    What's New in General Vacuum

    Team refrigerates liquids with a laser for the first time.

    The laser refrigeration process was first demonstrated in vacuum conditions at Los Alamos National Laboratory in 1995, but it has taken nearly 20 years to demonstrate this process in liquids.

    Researchers successfully fabricate a metamaterial using a lotus leaf as a template.

    Vacuum evaporation using thermal heating destroyed the nanorod structures on the leaf surface, but a spray 'sputtering' technique was far more successful.

    A new physical mechanism allows 'phonon lasing' driven by optical forces at ambient conditions.

    Likewise, despite the so-called "phonon laser" that has been demonstrated in several publications, the high device quality (narrow linewidth) and strict experimental demands of vacuum and low temperature necessary for observable effects or potential applications make it too complex a source for a rapid implementation.
