In the current issue of the science journal Nature, an international team of scientists presents an analysis of a series of experiments which sheds light on the nature of the phase transition after the Big Bang about 13.7 billion years ago.
When light pulses from an extremely powerful laser system are fired onto material samples, the electric field of the light rips the electrons off the atomic nuclei. A plasma is created. The electrons couple with the laser light in the process. When flying out of the target, they pull the atomic cores behind them. In order to experimentally investigate this complex acceleration process, researchers from the German Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have developed a novel type of diagnostics for innovative laser-based particle accelerators.
An international team of researchers, affiliated with UNIST has presented an innovative wearable technology that will turn your skin into a loudspeaker.
A team of researchers, affiliated with South Korea's Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) has identified variables that control the cavity-filling rates, required for liquids to penetrate into the cavities.
Argonne researchers have used thin sheets of graphene to prevent photocathode materials from interacting with air, which increases their lifetimes. Photocathodes are used to convert light to electricity in accelerators and other physics experiments.
An experiment at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln demonstrated how the application of intense light boosts electrons to their highest attainable speeds.
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology have theoretically demonstrated that special tetrahedron nanostructures composed of certain metals have a higher degree of symmetry than the geometrical symmetry of spherical atoms. Nanomaterials with unique and unprecedented electrical and magnetic properties arising from this symmetry will be developed and used for next-generation electronic devices.
Printed electronics use standard printing techniques to manufacture electronic devices on different substrates like glass, plastic films, and paper. Interest in this area is growing because of the potential to create cheaper circuits more efficiently than conventional methods. A new study published in AIP Advances provides insights into the processing of copper nanoparticle ink with green laser light.
The properties of quantum mechanics can be utilized, for example, in technology and encrypting messages, but the disadvantage is the occasional disappearing of information. For the first time, a research group consisting of Finnish and Chinese scientists has found a way to fully control the information escaping the qubit.
An international team of researchers led by Princeton physicist Zahid Hasan has discovered a novel quantum state of matter whose symmetry can be manipulated at will by an external magnetic field. The methods demonstrated in a series of experiments could be useful for exploring materials for next-generation nano- or quantum technologies.
