LUCIDGAMES: A TECHNIQUE TO PLAN ADAPTIVE TRAJECTORIES FOR AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES
While many self-driving vehicles have achieved remarkable performance in simulations or initial trials, when tested on real streets, they are often unable to adapt their trajectories or movements based on those of other vehicles or agents in their surroundings. This is particularly true in situations that require a certain degree of negotiation, for instance, at intersections or on streets with multiple lanes.
EXPLORING THE POTENTIAL OF NEAR-SENSOR AND IN-SENSOR COMPUTING SYSTEMS
As the number of devices connected to the internet continues to increase, so does the amount of redundant data transfer between different sensory terminals and computing units. Computing approaches that intervene in the vicinity of or inside sensory networks could help to process this growing amount of data more efficiently, decreasing power consumption and potentially reducing the transfer of redundant data between sensing and processing units.
NEW ENGINE CAPABILITY ACCELERATES ADVANCED VEHICLE RESEARCH
In the quest for advanced vehicles with higher energy efficiency and ultra-low emissions, Oak Ridge National Laboratory researchers are accelerating a research engine that gives scientists and engineers an unprecedented view inside the atomic-level workings of combustion engines in real time.
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
RESEARCHERS INVENT METHOD TO ‘SKETCH’ QUANTUM DEVICES WITH FOCUSED ELECTRONS
It has long been a dream to invent new materials from the “top down” choosing which atoms go where to engineer properties of interest. A technique created by researchers out of the Department of Physics and Astronomy enables them to “sketch” patterns of electrons into a programmable quantum material—lanthanum aluminate/strontium titanate or “LAO/STO”. Using this approach, they can create quantum devices and with feature sizes comparable to the spacing between electrons, and even “sketch” artificial lattices for electrons to traverse, with extremely high precision.
SEEKING ANSWERS IN FERROELECTRIC PATTERNING
Why do some ferroelectric materials display bubble-shaped patterning, while others display complex, labyrinthine patterns?
OPTOELECTRONIC DEVICES THAT EMIT WARM AND COOL WHITE LIGHT
The advantages of light-emitting diodes (LEDs), such as their tiny size, low cost and excellent power efficiency, mean they are found everywhere in modern life. A KAUST team has recently developed a way of producing a white-light LED that overcomes some critical challenges.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
MUDDYING THE WATERS: WEATHERING MIGHT REMOVE LESS ATMOSPHERIC CARBON DIOXIDE THAN THOUGHT
The weathering of rocks at the Earth’s surface may remove less greenhouse gases from the atmosphere than previous estimates, says new research from the University of Cambridge.
SATELLITES CAN REVEAL RISK OF FORCED LABOR IN THE WORLD’S FISHING FLEET
Vessels known to have crew that are subject to forced labor behave in systematically different ways to the rest of the global fishing fleet, reveals a new paper published today in the scientific journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The discovery was used to build a first-of-its-kind model to identify and predict vessels at high risk of engaging in these abuses.
SCIENTISTS AND PHILOSOPHER TEAM UP, PROPOSE A NEW WAY TO CATEGORIZE MINERALS
A diamond lasts forever, but that doesn’t mean all diamonds have a common history.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
ROBUST STELLAR FLARES MIGHT NOT PREVENT LIFE ON EXOPLANETS, COULD FACILITATE ITS DETECTION
Although violent and unpredictable, stellar flares emitted by a planet’s host star do not necessarily prevent life from forming, according to a new Northwestern University study.
STUDY FINDS METEORIC EVIDENCE FOR A PREVIOUSLY UNKNOWN ASTEROID
A Southwest Research Institute-led team of scientists has identified a potentially new meteorite parent asteroid by studying a small shard of a meteorite that arrived on Earth a dozen years ago. The composition of a piece of the meteorite Almahata Sitta (AhS) indicates that its parent body was an asteroid roughly the size of Ceres, the largest object in the main asteroid belt, and formed in the presence of water under intermediate temperatures and pressures.
A ROSETTA STONE FOR PLANET FORMATION
Planets are formed from the disk of gas and dust around a star, but the mechanisms for doing so are imperfectly understood. Gas is the key driver in the dynamical evolution of planets, for example, because it is the dominant component of the disk (by mass). The timescale over which the gas dissipates sets the timescale for planet formation, yet its distribution in disks is just starting to be carefully measured. Similarly, the chemical composition of the gas determines the composition of the future planets and their atmospheres, but even after decades of studying protoplanetary disks, their chemical compositions are poorly constrained; even the gas-to-dust ratios are largely unknown.

GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE QUANTUM DOTS: JUST RIGHT FOR PEAK SOLAR PANEL PERFORMANCE
Scientists in Australia have developed a process for calculating the perfect size and density of quantum dots needed to achieve record efficiency in solar panels.
PHYSICS STUDENT MAKES WORLD’S SMALLEST CHRISTMAS TREE
Every year, people all over the world try to make the biggest artificial Christmas tree, like the Gubbio Christmas Tree, formed by thousands of lights on the slopes of Mount Ingino, or the illumination of the 372-meter high transmission mast at Lopik in The Netherlands. Maura Willems, a student of Applied Physics at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), decided to do the opposite. She created what is probably the world’s smallest Christmas tree.
NEW NANOMATERIAL HELPS OBTAIN HYDROGEN FROM A LIQUID ENERGY CARRIER, IN A KEY STEP TOWARD A STABLE AND CLEAN FUEL SOURCE
Hydrogen is a sustainable source of clean energy that avoids toxic emissions and can add value to multiple sectors in the economy including transportation, power generation, metals manufacturing, among others. Technologies for storing and transporting hydrogen bridge the gap between sustainable energy production and fuel use, and therefore are an essential component of a viable hydrogen economy. But traditional means of storage and transportation are expensive and susceptible to contamination. As a result, researchers are searching for alternative techniques that are reliable, low-cost and simple. More-efficient hydrogen delivery systems would benefit many applications such as stationary power, portable power, and mobile vehicle industries.
