ELECTROMAGNETIC-CIRCUIT CO-DESIGN APPROACH LEADS TO DYNAMICALLY PROGRAMMABLE HOLOGRAPHIC TERAHERTZ METASURFACES
With the help of integrated CMOS technology and electromagnetic design, Princeton researchers have demonstrated a key device that could potentially enable high-speed wireless links at terahertz frequencies.
METHOD FINDS HIDDEN WARNING SIGNALS IN MEASUREMENTS COLLECTED OVER TIME
When you’re responsible for a multimillion-dollar satellite hurtling through space at thousands of miles per hour, you want to be sure it’s running smoothly. And time series can help.
FUJIFILM, IBM UNVEIL 580-TERABYTE MAGNETIC TAPE
When it comes to magnetic tape storage capacity, smaller is larger. That is, as the magnetic particles that store data become smaller, more data can be stockpiled in the same amount of space.
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
ULTRA-THIN DESIGNER MATERIALS UNLOCK QUANTUM PHENOMENA
A team of theoretical and experimental physicists have designed a new ultra-thin material that they have used to create elusive quantum states. Called one-dimensional Majorana zero energy modes, these quantum states could have a huge impact for quantum computing.
LONGEST KNOWN EXPOSURE PHOTOGRAPH EVER CAPTURED USING A BEER CAN
A photograph thought to be the longest exposure image ever taken has been discovered inside a beer can at the University of Hertfordshire’s Bayfordbury Observatory.
TINY QUANTUM COMPUTER SOLVES REAL OPTIMIZATION PROBLEM
Quantum computers have already managed to surpass ordinary computers in solving certain tasks—unfortunately, totally useless ones. The next milestone is to get them to do useful things. Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have now shown that they can solve a small part of a real logistics problem with their small, but well-functioning quantum computer.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
RESEARCHERS DIVE INTO THE BIOGEOCHEMISTRY OF OCEAN ANOXIC ZONES
With no dissolved oxygen to sustain animals or plants, ocean anoxic zones are areas where only microbes suited to the environment can live.
GREENLAND ‘KNICKPOINTS’ COULD STALL SPREAD OF GLACIAL THINNING
The jagged terrain of Greenland’s mountains is protecting some of the island’s outlet glaciers from warm coastal waters, according to a team of researchers that included scientists from The University of Texas at Austin and NASA.
RESTORING WETLANDS NEAR FARMS WOULD DRAMATICALLY REDUCE WATER POLLUTION
Runoff from fertilizer and manure application in agricultural regions has led to high levels of nitrate in groundwater, rivers, and coastal areas. These high nitrate levels can threaten drinking water safety and also lead to problems with algal blooms and degradation of aquatic ecosystems.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
CAN WHITE DWARFS HELP SOLVE THE COSMOLOGICAL LITHIUM PROBLEM?
For the first time, hard-to-find lithium has been identified and measured in the atmosphere of burned out stars called white dwarfs, according to a study led by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill published online in the journal Science.
MULTI-MESSENGER ASTRONOMY OFFERS NEW ESTIMATES OF NEUTRON STAR SIZE AND UNIVERSE EXPANSION
A combination of astrophysical measurements has allowed researchers to put new constraints on the radius of a typical neutron star and provide a novel calculation of the Hubble constant that indicates the rate at which the universe is expanding.
CHINESE CAPSULE RETURNS TO EARTH CARRYING MOON ROCKS
A Chinese lunar capsule returned to Earth on Thursday with the first fresh rock samples from the moon in more than 40 years, offering the possibility of new insights into the history of the solar system and marking a new landmark for China’s rapidly advancing space program.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
SCIENTISTS FIRST TO SIMULATE A LARGE-SCALE VIRUS, M13
Atomistic simulations are a powerful tool to study the movement and interactions of atoms and molecules. In many biological processes, large-scale effects, for example, assembly of large viruses to nanoparticles are important. The assembly processes of these large viruses are of fundamental importance to the design of many devices and viral protein-targeted therapeutics. However, the time and length scale of these assembly processes are usually too large for simulations at molecular resolution.
SCIENTISTS DISCOVER INSULATOR-TO-SEMICONDUCTOR TRANSITION IN FLUORESCENT CARBON QUANTUM DOTS
Recently, researchers led by Prof. XU Wen from the Institute of Solid State Physics of the Hefei Institutes of Physical Science (HFIPS), along with their collaborators from the Southwest University in Chongqing, applied the Terahertz time domain spectroscopy (THz TDS) to study the optoelectronic properties of fluorescent carbon quantum dots (FQCDs).
NEW NANOBIOMATERIAL FROM THE SILK OF A MITE WITH ‘PROMISING BIOMEDICAL PROPERTIES’
An international team of researchers has developed a new nanomaterial from the silk produced by the Tetranychus lintearius mite. This nanomaterial has the ability to penetrate human cells without damaging them and, therefore, has “promising biomedical properties”.
