The Photography industry has experienced a number of changes, as digital cameras and postproduction technologies have increasingly affected operators. While photographers are benefiting from the changes by increasing their efficiency and availability, consumers are now able to take professional-quality images without the need for a specialist. Still, revenue is expected to improve slightly over the next five years, as operators focus on niche markets, like event, sports and church directory...

2011-09-08 05:40:30

  Researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute have measured the lifetime of an extremely stable energy level of magnesium atoms with great precision. Magnesium atoms are used in research with ultra-precise atomic clocks. The new measurements show a lifetime of 2050 seconds, which corresponds to approximately ½ hour. This is the longest lifetime ever measured in a laboratory. The results have been published in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters. The experiment...

In an achievement that could help enable fast quantum computers, University of Michigan physicists have built a better Rydberg atom trap. Rydberg atoms are highly excited, nearly-ionized giants that can be thousands of times larger than their ground-state counterparts. As a result of their size, interactions between Rydberg atoms can be roughly a million times stronger than between regular atoms. This is why they could serve as faster quantum circuits, said Georg Raithel, associate chair and...

U.S. physicists say they have discovered giant Rydberg atom molecules with a bond as large as a red blood cell. The University of Oklahoma researchers led by Professor James Shaffer said determining how Rydberg molecules interact is important because Rydberg atoms are a key ingredient in atom based quantum computation schemes. The scientists said giant Rydberg molecules are formed when two Rydberg atoms interact. A Rydberg atom is an atom that has at least one electron orbiting the nucleus at...
