Majorana fermion
2014-10-04 08:36:22

Chuck Bednar for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists from Princeton University have discovered an unusual new type of particle that is essentially its own antiparticle – behaving simultaneously like matter and antimatter, according to a new study currently appearing in the online edition of the journal Science. The particle, which is known as a Majorana fermion, was detected and imaged using a two-story-tall microscope floating in an ultralow-vibration lab, the researchers...

topological insulator
2014-09-24 03:00:48

Vince Horiuchi, University of Utah University of Utah engineers discovered a way to create a special material – a metal layer on top of a silicon semiconductor – that could lead to cost-effective, superfast computers that perform lightning-fast calculations but don’t overheat. This new “topological insulator” behaves like an insulator on the inside but conducts electricity on the outside and may pave the way for quantum computers and fast spintronic devices. The research,...

dark matter AMS
2014-09-19 07:17:18

Chuck Bednar for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online Thanks to a particle detector module mounted to the exterior of the International Space Station (ISS), researchers from the MIT Laboratory for Nuclear Science and their colleagues have collected new measurements which could help scientists learn more about the origin and characteristics of dark matter. The unit, known as the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS), captures incoming cosmic rays from throughout the galaxy. Out of about 41...

By Laurel Hamers, American Institute of Physics Thin layer of picene molecules attached to a silver surface maintain their structure and function, demonstrating potential for electronic applications The emerging field of molecular electronics could take our definition of portable to the next level, enabling the construction of tiny circuits from molecular components. In these highly efficient devices, individual molecules would take on the roles currently played by...

Two Exotic Forms Of Carbon Crafted Into A Molecule For Steering Electron Flow
2014-09-11 03:17:58

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory Scientists have married two unconventional forms of carbon – one shaped like a soccer ball, the other a tiny diamond – to make a molecule that conducts electricity in only one direction. This tiny electronic component, known as a rectifier, could play a key role in shrinking chip components down to the size of molecules to enable faster, more powerful devices. "We wanted to see what new, emergent properties might come out when you put these two...

New Combination Of Materials Opens The Door For Integrated Nanophotonic Circuits
2014-09-05 03:48:53

By David Barnstone, University of Rochester A new combination of materials can efficiently guide electricity and light along the same tiny wire, a finding that could be a step towards building computer chips capable of transporting digital information at the speed of light. Reporting today in The Optical Society's (OSA) high-impact journal Optica, optical and material scientists at the University of Rochester and Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich describe a basic model...

Promising Ferroelectric Materials Suffer From Unexpected Electric Polarizations

The Cathode Ray Tube, which has internal or external means to accelerate and deflect electron beams, is a vacuum tube containing an electron gun and a fluorescent screen. The electron beams that are deflected are used to create images in the form of light emitted from the fluorescent screen. The CRT works by using an evacuated glass envelope which is large, deep, heavy, and relatively fragile. Ferdinand Braun is credited with the first CRT in 1897. It can also be known as the Braun tube....

Solar Radiation -- Solar radiation is radiant energy emitted by the sun due to nuclear fusion reactions. Fusion is the process whereby stars produce huge quantities of energy from the fusion of hydrogen or helium, in one of the most efficient processes of energy generation. The radiation referred to is usually electromagnetic energy, particularly infrared radiation, visible light, and ultraviolet. Some stars are known to emit radiation of other wavelengths. Solar neutrinos are a...
