With its 2160 liters of liquid helium about to run out, the Herschel Space Observatory will, by the end of March, become just another piece of space junk. In January´s Physics World, Steve Eales, a University of Cardiff astronomer who leads one of the telescope´s largest surveys, explains how this space facility has advanced our understanding of star and galaxy formation. Submillimeter wavelength astronomy -- the kind of astronomy that the European Space Agency´s Herschel...

New Terahertz Chips For New Devices
2012-12-10 19:11:57

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A new set of microchips designed at the California Institute of Technology pave the way for a new generation of devices. The chips created by the Caltech engineers generate and radiate high-frequency electromagnetic waves known as terahertz (THz). These waves fall between microwaves and far-infrared radiation and are able to penetrate materials without damaging them, unlike X-rays. The new microchips could be incorporated...

Scientists employ a powerful laser to breathe new life into an old technology for studying atomic-level structures A multi-university team has employed a high-powered laser to dramatically improve one of the tools scientists use to study the world at the atomic level. The team was able to use their amped-up electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectrometer to study the electron spin of free radicals and nitrogen atoms trapped inside a diamond. The improvement will pull back the veil...

Small, affordable high-frequency chips will have broad applications in detection technology, TAU researcher says With homeland security on high alert, screening systems to search for concealed weapons are crucial pieces of equipment. But these systems are often prohibitively expensive, putting them out of reach for public spaces such as train and bus stations, stadiums, or malls, where they could be beneficial. Now Dr. Eran Socher of Tel Aviv University's Faculty of Engineering is...

Japanese researchers have broken a world record for the fastest wireless data transmission by using the terahertz band. Their achieved speed was up to 20 times faster than our normal Wi-Fi speeds. By using the yet uncharted terahertz band, the researchers hope to open up a new level of spectrum to data hungry consumers. Published in Electronics Letters, the research suggests this band, referred to as “T-Ray,” could offer just the bandwidth we´ve been looking for in data...

Radio signals reach pilots on board an aircraft through the “radar dome“, the rounded nose of the aircraft. But if errors occur during the production of this “nose“, — tiny foreign particles, drops of water or air bubbles — this can impede radio traffic. In the future, a non-destructive testing system will identify just such imperfections during production. Researchers will be presenting the new testing system at the Control trade fair, May 8-11 in...


Word of the Day
out-herod
  • In the phrase to out-herod Herod, to be more violent than Herod (as represented in the old mystery plays); hence, to exceed in any excess of evil.
Herod refers to 'Herod the Great,' a Roman client king and 'a madman who murdered his own family and a great many rabbis.' According to the OED, the term is 'chiefly with allusion to Shakespeare's use' in Hamlet.
