Lasers Advance Microscope Capabilities, Study

Scientists at Australian National University have discovered at technique that makes atomic-force microscope probes 20 times more sensitive and adept at identifying forces as tiny as the weight of an individual virus. The technique employs laser beams to cool a nanowire probe to minus 265 degrees Celsius. Read More »

Researchers Find a way to Record Quantum Behavior of Electrons

Researchers Find a way to Record Quantum Behavior of Electrons

A team of scientists at the University of Chicago has recently developed a new technique allowing them to record the quantum mechanical behavior or a diamond’s individual electron within a nanonscale defect. Their technique uses ultrafast pulses of laser light both to control the defect’s entire quantum state and observe how that single electron state changes over time. The work ... Read More »

Researchers report analysis of ‘precious’ space particles

Researchers report analysis of 'precious' space particles

Seven rare, microscopic interstellar dust particles that date to the beginnings of the solar system are among the samples collected by scientists who have been studying the payload from NASA’s Stardust spacecraft since its return to Earth in 2006. If confirmed, these particles would be the first samples of contemporary interstellar dust. Read More »
