New nanostructured glass for imaging and recording developed

(PhysOrg.com) -- University of Southampton researchers have developed new nano-structured glass optical elements, which have applications in optical manipulation and will significantly reduce the cost of medical imaging.

The making of dust

(PhysOrg.com) -- On the Earth, dust particles are everywhere - under beds, on bookshelves, even floating in the air. We take dust for granted. Dust is also common in space, and it is found for example in the cold, dark molecular ...

Shrinking endoscopes with meta-optical fibers

Ultra-compact, agile endoscopes with a large field of view (FoV), long depth of field (DoF), and short rigid tip length are essential for developing minimally invasive operations and new experimental surgeries. As these fields ...

Customized fiber generates Bessel beams

An all fiber-based approach to generating special optical beams, called Bessel beams, could open up new applications in imaging, optical trapping and communications.

Solar telescope GREGOR unveils magnetic details of the sun

The Sun is our star and has a profound influence on our planet, life, and civilization. By studying the magnetism on the Sun, we can understand its influence on Earth and minimize damage of satellites and technological infrastructure. ...

Driven to diffraction

As anyone with an interest in photography will know, to get features such as a powerful zoom, you usually need a big camera. The reason is that most cameras rely on refraction, whereby the light passing through lenses slows ...
