University of Illinois scientists say they have created the first acoustic superlens, an innovation that could impact several technologies. The researchers, led by Professor Nicholas Fang, said their achievement could have practical implications for high-resolution ultrasound imaging, non-destructive structural testing of buildings and bridges, and underwater stealth technology. The scientists said they successfully focused ultrasound waves through a flat metamaterial lens onto a spot about...

Caesium fountains are more accurate than "normal" atomic caesium clocks, because in fountains the caesium atoms are cooled down with the aid of laser beams and come ever slower - from a rapid velocity at room temperature to a slow "creep pace" of a few centimetres per second at a temperature close to the absolute zero point.

Recent research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has demonstrated that thin films made of “metamaterials”—manmade composites engineered to offer strange combinations of electromagnetic properties—can reduce the size of resonating circuits that generate microwaves. The work is a step forward in the worldwide quest to further shrink electronic devices such as cell phones, radios, and radar equipment.
