Zygo Launches Verifire HD Interferometer

The new phase-shifting metrology instrument performs advanced characterization of precision optical surfaces

A gentle quantum touch with high precision

Measuring the phase of light is the basis of many measurement devices which measure for instance the length of an object, the

Researchers developing next generation of high power lasers

The research group at the Glasgow-based University are leading efforts to take advantage of plasma, the ubiquitous medium that makes up most of the universe, to make the significant scientific breakthrough

MILKY WAY-LIKE GALAXIES MAY HAVE EXISTED IN THE EARLY UNIVERSE

A new, large-scale computer simulation has shown for the first time that large disk galaxies, much like our own Milky Way, may have existed in the early days of the universe

Detection of gamma rays from a newly discovered dwarf galaxy may point to dark matter

Scientists have detected for the first time gamma rays emanating from a dwarf galaxy. Such a detection may be the signal of dark matter particles annihilating, a long-sought prediction of many dark matter theories

‘Kathryn’s wheel’ collision lights up galaxy

A spectacular collision between galaxies has been spotted near the Milky Way. Two small star systems are slamming into each other, producing a colourful firework display

Astronomers witness assembly of galaxies in the early Universe for the first time

An international team of astronomers led by the University of Cambridge have detected the most distant clouds of star-forming gas yet found in normal galaxies in the early Universe

Astronomers find 'teeny supermassive black hole'

The findings illuminate for astronomers important similarities between galaxies of vastly different scales. And because the dwarf galaxy, called RGG 118, is so small, it's unlikely that it has ever merged with other galaxies, so it gives researchers a window to

Failed stars host powerful aurora displays

The so-called failed stars, which are difficult to detect and also remain hard to classify, are too massive to be planets but physicists from the Universities of Sheffield and Oxford have revealed that they host powerful

Hexagon Metrology releases SENMATiQ intelligent sensor automation

SENMATiQ is based around on a universal sensor switch and intelligent sensor module, enabling it to accept all common sensor types including analogue scanning sensors, optical and vision sensors. The interface system also means additional sensors can be easily integrated, offering an

Revealing the hidden meaning in mass spectrometry images

Following on from previous work on the measurement and description of the matrix effect, NPL led a Versailles Project on Advanced Materials and Standards inter-laboratory study. Two batches of samples with known compositions were produced at NPL and

LeddarTech introduces LeddarCore sensor ICs for high-volume applications

LeddarCore is intended to give integrators and OEMs the flexibility to develop fully optimized sensor solutions or systems perfectly adapted to their specific applications. Combining LeddarCore with a photodetector, a pulsed light source and optical elements will allow innovators to develop new

Drexel Engineers' Recipe For 'Sandwiching' Atomic Layers Expands Possibilities For Making Materials That Store Energy

The scientists whose job it is to test the limits of what nature—specifically chemistry— will allow to exist, just set up shop on some new real estate on the Periodic Table. Using a method they invented for joining disparate elemental layers into a stable material with

Caltech Announces Discovery in Fundamental Physics

To this end, Caltech's Thomas F. Rosenbaum and colleagues at the University of Chicago and the Argonne National Laboratory recently used a synchrotron X-ray source to investigate the existence of instabilities in the arrangement of the electrons in metals as a function of both temperature and pressure, and to pinpoint, for the first time

Small tilt in magnets makes them viable memory chips

UC Berkeley researchers have discovered a new way to switch the polarization of nanomagnets, paving the way for high-density storage to move from hard disks onto integrated circuits.

Spintronics: Molecules Stabilizing Magnetism

In the present study, three molecular layers of the dye phtalocynine were applied to the surface of ferromagnetic cobalt. Whereas the magnetic moments of the
