Heating Water Ultrafast
2013-12-16 12:25:16

DESY Novel method opens new paths for experiments with heated samples of biological relevance Scientists from the Hamburg Center for Free-Electron Laser Science have devised a novel way to boil water in less than a trillionth of a second. The theoretical concept, which has not yet been demonstrated in practice, could heat a small amount of water by as much as 600 degrees Celsius in just half a picosecond (a trillionth of a second). That is much less than the proverbial blink of an eye:...

WISE Birthday Image
2013-12-13 15:43:15

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online To coincide with the fourth anniversary of NASA’s Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) mission, the space agency has released an image showing a unique juxtaposition – a distant, dying star called the Helix nebula, surrounded by a halo of relatively close asteroids tracks. The release of the image and the mission’s fourth anniversary comes after NASA brought WISE out of hibernation back in August to search for more...

Reflectance data for Acktar black light-absorbing coatings have been incorporated into the libraries of the major optics simulation software packages Zemax and TracePro and soon will be incorporated into ASAP and FRED. Kiryat- Gat, Israel (PRWEB) December 10, 2013 A central application of these simulation packages is in design to reduce the negative effects of stray light from bright objects outside the field-of-view and from thermal emission within the system itself. Stray light which is...

Invisibility Cloak Chinese
2013-12-10 13:00:06

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The Chinese government is funding research projects in an attempt to create the world’s first invisibility cloak. The government has funded at least 40 research teams over the past three years to develop something that has only been seen in movies like Harry Potter. According to a report by the South China Morning Post, scientists working on the project said Beijing believes the technology could lead to wider technological...

Research on less-studied but ever-present UVA1 rays shows just two daily exposures can start skin-aging process A low level of daily exposure to a common component of sunlight can cause skin damage at the molecular level after just a few days, new University of Michigan Medical School research shows. The findings highlight the need for better sunscreens to protect against these damaging rays, and prevent the process that can cause skin to look old, wrinkled and sagging prematurely....

Intense 2-color Double X-ray Laser Pulses Generated For First Time
2013-12-04 12:47:43

RIKEN A team working at the SACLA X-ray Free-Electron Laser (XFEL) in Japan has succeeded in generating ultra-bright, two-color X-ray laser pulses, for the first time in the hard X-ray region. These light pulses with different wavelengths, whose time separation can be adjusted with attosecond accuracy, are very powerful tools to investigate the structure of matter and the dynamics of ultrafast physical processes and chemical reactions. SACLA is one of only two facilities in the world to...

A magnifying glass is a convex lens, usually mounted in a frame with a handle, which is used to produce a magnified image of an object. The glass works by creating a magnified virtual image of an object behind the lens. However, the distance between the lens and the object must be shorter than the focal length for the glass to work. If the distance is not correct then the image will appear small and inverted. Many magnifying glasses are mounted on a stand to insure the proper distance...

UV Astronomy -- UV astronomy is the branch of astronomy and astrophysics which deals with objects visible in ultraviolet (UV) radiation. UV radiation ranges approximatively from 10nm (extreme UV) to 380nm (near UV). Ultraviolet line spectrum measurements are used to discern the chemical composition, densities, and temperatures of interstellar medium, and the temperature and composition of hot young stars. UV observations can also provide essential information about the evolution of...

Electromagnetic Spectrum -- The electromagnetic spectrum describes the various types of electromagnetic radiation based on their wavelengths. Radio, representing wavelengths from a few feet to well over a mile, is at one end of the spectrum. Gamma ray radiation is at the other end: the wavelength of the harder types is so short, in the subatomic range, that we do not have instruments capable of directly measuring it. While the above classification scheme is generally accurate, in...

Electromagnetic Radiation -- Electromagnetic radiation is a combination of oscillating electric and magnetic fields propagating through space and carrying energy from one place to another. Light is a form of electromagnetic radiation. The theoretical study of electromagnetic radiation is called electrodynamics, a subfield of electromagnetism. When any wire (or other conducting object such as an antenna) conducts alternating current, electromagnetic radiation is propagated at the same...
