What is Double-Sided Polishing?

Double-Sided grinding and polishing uses planetary action that suspends particles in a liquid vehicle to abrade windows evenly from both surfaces. Because of the special way the machines grind and polish the windows, generally there is less thermal distortion, surface imperfections, and edge chipping. Double-Sided lapping and polishing (DSLP) holds the components in sprocketed or

Hands-On Learning in Classroom Significantly Boosts STEM Retention

Recent studies have confirmed that students who participate in hands on research are much more likely to complete a science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) degree. Course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) are likely having this effect on student’s success, because they allow students to use the same problem solving, creativity, and math skills they would

Researchers Demonstrate Record Optical Nonlinearity for Indium Tin Oxide

Research lead by Robert W. Boyd, the Professor of Optics and Physics at the University of Rochester, has led to a breakthrough that may change the way researchers approach photonics applications. The breakthrough had to do with what physicists call nonlinear optics – which is the different ways materials behave contingent on the intensity of

Physicists Discover New Form of Light That Could Transform Future of Fiber-Optic Communications

A new discovery made by two Irish Physicists has changed our fundamental understanding of light, with implications effecting quantum computing and fiber-optic communications. The discovery was made by Paul Eastham and John Donegan from Trinity College Dublin’s School of Physics. In the 1830s physicists concluded that photons were limited to integer values of angular momentum. It was
