Caltech engineers create an optical gyroscope smaller than a grain of rice.

Caltech engineers led by Ali Hajmiri, Professor of Electrical Engineering came up with a new technology named "reciprocal sensitivity enhancement" and created an optical gyroscope that is 500 smaller than the current devices, but 30 times more accurate. These days gyroscopes are crucially necessary devices used as navigation tools in different kinds of technologies. Optical … Continue reading Caltech engineers create an optical gyroscope smaller than a grain of rice.
