Interaction between light and sound in nanoscale waveguide
Scientists from Ghent University and imec announce today that they demonstrated interaction between light and sound in a nanoscale area. Their findings elucidate the physics of light-matter coupling at these ...
Falling faster—researchers confirm super-terminal raindrops
Five years ago, a research team at Michigan Technological University and Universidad Nacional Autanoma de Mexico (National University of Mexico) detected tiny, super-fast raindrops. The finding was unexpe ...
Switching superconductivity by light
A research team led by Prof. Hiroshi M. Yamamoto of the Institute for Molecular Science, National Institutes of Natural Sciences has developed a novel superconducting transistor which can be switched reversibly ...
Running faster equals disaster
Trading maximum speed for manoeuvrability may be essential to surviving a run-in with a predator, a new study shows.
Researchers determine key element in circadian clock speed
In a discovery that may lead to new treatments for sleep disorders, jet lag and other health problems tied to circadian rhythms, researchers at Dartmouth's Geisel School of Medicine have identified a determinant ...
Ramp metering and speed limits to prevent traffic jams
EPFL researchers showed that by managing the access to freeway junctions and moderating the speed limit on the express lanes it is possible to reduce delays by over 12% across the highway system.
What Google Fiber may mean for North Carolina, NC state and R&D
On Jan. 27, Google announced that it would be expanding its fiber-optic network, Google Fiber, into four new metropolitan areas: Raleigh-Durham, Charlotte, Atlanta and Nashville. So what?
