Advancements in Microscope Calibration could Provide a Better Look at Viruses

Microscopes reveal many things in the world of science, such as organisms and cells, giving us an up close and personal look at tiny lifeforms. Using new techniques, the accuracy of microscopes could be enhanced to view the cell makeup of a sneeze by studying the volume of micro droplets. This is done by methodically tinkering…

2012 Psychophysics Study Using Optical Slits

               Over the years, science has given us many ways of studying and exploring vast possibilities. One of those miraculous ways is psychophysics, which is defined as the part of psychology the deals with mental phenomena and physical stimulation. Psychophysics works by studying the specifics of physical stimulation and…

Nobel Physics Prizes and 2nd International Light Seminar

Earlier this month, on October 4, we had Dr John C Mather speak at our 2nd International Light Seminar. He received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2006 for his part in the COBE mission regarding the Big Bang theory and the expansion of the universe. On that very day, the Nobel Prize in Physics…

The Archimedes Palimpsest and Lenox Laser

Lenox Laser, as mentioned in the previous post, is involved and relevant to current events such as the recent Nobel Prize in Physics and the James Webb Telescope. Another example is the Archimedes Palimpsest at Baltimore’s Walters Art Museum. It is on a special exhibit right now until January 2012, and, believes it or not,…

Use of SiC in a High Power Spatial Filter for Stray Light Reduction

Thomson scattering measurement of the electron temperature and density profiles in high temperature plasmas is a well established experimental technique. The existence of high levels of laser-line radiation (“stray laser light”) in the detected scattered light signal can lead to difficulty in system calibration. Spatial filtering is a standard technique for improving the spatial profile…

Ruling Out Multi-Order Interference in Quantum Mechanics / Mfgr By Lenox Laser

Read this article at Science Magazine Abstract: Ruling Out Multi-Order Interference in Quantum Mechanics Urbasi Sinha,1,* Christophe Couteau,1,2 Thomas Jennewein,1 Raymond Laflamme,1,3 Gregor Weihs1,4,* Quantum mechanics and gravitation are two pillars of modern physics. Despite their success in describing the physical world around us, they seem to be incompatible theories. There are suggestions that one…

High Energy Aperture Holder (MT-1, MT-1R)

Spatial filtering of a high energy laser beam is not a trivial problem when the energy density of the focused beam approaches the ablation threshold of the optical aperture material.Materials with a high ablation threshold have very low thermal conductivity; thus, depending upon the repetition rate of laser pulses, can become subject to melting proceeded…
