NANOTECH

NANOTECH

When did time begin? Did our universe burst forth in explosive space/time creation. The Big Bang, until recently, was our best shot at explaining the observable cosmos. Still, even little kids ask, “if time...

Einstein was wrong about at least one thing: There are, in fact, "spooky actions at a distance," as now proven by researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Einstein used that term...

Common glass optical lenses produce beautiful photos, often with exquisite detail

New techniques for building microelectromechanical systems show promise. CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Microelectromechanical systems — or MEMS — were a $12 billion business in 2014. But that market is dominated by just a handful of devices,...

Sep. 11, 2013 — An experimental demonstration of light scattering controlled by silicon nanoparticles augurs well for the development of integrated optical circuits. courtesy ScienceDaily - Optical fibers are now delivering ultrafast internet connections to homes...
Shrinking materials

Most materials swell when they warm, and shrink when they cool. But UConn physicist Jason Hancock has been investigating a substance that responds in reverse: it shrinks when it warms. Although thermal expansion, and the...

Scientists have successfully been able to transfer the experience from furnace to laboratory while synthesizing nanoscale materials using simple and highly efficient flame technology. This "baking" of nanostructures has already been a great success...
semiconductors

Our modern world is based on semiconductors. In addition to your computer, cellphones, and digital cameras, semiconductors are a critical component of a growing number of devices. Think of the high-efficiency LED lights you...
Nanotech

A team of MIT researchers has for the first time demonstrated a device based on a method that enables solar cells to break through a theoretically predicted ceiling on how much sunlight they can...

Summary: Turning Electricity Into Light, Using Graphene When an airplane begins to move faster than the speed of sound, it creates a shockwave that produces a well-known “boom” of sound. Now, researchers at MIT and...

Emily S Finn, Yale University Each of us is unique, with our own strengths, weaknesses and idiosyncrasies. While this is a truism everyone grasps intuitively, it’s been difficult to determine if and how this individuality...
