While those Verizon and AT&T commercials may claim that the respective carrier has the “fastest” network for mobile phones, new communications technology could make today’s 3G and 4G networks look as antiquated as the telegram.

Scientists Confirm First 'Frequency Comb' To Probe Ultraviolet Wavelengths
2012-02-02 05:00:46

Physicists at JILA have created the first "frequency comb" in the extreme ultraviolet band of the spectrum, high-energy light less than 100 nanometers (nm) in wavelength.

A Smarter Way To Make Ultraviolet Light Beams
