Observatory in Mexico Sheds Light on Origin of Excess Positrons in Outer Space

Using new data from the High-Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) Gamma-Ray Observatory in Mexico, researchers have ruled out two pulsars previously believed to be the source of excess positrons just above the Earth’s atmosphere.

Chemical Treatment Improves Quantum Dot Lasers

JLimYPark092117JeRLANLQDots2.jpg

One of the secrets to making tiny laser devices such as opthalmic surgery scalpels work even more efficiently is the use of tiny semiconductor particles, called quantum dots. In new research at Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Nanotech Team, the ~nanometer-sized dots are being doctored, or “doped,” with additional electrons, a treatment that nudges the dots ever closer to producing the desired laser light with less stimulation and energy loss.
