European Physical Society prize for R. J. Dwayne Miller

July 03, 2018
MPSD director R.J. Dwayne Miller is to receive the 2018 European Physical Society (EPS) Prize for Laser Science and Applications in recognition of his work on the SurePIRL project. The Picosecond Infrared Laser (PIRL) technology allows for more precise and tissue-conserving surgery with effectively no scar formation as well as the ex-vivo and in-vivo analysis of biological tissue. This analysis makes it easier to accurately identify the tissue which is being operated on and could lead to far less invasive surgery. [more]

Splicing together a thin film in motion

March 15, 2018
MPSD researcher Dr. Kenneth Beyerlein provides a new approach to imaging thin films on the atomic scale, using an algorithm for image recovery that splices together a sequence of frames in time. The algorithm is showcased in a publication of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) by recovering the response of a Neodymium Nickelate thin film to a disturbance initiated at its interface.
