'Trapped Rainbow' Effect Demonstrated By Invisibility Cloak Array
2012-05-26 04:42:44

Researchers from the Towson University and University of Maryland announced on Friday that they had essentially trapped a rainbow, assembling an array consisting of over 25,000 miniature invisibility cloaks to slow light to a near halt. The invisibility cloak array, which lead author Dr. Vera Smolyaninova and colleagues describe in the latest edition of the Institute of Physics' and German Physical Society's New Journal of Physics, is the first device of its kind and is comprised of cloaks...

Many people anticipating the creation of an invisibility cloak might be surprised to learn that a group of American researchers has created 25 000 individual cloaks. But before you rush to buy one from your local shop, the cloaks are just 30 micrometers in diameter and are laid out together on a 25 millimeter gold sheet. This array of invisibility cloaks is the first of its kind and has been created by researchers from Towson University and University of Maryland who present their study...

Device Measures Glucose In Saliva
2012-01-24 05:11:32

Engineers at Brown University have designed a biological device that can measure glucose concentrations in human saliva. The technique could eliminate the need for diabetics to draw blood to check their glucose levels. The biochip uses plasmonic interferometers and could be used to measure a range of biological and environmental substances. Results are published in Nano Letters. For the 26 million Americans with diabetes, drawing blood is the most prevalent way to check glucose levels. It...
