vortex multiplication in a quantum fluid
2014-03-26 03:00:39

University of Cambridge Researchers have developed a new mathematical framework capable of describing motions in superfluids – low temperature fluids that exhibit classical as well as quantum behavior. The framework was used to lift the veil of mystery surrounding strange objects in superfluid helium (detected ten years ago at Brown University). The study, conducted by an international collaboration of researchers from the UK, Russia and France is published today in the journal...

Hydrogen Atoms

International School of Advanced Studies (SISSA) A simulation to observe how hydrogen behaves at very high pressures Some experiments are really difficult to perform in practice. To gain a detailed understanding of the behavior of molecular hydrogen (H2), for example, we would have to produce such high pressures as those occurring within the core of gaseous planets like Jupiter and Saturn or inside stars. If such conditions cannot be created, an alternative method is to simulate them on...

Recovering valuable substances from wastewater
2014-03-26 03:00:15

Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft Phosphorus can be found in fertilizers, drinks and detergents. It accumulates in waterways and pollutes them. For this reason the German Phosphorus Platform has the goal to recover this valuable, but at the same time, harmful element from water. How this can be done will be shown by researchers at the Hannover Trade Fair / IndustrialGreenTec from April 7 – 11 in Hannover (hall 6, booth J18) where visitors can try out the method for themselves. Not only plants,...

carbon nanofibers using ambient air
2014-03-26 03:00:35

Matt Shipman, North Carolina State University Researchers from North Carolina State University have demonstrated that vertically aligned carbon nanofibers (VACNFs) can be manufactured using ambient air, making the manufacturing process safer and less expensive. VACNFs hold promise for use in gene-delivery tools, sensors, batteries and other technologies. Conventional techniques for creating VACNFs rely on the use of ammonia gas, which is toxic. And while ammonia gas is not expensive,...

A University of Maryland research team provides visual evidence confirming computer simulations of a special type of ripple that dissipates energy in extremely cold liquid helium. The research could lead to advances in superconductors. College Park, MD (PRWEB) March 24, 2014 Draining the water from a bathtub causes a spinning tornado to appear. The downward flow of water into the drain causes the water to rotate, and as the rotation speeds up, a vortex forms that obeys the laws of...

Caribbean Pine, Pinus caribaea
2014-04-18 08:11:48

Caribbean pine (Pinus caribaea) is native to Central America, Cuba, the Bahamas as well as the Turks and Caicos Islands. The Caribbean pine also grows in Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Jamaica, Colombia, South Africa and China where they were introduced by foresters. This pine often forms pure stands but can be found growing mixed in with oaks and other pines as long as the soil is well drained and acidic. The Caribbean pine grows in forest of the lowlands up to about 2,297 feet but can...

Acid Rain
2013-04-01 10:21:17

Acid rain is any form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, meaning that is possesses high levels of hydrogen ions. It can have harmful effects on aquatic animals, plants, and infrastructure. Acid rain is caused by emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, which react with the water molecules within the atmosphere to produce acids. Nitrogen oxides can be produced naturally by lightening strikes. Sulfur dioxide can be produced naturally by volcanic eruptions. The chemicals that are...

Physics
2014-01-12 00:00:00

Physics is a natural science involving the study of matter and its motion through space-time, along with related concepts such as energy and force. On a broader scale, it also involves the general analysis of nature, conducted in order to understand how the universe behaves. Physics is one of the oldest academic disciplines, perhaps the oldest through its inclusion of astronomy. Physics was part of natural philosophy until the Scientific Revolution in the 16th century, when the natural...

Aerosol spray is a dispensing system that creates an aerosol mist of liquid particles. The liquid is usually contained in a bottle under liquid pressure that is released when the valve is opened. As the gas in the can expands to drive out the liquid some of the propellant evaporates to maintain an even pressure. Erick Rotheim invented the first aerosol spray can in 1926. Lyle Goodhue and William Sullivan were the first to put it to good use and are credited as the inventors of the modern...

Fermium is a synthetic, radioactive metallic element. It has the symbol Fm and atomic number 100. It is an element in the actinide series. It is named after nuclear physicist Enrico Fermi. Fermium became the eighth transuranic (having an atomic number greater than 92) element discovered. It was first discovered in 1952 by a team of scientists led by Albert Ghiorso. They found fermium-255 in debris of the first hydrogen bomb explosion from Operation Ivy. Fermium-255 was created when...
