TECHNOLOGY NEWS ONLINE: Rogue waves make for better supercontinuum light sources

Rogue waves of light–rare and explosive flare-ups that are mathematically similar to their oceanic counterparts–have recently been tamed by a group of researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, to produce brighter, more stable white-light sources, a breakthrough that may pave the way for better clocks, faster cameras, and more powerful radar and communications technologies.
