...World’s first digital camera that allows multiple refocuses after the picture was taken, Lytro light field camera, becomes available to customers.   The camera uses a concept developed by Professor Ren Ng, the light field. The light travels with an enormous speed in lots of directions. The immense number of rays rapidly changing directions make us to see an image in different shapes, de...

Israeli scientists have found a novel way to get images through "scattering" materials such as frosted glass or skin

...stly for medical applications. But the new trick, reported in Nature Photonics, is quick, simple and uses natural light rather than lasers. It uses what is called a spatial light modulator to “undo” the scattering that makes objects opaque or non-reflecting. A camera that can “see around corners” garnered much attention in 2010, using a series of timed laser pulses to illum...

The research team, at the University of Oxford, used mice with a complete lack of light-sensing photoreceptor cells in their retinas. The mice were unable to tell the difference between light and dark. They injected “precursor” c...

...the test of the speed of neutrinos has found that the subatomic particles do not travel faster than light. Results announced in September suggested that neutrinos can exceed light speed, but were met with skepticism as that would upend Einstein’s theory of relativity. A test run by a different group, ICARUS,  at the same laboratory has now clocked them travelling at precisely light speed. T...

US researchers have discovered that light passing through the body and into the womb has an important role in the developing eye. A study, published in the journal Nature, showed that mice spending pregnancy in complete darkness had babies with altered eye development. It indicated tiny quantities of light were needed to control blood vessel growth in the eye. The researchers hope the findings wi...

A bionic eye which is powered by light has been invented by scientists at Stanford University in California. Implants currently used in patients need to be powered by a battery. The new device, described in the journal Nature Photonics, uses a special pair of glasses to beam near infrared light into the eye. This powers the implant and sends the information which could help a patient see. Disease...

Prize-winning Philips LED light bulb that lasts for 20 years is going on sale in the US on Sunday – also known as Earth Day. Made by Dutch electronics giant Philips, the bulb swaps filaments for light-emitting diodes to provide illumination. Using LEDs endows the light with a long life and a hefty price tag. The first versions are set to cost $60. Philips has arranged discounts with shops t...

Physicists from CERN, Swiss, ran again the test that had proved the theory of relativity was wrong – and broke the speed of light for a second time. Scientists of the Large Hadron Collider sent another beam of subatomic particles over 450 miles to a laboratory in Gran Sasso in the Italian Alps. And after running the modified follow-up test 20 times, the scientists recorded exactly the same result...

Faster-than-light neutrinos experiment that might have been the biggest physics story of the past century may instead be down to a faulty connection. In September 2011, the OPERA experiment reported it had seen particles called neutrinos evidently travelling faster than the speed of light.
