Algorithm Developed To Control Light Patterns
2012-11-13 16:29:59

Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne [ Watch The Video ] EPFL scientists have developed an algorithm to control light patterns called "caustics" and organize them into coherent images It's a simple, transparent acrylic plate — nothing embedded within it and nothing printed on its surface. Place it at a certain angle between a white wall and a light source, and a clear, coherent image appears of the face of Alan Turing, the famous British...

A Duke University professor and his graduate student have discovered a universal principle that unites the curious interplay of light and shadow on the surface of your morning coffee with the way gravity magnifies and distorts light from distant galaxies. They think scientists will be able to use violations of this principle to map unseen clumps of dark matter in the universe. Light rays naturally reflect off a curve like the inside surface of a coffee cup in a curving, ivy leaf pattern that...
