Scientists have demonstrated for the first time how electrons are transported from a superconductor through a quantum dot into a metal with normal conductivity. This transport process through a quantum dot had already been calculated theoretically in the nineties, but scientists have now succeeded in proving the theory with measurements.
The Scientific Systems, Inc. (SSI) economical MX Class Pump consists of single-headed, positive displacement piston pumps incorporating additional features for challenging applications. With pressure capability up to 5,000 psi, the MX Class can be used in both analytical and small-scale preparative HPLC separations. Further applications include demanding metering and dispensing, as well as s...
Astronomers from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics have detected the galaxy’s heartbeat, a series of thousands of stellar pulses. The new measurements provide scientists with a new way for determining a galaxy’s age.
For the first time in the world, using the newly installed "Plasma Simulator" we have simulated deuterium plasma turbulence in the Large Helical Device (LHD). From this result, we have clarified that the energy confinement in a deuterium plasma is improved in comparison to a hydrogen plasma.
In a study to be published the week of Nov. 16 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the team used an infrared laser to cool water by about 36 degrees Fahrenheit -- a major breakthrough in the field.
Pioneering new research could pave the way for miniaturized optical circuits and increased internet speeds, by helping accelerate the 'graphene revolution'.
Torrey Pines Scientific has introduced its EchoTherm Series of remotely controlled heating and chilling dry baths Models RHB20 and RIC20. They are for use in robotic systems and in fume hoods or environmental chambers where remote control is necessary. Control is by computer or the Torrey Pines Scientific MIC20 Remote Terminal via their RS232 I/O ports.
With recent advances in technology, AR is increasingly bleeding into human physical reality. No longer is it a whimsical fancy of science fiction. As companies continue funneling money into AR pursuits, policymakers and technologists need to work together in order to facilitate a smooth transition into an AR-laden world.
Compared to birds and insects, bats have heavy wings for their body size. Those comparatively cumbersome flappers might seem a detriment to maneuverability, but new research shows that bats' extra wing mass makes possible a quintessential bit of aerobatics: the ability to land upside down.
Though they're not quite ready for boarding a lá "Fantastic Voyage," nanoscale submarines created at Rice University are proving themselves seaworthy. Each of the single-molecule, 244-atom submersibles built in the Rice lab of chemist James Tour has a motor powered by ultraviolet light. With each full revolution, the motor's tail-like propeller moves the sub forward 18 nanometers.
MIT researchers have developed a new algorithm that vastly reduces the computation of virtually any computational model. The algorithm may be thought of as a shrinking bull’s-eye that, over several runs of a model, and in combination with some relevant data points, incrementally narrows in on its target: a probability distribution of values for each unknown parameter.
A team of Australian engineers has proven -- with the highest score ever obtained -- that a quantum version of computer code can be written, and manipulated, using two quantum bits in a silicon microchip.
Asynt in conjunction with Biochromato have developed the DrySyn Spiral Evaporator which enables scientists to evaporate tubes directly in DrySyn synthesis blocks up to 12 samples at a time. Many laboratories use DrySyn heating blocks to perform syntheses in parallel in flasks, tubes and vials.
A suspect sits in a police interrogation room. The cops are positive their suspect is lying, but he isn’t breaking under pressure. Hope is not lost- the officers have another tool in their arsenal. Embedded in their video camera array is a micro-expression analysis system capable of picking up the slightest facial cues.
Between two and three children out of every 100 suffer from amblyopia, a visual impairment characterized by a reduction in one eye’s vision, as it fails to work properly with the brain. There are two common treatments, patching and eye drops.
