A fabricated metasurface that leads to improved antenna performance may well represent the first demonstrated practical application for invisibility cloaks, according to Penn State researchers.
Plasmonic chains act like polymers: Repeating patterns dictate optical properties of nanoparticle arrays
(Phys.org) -- New research at Rice University that seeks to establish points of reference between plasmonic particles and polymers might lead to smaller computer chips, better antennae and improvements in optical computing.
A loss mechanism that has not been an issue in previous mobile handset antennas will become important for global 4G roaming, according to results of experiments carried out in Aalborg, Denmark.
(PhysOrg.com) -- A key technical challenge of the joint ESANASA LISA mission has been solved: how to maintain precise pointing of a laser beam across five million km of space.
Swissto12 -- an EPFL spin-off -- could help boost the performance of detection systems and create new antennas for mobile telephony and on-board satellite systems thanks to an innovative transmission system that takes advantage ...
Mobile money may seem like a hot concept, but consumers aren't warming to it. At the world's largest cellphone trade show, here in Barcelona this week, the 70,000 attendees are encouraged to use their cellphones —instead ...
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has snapped the best ever image of the Antennae Galaxies. Hubble has released images of these stunning galaxies twice before, once using observations from its Wide Field and Planetary Camera ...
(Phys.org) —Speed is blinding. Just ask the tiger beetle, the fastest insect its size. Though predatory tiger beetles have excellent sight, when they chase prey, they run so fast they can no longer see where they are going.
(Phys.org) —Novel research shows damage to fine hairs on ants' antennae's hinders the ability to determine who is a nest mate and who is a threat to the colony.
If there's a lesson I've learned from my cord-cutting experiments, it's that there are many types of over-the-air TV antennas, and finding the right one can be a challenge.
