Technische Universitaet Muenchen Neutron scattering experiment resolves a contentious superconducting issue Below a specific transition temperature superconductors transmit electrical current nearly loss-free. For the best of the so-called high-temperature superconductors, this temperature lies around -180 °C – a temperature that can be achieved by cooling with liquid nitrogen. The location of atomic nuclei and binding electrons in a material is determined by its crystal...

Bungajungle out of Chicago launches Kickstarter to the most beautiful and impeccably designed phone and tablet mounts ever seen. Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 25, 2014 A new Kickstarter project by Bungajungle out of Chicago a driver safety hands free phone holders. According the national safety council cell phone use causes 1 in 4 accidents. To help improve driver safety Bungajungle has created an attractive phone holder mount for automobiles. The products are called first ever Neutron A and...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online In order to better understand what powers solar flares, NASA officials announced on Thursday that they were turning to the MESSENGER spacecraft orbiting Mercury in order to get a closer look at these intense bursts of radiation resulting from sunspot-related magnetic energy release. As the US space agency explained, it can be difficult understanding some of the processes on the sun when you are forced to rely solely upon the...

Experiments Performed At COSY Accelerator Confirm Exotic Particle
2014-06-09 03:31:37

Forschungszentrum Jülich For decades, physicists have searched in vain for exotic bound states comprising more than three quarks. Experiments performed at Jülich’s accelerator COSY have now shown that, in fact, such complex particles do exist in nature. This discovery by the WASA-at-COSY collaboration has been published in the journal Physical Review Letters. The measurements confirm results from 2011, when the more than 120 scientists from eight countries discovered for the first...

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...

Scientists Use Neutrons To Search For Dark Energy
2014-04-17 10:13:42

Vienna University of Technology With neutrons, scientists can now look for dark energy in the lab All the particles we know to exist make up only about five per cent of the mass and energy of the universe. The rest – "Dark Matter" and "Dark Energy" – remains mysterious. A European collaboration led by researchers from the Vienna University of Technology has now carried out extremely sensitive measurements of gravitational effects at very small distances at the Institut Laue-Langevin...

New Gel Promotes Bone Growth On Implants Used In Surgical Procedures
2014-03-31 14:11:46

Uppsala University A research group at Uppsala University, Sweden has developed a new responsive coating for implants used in surgery to improve their integration into bone and to prevent rejection. Neutron scattering experiments at the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble, France have shown how a protein that promotes bone growth binds to this surface and can be released in a controlled way. Orthopedic and dental implants must last for many years. Success for these surgical...

Oxygen’s Different Shapes Described By Researchers
2014-03-14 14:31:07

North Carolina State University Oxygen-16, one of the key elements of life on earth, is produced by a series of reactions inside of red giant stars. Now a team of physicists, including one from North Carolina State University, has revealed how the element’s nuclear shape changes depending on its state, even though other attributes such as spin and parity don’t appear to differ. Their findings may shed light on how oxygen is produced. Carbon and oxygen are formed when helium burns...

X-ray Burster -- X-ray bursters are a class of binary stars which are luminous in X-rays. They contain a neutron star and a low-mass companion star. The companion fills its Roche lobe and therefore the neutron star is accreting matter from it. The inflowing gas forms an accretion disk around the neutron star. Sometimes X-ray bursters show a sudden increase in their X-ray luminosity, called X-ray burst. All properties of the X-ray bursts can be explained assuming that they result from...
