Taming lightning bolts with laser beams

Taming lightning bolts with laser beams

Dec 6, 2015: A recent research has shown that lightning can be tamed with the use of lasers. At present, we can see lightning rods on tall buildings used for increasing the likelihood that the high voltage bolts will strike in one place. But now Canadian scientists have found a way to direct a lightning arc in the laboratory. They ...

Printing silicon on paper with lasers

Printing silicon on paper with lasers

October 16, 2015: In seeking to develop the next generation of micro-electronic transistors, researchers have long sought to find the next best thing to replace silicon. To this end, a wealth of recent research into fully flexible electronic circuitry has focused on various organic and metal-oxide ink materials, which often lack all the favorable electronic properties of silicon but offer ...

ASU researchers demonstrate the world’s first white lasers

ASU researchers demonstrate the world?s first white lasers

More luminous and energy efficient than LEDs, white lasers look to be the future in lighting and light-based wireless communication. While lasers were invented in 1960 and are commonly used in many applications, one characteristic of the technology has proven unattainable. No one has been able to create a laser that beams white light.
