New laser technology may reduce accidents on icy roads

LONDON: Researchers have come up with an innovative laser technology that uses Raman spectroscopy which may help avoid road accidents on icy roads during winters. They have detected a problematic substance known as ‘hydrohalite’, which forms on icy roads. Hydrohalite is normally left unremoved, as it does not respond to the conventional de-icing method of road surface salting. Once formed, repeated salting will not remove it, according … Continue reading New laser technology may reduce accidents on icy roads

Scientists use lasers to put a shine on metals

Washington: Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, Germany, have developed a way of automating the polishing work on metals, by using lasers. Polishing injection moulds is a time-consuming and monotonous, requiring highest levels of concentration, because any blemish in the mould can render it useless. A skilled worker may often need a whole week to polish a single metal mould. … Continue reading Scientists use lasers to put a shine on metals

Revolutionary new laser technology can print Mona Lisa on a hair

Washington: What if you could print this article on a hair? A nanotechnology breakthrough has revolutionised laser printing technology. This tech from DTU allows you to print high-resolution data and colour images of unprecedented quality and microscopic dimensions. Using this new technology, the researchers reproduced a colour image of Mona Lisa, which is less than one pixel on an iPhone Retina display. The laser technology … Continue reading Revolutionary new laser technology can print Mona Lisa on a hair

First ‘Water-Wave Laser’ Created

JERUSALEM:  Scientists have created the first ‘water-wave laser’ that emits a beam through the interaction of light and water waves, and may be used in ‘lab-on-a-chip’ devices to study cell biology and test new drug therapies. The laser could someday be used in tiny sensors that combine light waves, sound and water waves. For now, the water-wave laser offers a “playground” for scientists studying the interaction … Continue reading First ‘Water-Wave Laser’ Created

NASA working on laser technology that could send humans to Mars in 3 days!

New York: Space exploration has come a long way, but one thing that is still holding humans back from interstellar travel is the speed of the spacecraft. With the current available technology, it will approximately take humans five months to touch down on the Martian surface. But, NASA scientists are currently working on a new laser technology that can take humans to Mars in flat … Continue reading NASA working on laser technology that could send humans to Mars in 3 days!

Record laser on chip created

Working in collaboration with the Lionix company, researchers from the University of Twente’s MESA+ research institute have developed the world’s most narrowband diode laser on a chip. This laser represents a breakthrough in the fast-growing field of photonics, and will bring applications like 5G internet and accurate GPS closer. Research leader Professor Klaus Boller presented the research results during a scientific conference in Munich. We … Continue reading Record laser on chip created

Shortest laser pulse created……

The world’s fastest, shortest laser pulse was created by researchers in Zurich, Switzerland. This scientific advance will enable us to study all movements of atoms and and molecules on their basic time scale. Molecules rotate in the range of picoseconds, atoms vibrate in femtoseconds and their electrons move in the range of attoseconds. In order to fully understand the dynamics during a chemical reaction, scientists … Continue reading Shortest laser pulse created……

New laser technology can make objects invisible

London: Scientists have developed a cloaking technology that can make opaque materials invisible by using light waves from lasers, paving the way for novel ways of camouflaging objects. A completely opaque material is irradiated from above with a specific wave pattern – with the effect that light waves from the left can pass through the material without any obstruction. The technique can be applied to … Continue reading New laser technology can make objects invisible
