Mechanism of air lasing

University of Tokyo researchers have discovered the mechanism of air lasing. Irradiating air with a short laser pulse ionizes nitrogen molecules and fulfills the conditions required for laser amplification

Signals from empty space

An experimental setup to measure electric fields with extremely high temporal resolution and sensitivity has now made it possible to directly detect vacuum fluctuations, despite all contrary assumptions. World-leading optical technologies and ultrashort pulsed laser systems of

Scientists produce status check on quantum teleportation

In a paper published in Nature Photonics, the team, which included scientists from the Freie Universität Berlin and the Universities of Tokyo and Toronto, reviewed the theoretical ideas around quantum teleportation focusing on the main experimental approaches and their


NASA Telescopes Find Galaxy Cluster with Vibrant Heart

Astronomers have discovered a rare beast of a galaxy cluster whose heart is bursting with new stars. The unexpected find, made with the help of NASA's Spitzer and Hubble space telescopes, suggests that behemoth galaxies at the cores of these


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 Discover ‘Young Jupiter’ Exoplanet

The finding could serve as a decoder ring for astronomers to understand how planets formed around our sun because one of the best ways to learn how our solar system evolved is to look to younger star systems in the earlier phase of development

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

Imaging & Machine Vision

4K Camera from XIMEA offers 12Mp at 133fps over 300m cable

The newly available model’s data and control interface is fully compliant with PCI Express External Cabling Specification and provides bandwidth of

High-Performance Frame Grabbers for Users and Developers

VRmagic’s AVC-2 is a range of high-performance frame gabbers that can be used in many different ways for the implementation of machine vision applications. The converted digital signals are transmitted in real time via

Acoustic imaging with outline detection

Scientists at ETH Zurich have developed a new method to differentiate very weak and short sound waves from longer ones. When used in acoustic imaging, their technology makes it possible to detect only the outline of objects.

Closing the Loop with Optogenetics

Optogenetics provides a powerful tool for studying the brain by allowing researchers to activate neurons using simple light-based signals. But until now, these optical stimulation techniques have been

High-resolution 'laser x-rays' could spot tiny fractures in bone

A new method of taking highly detailed x-ray images of bone using powerful laser beams has been developed by researchers at Imperial College London

Editing the genome with light

A research group at the University of Tokyo has developed a new technology to optically control genome editing
