Study Reveals Origins Of An Exotic Phase Of Matter
2013-11-19 06:34:34

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Understanding superconductivity – whereby certain materials can conduct electricity without any loss of energy – has proved to be one of the most persistent problems in modern physics. Scientists have struggled for decades to develop a cohesive theory of superconductivity, largely spurred by the game-changing prospect of creating a superconductor that works at room temperature, but it has proved to be a tremendous tangle of complex physics. Now...

Casimir Force Reduced To Lowest Recorded Level
2013-10-02 07:06:13

Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis A research team that includes a physics professor at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) has recorded a drastically reduced measurement of the Casimir effect, a fundamental quantum phenomenon experienced between two neutral bodies that exist in a vacuum. For more than 60 years, scientists have studied the peculiar electromagnetic interaction between two neutral objects. The Casimir effect, a long-standing point of...

Levitating On Sound Waves
2013-07-17 05:29:50

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers at Eidgenossische Technische Hochschule Zurich (ETH) have found a way to use sound waves to make objects levitate. The team wrote in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences they were able to make objects like particles and liquid droplets fly in mid-air by letting them ride on acoustic waves. Not only were they able to make the objects levitate, but they also showed they could control the movements of objects....

Maglev
2014-04-11 09:17:26

Maglev is a vehicle propulsion system that uses magnetic levitation to move a vehicle with magnets instead of wheels. The vehicle hovers a short distance above the guide way by magnets and also uses the magnets for motion. The operation of this system is quite and maintains less friction for improved acceleration and deceleration. Weather does not affect the performance of the vehicle. Currently, some trains make use of the Maglev system, but vacuum tube trains could allow a Maglev system...

An electromagnet, a magnet whose magnetic field is produced by the flow of electric current, works until the electric current ceases. The magnetic field in a simple electromagnet is created by a wire passing through it with an electric current. The strength of the magnet depends on the amount of current. By making the wire into a coil the magnetic field is concentrated. A straight tube coil is a solenoid. A stronger magnetic field can be produced by putting a ferromagnetic material, such as...
