‘Groovy’ hologram creates strange state of light at visible and invisible wavelengths

Applied physicists at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have demonstrated that they can change the intensity, phase, and polarization of light rays using a hologram-like design decorated with nanoscale structures. As a proof of principle, the researchers have used it to create an unusual state of light called a radially polarized beam, which—because it…

BioInspired SuperGlass

New coating creates ‘superglass’ “A new transparent, bioinspired coating makes ordinary glass tough, self-cleaning, and incredibly slippery, a team from Harvard University reported online July 31 in Nature Communications.”The recent development in super-hydrophobic coatings and this bio-inspired coatings are really transforming our expectations of the maintenance cycles of materials. The new coating builds a Slippery Liquid-Infused…
