Microscopic, bottle-like structures with corks that melt at precisely-controlled temperatures could potentially release drugs inside the body or fragrances onto the skin, according to a recently published study. Typical drug delivery systems act more like sponges than bottles. For example, drugs are absorbed into polymer particles and then allowed to diffuse out over time. The researchers hope that the new system may allow for greater control of drug delivery. Cargo would stay inside the...

A new, highly-accurate temperature sensor could save manufacturers millions in maintenance costs, lower fuel consumption, and prolong the lifespan of jet engines, nuclear reactors and other types of large gas turbine engines. A temperature sensor developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge could improve the efficiency, control and safety of high-temperature engines. The sensor minimizes drift –degradation of the sensor which results in faulty temperature readings and reduces...

Physics That Connect The Classical Temperature To The Quantum World
2013-09-09 12:00:32

Vienna University of Technology How does a classical temperature form in the quantum world? An experiment at the Vienna University of Technology has directly observed the emergence and the spreading of a temperature in a quantum system. Remarkably, the quantum properties are lost, even though the quantum system is completely isolated and not connected to the outside world. The experimental results are being published in this week’s issue of “Nature Physics”. Quantum and Classical...

Littman Bros Lighting is proud to support Fanimation’s efforts to reduce energy consumption and raise awareness about the energy and cost saving benefits of ceiling fans with the initiation of the first annual National Ceiling Fan Day (“NCFD”). On September 18, Fanimation is encouraging Americans to join them in the fight to reduce energy consumption by turning off central cooling systems and relying on ceiling, floor and desk fans to keep cool. (PRWEB) August 27, 2013 According to...

Researchers at Aalto University and the University of Tokyo have succeeded for the first time in experimentally measuring a probability distribution for entropy production of electrons. Entropy production means an increase in disorder when electrons are moved individually between two microscopic conductors of differing temperatures. The researchers also showed that a connection prevails between two definitions of entropy that have been used. The result is significant for the design of...
