Popping Microbubbles Help Focus Light Inside the Body
A new technique developed at Caltech that uses gas-filled microbubbles for focusing light inside tissue could one day provide doctors with a minimally invasive way of destroying tumors with lasers, and lead to improved diagnostic medical imaging.
Tracking Down the "Missing" Carbon From the Martian Atmosphere
Caltech and JPL researchers identify a process involving UV light from the sun that helps explain how a moderately dense martian atmosphere 3.8 billion years ago could have evolved into the current thin one without invoking a missing carbon reservoir.
