LIG Nanowise, a Manchester, UK-based nanotechnology start up has announced the commercial release of a as super-resolution microsphere amplified lens (SMAL), which the developers say is a 'world first in microscopy'. The new lens allows scientists to carry out super resolution imaging down to 70nm using a standard white light microscope
The Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) is collaborating with three Scandinavian research groups to explore how lidar technology could be used to measure the wind conditions across the world’s longest proposed floating bridge
Researchers in Canada have demonstrated the first quantum key distribution transmissions from a ground transmitter to a quantum payload on a moving aircraft
Researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have developed a way of generating holograms using the microwave signals of a wi-fi transmitter, enabling them to produce three-dimensional images of surrounding environments
Researchers at the University of California, Irvine are testing a new imaging device for its ability to monitor, quantify – and hopefully one day predict – skin toxicity levels induced by radiation therapy.
Fraunhofer researchers have developed a technique to bend sheet glass into complex or unconventional shapes using laser beams
Amid growing concern about the discovery of cancer-causing chemicals in crisps and French fries, Lien Smeesters from the University of Brussels has developed a spatially-resolved spectroscopic sensor that can inspect peeled potatoes in the factory
Fitting photovoltaic panels to semi-trailers could save up to 1,900 litres of fuel per year, according to a Fraunhofer study assessing the economic feasibility of PV in commercial vehicles
For the first time, researchers have used optical resolution photoacoustic microscopy to observe the development of blood vessels in zebrafish embryos without using any labels or contrast agents
To meet the increasing popularity of using mobile phone apps to pay for purchases, researchers from the University of Oxford in the UK have developed a method for transmitting quantum keys at a high enough data rate to ensure data security while compensating for moving hands.
The handheld device, which the researchers say could be miniaturised for use in a mobile device, will help ensure consumers’ personal financial information is safe from cyber-attacks.
