Space holography used for real-world science

Jan. 1, 2005
A holographic technique intended for use in space has recently demonstrated the existence and behavior of a force called the history drag-a phenomenon predicted in 1887, but never...
Although C60 molecules have been used to make nonlinear optical materials before (reference numbers on the x axis refer to specific examples), the nonlinear response (y axis) has always fallen into a region below an experimentally determined limit (the lower of the two bars). The previously unreachable space between the bars has been known as the quantum gap. It has now been demonstrated that approaching the fundamental physical limit-getting into this quantum gap-is achievable.
