Faster Dental Treatment With New Dental Filling Material
2014-05-01 03:46:56

Vienna University of Technology A new dental filling material, developed at the Vienna University of Technology, is easier to harden. It makes dental treatment faster and easier. In modern dentistry, amalgam fillings have become unpopular. Instead, white composite materials are more commonly used, which at first glance can hardly be distinguished from the tooth. The majority of these composites are based on photoactive materials that harden when they are exposed to light. But as the...

Engineers are developing an optical “nanocavity” to boost light absorption in semiconductors; it could improve solar cells, cameras and more Associated with unhappy visits to the dentist, “cavity” means something else in the branch of physics known as optics. Put simply, an optical cavity is an arrangement of mirrors that allows beams of light to circulate in closed paths. These cavities help us build things like lasers and optical fibers used for communications. Now, an...

An alloy that may improve high-temperature electronics in oil and geothermal wells was really a solution in search of a problem. Sandia National Laboratories first investigated the gold-silver-germanium alloy about 15 years ago as a possible bonding material in a new neutron tube product. But a design change forced Sandia to shelve the material, said Paul Vianco, who has worked in soldering and brazing technology at Sandia for 26 years. Then a few years ago, researchers working on other...

Ultrathin Coatings Change Color With Only A Few Atoms' Difference In Thickness

In Harvard's Pierce Hall, the surface of a small germanium-coated gold sheet shines vividly in crimson. A centimeter to the right, where the same metallic coating is literally only about 20 atoms thicker, the surface is a dark blue, almost black. The colors form the logo of the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), where researchers have demonstrated a new way to customize the color of metal surfaces by exploiting a completely overlooked optical phenomenon. For...

Semiconductor Nanoflowers Hold Promise For Energy Storage And Solar Cells
2012-10-12 05:29:59

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A research team from North Carolina State University has created flower-like structures out of germanium sulfide (GeS), which is a semiconductor material. The GeS flowers have extremely thin petals, 20-30 nanometers thick, with an enormous surface area. These flowers hold promise for next-generation energy storage devices and solar cells. “Creating these GeS nanoflowers is exciting because it gives us a huge surface area in...

tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
