redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Electromagnetic noise from AM broadcast signals (or "electrosmog") could be interfering with the migratory flight paths of birds by disrupting the animals' "internal compass,” German researchers reported this week in the journal Nature. "At first, I was highly skeptical that this could be the explanation. But if you have seemingly unlikely effects then the proof needs to be much stronger - and that is why we have done so many...

Swarm Satellites Precise Sense Of Magnetism
2014-05-08 03:26:09

ESA Although they were launched only five months ago, ESA’s trio of Swarm satellites are already delivering results with a precision that took earlier missions 10 years to achieve. Engineers have spent the last five months commissioning the identical satellites and carefully guiding them into their orbits to provide the crucial measurements that will unravel the mysteries of Earth’s magnetic field. Swarm has a challenging task ahead. Together, the satellites will measure and...

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Neutron stars – also called pulsars for the way they send pulses of light across the Universe due to their high spin rates – are some of the most dynamic objects in the Universe, characterized by incredibly compact dimensions, focused beams of radiation, and incredible surface gravity. Additionally, these rapid rotators possess the strongest magnetic fields known to man – billions of times more powerful than anything ever...

Study presents latest theoretical advances on the dynamics of highly sensitive magnetometers Theoretical physicists are currently exploring the dynamics of a very unusual kind of device called a SQUID. This Superconducting Quantum Interference Device is a highly sensitive magnetometer used to measure extremely subtle magnetic fields. It is made of two thin regions of insulating material that separate two superconductors – referred to as Josephson junctions – placed in parallel into a...

Research from North Carolina State University finds that impurities can hurt performance – or possibly provide benefits – in a key superconductive material that is expected to find use in a host of applications, including future particle colliders. The size of the impurities determines whether they help or hinder the material’s performance. At issue is a superconductive material called bismuth strontium calcium copper oxide (Bi2212). A superconductor is a material that can carry...

What's so 'super' about this superfluid Atomtronics is an emerging technology whereby physicists use ensembles of atoms to build analogs to electronic circuit elements. Modern electronics relies on utilizing the charge properties of the electron. Using lasers and magnetic fields, atomic systems can be engineered to have behavior analogous to that of electrons, making them an exciting platform for studying and generating alternatives to charge-based electronics. Using a superfluid...
