Landmark study proves that magnets can control heat and sound
Researchers at The Ohio State University have discovered how to control heat with a magnetic field.
A new way to control information by mixing light and sound
For once, slower is better in a new piece of technology.
'Nano-earthquakes' hold key to smarter electronics
The performance of mobile phone cameras and solar cells could be boosted by "nano-earthquakes", researchers have found.
Have researchers discovered the sound of the stars?
A chance discovery by a team of researchers, including a University of York scientist, has provided experimental evidence that stars may generate sound.
Research team develops acoustic topological insulator idea to allow for hiding from sonar
Mission studies the Sun in soft X-rays
At any given moment, our sun emits a range of light waves far more expansive than what our eyes alone can see: from visible light to extreme ultraviolet to soft and hard X-rays. Different wavelengths can ...
Electron spins controlled using sound waves
The ability to control the intrinsic angular momentum of individual electrons – their "spins" – could lead to a world of new technologies that involve storing and processing information.
Bubbles from glacier ice turn up the noise in Alaska fjords
Glaciologist Erin Pettit began a research project to find out what humpback whales heard when a big piece of ice falls from a glacier and crashes into the ocean. But the sound generated by ice drifting in ...
Flight and nuclear safety boosted by sound research
A system for using sound waves to spot potentially dangerous cracks in pipes, aircraft engines and nuclear power plants has been developed by a University of Strathclyde academic.
Naturally acidic waters of Puget Sound surround UW's Friday Harbor Labs
For more than 100 years, marine biologists at Friday Harbor Laboratories have studied the ecology of everything from tiny marine plants to giant sea stars.
