(Laboratory Equipment)   According to Oxford researchers a quantum effect in which excited atoms team up to emit an enhanced pulse of light can be turned on its head to create super-absorbing systems to make the ultimate camera.

Is this like when Data reconfigured the deflector dish to emit a tachyon pulse beam?

/where is the bunny with the pancake on its head?

It's true. I have the data to back it up:

light absorption by suppression of emission of lower quantum  energy photons

As acronyms go, not so good.

demaL-demaL-yeH: light absorption by suppression of emission of lower quantum  energy photons

That would be a great scrabble word though.

Hmm, I wonder if you could step this concept up enough to where you could start harvesting wavelengths of electromagnetic energy higher than light? Maybe even to the point where you could start sucking down radiation from the decay of nuclear material? That'd be fun, just dump some spent fuel rods into a container surrounded by these things, let it stew and all the emissions get funneled/absorbed to do what you need them to do.

There are fungi growing inside Chernobyl which feed on gamma rays.

As long as it was just a gamma source and didn't decay into anything else, yes. However, fuel rods usually emit other forms of radiation that would cause all sorts of other reactions, both nuclear and then chemical.

LASELQEP, in the Persian language, means "young attractive actress who recently came out about her bisexuality", if that helps.

Was someone trying to make an Oxford comma joke out of the headline? Headline seems lacking commas.

No, it farking doesn't - and that applies to both clauses.

You can't use "both" when referring to quantities greater than two.

You, sir, are a lost clause.
