The improvements in random access memory (RAM) that have driven many advances of the digital age owe much to the innovative application of physics and chemistry at the atomic scale.
Climate models are anticipating that warming temperatures and increased atmospheric water vapor will cause the number of lightning strikes experienced throughout the US to increase by 50 percent.
Pain Free Living announced it is making a Piezoelectric Stimulator after discovering US Naval Doctors have been using a Piezo stimulator to relieve pain Boston,
Paramagnetic electroluminescent paint created by the brand LitCoat can be lit with a charge and used on bicycles, cars, models, and all other paintable surfaces. LAS VEGAS, Nov.
Hundreds of individuals are injured or killed every year by lightning and STRIKE is here to help Norman, OK (PRWEB) November 04, 2014 STRIKE is a life-safety
Company LitCoat creates a first of its kind electroluminescent paint to be used on bicycles, model cars, paper and various other surfaces. LAS VEGAS, Oct.
Researchers report they have made the first experimental observation of piezoelectricity in an atomically thin material, molybdenum disulfide, resulting in a unique electric generator and mechanosensation devices that are optically transparent, extremely light, and very bendable and stretchable.
From FeRAM to Integrated Passive Devices (IPDs): will MEMS applications be the driver for future growth of thin film PZT? LONDON, Sept.
Brookhaven Lab scientists find surprising locked charge polarizations that impede performance in next-gen materials that could otherwise revolutionize data-driven devices
When we think of thunderstorms we have to remember the deadliest part of those storms and that is the lightning that occurs with them. Lightning is found in many forms. The first type of lightning is known as cloud to cloud meaning that the electric charge travels from one cloud to the other. The second type of lightning is the Cloud to Air meaning the lighting moves from the cloud and enters the clear air of the sky. A third type of lightning is the cloud to ground. This is the most...
A Radio Atmospheric signal (sometimes referred to as Sferic or Spheric), is a broadband electromagnetic impulse that occurs during atmospheric lightning discharges. Sferics spread out from the lightning source and can be received thousands of miles away. A sferic, depending on atmospheric conditions, may extend anywhere from a few kHz to several tens of kHz. Sferics from far reaching storms, over 1500 miles away, are generally offset in frequency range and may be picked up as tweeks. A...
Heat Lightning is actually faint flashes of lightning reflecting outward from distant thunderstorms. These flashes usually do not produce thunder as the storm is sometimes too far away to be heard. The term heat lightning got its name because it often occurs on hot summer nights and does not produce audible thunder. One reason heat lightning can be seen so far away is due to the reflection of the light bouncing off water particles in moist, humid air and as light is scattered throughout the...
Aurora -- The Polar Aurora are natural displays of light in the sky that can be seen with the unaided eye only at night. An auroral display in the Northern Hemisphere is called the aurora borealis, or the northern lights; in the Southern Hemisphere it is called the aurora australis. Auroras are the most visible effect of the sun's activity on the earth's atmosphere. The beautiful and often eerie curtains of light in the night time sky have been observed by people for millennia. An aurora...
