A large-scale vacuum vessel for the creation of space-like conditions, the Space Physics Simulation Chamber is one of only a handful of its kind in the United States and one of the biggest in the world.
Researchers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) developed a new technique that could enable future advancements in quantum technology.
The technique squeezes quantum dots, tiny particles made of thousands of atoms, to emit single photons (individual particles of light) with precisely the same color and with positions that can be less than a millionth of a meter apart.
In February, researchers at the U.S. Navy Research Laboratory (NRL) submitted a patent application for a new method of manufacturing ultrathin flexible silicon solar cells.
WASHINGTON — Developed by the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory Plasma Physics Division, in conjunction with the Spacecraft Engineering Department, the Space PlasmA Diagnostic suitE (SPADE) experiment launched from Kennedy Space Center in Florida to the International Space Station onboard the SpaceX Dragon resupply mission (CRS-17), May 4.
WASHINGTON — Materials science researchers with the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory have found a remnant of ancient dust from the early stages of the solar system inside a primitive meteorite, named La Paz Icefield 02342 after the location of its discovery in Antarctica.
