

Researchers from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences have demonstrated, using a super-resolution microscopic technique, how to follow chemical reactions taking place in very small volumes. ...

Scientists achieve high power with new smaller laser

An international team of scientists has produced the first high-powered, randomly polarised laser beam with a "Q switch" laser, which typically emits pulses of light so brief that they're measured in nanoseconds. Lasers are ...

Accelerating light beams in curved space

By shining a laser along the inside shell of an incandescent light bulb, physicists have performed the first experimental demonstration of an accelerating light beam in curved space. Rather than moving along a geodesic trajectory ...
