Scientists Make Time Disappear

Physicists working with the support from the US government said on Wednesday they had devised a “time cloak” that can make time disappear, albeit briefly. The device manipulates the flow of light in such a way that an event cannot be seen for about 40 trillionths of a second -- or 40 picoseconds -- by speeding up and slowing down different parts of a light beam. The different parts of the light beam were then re-assembled, so that any observers could not detect what happened...

Corundum is the crystalline form of aluminium oxide and one of the rock-forming minerals. Corundum is naturally clear, but can have different colors when impurities are added. Transparent specimens are used as gems, called ruby if red, while all other colors are called sapphire. The word corundum comes from the Hindi kurand. The oxygen atoms in corundum are arranged in a hexagonal close-packing, with the smaller aluminium atoms occupying 2/3 of the octahedral gaps. The coordination of the...

Electromagnetic Spectrum -- The electromagnetic spectrum describes the various types of electromagnetic radiation based on their wavelengths. Radio, representing wavelengths from a few feet to well over a mile, is at one end of the spectrum. Gamma ray radiation is at the other end: the wavelength of the harder types is so short, in the subatomic range, that we do not have instruments capable of directly measuring it. While the above classification scheme is generally accurate, in...
