NEURAL NETWORK CLIP MIRRORS HUMAN BRAIN NEURONS IN IMAGE RECOGNITION
Open AI, the research company founded by Elon Musk, has just discovered that their artificial neural network CLIP shows behavior strikingly similar to a human brain. This find has scientists hopeful for the future of AI networks’ ability to identify images in a symbolic, conceptual and literal capacity.
‘WEARABLE MICROGRID’ USES THE HUMAN BODY TO SUSTAINABLY POWER SMALL GADGETS
Nanoengineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a “wearable microgrid” that harvests and stores energy from the human body to power small electronics. It consists of three main parts: sweat-powered biofuel cells, motion-powered devices called triboelectric generators, and energy-storing supercapacitors. All parts are flexible, washable and can be screen printed onto clothing.
MICROCHIPS OF THE FUTURE: SUITABLE INSULATORS ARE STILL MISSING
For decades, there has been a trend in microelectronics towards ever smaller and more compact transistors. 2D materials such as graphene are seen as a beacon of hope here: they are the thinnest material layers that can possibly exist, consisting of only one or a few atomic layers. Nevertheless, they can conduct electrical currents—conventional silicon technology, on the other hand, no longer works properly if the layers become too thin.

A DEVICE-INDEPENDENT PROTOCOL FOR MORE EFFICIENT RANDOM NUMBER GENERATION
Recent advancements in the development of experimental Bell tests have enabled the implementation of a new type of device-independent random number generator. Remarkably, this new type of random number generators can be realized with malicious quantum devices, without requiring detailed models of the quantum devices used.
EVIDENCE OF SUPERFLUIDITY IN A DIPOLAR SUPERSOLID
Superfluidity in liquids and gases can manifest as a reduced moment of inertia (the rotational analog of mass) under slow rotations. Non-classical rotational effects can also be considered in the elusive supersolid phases of matter where superfluidity can coexist with a lattice structure. In a new report now published in Science, L. Tanzi and a research team at the National Institute of Optics and the Department of Astronomy at the University of Florence in Italy, showed how a recently discovered supersolid phase in dipolar quantum gases featured a reduced moment of inertia. The team studied a peculiar rotational oscillation mode in a harmonic potential to deduce a supersolid fraction and provide direct evidence of the supersolid nature of the dipolar construct.
MICROWAVE-ASSISTED RECORDING TECHNOLOGY PROMISES HIGH-DENSITY HARD DISK PERFORMANCE
Researchers at Toshiba Corporation in Japan have studied the operation of a small device fabricated in the write gap of a hard disk drive’s write head to extend its recording density. The device, developed by HWY Technologies, is based on a design concept known as microwave-assisted magnetic recording, or MAMR.

BREAKING WAVES AND MOISTURE TRANSPORT DRIVE EXTREME PRECIPITATION EVENTS
Around the world each year, extreme precipitation events cause catastrophic flooding that results in tragic loss of life and costly damage to infrastructure and property. However, a variety of different weather systems can cause these extreme events, so a detailed understanding of the atmospheric processes that lead to their formation is crucial.
VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS HAD LARGE AND PERSISTENT IMPACTS ON GLOBAL HYDROCLIMATE OVER THE LAST MILLENNIUM
Large tropical volcanos have caused some of the world’s most destructive natural disasters in history, with eruptions spewing out massive quantities of harmful gases and other debris that can wipe out everything in their path.
HOW AN UNUSUALLY WARM INDIAN OCEAN CAUSED FLOODING ON YANGTZE RIVER
A devastating Yangtze River flood in China in 2020 wasn’t supposed to happen, according to the norms of climate experienced in Asia.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
SERENDIPITOUS JUNO DETECTIONS SHATTER IDEAS ABOUT ORIGIN OF ZODIACAL LIGHT
Data from the NASA spacecraft’s journey to Jupiter suggests that Mars may be shedding dust into interplanetary space.
EARLY MARS CLIMATE WAS INTERMITTENTLY WARM
A new study that characterizes the climate of Mars over the planet’s lifetime reveals that in its earliest history it was periodically warmed due to the input of greenhouse gases derived from volcanism and meteorites, yet remained relatively cold in the intervening periods, thus providing opportunities and challenges for any microbial life form that may have been emerging on the Red Planet. The study involved a national team of scientists that included Joel Hurowitz, Ph.D., of Stony Brook University. The findings are detailed in a paper published in Nature Geoscience.
ACHONDRITE FOUND TO DATE BACK TO JUST TWO MILLION YEARS AFTER BIRTH OF SOLAR SYSTEM
A team of researchers affiliated with several institutions in France and one in Japan has found that an achondrite found in Algeria (in the Saharan desert) last year dates back to just 2 million years after the birth of the solar system. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the group describes their study of the rock and what they learned about it.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
COMBINED TECHNIQUE USING DIAMOND PROBES ENABLES NANOSCALE IMAGING OF MAGNETIC VORTEX STRUCTURES
Obtaining a precise understanding of magnetic structures is one of the main objectives of solid-state physics. Significant research is currently being undertaken in this field, the aim being to develop future data processing applications that use tiny magnetic structures as information carriers. Physicists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) and the Helmholtz Institute Mainz (HIM) recently presented a new method for investigating magnetic structures combining two different techniques. This allows to measure and map the magnetization as well as the magnetic fields of the sample. Involved in the project were atomic physicists from the work group led by Professor Dmitry Budker and the team of experimental solid-state physicists led by Professor Mathias Kläui. The findings have been published in Physical Review Applied.
NEW BRAIN SENSOR OFFERS ANSWERS ABOUT ALZHEIMER’S
Scientists at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have developed a tool to monitor communications within the brain in a way never before possible, and it has already offered an explanation for why Alzheimer’s drugs have limited effectiveness and why patients get much worse after going off of them.
HUMIDITY IN BREATH MAKES COTTON MASKS MORE EFFECTIVE AT SLOWING THE SPREAD OF COVID-19
Researchers have come up with a better way to test which fabrics work best for masks that are meant to slow the spread of COVID-19. By testing those fabrics under conditions that mimic the humidity of a person’s breath, the researchers have obtained measurements that more accurately reflect how the fabrics perform when worn by a living, breathing person.
