... mixing are still uncertain. A new technique using tabletop
equipment has put some of the best direct bounds on how neutrinos mix for certain energy ranges. This paper describes how a radioactive potassium atom is trapped with magnets and lasers to watch it decay. By carefully analyzing the paths of the decay...
Lasers create new possibilities for biological technology
...aken another step in the quest to build a compact, tabletop
x-ray microscope that could be used for biological imaging at super-high resolution. By firing a femtosecond laser - a laser that generates light pulses with durations as short as 100 trillionth of a second - through a gas-filled tube called a waveg...
