cheng-nanolaserPurdue laser innovations unleash precision, potential in laser-material interactions

Industrial manufacturers and academic researchers can use patented, innovative laser techniques developed at Purdue University to produce high-tech materials such as semiconductor oxide thin films and metals with high performance under extreme conditions and conduct ultrafine-scale manipulation of physical properties in nanomaterials.

Understanding the gravity of the situation: ALPHA scientists prove that antimatter falls at the same rate as matter

Early on in science classes all over the world, students drop diverse things to learn how gravity works and how outside forces might affect the rate of fall. But the science of falling goes well beyond the bowling ball and feather experiment. Einstein’s theory of relativity is still being studied, applied and proven in a multitude of ways today. For instance, the Antihydrogen Laser Physics Apparatus (ALPHA) project, based at CERN, published in Nature on Wednesday (Sept. 27) about the science of antimatter with the goal of discovering if gravity affects matter and antimatter in the same way. Spoiler alert: It does!
