    Furthermore, because the frequency conversion happens over subwavelength scales, the demonstrated nonlinear mirrors are free from the stringent requirement of matching the phase velocities


    That could get interesting!

    It amazes me that they came up with such a complex structure - let alone building it and it working.
    Then there's this

    I don't grok the amazingness of MRG

    zero-moment half-metal

    If that's not amazing, I don't know what is. Wait until the permanent-magnet-motor fish get hold of that one.

    If I understood what it is that should amaze me, I might be amazed. No promises, though. Becoming amazed is a function of age.

    So what are you saying? 1/amazed = jaded?

    Re MRG - 'No shit Sherlock!'

    Minister for Research and Innovation Seán Sherlock TD welcomed the announcement and said, “Here is a Government-funded research centre discovering innovative solutions to problems faced by the technology industry. I would like to praise the work of Prof. Coey and his team on this world first which opens up a range of potential applications in the electronics and information technology sectors.”
