Prostate cancer is the most common cancer for men and, for men in the United States, it's the second leading cause of death.
With fibers roughly the width of a human hair, researchers created a 3D imaging system that holds many potential applications, they say, ranging from remote inspection of small or dangerous machines?to a miniaturized and minimally invasive endoscopic tool.
The quest to deliver ultra-fast and energy efficient magnetic recording could be a step closer to fruition, due to pioneering new research on all-optical switching of magnetization.
Optical parametric oscillators have been widely applied in areas ranging from spectroscopy photonics to quantum information.
In the ongoing race to develop ever-better materials and configurations for solar cells, there are many variables that can be adjusted to try to improve performance, including material type, thickness, and geometric arrangement.
Miniaturized endoscopes with micron resolution, sub-millimeter diameters and 3D imaging capabilities play an important role in medical imaging and diagnostics.
In a new paper published in eLight today, a team of scientists, led by Dr. Moritz Kreysing from MPI-CBG, Dresden, Germany, has developed an entirely new approach to trapping micron-sized particles.
The first-ever detachable head-mounted photoacoustic microscope for imaging brain activity in freely moving mice has been developed by scientists. The device has an option to be removed once imaging is over, thus enabling long-term studies that can disclose crucial insights into neurodegenerative diseases and other neurological disorders.
Imagine windows that can easily transform into mirrors, or super high-speed computers that run not on electrons but light.
A new concept has been developed that has the potential to assist new instruments in the investigation of fundamental science topics such as gravitational waves and dark matter.
The EU-funded LAMpAS project has announced that the target parameters of its kilowatt-class ultrafast laser have been reached.
Liquid crystals are not solid, but some of their physical properties are directional - like in a crystal. This is because their molecules can arrange themselves into certain patterns. The best-known applications include flat screens and digital displays.
Photons are the basis for many next-generation quantum technologies, including ultra-secure quantum communications and potentially game-changing quantum computers.
Skoltech researchers and their colleagues have come one step closer to a working optoacoustic endoscopic probe -; a device that could slip inside a blood vessel and analyze atherosclerotic plaques by shining laser light on them to make them wobble like a loudspeaker membrane and betray their chemical composition with an?ultrasound signature.
Femtosecond laser precision engineering has been applied in industries for device micro/nano-fabrication due to its unique advantages of being a dry and noncontact process, coupled with the availability of reliable light sources and affordable system cost.
