🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
NEW DISCOVERY BRINGS ANALOG SPINTRONIC DEVICES CLOSER
The observation of nonlinearity in electron spin-related processes in graphene makes it easier to transport, manipulate and detect spins, as well as spin-to-charge conversion. It also allows analog operations such as amplitude modulation and spin amplification. This brings spintronics to the point where regular electronics was after the introduction of the first transistors. These results by University of Groningen physicists were published in the journal Physical Review Applied on 17 December.
RECREATING BIG BANG MATTER ON EARTH
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN usually collides protons together. It is these proton–proton collisions that led to the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012. But the world’s biggest accelerator was also designed to smash together heavy ions, primarily the nuclei of lead atoms, and it does so every year for about one month. And for at least two good reasons. First, heavy-ion collisions at the LHC recreate in laboratory conditions the plasma of quarks and gluons that is thought to have existed shortly after the Big Bang. Second, the collisions can be used to test and study, at the highest manmade temperatures and densities, fundamental predictions of quantum chromodynamics, the theory of the strong force that binds quarks and gluons together into protons and neutrons and ultimately all atomic nuclei.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
MEXICO CITY BAN ON SINGLE-USE PLASTICS TAKES EFFECT
A broad ban on single-use containers, forks, straws and other ubiquitous items takes effect in Mexico’s capital, one of the world’s largest cities, after more than a year of preparation.
BRAZIL WILDFIRES SURGE AGAIN IN 2020
The number of wildfires in Brazil increased 12.7 percent last year to a decade-high, according to official figures likely to add to pressure on President Jair Bolsonaro’s government over the destruction of the Amazon rainforest.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
JUPITER, SATURN MERGING IN NIGHT SKY, CLOSEST IN CENTURIES
Jupiter and Saturn will merge in the night sky Monday, appearing closer to one another than they have since Galileo’s time in the 17th century.
THE MILKY WAY’S PRIMORDIAL HISTORY AND ITS FOSSIL FINDINGS
Just as archaeologists dig hoping to find traces of the past, an international group of astrophysicists managed to get into the thick cloud of dust around the center of the Milky Way (also known as the bulge) discovering primordial clumps of gas and stars never before seen. They named this new class of stellar system ‘Bulge Fossil Fragments.’ A research team led by Francesco Ferraro (Department of Physics and Astronomy “Augusto Righi” at the University of Bologna and member of the National Institute for Astrophysics—INAF) carried out a study published in Nature Astronomy.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
SCIENTISTS TAKE A STEP TOWARDS EXPANDING THE USE OF MAGNETIC FLUIDS IN MEDICINE
Magnetic fluids are used in many different areas, including medicine, electronics, mechanical engineering, ecology, etc. Such a wide range of applications is explained by a number of its useful properties. Researchers from Peter the Great St.Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) in collaboration with colleagues from Jiangsu Normal University (JSNU) discovered new effects in magnetic fluids, which will increase its effectiveness for medical purposes in future. The results were published in Springer Proceedings in Physics.
