Active droploids - self-propelling droplets

Physicists examined a special system of colloidal particles that they activated using laser light. The researchers discovered that self-propelling droplets, which they have named 'droploids', formed which contain the particles as an internal motor.

Tuning transparency and opacity

Making a dark human hair transparent, or even an opaque bar of silicon: this optical 'sorcery' is possible by manipulating the incident light. This new phenomenon is called 'mutual extinction and transparency'. Until now only existing in theory, photonics researchers demonstrated the effect with experiments.
