The common pencil squid (Loliginidae) may hold the key to a new generation of medical technologies that could communicate more directly with the human body.
Scientists seeking to understand the intricacies of high-temperature superconductivity—the ability of certain materials to carry electrical current with no energy loss—have been particularly puzzled by a mysterious phase that emerges as charge carriers are added that appears to compete with superconductivity.
Scalable, AC/DC conversion technology offers data centersincreased power efficiency, greater reliability, and significant space savings. San Jose, CA (PRWEB)
JILA researchers have developed a method of spinning electric and magnetic fields around trapped molecular ions to measure whether the ions' tiny electrons are truly round—research with major implications for future scientific understanding of the universe.
Through a process known as thermionic conversion, heat energy -- such as light from the sun or heat from burned fossil fuels -- can be converted into electricity with very high efficiency.
