Five-Year Search for Dark Energy Begins
Five-Year Search for Dark Energy Begins
The Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) has begun its five-year search for dark energy. The device, housed at Kitt Peak National Observatory near Tucson, Ariz., will aim its robotic array of 5000 fiber optic “eyes” at the night sky to gather and study the light from tens of millions of galaxies and other distant objects within the universe.

Ultralow-Loss Mirrors Boost Spectroscopy, Detection
Ultralow-Loss Mirrors Boost Spectroscopy, Detection
Collaborators from the University of Vienna, The University of Kansas, and Thorlabs have demonstrated high-performance laser mirrors in the mid-infrared range that absorb fewer than 10 out of a million photons. The mirrors' properties show promise for high-sensitivity applications, such as sensitive molecular spectroscopy.
