Two University of Rochester scientists have found a way of using powerful laser beams to make metal surfaces last longer and be more suitable for a wide range of practical purposes. "We change the nature of the metal surface so that they can repel water," said Chunlei Guo, who is a professor of optics and physics at UR.

Physicists at the University of Rochester have created a silicon nanocavity that allows light to be trapped longer than in other similarly-sized optical cavities. An innovative design approach, which mimics evolutionary biology, allowed them to achieve a 10-fold improvement on the performance of previous nanocavities.
