Latest Wavelength Stories
While sound typically travels far slower than light, engineers from the University of Minnesota have created sound that is loud enough so that slower sound waves can bend faster-moving light waves on a computer chip.
Dedicated connections across long-haul networks assure high-bandwidth, low-latency data transport for carriers, multi-location enterprises and cloud services VANCOUVER, Wash., Oct.
The universe is awash in terahertz (THz) waves, as harmless as they are abundant. But unlike other regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, THz has proven to be extremely difficult to manipulate in order to capture novel images of objects and materials with which these light waves interact.
Peacock feathers have a beautiful iridescence about them – a sheen that shifts colors depending on your perspective. But recreating this effect has been a nuisance for engineers trying to reproduce this unique color mechanism to make high-resolution, reflective color display screens.
Scientists have developed a new way to create electromagnetic Terahertz (THz) waves or T-rays - the technology behind full-body security scanners.
Researchers have shown how arrays of tiny "plasmonic nanoantennas" are able to precisely manipulate light in new ways that could make possible a range of optical innovations such as more powerful microscopes, telecommunications and computers.
You canâ€™t find evidence that you canâ€™t see. FoxFuryâ€™s new Rook ALS LED kit makes it easier to find forensic evidence and finally settles the debate over best wavelength(s).
Researchers at Columbia Engineering School have built optical nanostructures that enable them to engineer the index of refraction and fully control light dispersion.
UB researcher explains: 'It's as though I can hold the light in my hand.'
RALEIGH, N.C. and CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Feb. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Pavlov Media and Wavelength Corporation are pleased to announce that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement.
Electromagnetic Radiation -- Electromagnetic radiation is a combination of oscillating electric and magnetic fields propagating through space and carrying energy from one place to another. Light is a form of electromagnetic radiation. The theoretical study of electromagnetic radiation is called electrodynamics, a subfield of electromagnetism. When any wire (or other conducting object such as an antenna) conducts alternating current, electromagnetic radiation is propagated at the same...
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...
