Atomic Cloud Observations go beyond Heisenberg limits

Researchers used laser light to link caesium atoms and a vibrating membrane. The research, the first of its kind, points to sensors capable of measuring movement with unseen precision beyond Heisenberg limits. A number of experiments – demonstrate that Heisenberg’s …

EUV Lithography tools shipping in 2018

ASML expects to ship 20 to 24 extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography tools next year as the industry continues edging closer to production deployment of the oft-delayed next-generation lithography technology. Peter Wennink, ASML’s president and CEO, told analysts following the company’s …

Controlling laser polarization without moving parts

A research team led by UCLA electrical engineers has developed a new technique to control the polarization state of a laser that could lead to a new class of powerful, high-quality lasers for use in medical imaging, chemical sensing and …
