Karlsruhe Institute of Technology Researchers Exploit Optical Frequency Comb Sources on a Silicon Chip for Data Transmission in the Terabit Range Miniaturized optical frequency comb sources allow for transmission of data streams of several terabits per second over hundreds of kilometers – this has now been demonstrated by researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the Swiss École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in a experiment presented in the journal...

By Jason Szep CAMBRIDGE, Mass (Reuters) - Roy Glauber's 80-year journey to the Nobel Physics Prize began at age 14 when a childhood curiosity in the moon and stars gave way to a deeper fascination with a world closer to home: Earth. It was as a teenager awed by astronomy and the construction of telescopes that Glauber discovered physics while building a home-made spectroscope -- a device that splits light into colors to examine what things are made of. "I built things. I began by...

By Niklas Pollard STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Two Americans and a German won the Nobel Physics Prize on Tuesday for optical research giving extremely accurate measurements that could one day be used in deep space travel or three-dimensional holographic television. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the prize to Roy Glauber, John Hall and Germany's Theodor Haensch for studying light and harnessing lasers to create a "measuring stick" to gauge frequencies with extreme precision....

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Americans Roy Glauber and John Hall and Germany's Theodor Haensch won the 2005 Nobel Physics prize for their work in the field of optics, said the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences on Tuesday. The trio won the prize "for their contributions to the development of laser-based precision spectroscopy, including the optical frequency comb technique," the Academy said, announcing the winners of the 10 million crown ($1.29 million) prize.


Word of the Day
call-note
  • The call or cry of a bird or other animal to its mate or its young.
'Call-note' is newer than 'bird-call,' which originally referred to 'an instrument for imitating the note of birds' but now also refers to 'the song or cry of a bird.'
