New Technique Could Reveal High Detail Of Earth's Composition
2013-02-22 10:50:16

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In a new study recently published in the journal Science, a research team from Amherst College and The University of Texas at Austin has described a new technique that might one day reveal the composition and characteristics of the deep Earth in never before seen detail. There's just a tiny little hitch in the new technique. It relies on a fifth force of nature that has not yet been detected. Current physics theories hold that there...

Quantum Spin Liquid Is A New State Of Magnetism
2012-12-21 09:38:33

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online While experts had previously only confirmed the existence of two states of magnetism, experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) report that they have been able to experimentally demonstrate the existence of a third kind. The MIT researchers have dubbed the new state a quantum spin liquid (QSL), and they describe their findings in this week's edition of the journal Nature. It joins ferromagnetism (the simple form...

While some theoretical physicists make predictions about astrophysics and the behavior of stars and galaxies, others work in the realm of the very small, which includes quantum physics. Such is the case at UC Santa Barbara, where theoretical physicists at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP) cover the range of questions in physics. Recently, theoretical physicists at KITP have made important strides in studying a concept in quantum physics called quantum entanglement, in...

New research has demonstrated a way to make bismuth electrons and nuclei work together as qubits in a quantum computer. The discovery, published in Nature Materials, takes us a key step further to creating practical quantum computing which could tackle complex programs that would otherwise take the lifetime of the universe to finish. The collaboration partners are based in the University of Warwick, UCL, ETH Zurich and the USA Sandia National Labs. Information on our normal computers...

A High-Speed Digital Storage Called Spintronics
2012-08-29 14:54:30

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The next generation of high-speed digital devices might be just a spin away. Every generation of digital electronics is smaller than the one before. Miniaturization is the way of the world, with each successive round of circuitry requiring less space and energy to perform the same tasks. No matter how small or how fast they get, today's digital technology has a functional limit. Magnetically stored digital information becomes...

A gyroscope uses the principles of conservation and angular momentum to measure and maintain orientation. The mechanical gyroscope is a spinning wheel or disk whose axle is free to take any orientation. The gyroscope's high rate of spin allows for large angular momentum which makes the orientation changes much more responsive to a given external torque. There is also the electronic, microchip-packaged MEMS gyroscope, solid state ring laser and fiber optic gyroscope, as well as the extremely...
