Professor Robert L. McCrory, a physicist and scientific leader who has shepherded the University of Rochester’s Laboratory for Laser Energetics to international prominence during the past 35 years, will retire from the directorship on October 1, the beginning of the federal government’s fiscal year. McCrory, who holds the title of University Professor—one of just eight...

Crosman acquired laser sight company LaserMax a couple weeks after the airgun and optics manufacturer was acquired by a Connecticut capital investment company. The chain of events kicked off July 5 when Compass Diversified Holdings completed the purchase of Crosman for $152 million using both cash and credit, according to public filings of the transaction. Then, Crosman acquired LaserMax on...

Rochester, NY.  Laboratory for Laser Energetics. The first laboratory generation of an astrophysical shock wave has been reported by scientists. To produce the wave, scientists used a laser to create a high-energy plasma — a form of matter composed of atoms and charged atomic particles — that expanded into a pre-existing magnetized plasma. The interaction...

Researchers demonstrate how to encode 2.05 bits per photon, doubling existing systems that use light polarization Researchers at the University of Rochester and their collaborators have developed a way to transfer 2.05 bits per photon by using “twisted light.” This remarkable achievement is possible because the researchers used the orbital angular momentum of the photons...
