Latest Andrew Jordan Stories
A new type of nanoscale engine has been proposed that would use quantum dots to generate electricity from waste heat, potentially making microcircuits more efficient.
In 2006, Andrew Jordan, professor of physics and astronomy at the University of Rochester, together with Alexander Korotkov at the University of California, Riverside, spelled out how to exploit a quantum quirk to accomplish a feat long thought impossible, and last week a research team at the University of California at Santa Barbara has tested the theory, proving it correct.

- The establishment of a filial relation, specifically by adoption.
