A new microwave antenna can make magnetometers super-sensitive.

Researchers from ITMO University and Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences are working on a microwave antenna that would lead to a creation of super-sensitive magnetic field detectors. Aside from having high sensitivity, these devices should operate at low input and at room temperature, and also be compact and cheap. The main … Continue reading A new microwave antenna can make magnetometers super-sensitive.

Super cheap, super compact, super accurate: russian physicists have upgraded a usual diode laser to an ultra-precise instrument.

A group of researchers from the Russian Quantum Center (RQC), the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU), and Samsung R&D Institute Russia have developed a method for drastically narrowing the emission spectrum of an ordinary diode laser, like that in a laser pointer. This makes their device a useful … Continue reading Super cheap, super compact, super accurate: russian physicists have upgraded a usual diode laser to an ultra-precise instrument.
