Researchers Capture First Ever Image Of Light As Wave And Particle

 

 

 

 

” Quantum mechanics tells us that light can behave simultaneously as a particle or a wave. However, there has never been an experiment able to capture both natures of light at the same time; the closest we have come is seeing either wave or particle, but always at different times. Taking a radically different experimental approach, EPFL scientists have now been able to take the first ever snapshot of light behaving both as a wave and as a particle. The breakthrough work is published in Nature Communications.”

” When UV light hits a metal surface, it causes an emission of electrons. Albert Einstein explained this “photoelectric” effect by proposing that light – thought to only be a wave – is also a stream of particles. Even though a variety of experiments have successfully observed both the particle- and wave-like behaviors of light, they have never been able to observe both at the same time.

  A research team led by Fabrizio Carbone at EPFL has now carried out an experiment with a clever twist: using electrons to image light. The researchers have captured, for the first time ever, a single snapshot of light behaving simultaneously as both a wave and a stream of particles particle.”

Pentagon Invisibility Cloak for American Solders The Photos Will Blow Your Mind!

 

 

 ” The Pentagon is betting big on a real life invisibility cloak for American solders, according to recent reports.

Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp, a Canadian company known for its innovative camo technology, is attempting to revolutionize the battlefield by providing true invisibility for soldiers. The special material being used is know as Quantum Stealth. The pictures posted on the company’s website of the fabric, which apparently bends light to create the effect, look as though they are straight out of a Harry Potter movie:

Technology has come a long way since the 1969 moon landing, providing us with longer space missions and more advanced systems. While the Apollo 11 mission only lasted a total of eight days, now we have expeditions to the International Space Station lasting as long as seven months, and a planned 2 1/2 year expedition to Mars. One of the most exciting advancements, however, is the ability for us Earth-bound folks to communicate with astronauts and see the gorgeous sights of outer space.”
