"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."

We are taking a break
We regret that due to unavoidable reasons, we need to take a break. We'll not have our regular postings in next two weeks. Regular postings will resume on April 10th. In the mean-time, you may go through our past postings on various topics of interest. We suggest that you use the search box on top to search for past postings on topics of your interest (e.g. 'Einstein', 'Fusion', 'Nobel Prize', etc...)
