How to reduce shockwaves in quantum beam experiments

While skimmers have been a necessary component in atomic and molecular-beam experiments for decades, they were also known to impose a fundamental limit on the number of particles one could pack into the beam. Scientists have now revealed a simple way to overcome this limit.

Sensing the nanoscale with visible light

A general rule in optics is that light is insensitive to features which are much smaller than the optical wavelength. However, a new experiment shows that even features that are more than 100 times smaller than the wavelength can still be sensed by light.
