    DescriptionResearchers at Eindhoven University of Technology (Tu/e)and the Dutch Institute for Fundamental Energy Research (DIFFER), both in the Netherlands, have developed a new type of low-energy, nanoscale laser that transmits in all directions. The key to this omnidirectional light emission is the introduction of irregularities into the laser materials – a structure that laser makers usually work hard to avoid.
