2,300-Year-Old Tech Used To Create New Laser Beam
One thing we love at Pacific Science Center is explaining basic scientific principles in ways everyone can understand. A good example is our outdoor Archimedes Screw that explains one of humankind’s first water pumps. Now, scientists in Israel have used that 2,300-year-old concept to develop a new laser beam that can move particles in specific directions. Whoa! A beam of light that can move things. This has huge implications in the field of quantum computing and the study of biological specimens and pollutants, among other things.
