How mechanical ventilation affects the trajectories of aerosols that may carry viral particles

We have known for a longtime now that the COVID-19 virus and SARS-CoV-2 is a mostly airborne diseases. Ventilation of indoor spaces is therefore...

A new nanotech imaging tool may allow smartphone disease diagnosis

Scientists have developed a low-cost microscopic imaging device small enough to fit on a smartphone camera lens which has the potential to make mobile...

Researchers test key neutrino model at the Large Hadron Collider

The CMS collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has carried out a new test on a model that was developed to explain the...

Researchers bridge the gap between disciplines to better understand chemical reactions

Simon Fraser University researchers are yielding new insights into how chemical reactions can be understood and guided. Results of their interdisciplinary approach have been...

Hydroxyl radicals first detected at 2.8 μm wavelength with optical-feedback cavity-enhanced absorption spectroscopy

A research team led by Prof. Zhang Weijun from the Hefei Institutes of Physical Science (HFIPS) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) has...

Time‑correlated single‑photon counting technique to visualize weak pulse electroluminescence

Time‑correlated single‑photon counting (TCSPC) technique is a powerful way to measure the weak light signals. The basic principle behind TCSPC is the photoelectric effect...

Novel particle detector used to study alternate path to carbon creation in stars

Washington University in St. Louis is part of a collaboration that has yielded new insight into one of the universe's primordial reactions that made...

Heat flow shown to be more efficient when temperature is oscillating than when static

Institute of Scientific Instruments scientists have shown that heat flows more efficiently when the temperature of the material through which it is flowing oscillates....

Deformation of hydrogel used to measure the negative pressure of water

Water has the potential to withstand a massive stretching force or tension due to its internal cohesive force. The hydrostatic pressure of the water...

A luminescent material that shines brighter when stretched or electrified

Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) in Korea scientists have fabricated a flexible material that lights up brightly when stretched and/or when...

Two teams use neutral atoms to create quantum circuits

Two teams of researchers working independently have shown the viability of using neutral atoms to create quantum circuits. Both have published outlines of their...

Haber-Bosch at the atomic scale

Industrial production of NH3 has been performed by the Haber-Bosch process for more than 100 years. The dissociation of N2 feedstock molecules promoted by alkali atom...

Observation of the branched flow of spatially incoherent light in dish soap

Technion-Israel Institute of Technology researchers have conducted the first experimental observation of the branched flow of spatially incoherent light by using liquid dish soap. The...
