BES Web Highlight: Single-mode gallium nitride nanowire lasers

A new top-down method for fabricating gallium nitride (GaN) nanowires with precisely controlled geometries enables single-mode, rather than typically-observed multi-mode, lasing behavior. Single-mode lasing arises from strong mode competition induced by careful restriction of the nanowire dimensions. This research was published by Sandia National Laboratories and is featured in a BES EFRC newsletter that highlights the [...]

NASA Earth at Night Video

Have you ever wondered what the Earth looks like at night? NASA provides a clear, cloud-free view of the Earth at night using the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership Satellite. The satellite utilizes an instrument known as the Visible Infrared Radiometer Suite (VIIRS), which allows the satellite to capture images of a "remarkably detailed view of [...]
