See-Through Sensors Developed For Gorilla Glass Displays
2014-06-19 12:59:33

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers have developed a new technology that in the future could provide greater security for mobile phones and allow handsets to track a user's biometrics all from the screen. The smartphone display could be embedded with layer upon layer of sensors, and these could track one's temperature, assess blood sugar levels for those who are diabetic, and even analyze DNA. The same technology could make it harder for a phone to be cloned....

New Method Could Make Sub-wavelength Images At Radio Frequencies
2014-06-18 03:12:08

By Laura Ost, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Imaging and mapping of electric fields at radio frequencies (RF) currently requires the use of metallic structures such as dipoles, probes and reference antennas. To make such measurements efficiently, the size of these structures needs to be on the order of the wavelength of the RF fields to be mapped. This poses practical limitations on the smallest features that can be measured. New theoretical and experimental work...

Researchers Demonstrate Strange Physics Turns Off laser
2014-06-18 03:25:07

By Steven Schultz, Princeton University Inspired by anomalies that arise in certain mathematical equations, researchers have demonstrated a laser system that paradoxically turns off when more power is added rather than becoming continuously brighter. The finding by a team of researchers at Vienna University of Technology and Princeton University, could lead to new ways to manipulate the interaction of electronics and light, an important tool in modern communications networks and...

Researchers Create Light-trapping Nanostructure Using Genetic-inspired Approach
2014-06-16 03:26:13

University of Rochester Physicists at the University of Rochester have created a silicon nanocavity that allows light to be trapped longer than in other similarly-sized optical cavities. An innovative design approach, which mimics evolutionary biology, allowed them to achieve a 10-fold improvement on the performance of previous nanocavities. In a paper published in Applied Physics Letters today and featured on the cover, the scientists demonstrate they have confined light in a...
