NEXT-GEN ELECTRIC VEHICLE BATTERIES: THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS WE STILL NEED TO ANSWER
The next generation of electric vehicle batteries, with greater range and improved safety, could be emerging in the form of lithium metal, solid-state technology.
DRIVING IN THE SNOW IS A TEAM EFFORT FOR AI SENSORS
Nobody likes driving in a blizzard, including autonomous vehicles. To make self-driving cars safer on snowy roads, engineers look at the problem from the car’s point of view.
CyLab’s IoT SECURITY AND PRIVACY LABEL EFFECTIVELY CONVEYS RISK, STUDY FINDS
Shoppers can check food packaging to learn how much fat is in their favorite ice cream, but can they check with whom their smart speaker shares their data, and why? Not yet, but it’s in the works.
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SYSTEM COULD HELP COUNTER THE SPREAD OF DISINFORMATION
Disinformation campaigns are not new—think of wartime propaganda used to sway public opinion against an enemy. What is new, however, is the use of the internet and social media to spread these campaigns. The spread of disinformation via social media has the power to change elections, strengthen conspiracy theories, and sow discord
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
SIMULATIONS EXAMINE PERFORMANCE OF MATERIALS IN NIF EXPERIMENTS
Scientists have examined the performance of pure boron, boron carbide, high-density carbon and boron nitride ablators—the material that surrounds a fusion fuel and couples with the laser or hohlraum radiation in an experiment—in the polar direct drive exploding pusher (PDXP) platform, which is used at the National Ignition Facility (NIF). The platform uses the polar direct drive configuration to drive high ion temperatures in a room-temperature capsule and has potential applications for plasma physics studies and as a neutron source.
ELECTRONS WAITING FOR THEIR TURN: NEW MODEL EXPLAINS 3D QUANTUM MATERIAL
Scientists from the Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat—Complexity and Topology in Quantum Matter have developed a new understanding of how electrons behave in strong magnetic fields. Their results explain measurements of electric currents in three-dimensional materials that signal a quantum Hall effect—a phenomenon thus far only associated with two-dimensional metals. This new 3D effect can be the foundation for topological quantum phenomena, which are believed to be particularly robust and therefore promising candidates for extremely powerful quantum technologies. These results have just been published in the scientific journal Nature Communications.
USING THE ENVIRONMENT TO CONTROL QUANTUM DEVICES
Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) researchers have uncovered how the environment can impact highly sensitive quantum behaviors like localisation. Their findings, published in Chaos, could lead to future innovations in the design of superconducting materials and quantum devices, including super precise sensors.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
LEGAL MINING INCREASINGLY RAVAGES FORESTS IN MEGADIVERSITY HOTSPOT
Colombia is the second most biodiverse country in the world and around half of its land territory is forest-covered. Deforestation is one of the biggest worldwide threats not only for biodiversity but also for climate. In fact, removing trees by burning them or then letting them decompose in their entire life cycle, leads to massive carbon dioxide release currently reaching up to 10–15% of all the human greenhouse gas emissions.
LESSENING THE COST OF STRATEGIES TO REACH THE PARIS AGREEMENT
A team of researchers offer new insight on conversion factors of greenhouse gases into their CO2 equivalent. The publication in Science Advances puts forward the economic benefits of periodically reassessing conversion factors according to scenarios of global warming.
A FIERY PAST SHEDS NEW LIGHT ON THE FUTURE OF GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE
Centuries-old smoke particles preserved in the ice reveal a fiery past in the Southern Hemisphere and shed new light on the future impacts of global climate change, according to new research published in Science Advances.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
NAVIGATION ERROR SENDS NASA’S MARS HELICOPTER ON WILD RIDE
A navigation timing error sent NASA’s little Mars helicopter on a wild, lurching ride, its first major problem since it took to the Martian skies last month.
DARK ENERGY SURVEY RELEASES MOST PRECISE LOOK AT THE UNIVERSE’S EVOLUTION
In 29 new scientific papers, the Dark Energy Survey examines the largest-ever maps of galaxy distribution and shapes, extending more than 7 billion light-years across the universe. The extraordinarily precise analysis, which includes data from the survey’s first three years, contributes to the most powerful test of the current best model of the universe, the standard cosmological model. However, hints remain from earlier DES data and other experiments that matter in the universe today is a few percent less clumpy than predicted.
RESEARCHERS DEVELOP BETTER WAYS TO CULTURE LIVING HEART CELLS ON THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION
As part of preparing for an experiment aboard the International Space Station, researchers explored new ways to culture living heart cells for microgravity research. They found that cryopreservation, a process of storing cells at -80°C, makes it easier to transport these cells to the orbiting lab, providing more flexibility in launch and operations schedules. The process could benefit other biological research in space and on Earth.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
NEW TECHNIQUE ACTS AS ACCELERATOR, BRAKE FOR MICROSCOPIC DROPLETS
A miniscule water droplet is on the move, picking up speed as it glides along a stretch of thin, flat terrain. Abruptly, it hits a rough patch—the microscopic equivalent of glass speed bumps into which the droplet settles and stops dead.
ELECTRONS ON THE EDGE: ATOMICALLY THIN QUANTUM SPIN HALL MATERIALS
Quantum spin Hall insulators are a class of two-dimensional (2D) topological states of matter that are electrically insulating in their interior but, unlike semiconductors, carry a pair of one-dimensional (1D) metallic states, which are strictly confined to their edges.
BREAKTHROUGH IN 3D MAGNETIC NANOSTRUCTURES COULD TRANSFORM MODERN-DAY COMPUTING
Scientists have taken a step towards the creation of powerful devices that harness magnetic charge by creating the first ever three-dimensional replica of a material known as a spin-ice.
