Researchers capture wasted heat, use it to power devices
(Phys.org) —Imagine how much you could save on your electricity bill if you could use the excess heat your computer generates to actually power the machine. Researchers at the UCLA Henry Samueli School ...
Researchers suggest gas cloud could reveal black holes near center of Milky Way galaxy
Researchers devise means to combine scanning tunneling microscopy and infrared spectroscopy
Diamond defect boosts quantum technology
New research shows that a remarkable defect in synthetic diamond produced by chemical vapor deposition allows researchers to measure, witness, and potentially manipulate electrons in a manner that could lead ...
High glucose levels could impair ferroelectricity in body's connective tissues
High sugar levels in the body come at a cost to health. New research suggests that more sugar in the body could damage the elastic proteins that help us breathe and pump blood. The findings could have health ...
New nanoscale cooling element works in electrical insulators as well
(Phys.org) —Researchers from the FOM Foundation, the University of Groningen, Delft University of Technology and Tohoku University in Japan have designed a miniscule cooling element that uses spin waves ...
Calculating conditions at the birth of the universe
(Phys.org) —Using a calculation originally proposed seven years ago to be performed on a petaflop computer, Lawrence Livermore researchers computed conditions that simulate the birth of the universe.
Cosmic turbulences result in star and black hole formation
Just how stars and black holes in the Universe are able to form from rotating matter is one of the big questions of astrophysics. What we do know is that magnetic fields figure prominently into the picture. ...
