MASER

Did you know that the LASER had an older cousin that amplified microwaves instead of light. New research has breathed new life into use this old technology and may someday be as useful as LASERs are today.

Blinding

A team of laser scientists have built a huge petawatt laser – the most powerful of its type in the world. This will now be used to accelerate particles like electrons – again something which has never been achieved.

Spark Plug RIP

A team of Japanese researchers has come up with a ceramic lasers that can be triggered every nanosecond for powerful blasts, which hold their intensity over very short ranges. They are just 9 mm in diameters. They might find use in the unlikeliest of places – the engine of a car, sounding the death knell for spark plugs and twitchy car engines.

Laser Speckle

Researchers at ARC Center of Excellence for Quantum Atom Optics, Research School of Physics, ANU, have successfully guided supercooled Helium atoms through an optical guide made of a laser beam. This is the first ever successful at guiding matter waves.

Doppler Effect

One of the coolest things in physics is used as a common tool to make things really cold. Lasers are used to cool a bunch of atoms to extremely low temperatures, temperatures in the micro-Kelvin range. Extremely successful, laser cooling is surely one of the hottest topics in Physics.
