April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Peacock feathers have a beautiful iridescence about them — a sheen that shifts colors depending on your perspective. Nature created this color shifting with relative ease, it seems, but it has been a nuisance for engineers trying to reproduce this unique color mechanism to make high-resolution, reflective color display screens. A new study from the University of Michigan reveals researchers have found a way to lock in so-called...

Researchers at Northwestern University have created a new kind of cloaking material that can render objects invisible in the terahertz range. Though this design can't translate into an invisibility cloak for the visible spectrum, it could have implications in diagnostics, security, and communication. The cloak, designed by Cheng Sun, assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Northwestern's McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science, uses microfabricated gradient-index...

Coherent Inc., a world leader in laser technology with headquarters in the USA, and the PTB have joined their expertise in Terahertz technology Terahertz radiation still lies in a metrological no man's land "“ a metrology gap. The Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) can now close this gap. For the first time, a commercial Terahertz laser was traced back to the international system of units (SI) by measuring its output power absolutely. PTB achieved this success with a power...
