New Technique for Creating Nanostructured, Full-Color, Flexible, Thin-Film Reflective Display

Imagine a soldier who can change the color and pattern of his camouflage uniform from woodland green to desert tan at will. Or an office worker who could do the same with his necktie. Is someone at the wedding reception wearing the same dress as you? No problem - switch yours to a different color in the blink of an eye. [More]
Tailored Light Can Help Analyze Individual Nanostructures

Tailored Light Can Help Analyze Individual Nanostructures

By adapting a mode of the light field to a system under study, the interaction of light with matter can be optimized. In this context, the spatial distribution of the electric field of such a tailored mode plays an important role. [More]

Atomic Resolution Secondary Electron Images Help Determine Atomic Arrangement on Surfaces

A multi-institutional team of scientists has taken an important step in understanding where atoms are located on the surfaces of rough materials, information that could be very useful in diverse commercial applications, such as developing green energy and understanding how materials rust. [More]
Researchers Realize Long-Standing Theoretical Prediction in Nonlinear Optical Metamaterials

Researchers Realize Long-Standing Theoretical Prediction in Nonlinear Optical Metamaterials

A research team has realized one of the long-standing theoretical predictions in nonlinear optical metamaterials: creation of a nonlinear material that has opposite refractive indices at the fundamental and harmonic frequencies of light. Such a material, which doesn’t exist naturally, had been predicted for nearly a decade. [More]
