Sensing the nanoscale with visible light, and the fundamentals of disordered waves



New York NY (SPX) Jun 08, 2017
We cannot see atoms with the naked eye because they are so small relative to the wavelength of light. This is an instance of a general rule in optics - light is insensitive to features which are much smaller than the optical wavelength. However, a new experiment appearing in Science shows that features that are even 100 times smaller than the wavelength can still be sensed by light. Hanan Sheinfux and Dr. Yaakov Lumer, from the group of Prof. Moti Segev at the Technion -Technical Institute of Isra ... read more

New NELIOTA project detects flashes from lunar impacts
Paris (ESA) Jun 12, 2017
Using a system developed under an ESA contract, the Greek NELIOTA project has begun to detect flashes of light caused by small pieces of rock striking the Moon's surface. NELIOTA is the first system that can determine the temperature of these impact flashes. Studies such as NELIOTA are important because Earth and its Moon are constantly bombarded by natural space debris. Most of this mater ... more

Astronomers have used the sharp vision of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to repeat a century-old test of Einstein's general theory of relativity. The Hubble team measured the mass of a white dwarf, the burned-out remnant of a normal star, by seeing how much it deflects the light from a background star. This observation represents the first time Hubble has witnessed this type of effect creat ... more
