Models of anisotropy patterns are useful for understanding phenomena like the coordinated motions of heart tissue or wave flows in chemical reactions .
Electron Emission from Stripes
Graph of the calculated amount of electrons emitted by copper-based superconductors when exposed to ultraviolet light.
Red Dye Crowned in Milk
This crown is formed by the splash and droplets of a 2-mm drop of red dye impacting on a thin layer of milk.
Laser-Plasma Creates Electro-Optic Shocks
A simulation of the shock wave that forms when a laser is fired into a plasma.
Coupled waveguides have properties that could be ideal for storing of quantum information.
Waltz of the Algae
As two Volvox algae swim close to a solid surface, they attract one another and can form stable bound states in which they "waltz" around each other.
Non-Linear Vacuum Rabi Splitting
Vacuum Rabi splitting shows as a pair of resolvable peaks when a single resonant atom is confined within a cavity.
Carbon Nanotubes Deposited Like Paper Fibers
Buckypaper: Scanning electron microscope (SEM) image demonstrates a pseudo 2-D network of carbon nanotubes deposited like paper fibers in a thin, sparse sheet (NIST).
