Using Biomedical Lasers And Cameras To Detect Cancer


Biomedical engineers at Duke University have discovered a way to detect signs of cancer on a cell-by-cell basis using a technique that involves two lasers and a camera. The technique, using biomedical lasers and cameras, can assess an individual cell’s stiffness using patterns that appear within its internal structure. Several [...]

Laser Detects Damage To Military Assets


Researchers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) have demonstrated for the first time that they can discover cracks in the ship’s structure by detecting acoustic emission from cracks in riveted lap joints. Optical Sciences Division, in collaboration with the laboratory’s Material Science Division, used a distributed feedback fiber laser-acoustic emission sensor which [...]

Lasers Predict Water Flow In Soil


Lasers are a part of the technology that is used to study the movement of water through soil; a technique called soil hydrology. Through this study, soil scientists can more accurately predict water flow. Recently, researchers at the University of Kansas used a multi-stripe laser triangulation (MLT) scanner to help [...]
