Whether the object of attention is a novel aspect of the universe or an enigmatic and distant colleague, listening is key to nearly any effort to seek understanding. And not just with your ears. Spectroscopy, the study of ...
The Large Area Picosecond Photodetector (LAPPD) collaboration has developed big detectors that push the timing envelope, measuring the speed of particles with a precision down to trillionths of a second.
(Phys.org) -- An air sampler the size of an ear plug is expected to cheaply and easily collect atmospheric samples to improve computer climate models.
A novel rotary actuator provides greater torque, accuracy, and speed.
