Control of the Magnetic Moment of Single Atoms Is the Key to Compact Data Memories and Quantum Computers
In the current issue of the nature photonics magazine, researchers present a method for wireless data transmission at a world-record rate of 100 gigabits per second.
It is obvious from the data of the KASCADE-Grande experiment at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) that the so-called “knee” of the cosmic rays, a bend in the energy spectrum at high energies, is located at different energies for light and heavy particles.
Classical X-ray radiographs provide information about internal, absorptive structures of organisms such as bones.
By means of special metamaterials, light and sound can be passed around objects. KIT researchers now succeeded in demonstrating that the same materials can also be used to specifically influence the propagation of heat.
Ultrafast, efficient, and reliable single-photon detectors are among the most sought-after components in photonics and quantum communication, which have not yet reached maturity for practical application.
Results of Latest Models for Regional Precipitation and Temperature Distribution Deviate Strongly / Number of Measurement Stations Worldwide Is Decreasing Dramatically
For the first time, a superconducting current limiter based on YBCO strip conductors has now been installed at a power plant.
Progress of metamaterials in nanotechnologies has made the invisibility cloak, a subject of mythology and science fiction, become reality: Light waves can be guided around an object to be hidden, in such a way that this object appears to be non-existent.
