The Puzzle Of Quantum Reality

    But if quantum physics really applies at all scales, what’s the true answer to the measurement problem? What’s actually going on in the quantum world? Historically, the standard answer was to say that there is no measurement problem, because it’s meaningless to ask what’s going on when nobody’s looking.

    Kagome Metal: New Exotic Quantum Material Developed By Scientists

    Quantum mechanics is a fundamental theory that describes nature at the very smallest scales of atoms and subatomic particles. At such scales, objects display some very bizarre properties—for example, having the characteristics of a wave and a particle at the same time.

    Breakthrough To Wafer Scale Quantum Processors Using Silicon Isotope And Eventually Trillions Of Qubits

    “To progress towards a practical and useful quantum processor, it is now essential to scale up the qubit,” said Louis Hutin, a research engineer in CEA-Leti’s Silicon Components Division. “This development will have to address variability, reproducibility and electrostatic control quality for elementary quantum bricks, as is done routinely for standard microprocessors.”

    Scientists Separate Atoms With Smallest Sieve Ever

    Various processes in nuclear, medical and other research fields call for the separation of isotopes, a typically energy-intensive task. From the perspective of classical physics, hydrogen isotopes appear identical. But when their quantum nature is considered, their wave signatures are distinct.

    Lithium Metal Batteries Could Triple EV Ranges, And They’re Getting Closer

    Lithium is considered the best available battery anode material because it carries the highest theoretical capacity and lowest electrochemical potential of all known candidate elements. But the material has several drawbacks. Repeated charge and discharge cycles can cause microscopic structural changes that lead to internal short circuits, or merely to reduced battery life.

    New design produces true lithium-air battery 750 charge/discharge cycles

    A very wise friend of mine told me  As you have often noted, these better battery papers appear weekly. Then we never hear of them again because of an engineering problem, or a toxic/expensive ingredient. Lets hope this story pans out as they started from the ground...

    Site Downtime

    The site has been experiencing constant denial of service and brute force attacks. We apologize for any downtime this may have caused. We are working hard to resolve the issue.....tracing the source and even switching hosts. We hope to have things stable shortly.  --...

    First Bitcoin Mining Ban in the US

    I have written about why bitcoin will be eventually doomed as it requires an ever increasing amount of energy to sustain its operations. Now people in communities are starting to wake up and miners are no longer to be given a free ride for cheap electricity....

    aqueous organic redox flow batteries

    Utah State University chemists' efforts to develop alternative battery technology solutions are advancing and recent findings are highlighted in a renowned, international chemistry journal. Aqueous organic redox flow batteries Tianbiao Liu, assistant professor in...

    Indians Produce Boron Nanosheets As Thin As Graphene

    Researchers across the world have been trying to make such boron cousins of graphene. The technique developed by the research team at IIT Gandhinagar is not only inexpensive and simple in design, but also results in an aqueous colloid of these nanosheets, which means that a drop of water from this colloid would contain thousands of nanosheets swimming like micro-carpets.

    Substance Used In Decades Of Chemistry Calculations Does Not Actually Exist

    The scientists attempted to find evidence for the existence of S2 in such water-based solutions—as predicted by accepted chemistry calculations—using an advanced piece of equipment known at UWA known as a Raman spectrometer. This incredibly sensitive instrument is designed to detect the bonds between chemicals.

    Record-Breaking Nuclear Fusion Has Been Achieved On A Mini Scale Using Laser-Heated Nanowires

    They fired laser pulses at tiny, invisible wires—known as nanowires—which instantly created hot and dense plasma—one of the four fundamental states of matter that does not occur freely on Earth. This plasma created a chain reaction of fusion events

    Turbocharging fuel cells with a multifunctional catalyst

    Note from mark: This could be a real game changer, making fuel cell technology  more viable. Batteries have raced ahead of fuel cell technology for energy storage in recent years but this could restore the balance or make a leap forward. Many automotive manufacturers...

    Research gets closer to revolutionary battery: Hydrogen-bromine flow battery

    Hi all I am in Taiwan today, spent a few days in China. Left my computer power cord in the Philippines lol. Can post more stories now. The following story grabbed my attention as the photo looked like the old HHO generators I once built and many others used. Advanced...

    Sewing Atomic Lattices Seamlessly Together – Scientists Have Revealed A Technique

    The atomic seams are so tight, in fact, that when they looked up close using scanning electron microscopes, they saw that the larger of the two materials puckers a little around the joint.

    Game-Changing Yanmar 50 HP Turbo Diesel Outboard Motor Begins Production

    The Yanmar Dtorque 111 is lighter and more compact than petrol engines of similar capacity, has double the engine life, is much smoother, offers much better fuel consumption and running costs, produces significantly less toxic emissions, here is a chance to push diesel engines into use in polluted areas

    A Potential New And Easy Way To Make Attosecond Laser Pulses: Focus a laser on ordinary glass

    “With today’s methods, you have to shine the laser beam through a special gas jet or through a crystal that has to be grown with great care at ultra-cold temperatures,” said Yong Sing You, a postdoctoral researcher at PULSE and lead author of the study. “But this is exciting because you can use everyday glass, which is cheap and easily available, at room temperature. If you were to put your eyeglasses into the experiment, it would still work, and it would not even damage the glasses.”
