CU and NIST scientists reveal inner workings of magnets, a finding that could lead to faster computers

March 14, 2012

Using the world’s fastest light source -- specialized X-ray lasers -- scientists at the University of Colorado Boulder and the National Institute of Standards and Technology have revealed the secret inner life of magnets, a finding that could lead to faster and “smarter” computers.

CU-NIST 'star comb' joins quest for Earth-like planets

If there is life on other planets, a laser frequency comb developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, or NIST, may help find it.

Such a comb -- a tool for precisely measuring frequencies, or colors, of light -- has for the first time been used to calibrate measurements of starlight from stars other than the Sun. The good results suggest combs will eventually fulfill their potential to boost the search for Earth-like planets to a new level.

CU and NREL get 10 more Toyota hybrids to plug into smart grid study
