Hi, A 4um diameter sphere of calcium carbonate was optically levitated by a laser, and the laser polarization was used to spin the sphere up to 600 million RPM, at which point it disintegrated! http://phys.org/news/2013-08-fastest-rotating-man-made.html I guess it won't be long until someone will do this with diamonds, as they are being optically levitated as well: http://phys.org/n...

So I get the lonnnng instruction sheet with my toner on how to refill my laser cartridge. :( No no no no.. It's not like that anymore! You go to Youtube and find the video. :) And I found one. And it's so much more clear. Vid beats text. There's no flying cars in this future but the internet is really cool. :)

Hi all, The Chinese are knocking out lasers like these at ridiculously cheap prices currenty: http://tinyurl.com/z59lk8s And I've seen others *even* cheaper than that including postage. There are a good many applications for these parts that spring to mind, but the ones I'm thinking about require some sort of sensor capable of detecting if the beam is broken.

I got around to testing a whole bunch of laser diodes, which we tune to the 780 nm line of Rubidium. A number of them (~10-20%) have a long wavelength, and I'll have to cool them to T < 10 C*. I'm a bit worried about condensation. (I just have to get below the local dew point.. is that correct?) So I could hold these diodes back, we've got plenty. I then thought that I could run '
