2Physics Quote:
"Lasers are light sources with well-defined and well-manageable properties, making them an ideal tool for scientific research. Nevertheless, at some points the inherent (quasi-) monochromaticity of lasers is a drawback. Using a convenient converting phosphor can produce a broad spectrum but also results in a loss of the desired laser properties, in particular the high degree of directionality. To generate true white light while retaining this directionality, one can resort to nonlinear effects like soliton formation."

Through Einstein's Eyes

Relativistic ride on a roller coaster &
On a desert road at relativistic speed (0.76 times the speed of light)

If you love relativity and get amazed thinking about all its seemingly wierd
concepts and consequences, you would surely like the following websites of
the Physics department of Australian National University (ANU):

Seeing Relativity :
The Australian National University relativistic visualization project has
used supercomputers to simulate what we might see in a world where the
effects of Einstein's theory of special relativity are everyday experiences.
You can also download two extended relativistic optics videos,
Visualizing Special Relativity, and Seeing Relativity, in RealPlayer format.
A complete printer-friendly commentary is also available for the videos.

Through Einstein's Eyes Online :
You may also visit the Through Einstein's Eyes site to find out about their
latest multimedia work on relativistic visualisation.
