How to trick light into flexing its muscles

By Mia Halleröd Palmgren. Published on 18 December 2017 in:
News, , ,

Light consists of a flow of photons. If two waveguides – cables for light – lie side by side, they attract or repel each other. The interaction is due to the optical force, but the effect is usually extremely small. Physicists at Chalmers University of Technology and Free University of Brussels have now found a method to significantly enhance the optical force. The method opens new possibilities within sensor technology and nanoscience. The results were recently published in the prestigious scientific journal Physical Review Letters.

When you think of your own future, you tend to focus on one word in particular: investment (I accept that you may have another word in mind, but for the sake of the story let’s stick with this one). For many scientific organizations and professional societies, such as the EPS, investment in people is clearly of paramount importance and investment in talented young people is a shared vision for many of its members and groups.
