Theorists Predict New Single-Layer Material Could Go Beyond Graphene, Conducting Electricity with 100 Percent Efficiency at Room Temperature
Organic solar cells have long been touted as lightweight, low-cost alternatives to rigid solar panels made of silicon.
Advances in technology for computation and information storage always require to make the systems smaller and faster.
Control of the Magnetic Moment of Single Atoms Is the Key to Compact Data Memories and Quantum Computers
NASA is preparing to launch an inexpensive, football-sized probe to study lightning, including its effects on the atmosphere and the possible link between the phenomenon and powerful energy bursts known as terrestrial gamma ray flashes.
Astronomers have long wondered exactly what the enigmatic jets given off by black holes are made of. Now, an international team of scientists, writing in the journal Nature, has apparently solved the mystery and discovered the composition of those high-speed beams of matter.
A new chapter has been opened in our understanding of the chemical activity of nanoparticles says a team of international scientists.
Whether it is diagnostic imaging, analysis of unknown substances or ultrafast communication – terahertz radiation sources are becoming more and more important. At the Vienna University of Technology, an important breakthrough has been achieved.
MIT physicists have proposed a new experiment to look for the elusive dark matter particle known as the 'A Prime' particle.
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...
