Advancing photonics materials with cellular automation

Inspired by the "Game of Life" SUTD researchers are applying cellular automation to efficiently model phase change materials with multiple optical phases for next-generation photonics devices.

Researchers propose a simpler design for quantum computers

Today's quantum computers are complicated to build, difficult to scale up, and require temperatures colder than interstellar space to operate. These challenges have led researchers to explore the possibility of building quantum ...

Seismology: A promising tool for monitoring permafrost

The warming and thawing of permafrost in response to rising temperatures are increasingly destabilizing rock slopes, causing more occurrences of rockfall in recent years. This trend is expected to continue, raising concerns ...

Controlling light with a material three atoms thick

Most of us control light all the time without even thinking about it, usually in mundane ways: we don a pair of sunglasses and put on sunscreen, and close—or open—our window blinds.

There is more than one way to accelerate decarbonization

While West Virginia's Senator Joe Manchin is doing his best to block climate policy and save his state's dying fossil fuel industry, there is no reason to believe that the proposed "Clean Electricity Program" policy design ...

Interior organization of the nucleolus discovered

The nucleolus—a conspicuous but obscure organelle within the cell nucleus—is normally too compact to be studied in detail. Researchers at Case Western Reserve University just learned how to simplify its structure in living ...

A cable is two or more wires or ropes running side by side and bonded, twisted or braided together to form a single assembly. In mechanics, cables are used for lifting and hauling; in electricity they are used to carry electrical currents. An optical cable contains one or more optical fibers in a protective jacket that supports the fibers. Mechanical cable is more specifically called wire rope.
