Rayleigh-scattered moonlight creates a blue sky at night. Our eyes are not sensitive enough to capture the color, but a digital camera can.

Researchers are using ferroelectric liquid crystals and micro-polymers to develop thin, flexible, large-screen displays with the ability to supply moving images.

Research into controlled combustion can address modern problems in emissions and noise control, energy efficiency, fire extinction and waste management. Laser diagnostics are helping take this field to the next level.
Decades of research into fiber-optic sensing are now being translated into safe, precise measuring instruments—including gyroscopes, temperature probes, hydrophones and chemical monitors.
