The frequency comb to find ‘Earth-like’ planets

Hunting for ‘Earth-like’ planets outside of our solar system is becoming ever-more feasible with the investment and developments in frequency comb lasers. The new developments allow for greater precision and more sensitive techniques especially for astronomers investigating stars in other solar systems and the planets orbiting them. Frequency combs work by firing ultra-short pulses (a […]

Möbius Strip: The Light Way

A Möbius strip is a 3-Dimensional structure which has one side. It is easy to create a Möbius strip using a piece of paper, however, they are not easy to find naturally. Recently, a team of researchers have demonstrated experimentally that you can produce a Möbius strip made of polarisation states of light. This was […]

Brain-like computing

Computers could soon function like a human brain. New research published in Advanced Optical Materials shows the possibility of optical computers with the ability to learn. The Photonics Institute (TPI) reproduced neural networks and synapses like those in the brain, using light-sensitive glass fibres. The team simulated neural resting state before mimicking the nerve firing […]

The Chameleon-like material sensation

Scientists at UC Berkeley have created a Chameleon-like material that can change colour when stretched. The super thin silicon, is marked with patterns of ridges to reflect light in a certain way. As the material is stretched the ridges stretch and reflect a different wavelength of light thus reflect a different colour in the process. […]

3-D X-ray images ‘Giant Virus’

The new developments of a unique X-ray laser has enabled the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory to image an infectious virus intact. Mimivirus, the name of the ‘giant virus’ was imaged and with the ability to reconstruct 3-D structures of live samples, scientists can learn more about the virus’ origins. The experiment involves […]
