Abouraddy Lab Notches Another Breakthrough With Acceleration Experiment

January 28, 2021 by
The boundaries of basic physics continue to be tested in the laboratory of Professor Ayman Abouraddy, Ph.D., with newly published research demonstrating the feasibility of accelerating light packets. The experimental realizations of accelerating optical pulses conducted by graduate student Murat Yessenov build on previous experiments that tuned the speed of light packets in free space […]

Laser Speed Research Enters Application Phase
