Scientists at the University of Minnesota have invented a unique microscale optical device that could dramatically increase download speeds while lowering bandwidth costs.
An international team of scientists has developed a laser with a frequency stability previously unequalled.
Researchers have learned how to mass produce tiny mechanical devices that could help cell phone users avoid the nuisance of dropped calls and slow downloads.
Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley researchers record first direct observations of quantum effects in an optomechanical system
An optical switch developed at the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) spurs the prospective integration of photonics and electronics.
A team of physicists in Barcelona, Spain have for the first time fabricated and tested the world’s most sensitive Nanomechanical sensor, capable of detecting changes in mass of 1.7 yoctograms -- roughly the mass of a single proton.
Physicists in Low Temperature Laboratory of Aalto University have shown how a nanomechanical oscillator can be used for detection and amplification of feeble radio waves or microwaves.
Laser frequency combs—extraordinarily precise tools for measuring frequencies (or colors) of light—have helped propel advances in timekeeping, trace gas detection and related physics research to new heights in the past decade.
Cornell scientists have surpassed two major milestones toward a novel, exceedingly powerful X-ray source: A record-breaking electron gun emittance and a successfully tested prototype of a superconducting linac cavity.
A microlaser no bigger than a pinprick can accurately detect and count individual viruses, the particles that jumpstart cloud formation or those that contaminate the air we breathe.
