Breaking the Planck's law, at the nanoscale
(PhysOrg.com) -- A well-established physical law describes the transfer of heat between two objects, but some physicists have long predicted that the law should break down when the objects are very close together. ...
Researchers study salt's potential to store energy
(PhysOrg.com) -- When the wind blows, it blows — sometimes to a fault. The same is true for the sun: It can beat down relentlessly, scorching everything — and everyone-beneath its intense rays.
