Scientists make conventional industrial lasers a hundred times sharper
In research, medicine and industry, different types of lasers have become an increasingly important tool. Particularly in high demand are lasers with very high precision, which is achieved with short pulses. But the shorter the pulses, the more expensive the laser, with the result that these "super lasers" are not so common. Now an international research team has found a way to compress the pulses of conventional industrial lasers - to one hundredth!

Early detection of diseases
Early detection of diseases is aided by the body’s own nanoparticles. A hot topic among cancer researchers is vesicles, nanoparticles that flow in our veins in their billions and which have proven to hold information on the health status of the body.
