New Class of Light-Bending Material Spun With DNA and Gold Nanoparticles Can Achieve First Real-Life Invisibility Cloak

    The technique would be used to create metamaterials, meaning materials that don’t exist in nature. But nature itself still contains all kinds of stuff made from particles that can control their optic qualities. Cloaking might be possible.

    Russian And UK And Physicists Develop Superconducting Quantum State Detectors

    The notion of a wave function refers to a way of describing quantum objects, including individual particles and more complex systems. A wave function assigns a value called probability amplitude to all points in space. The terms “wave” and “amplitude” imply that the objects described by wave functions behave much like waves.

    How Fast Can Quantum Computers Get? Quantum Physics

    Under the laws of classical physics, there are theoretical limits to these processes. But they are unrealistically high: For instance, we know that a car can never go faster than the speed of light. And no matter how much fuel is on the planet, or how much roadway or how strong the construction methods, no car will get close to going even 10 percent of the speed of light.

    Particle Physics: ‘Mind-Bending’ Negative Mass Device Reveals New Way To Create Lasers

    The researchers outfitted the microcavity with a semiconductor made from two chemical elements, one that is metallic and one that is not. This particular semiconductor was about the width of an atom, which is more than a million times smaller than a human hair.

    Researchers Find A New Approach For Producing Hydrogen Gas Which Can Be Used To Develop Economical Green Fuel

    ydrogen gas generated from various organic transformations indicated the successful performance of the new catalyst. “After completion of the reaction, the catalyst can be recovered to reuse for further reactions, simply by using a magnet,” Garima Jaiswal, a member of the research team, told India Science Wire.

    New Rechargeable Batteries That Use Iron Instead Of Cobalt Could Be A Game Changer For Electric Cars

    It would be a dull month if a new rechargeable battery project didn’t make headlines amid all the excitement surrounding electric cars. This month’s indisputable winner is the lithium-ion battery that replaces cobalt with iron, and-rather surprisingly-works, at least according to the people who came up with the idea.

    Fisker’s Luxury Electric Car Might Be A Tesla Killer

    Fisker has launched its Emotion electric luxury saloon at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas – and there’s a vegan option.  The long-awaited Tesla rival, with eye-catching looks and dramatic ‘butterfly’ doors, has a non-animal interior available for those who don’t want the premium leather interior of the show car.

    Intel Has 49 Qubit Superconducting Quantum Chip And A Neuromorphic Chip

    CEO Brian Krzanich calling it a major breakthrough in quantum computing and the next step to quantum supremacy (when quantum computers are faster than classical computers).  Intel has a neuromorphic computing chip.

    Triple Meltdown: How So Many Researchers Found A 20-Year-Old Chip Flaw At The Same Time

    “It was really, really scary,” Gruss says. “You don’t expect your private conversations to come out of a program with no permissions at all to access that data.” You thought you computer software to protect your computer could do the job?

    The Quantum Computing Apocalypse Is Imminent

    Taking advantage of the physical “spin” of quantum elements, a quantum computer will be able to process simultaneously the same data in different ways, enabling it to make projections and analyses much more quickly and efficiently than is now possible. Sppeds of computing will blast out of sight, hackeers will take advantage of this. How do we protect?

    A fossil fuel technology that doesn’t pollute

    Alaskan microgrids offer energy resilience and independence

    Microgrids offer an enticing approach for local, sustainable energy generation by building flexibility into existing electrical grids Communities rely on microgrids The electrical grid in the contiguous United States is a behemoth of interconnected systems. If one...

    Thermoelectric power generation at room temperature: Coming soon?

    Happy New Year. I had a break to focus on family and am still frustrated with posting to this site. However I will do so as I do have many friends ( a few foes ) and the greatest respect for Simon and many of our commentators. I will have time latter in the month when...

    Physics: Record-Breaking Nanochip Reaches One-Thousandth of a Degree From Absolute Zero, ‘Magic’ Quantum Threshold

    “The combination of cooling systems allowed us to cool our chip down to below 3 millikelvin, and we are optimistic than we can use the same method to reach the magic 1 millikelvin limit,” Dominik Zumbühl, a physicist at the University of Basel, said in the press release.
