Researchers can boost the properties of electronics by shooting them with laser

Researchers at Northeastern have taken the first step in developing the next generation of electronics. They are developing a new way to change the...
Illustration depicting how specific frequencies, or colors, of light (sharp peaks) emerge from the electronic background noise (blue) in NIST’s ultrafast electro-optic laser. The vertical backdrop shows how these colors combine to create an optical frequency comb, or “ruler” for light. Credit: D. Carlson/NIST

New electro-optic laser pulses 100 times faster than usual ultrafast light

Using common electronics, NIST scientists have developed a laser that pulses 100 times more often than conventional ultrafast lasers. This newly developed laser is expected...
Taking a picture of single molecules, using sound

Better imaging using sound

Scientists at the TU Wein have developed a technique for extremely promising microscopy. The technique called Nanomechanical scanning absorption microscopy to visualize individual molecules and even reliably...
Illustration of the silicon Brillouin laser in operation. The laser is formed from nanoscale silicon structures that confine both light and sound waves.

New silicon laser makes silicon ‘sing’

In recent years, there has been increasing interest in translating optical technologies at speed into tiny optical or “photonic” integrated circuit using light. This...
The world's first continuous room-temperature solid-state mase

World’s first continuous room-temperature solid-state maser

Masers (microwave amplification by stimulated emission of radiation), the more established, microwave recurrence kin of the laser, was concocted in 1954. However not at...
