The Web Will Soon Be A Little Safer With The Approval Of This New Security Standard

    The internet is a delicate machine and changes to its fundamental parts — such as how a client and server establish a secure, encrypted connection — must be made very, very carefully.

    General Electric Energy Storage Offering Built On Speed

    Developers are increasingly looking for plug-and-play options from manufacturers, whether they’re building solar, wind, or energy storage. And manufacturers are adapting to the market by serving more turnkey solutions and doing less project development themselves.

    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...

    Plastic to Fuel (and gas)

       Chitra Thiyagarajan : Convert Plastic Waste to a Fuel There are several steps towards energy independence. While we are striving to create, deploy renewable energy devices and systems, there is a lot of merit in utilizing waste around us. By turning waste plastic...
