    Researchers create a hyperbolic metasurface on which light propagates with completely reshaped wafefronts Light waves usually disperse in cirular or convex wavefronts form, like ripples on water surface created by a stone. But now researchers have found that it is possible to alter light's wavefronts and to give them a completely new shape. To observe the waves as they propagate along the metasurface, researcher created a surface based on boron nitride. The material was selected because it has the ability to manipulate infrared light on extremely small length scales and it requires an extremely precise structuring on the nanometer scale...
  • Scientists Create a New Form of Light by Linking Photons

    02/18/2018 1:01:40 PM PST · by BenLurkin · 28 replies
    In new experiments, however, the physicists coaxed individual photons to cozy up to each other and link, similar to the way individual atoms stick together in molecules. The photon dance happens in a lab at MIT where the physicists run table-top experiments with lasers. Cantu, his colleague Aditya Venkatramani, a Ph.D. candidate in atomic physics at Harvard University, and their collaborators start by creating a cloud of chilled rubidium atoms. Rubidium is an alkali metal so it typically looks like a silver-white solid. But vaporizing rubidium with a laser and keeping it ultracold creates a cloud the researchers contain in...

    They date back to the time of Thomas Edison. They’ve provided decades and decades of warm bright light to our homes and workplaces. And they’re about go bye-bye. Starting Jan. 1, 2018, the humble everyday incandescent light bulb will continue on its long and steady fade into our collective memory. Manufacturers will no longer make the traditional 100-watt bulb and stores will eventually sell out of current supplies. Consumers will have to choose from more efficient bulbs that use no more than 72 watts, including halogen incandescents, compact fluorescents and light-emitting diode, or LED, bulbs. This is not the first...
  • Light’s weird dual nature weathers trip to space and back

    10/29/2017 4:12:12 PM PDT · by ETL · 21 replies ^ | October 25, 2017 | Emily Conover
    'Delayed-choice' test, a first with spacefaring photons, affirms light can behave like a wave or a particle. Light is two-faced: Sometimes it behaves like a wave, sometimes like a particle. Now, scientists have shown that light’s shifty disposition persists even after trekking thousands of kilometers into space and back again, researchers report October 25 in Science Advances.Depending on how light is measured, it can either be particle-like, lighting up a camera pixel, for example, or wavelike, interfering with other waves like ripples on the surface of water. It’s one of the many oddities of quantum mechanics. Before light is measured,...

    The Church Must Be Light, That the World May See Msgr. Charles Pope • September 18, 2016 • In the Gospel today (Monday of the 25th Week of the Year) the Lord says,No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light (Lk 8:16).In other words, the Lord lit the light of the Church in order to give light to the world and to be seen. The world is in darkness; the moral darkness of these...

    It’s Time to Shine or It’ll Be Over Soon - A Meditation on Being Called the Light of the World Msgr. Charles Pope • June 8, 2016 • In the Gospel yesterday (Tuesday of the 10th week) the Lord describes what a Christian is and what He expects of us. He uses two different metaphors: salt and light. Yesterday’s post considered the metaphor of salt.Today let’s consider the metaphor of light. The Lord says,You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it...

    MAY 6 MORNIN Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. A just God and a Saviour. The Lord is well pleased for His righteousness' sake; He will magnify the law, and make it honourable. God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them. Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His Blood to declare His righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forebearance of God; to declare I say at this time His righteousness: that He might be Just...

  • Cosmic uncertainty: Is the speed of light really constant?

    New Scientist ^ | 03/01/2017 | Stuart Clark
    The speed of light in a vacuum is the ultimate cosmic speed limit. Just getting close to it causes problems: the weird distortions of Einstein’s relativity kick in, so time slows down, lengths go up, masses balloon and everything you thought was fixed changes. Only things that have no mass in the first place can reach light speed – photons of light being the classic example. Absolutely nothing can exceed this cosmic max.We have known about the special nature of light speed since an experiment by US physicists Albert Michelson and Edward Morley in the 1880s. They set two beams...
  • God Is LIGHT and in Him Is No Darkness...I John pt 2

    This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.(I John 1:5)As we noted earlier, John’s ministry is a ministry of restoration. The faith has been frayed, tangled and torn to the point where the believers whom John addressed were confused as to who knew God genuinely and who didn’t. What does it mean to “know him who is from the beginning”? To “be strong and have the Word of God abiding in you”? Most importantly, who is the God and Father of...

    9/19/16. Yesterday’s events and the saber rattling of the enemy about the future are meant to make us afraid, but the Lord says, "Do not fear." “And the Angel of God, who went before the camp of Israel, moved and went behind them; and the pillar of cloud went from before them and stood behind them. So it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel. Thus it was a cloud and darkness, and it gave light by night, so that the one did not come near the other all that night.” Exodus 14:19-20. The pillar...

    Breakthrough Starshot is one of the more exciting scientific ideas that has popped up in the past decade, with its promise to deliver hardware to the nearest star in time for many people currently alive to see it. While the idea would work on paper as an extrapolation of existing technology, there are a lot of details that need to be thoroughly checked out, because it’s possible that one of them could present a show-stopper. There’s a bit of good news there: Breakthrough Starshot is apparently funding the needed research to give its concept a thorough vetting. A recent posting...

    Ever since Democritus... argued that all of existence was made up of tiny indivisible atoms, scientists have been speculating as to the true nature of light. Whereas scientists ventured back and forth between the notion that light was a particle or a wave until the modern, the 20th century led to breakthroughs that showed that it behaves as both. These included the discovery of the electron, the development of quantum theory, and Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. However, there remains many fascinating and unanswered questions when it comes to light, many of which arise from its dual nature. For instance, how...

    As 2016 takes off, hope seems hard to find—the stock market diving, Shiites and Sunnis rattling sabers in the Middle East, North Korea announcing nuclear advances. By the headlines, you'd swear the world is falling apart! Challenged by my Christian speaker buddies to pick a word focus for 2016, I chose the word "light." Jesus loved light imagery. He claimed, "I am the light of the world." He challenged believers, "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on...

    With a sense of disgust, but of course not of surprise, Yours Truly reads all those paid bloggers, and paid journalists, who are now trying to minimise the gravity of what has happened two days ago. They all perfectly well know that their grand-grandmothers, and all their ancestors before them, would have been utterly horrified at such an exercise; but they consider themselves smarter than their grand-grandmothers, and are therefore not bothered (or else they are prostitutes; one of the two). I do not know whether the grand-grandmothers were smarter, though they very probably were; what I know is that...

    "Vatican, World Bank partner to launch Year of Mercy with St. Peter's 'climate change' light show" The Catholic Church, founded to shed the light of Christ on the world, has quite literally invited the world to shed its light on her. On December 8, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception as well as the opening of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, Pope Francis has allowed climate-change partisans and population-control advocates to project a light show onto the facade and cupola of Saint Peter's Basilica in Rome - the most important church in the Catholic world - so as to "inspire...
