Osram is one of the largest lighting manufacturers in the world as “light from Osram shines in about 150 countries.” Osram designs and manufactures lamps and lighting systems for more than 100 years, and lately, they had shown that they encourage greener technologies therefore they are trying to develop better lighting systems.
Last year Osram unveiled [...]

Researchers from Yale University have developed a nanodevice which combines both mechanical and optical forces at the nanoscale. Scientists have used lasers to control molecular vibrations since the 1980’s with the purpose of observing molecules “undisturbed” in their environment. The device that the Yale researchers developed is called a light-driven nanoresonator, and in the future [...]

The Japan Space Elevator Association have developed a space elevator to give up space traveling via rockets to elevators. The cable used to move the elevators is based on nanotube technology making it 180 times stronger than steel. The main reason for replacing the launching rockets is the cost of the travel making it 100 [...]
