Today's engineering headlines from the sources selected by our team:

Scientists develop first liquid nanolaser
Scientists have developed the first liquid nanoscale laser. And it's tunable in real time, meaning you can quickly and simply produce different colors, a unique and useful feature. The laser technology could lead to practical applications, such as a new form of a 'lab on a chip' for medical diagnostics. In addition to changing color in real time, the liquid nanolaser has additional advantages: it is simple to make, inexpensive to produce and operates at room temperature.

Scientists create cheaper magnetic material for cars, wind turbines
Cerium is a widely available and inexpensive rare-earth metal. Scientists have used it to create a high-performance magnet that's similar in performance to traditional dysprosium-containing magnets and could make wind turbines less expensive to manufacture.

Generating broadband terahertz radiation from a microplasma in air
Researchers have shown that a laser-generated microplasma in air can be used as a source of broadband terahertz radiation. They demonstrate that an approach for generating terahertz waves using intense laser pulses in air can be done with much lower power lasers, a major challenge until now. They have exploited the underlying physics to reduce the necessary laser power for plasma generation.

Cell phones take parents' attention away from kids on playgrounds
(American Academy of Pediatrics) Parents who take their kids to the playground may be tempted to pull out their cell phone to send a quick text or check Facebook. It may be more prudent, however, to stay focused on their child to ensure he or she plays safely, according to two studies to be presented at the Pediatric Academic Societies annual meeting in San Diego.
