Researchers Demonstrate Leap Forward In Optical Coating Technology
2013-07-23 10:07:55

University of Vienna Although it may not be immediately obvious, the mechanical properties of optical components have a significant impact on the performance of lasers employed in precision sensing applications. Currently, the mechanical damping of such components, and the inherent mechanical fluctuations they generate, present a roadblock to further advancement of ever more precise measurements of time and space. For the past decade, researchers in the precision measurement community have...

There are several ways to "trap" a beam of light — usually with mirrors, other reflective surfaces, or high-tech materials such as photonic crystals. But now researchers at MIT have discovered a new method to trap light that could find a wide variety of applications. The new system, devised through computer modeling and then demonstrated experimentally, pits light waves against light waves: It sets up two waves that have the same wavelength, but exactly opposite phases...

New Way Fish Camouflage Themselves In The Ocean Discovered
2013-06-03 18:58:18

University of Texas at Austin Lookdowns outperforms by up to 80 percent the 'mirror' strategy that was previously thought to be state-of-the-art in fish camouflage Fish can hide in the open ocean by manipulating how light reflects off their skin, according to researchers at The University of Texas at Austin. The discovery could someday lead to the development of new camouflage materials for use in the ocean, and it overturns 40 years of conventional wisdom about fish camouflage. The...

Practice Makes Perfect With Mirror Placement On Webb Telescope
2013-03-20 12:06:53

NASA NASA engineers and scientists have been making practice runs to ensure the placement of primary mirror segments on the James Webb Space Telescope go perfectly when the flight equipment is ready. NASA issued a video and photos showing the practice run in the giant clean room at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. The video explains and shows how a grey/silver robotic "arm" is used to install the surrogate mirrors onto a test copy of a structure called the telescope...

Spectrophobia
2013-12-24 12:23:34

Spectrophobia is a kind of specific phobia involving a morbid fear of mirrors. Catoptrophobia is the fear of mirrors. This phobia is distinct from Eisoptrophobia, which is the fear of your own reflection. In general, an individual suffering from this phobia has been traumatized in an event where they believe they have seen or heard apparitions or ghosts. The individual could also become traumatized by television shows, nightmares, or horror films. This fear could be the result of a trauma...

Adaptive Optics -- Adaptive optics is a technology to improve the performance of Earth-based telescopes, reversing the effect of atmospheric distortions. When light from a star or another astronomical object enters the Earth's atmosphere, the different temperature layers and different wind speeds distort and move the image in various ways (see seeing for a proper discussion). The net result is that an 8 meters or 10 meters telescope (like the VLT or Keck), while theoretically capable...
