    2016 Mazda CX-9 Features Standard LED Lighting

    The 2016 Mazda CX-9 was created using low-beam headlights, which produce 900 lumens per unit—about twice the output of a comparable halogen headlight. Overall, CX-9's headlights are about 35% brighter than a...
  • The combined tools of ultrafast spectroscopy and nonlinear microscopy allow us to explore the diverse length and time scales of biology

    Ultrafast Amplifiers for High-end Spectroscopy

    From the advent of time-resolved techniques, researchers have been interested in generating shorter and shorter laser pulse durations to more effectively probe faster and faster events. Nanosecond processes, although still used in photochemistry...
