Nanotip Delivers Loss to Microresonators to Reap Energy Gains

Energy loss in optical systems, such as lasers, is a chief hindrance to their performance and efficiency, and it occurs on an ongoing, frustrating basis. [More]

Researchers Improve Understanding of RIXS Spectra from Complex Liquid Alcohols

For scientists probing the electronic structure of materials using a relatively new technique called resonant inelastic soft X-ray scattering (RIXS) in the last few years, a persistent question has been how to account for "split peak" spectra seen in some hydrogen-bonded materials. [More]

UCI Receives NSF Grant to Further Develop Nano-Optical Sensor for Detecting Infection in Breath

Imagine a low-cost, disposable breath analysis device that a person with cystic fibrosis could use at home along with a smartphone to immediately detect a lung infection, much like the device police use to gauge a driver's blood alcohol level. [More]
Microscopy Becomes Nanoscopy

Microscopy Becomes Nanoscopy

The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) would like to congratulate Eric Betzig, Stefan W Hell and William E Moerner for their award of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2014. NPL scientists are building upon their pioneering work, which has resulted in 'microscopy becoming nanoscopy'. [More]
NSF Grant to Support Research on How Proteins Form Groups Within Cells

NSF Grant to Support Research on How Proteins Form Groups Within Cells

A $470,350 award from the National Science Foundation will support research at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) to gain a better understanding of how proteins form groups or clusters within cells in the living body. Abnormal protein grouping is known to be associated with cancer and with heart arrhythmias, but scant knowledge exists about how proteins group. [More]

Nanocamera Inventor Develops Camera That Can See Around Corners

All through his childhood, Ramesh Raskar wished fervently for eyes in the back of his head. “I had the notion that the world did not exist if I wasn’t looking at it, so I would constantly turn around to see if it was there behind me.” Although this head-spinning habit faded during his teen years, Raskar never lost the desire to possess the widest possible field of vision.
