Since there is always a need for a majority of the batteries to be recharged, scientists are finding ways to make use of ambient lighting as a possible source for producing small amounts of power for indoor devices.
Generating mechanical motion in crystals using light or heat has increasingly become the focus of materials scientists.
Smiths Detection today announced with New Zealand Aviation Security Service that it has completed deployment of 18 units of its new Ultraviolet light tray disinfection kit to help enhance public health and safety at airports across the country.
Detecting pesticides and hydrocarbons in water in real-time could be achieved by shining a light beam into potentially contaminated water samples.
At night, prolonged exposure to light could have negative impacts on human health. However, Japanese scientists have currently found a new kind of light with very few consequences for physiological variations during sleep.
Narita International Airport is Japan’s busiest airport and the first to acquire the Airport Health Accreditation (AHA) implemented by Airports Council International.
Light--and all waves--can bend around the corners of obstacles found along its path. Because of this phenomenon, called diffraction, it is impossible to focus light onto a spot that is smaller than half its wavelength.
Researchers from The Australian National University have developed new technology that allows people to see clearly in the dark, revolutionising night-vision.
Scientists have developed a new method to dynamically change the liquid metal surface between reflecting and scattering states.
For the successful implementation of image processing applications, it is not only important to choose the right camera and a suitable image sensor.
