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...

[WATCH VIDEO: Smartphone Biosensor Demonstration] Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Smartphones are increasingly becoming more beneficial as tools for uses other than what they were originally intended for. While people can still be found talking and texting more than ever, many have found that pushing a few buttons on their mobile devices helps them do much more than checking their e-mail or finding specific information over the Web. Researchers have...

Jedidiah Becker for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Color is all around us - from painted buildings, to stop signs, to butterfly wings. Traditionally, colorful compounds, called pigments, are added to material to give them the desired color. However, color can often fade and is susceptible to damage from environmental conditions, like rain. A more novel way to create color is to synthesize polymers to create surface types and colors for specific applications. However, creating...


Word of the Day
negawatt
  • A unit of saved energy.
Coined by Amory Lovins, chairman of the Rocky Mountain Institute as a contraction of negative watt on the model of similar compounds like megawatt.
