Critical Interplay Discovered Between Cosmic Dust, Magnetic Fields
2013-09-27 10:40:02

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Interstellar magnetic fields can be found throughout the Milky Way and other similar galaxies. They are thought to be a key regulator in star formation and the propagation of cosmic rays. A new study published in The Astrophysical Journal has provided new insights for scientists looking to probe the strength and structure of these magnetic fields, a highly difficult phenomenon to accurately measure. To learn more about interstellar...

Light Transistor Developed By TU Vienna
2013-07-08 10:08:30

Vienna University of Technology TU Vienna has managed to turn the oscillation direction of beams of light -- simply by applying an electrical current to a special material. This way, a transistor can be built that functions with light instead of electrical current. Light can oscillate in different directions, as we can see in the 3D cinema: Each lens of the glasses only allows light of a particular oscillation direction to pass through. However, changing the polarization direction of...

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...

New Tool For Quantum Optics

Vienna University of Technology A light wave oscillates perpendicular to its propagation direction — that is what students learn in school. However, scientists of the Vienna University of Technology (TU Vienna) now perform atom-physics experiments with light oscillating in the longitudinal direction. Storing light in a bottle is easier than one might think: Laser light can be coupled into an optical glass fiber in such a way that it does not travel along the fiber but rather...
