Improving the performance of electrodeless plasma thrusters for space propulsion

A researcher at Tohoku University has improved the performance of a high-power electrodeless plasma thruster, bringing us one step closer to further space exploration. Electric propulsion technology is enabling a comparable advancement in space. Historically, innovations in terrestrial transportation technologies such as vehicles, railroads, and...

Light-controlled reactions at the nanoscale

Controlling strong electromagnetic fields on nanoparticles is important to trigger targeted molecular reactions on their surfaces. This control over strong fields is achieved via laser light. Laser-induced formation and breaking of molecular bonds on nanoparticle surfaces have been observed in the past. But nanoscopic...
