UT Austin Engineers Build First Nonreciprocal Acoustic Cir...

AUSTIN, Texas — A team of researchers at The University of Texas at Austin’s Cockrell School of Engineering has built the first-ever circulator for sound. The team’s experiments successfully prove that the fundamental symmetry with which acoustic waves travel through air between two points in space (“if you can hear, you can also be heard”) can be broken […]

The tunable magnetic-field controlled behaviour of magneto...

    Researchers from the Faculty of Physics, Lomonosov Moscow State University, in collaboration with their colleagues from Minsk, Belarus, experimentally studied optical and magnetooptical effects in magnetoplasmonic crystals and demonstrated the tunable magnetic-field controlled behaviour of these crystals in a wide spectral range. Magnetoplasmonic crystals (MPC) attract much attention due to their unique and […]

Surface Plasmons Enable Tunable Color Filters

  SINGAPORE, Aug. 30, 2012 — Combining a thin, perforated gold film with a liquid crystal layer makes a tunable, efficient color filter, engineers at A*STAR, the Agency for Science, Technology and Research in Singapore, report.

ZnO photonic-crystal laser emits in the UV

Although low-threshold lasing in the IR has been realized in photonic-­crystal slabs made of III-V semiconductor materials, a UV photonic-crystal laser represents a special challengebecause of the different materials and the smaller feature sizes required for the crystal.
