2013-09-26 07:51:56

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Scientists from Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have joined forces to create a never-before-seen form of matter that is said to behave like the legendary light sabers of Star Wars fame. Harvard physics professor Mikhail Lukin, MIT physics professor Vladan Vuletic and their colleagues were able to coax photons into binding together to form what they describe as “photonic molecules.” In...

Antimatter Method Could Provide Major Experimental Advantage
2013-01-07 07:27:31

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online By aiming a laser at antihydrogen atoms, researchers have found that they can force them to lose energy and plummet to temperatures 25-times colder than previously achieved -- a discovery which could greatly assist the study of the more elusive properties of antimatter. The method, which was developed by a team of experts from the US and Canada, is described in the most recent edition of the Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular...

JILA Team Demonstrates 'A New Way of Lasing': A 'Superradiant' Laser
2012-04-06 03:23:58

[ Watch the Video ] Physicists at JILA have demonstrated a novel “superradiant” laser design, which has the potential to be 100 to 1,000 times more stable than the best conventional visible lasers. This type of laser could boost the performance of the most advanced atomic clocks and related technologies, such as communications and navigation systems as well as space-based astronomical instruments. Described in the April 5, 2012, issue of Nature,* the JILA laser prototype...
