Latest Ultrashort pulse Stories
Researchers at Purdue University and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have created a device small enough to fit on a computer chip that converts continuous laser light into numerous ultrashort pulses, a technology that might have applications in more advanced sensors, communications systems and laboratory instruments.
Boosting up microprocessors -the heart of modern computers- at the speed of light, reducing consumptions and costs, may now be a reality thanks to the development of a new high-performance chip, the results of which have been published in Nature Photonics.
An expedition through the fast-paced microscopic world of atoms reveals electrons that spin at enormous speeds and the gigantic forces that act on them.
Current advanced femtosecond laser systems offer myriad possibilities to modify materials, from implementing new optical functionality to improving existing materials properties.
Biopsies in the future may be painless and noninvasive, thanks to smart laser technology being developed at Michigan State University.
Scientists develop a method to film nanostructures.
University of California - San Diego electrical engineers developed ultra compact, low power pulse compressor on a silicon chip.
Like playing a game of scissors-paper-rock, a team of scientists has used laser light to control x-ray beams â€“ by first changing the material medium through which the x-rays pass.
