Paired with an imaging system, a new 3D scanning approach is helping researchers in England obtain interactive 3D images of potential crime scene evidence.

With their goal set on ways to warn people earlier about earthquakes and tsunamis, a team of Swiss scientists have created an approach to obtain vibration data on the ocean floor and in less developed regions via fiber-optic networks.

Next-generation air- and space-borne communications could get a boost from a complementary combination of materials that researchers in Australia are using to develop a photonic chip that expands frequency bandwidth and information control.
