Nearly five years ago, NASA and Lincoln Laboratory made history when the Lunar Laser Communication Demonstration (LLCD) used a pulsed laser beam to transmit data from a satellite orbiting the moon to Earth—more than 239,000 ...
The rainbow is not just colors—each color of light has its own frequency. The more frequencies you have, the higher the bandwidth for transmitting information.
To tame chaos in powerful semiconductor lasers, which causes instabilities, scientists have introduced another kind of chaos.
Transistor technology may improve speed, battery life for computers, mobile phones and other electronics
Purdue University researchers have developed transistor technology that shows potential for improving computers and mobile phones.
Dr. Giordano Mattoni, quantum researcher at TU Delft, and his collaborators have shown that the nano-electronic phase transition in a class of materials known as nickelates can be controlled by laser light. Their findings, ...
Lasers are widely used as high power sources of light operating at a specific frequency. But how does this frequency get selected when a laser is turned on, and how quickly?
How water solvates and transports protons is a fundamental question facing chemists and biologists alike and is vital to our understanding of processes such as photosynthesis and cellular respiration.
Osaka University-led researchers demonstrated that the perturbation of laser imprinting on a capsule for nuclear fusion fuel made from stiff and heavy materials was mitigated. Using the latest chemical vapor deposition (CVD) ...
Scientists found that relatively slow electrons are produced when intense lasers interact with small clusters of atoms, upturning current theories.
