Light-driven Atomic Rotations Excite Magnetic Waves

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates...
magnetism

Mapping Buried Magnetism

Magnetic properties of materials underlie technologies from old-fashioned recording tape to modern hard drives, and scientists are constantly pushing to develop new uses from...

Measuring electrons: first attosecond pulse

By creating and using the first optical attosecond pulse, scientists from the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics measured the time it takes electrons inside atoms to respond to the electromagnetic forces of light.

A tiny ring that produces light pulses

Researchers led by EPFL have made a tiny, ring-shaped device that can generate a pulsed laser signal. Their work could be used in telecommunications...

Detecting arthritis with light

Joint inflammation (arthritis) is a common problem in medical practice and can be due to a variety of causes. Many types of inflammatory disorders...

Stanford engineers create artificial skin that can send pressure sensation to...

Stanford chemical engineering Professor Zhenan Bao and her team have created a skin-like material that can tell the difference between a soft touch and...

LED Pulser developed by Sandia delivers laser-like performance at fraction of...

When Sandia National Laboratories electronics engineer Chris Carlen got enthusiastic about flashlights containing high-power light-emitting devices (LEDs), he didn’t expect his hobby to lead...

Permanent Data Storage with Light

The first all-optical permanent on-chip memory has been developed by scientists of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the universities of Münster, Oxford, and...

Laser-based molecular fingerprinting

A team of researchers based at LMU and the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics has developed an infrared laser that can be used...
