Latest Frequency Stories
While sound typically travels far slower than light, engineers from the University of Minnesota have created sound that is loud enough so that slower sound waves can bend faster-moving light waves on a computer chip.
MIPT’s Laboratory for the Spectroscopy of Planetary Atmospheres has come up with a high-resolution meter to gauge the concentration of gases in the atmosphere with unparalleled precision.
Researchers at the University of Strathclyde have discovered that the greater wax moth is capable of sensing sound frequencies of up to 300kHz – the highest recorded frequency sensitivity of any animal in the natural world.
Environmental vibrations induced by urban railway traffic are mainly generated from uneven wheel–rail contact in the short wavelength range.
While those Verizon and AT&T commercials may claim that the respective carrier has the “fastest” network for mobile phones, new communications technology could make today’s 3G and 4G networks look as antiquated as the telegram.
If there is life on other planets, a laser frequency comb developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) may help find it.
Researchers have solved the problem of radio congestion by twisting radio waves into the shape of fusilli pasta.
Researchers at the California Institute of Technology have now created the first tunable acoustic diode-a device that allows acoustic information to travel only in one direction, at controllable frequencies.
The sun is a very noisy place, generating an inferred multi-frequency song comparable to cathedral bells.
