Quantum Dots Used To Generate Electricity From Waste Heat
2013-02-14 14:46:17

University of Rochester A new type of nanoscale engine has been proposed that would use quantum dots to generate electricity from waste heat, potentially making microcircuits more efficient. "The system is really a simple one, which exploits certain properties of quantum dots to harvest heat," Professor Andrew Jordan of the University of Rochester said. "Despite this simplicity, the power it could generate is still larger than any other nanoengine that has been considered until now."...

New Atomic Gas Goes Below Absolute Zero
2013-01-05 06:05:41

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online People take it for granted in most northern climes the temperatures will drop below zero at some point during the winter. What is normal in nature is impossible in physics: a minus temperature. Minus temperatures are only surprising on the Celsius scale during the summer. On the Kelvin, or absolute temperature scale used by physicists, it is impossible to go below zero. At least, it is impossible to get colder than zero Kelvin....

Pinocchio Effect Proven Through Thermography
2012-12-04 05:36:28

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A breakthrough new study from the University of Granada has confirmed that Geppetto was right when he told Pinocchio that lying affects your nose, he was just wrong about how. The new study reveals that when a person lies, they suffer a "Pinocchio effect" — an increase in the temperature around the nose and in the orbital muscle in the inner corner of the eye. They also found that when a person performs a considerable mental...
