Designing molecules A class of molecules whose size, structure and chemical composition have been optimized for photonic use could provide the demanding combination of properties needed to serve as the foundation for low-power, high-speed all-optical signal processing. All-optical switching could allow dramatic speed increases in telecommunications by eliminating the need to convert photonic signals to electronic signals "“ and back "“ for switching. All-optical processing could...

A "metal foam" that has a similar elasticity to bone could mean a new generation of  biomedical implants that would avoid bone rejection that often results from more rigid implant materials, such as titanium. Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed the metal foam, which is even lighter than solid aluminum and can be made of 100 percent steel or a combination of steel and aluminum. In a new paper, researchers have reported recent findings that, in addition to the...

Adding cerium oxide to phosphate glass rather than the commonly used silicate glass may make glasses that block ultraviolet light and have increased radiation damage resistance while remaining colorless, according to Penn State researchers. These cerium-containing phosphate glasses have many commercial applications for use in windows, sunglasses and solar cells. "We wanted to get larger amounts of cerium into glass, because of its beneficial properties, and then investigate the properties of...
