Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Sensing with a Twist: A New Kind of Optical Nanosensor Uses Torque for Signal Processing

Newswise imageAn international group of researchers have put a literal twist on this challenge, demonstrating a new nanoscale optomechanical resonator that can detect torsional motion at near state-of-the-art sensitivity. Their resonator, into which they couple light, also demonstrates torsional frequency mixing, a novel ability to impact optical energies using mechanical motions.
