Japanese researchers have been immersing iron-based compounds in hot alcoholic beverages such as red wine, sake and shochu to induce superconductivity.
In a timely review paper, scientists from Japan, Germany, and Spain provide a highly relevant overview of the history, physical interpretation and applications of plasmons in metallic nanostructures. (PRWeb UK) January 11, 2011 Tadaaki Nagao at the International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA), National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) and colleagues in Germany and Spain present a review on plasmons in metallic nanomaterials.
Rice physicist Junichiro Kono and his team have been studying the Aharonov-Bohm effect -- the interaction between electrically charged particles and magnetic fields -- and how it relates to carbon nanotubes.
Science and Technology of Advanced Materials is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published bimonthly by the Institute of Physics, which also prints the journal. Prior to 2008, this journal was published by Elsevier. Printed volumes of this journal are, as of 2008, published free of charge by the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) and the Institute of Physics. The journal was established in 2000. The journal covers all aspects of materials science, including theoretical...
- A pivoted catch designed to fall into a notch on a ratchet wheel so as to allow movement in only one direction (e.g. on a windlass or in a clock mechanism), or alternatively to move the wheel in one direction.
