SCHOTT introduces a new addition to the COLDVision family of products, it's MaVi-S, a Machine Vision Strobe light source used in industrial image processing.
In an experiment modeled on the classic “Young’s double slit experiment” and published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, researchers have powerfully reinforced the understanding that surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) move as waves and follow analogous rules.
Scientists have discovered something new about exotic particles called solitons.
Since the 1980s, scientists have known that solitons can carry an electrical charge when traveling through certain organic polymers. A n...
Engineers at the Johns Hopkins Urology Robotics Lab report the invention of a motor without metal or electricity that can safely power remote-controlled robotic medical devices used for cancer biopsies and therapies guided by magnetic resonance imaging.
Researchers and engineers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory have won six R&D 100 Awards, presented each year by R&D Magazine in recognition of the year's most significant technological innovations.
Researchers will announce some of the latest breakthroughs and innovations in optics-based communications at OFC/NFOEC 2006--the largest and most comprehensive international event for optical communications.
University of Arkansas researchers, in partnership with a local company will develop a probe for future planetary rovers that will help scientists study the history of the solar system by examining the properties of layers of material beneath the surface of the moon, Mars, comets and other planetary bodies.
In an effort to provide safer and more reliable components for aircraft, researchers have invented an optical on-off switch that can replace electrical wiring on airplanes with fiber optics for controlling elevators, rudders, and other flight-critical elements.
