Latest Comb Stories
Laser frequency combs—extraordinarily precise tools for measuring frequencies (or colors) of light—have helped propel advances in timekeeping, trace gas detection and related physics research to new heights in the past decade.
The National Pediculosis Association ® (NPA) kicks off another Comb First! campaign for back-to-school this September.
Effective and non-toxic treatments, such as Quit Nits Complete Head Lice Kit, can kill head lice and prevent re-infestation without exposing children, babies and pregnant or nursing mothers to pesticide risks. Ideal for back to school season, The Quit Nits Complete Lice Kit contains a 4 fl. oz.
Four years after the LouseBuster prototype made headlines when research showed the chemical-free, warm-air device wiped out head lice on children, a new study reveals that a revamped, government-cleared model is highly effective.
Physicists at the University of Maryland have found a way to turn a precision measurement device into a versatile tool for manipulating quantum bits (qubits).
Finally, an optical frequency comb that visibly lives up to its name.

Scientists at the University of Konstanz in Germany and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated an ultrafast laser that offers a record combination of high speed, short pulses and high average power. The same NIST group also has shown that this type of laser, when used as a frequency combâ€”an ultraprecise technique for measuring different colors of lightâ€”could boost the sensitivity of astronomical tools searching for other Earthlike planets as...
The cockscombs are edible and ornamental plants named for their brightly colored flower heads, comprising the genus Celosia of the family Amaranthaceae (subfamily Amaranthoideae). They are similar in appearance and uses to the amaranths. Silver cockscomb is grown as a leaf vegetable and pseudo-cereal, especially in West and Central Africa and Southeast Asia. It is also the most important leaf vegetable of southern Nigeria. The crested cockscomb is a common garden ornamental plant in...
