A light wave oscillates perpendicular to its propagation direction – that is what students learn in school. However, scientists of the Vienna University of Technology (TU Vienna) now perform atom-physics experiments with light oscillating in the longitudinal direction.

WAVES University is pioneering in their efforts to combat the decline of workplace readiness and common sense exhibited in today’s youth by creating a unique online interactive employee training
University of Zurich Waves do not spread in a disordered medium if there is less than one wavelength between two defects. Physicists from the universities of Zurich and Constance have now proved Nobel Prize winner Philip W. Anderson´s theory directly for the first time using the diffusion of light in a cloudy medium. Light cannot spread in a straight line in a cloudy medium like milk because the many droplets of fat divert the light as defects. If the disorder — the...
A recent discovery has transformed the field of plasma physics, even opening up a new interdisciplinary research field that works in the overlap of condensed matter physics and astrophysics.
Ocean waves are a source of calming for meditation, and a source of enjoyment for thrill-seeking surfers. But these waves are also a source of wonder for researchers trying to explain the power of the tsunami.
Doppler Effect -- The Doppler effect is the apparent change in frequency or wavelength of a wave that is perceived by an observer moving relative to the source of the waves. For waves, such as sound waves, that propagate in a wave medium, the velocity of the observer and the source are reckoned relative to the medium in which the waves are transmitted. The total Doppler effect may therefore result from both motion of the source and motion of the observer. Each of these effects is analyzed...
