What happens when you expose tellurite glass to femtosecond laser light? That’s the question that Gözden Torun at the Galatea Lab, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, in a collaboration with Tokyo Tech scientists, aimed to answer in her thesis work when she made the discovery. Its a discovery that may one day turn windows into […]

Quantum dots are particles of semiconductor material that can absorb and emit light efficiently.  For many looking into the future these really tiny dots of material offer great promise. University of Toronto (UT) researchers examining the photosynthetic apparatus in plants have been inspired to devise and engineer a new generation of nanomaterials that control and […]
