A new generation of ultrafast fiber lasers being developed in Europe is creating more uses for the beams of high-intensity light, while lowering production and maintenance costs and increasing efficiency.
A research team led by Prof. PAN Jianwei with the University of Science and Technology of China, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, has been successful in performing Shor's algorithm, a quantum algorithm for factorization, on an optical quantum computer.
For dry machining, high hardness and high oxidation-resistance are both important. That's why superhard nanocomposites, which represent a new, advanced generation of wear protective coatings boosting such advantages as high hardness and high oxidation, are important to dry machining.
Nanomedicine pioneer Mauro Ferrari, Ph.D., and colleagues at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston have developed a new way to get intravenous agents for cancer and other diseases to the parts of the body where they‚??re needed most and to reduce the amount that goes to others areas where unintended injury can occur.
