An Ultra Secure Optical Communications Network With Temporal Cloaking
2013-06-06 10:07:26

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers at Purdue University have demonstrated a temporal cloaking device for optical communications that bends light to create holes in time, something that could have important implications for sending secret messages over fiber optic cables or thwarting would-be eavesdroppers. "More work has to be done before this approach finds practical application, but it does use technology that could integrate smoothly into the...

SAN MARCOS, Texas, June 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- By Quantum Materials Corporation (OTCQB:QTMM) - Since 1950, Kasha's Rule (1), a principle of photochemistry, held true that if a source of light excited a molecule enough, the molecule would fluoresce in a single color. In 2011, the Alivasatos group at DOE's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, using tetrapod quantum dots, broke Kasha's rule(2 )by causing them to emit two separate colors instead of just one. This dual emission is...

Strength Of CVD Graphene Revealed In New Study
2013-05-31 14:01:24

Columbia University In a new study, published in Science May 31, 2013, Columbia Engineering researchers demonstrate that graphene, even if stitched together from many small crystalline grains, is almost as strong as graphene in its perfect crystalline form. This work resolves a contradiction between theoretical simulations, which predicted that grain boundaries can be strong, and earlier experiments, which indicated that they were much weaker than the perfect lattice. Graphene consists...

Graphene Sensor Allows For Clear Photos In Low Light Scenarios
2013-05-31 04:44:12

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new camera sensor invented by a team at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) will reportedly allow for even clearer low-light images. The new graphene-based sensor is believed to be the first capable of detecting broad spectrum light, from the visible to mid-infrared, with high photoresponse or sensitivity. In other words, this sensor will open up opportunities to take better photos in dim conditions for all sorts of applications,...
