Scientists achieve Internet access through lightbulbs

Scientists achieve Internet access through lightbulbs Successful experiments by Chinese scientists have indicated the possibility of the country’s netizens getting online through signals sent by lightbulbs (LiFi), instead of WiFi. Four computers under a one-watt LED lightbulb may connect to … Continue reading

Brighter and more efficiently produced solid-state lighting

Brighter and more efficiently produced solid-state lighting determining simple guidelines, researchers at UC Santa Barbara’s Solid State Lighting & Energy Center (SSLEC) have made it possible to optimize phosphors—a key component in white LED lighting—allowing for brighter, more efficient lights. … Continue reading

Acoustic diode may lead to brighter, clearer ultrasound images

Acoustic diode may lead to brighter, clearer ultrasound images Most people know about ultrasound through its role in prenatal imaging: those grainy, grey outlines of junior constructed from reflected sound waves. A new technology called an “acoustic diode,” envisioned by … Continue reading
