Images Capture Half-light, Half-matter Quasiparticles

Scientists have made the first real-space images of exciton-polaritons, which are a combination of light and matter. The nano-image, explains Zhe Fei, shows the waves associated with one of these quasiparticles moving inside a semiconductor. “These are waves just like water waves,” says Fei, assistant professor of physics and astronomy at Iowa State University and an associate of the US Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory. “It’s like dropping a rock on the surface of water and seeing waves. But these waves are exciton-polaritons.” Exciton-polaritons are a combination of light and matter. Li

Building the Workforces Businesses Need

JOHN RICE WHEN A COMPANY INVESTS IN A country, it asks: Do we have the right people with the right capabilities? This makes people think of new facilities, new jobs. Too often they forget the importance of developing new skills. Most educational systems—in both developed and poorer markets—are unprepared for the future skills challenge brought on by digitization. As a business, we could throw up our hands and do nothing. But as optimists, we should instead double down on being part of the solution. Focusing on training and “upskilling” when the shovels go in the ground after an initial inve

Why Does This Straw Look Like It's Broken?

Brian Klutch Out of shape Hint: Water and air have different densities. Place a straw in a glass of water, and behold: It looks broken. What’s tricking your brain? Similar to this illusion, the light that reflects off the straw allows your visual system to process and identify its shape as it travels through mediums of varying densities. But as light passes from air into water, which is denser, it changes direction, or refracts. Your brain can’t correct for these visual effects, so it decides on the location of the object (the straw) based solely on where the reflecting light is coming from. A
