Researchers discover Novel Magnetic Behavior in TI at Room Temperature; Here’s How

A novel magnetic behavior has been noticed on a material surface, claimed a research team, comprising researchers from a number of institutes. It may help in creating tiny and more efficient instruments.

According to researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Oak Ridge National Laboratory and others, they discovered magnetic behavior in hybrid topological insulator (TI) materials with the help of neutron scattering. The discovery was done at room temperature, they added.

This mechanism could help improve performance of wide variety of everyday goods

A research published recently in the journal Physical Review Letters has explained a new physical mechanism wherein particles get separated on the basis of their size while the wet coatings are getting dry. The finding can possibly enhance the performance of a huge number of everyday goods, ranging from paint to sunscreen.

Researchers discover New Form of Elementary Particle: Four-flavored tetraquark

Researchers discover New Form of Elementary Particle: Four-flavored tetraquark

A ‘four-flavored’ tetraquark has been detected during DZero experiment by a research team led by Daria Zieminska, a physicist at Indiana University. It is a new form of tetraquark, which was first recorded by scientists on the Belle experiment in Japan in 2008. This new tetraquark has four quark flavors, which are up, down, strange and bottom. The discovery was announced on February 25.

Low-frequency gravitational waves could soon be detectable by existing radio telescopes, study shows

The gravitational waves that have been detected recently by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) belonged to two black holes merged into one. Both the black holes had a mass 30 times than that of our sun. Gravitational waves cover an extensive range of frequencies that need distinct technologies to detect.

A latest study from the North American Nanohertz Observatory for Gravitational Waves (NANOGrav) has shown that the existing radio telescopes could soon detect low-frequency gravitational waves.

Particles at quantum level follow surrealistic trajectories

Particles at quantum level follow surrealistic trajectories

New research on quantum mechanics has found some interesting phenomenon, contrary to what has been unveiled about the standard interpretation of the field. Researchers said that particles at the quantum level can behave like billiard balls rolling on a table.

The tracks that the particles follow are surrealistic trajectories. Current study’s lead researcher CIFAR Senior Fellow Aephraim Steinberg and team from the University of Toronto have tracked the trajectories of photons by tracing the path of the particles through one of two slits and onto a screen.

Franklin & Marshall College Astronomy Professor Explains Why Gravitational Waves Discovery is Important

Now that the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) has detected gravitational waves as per Einstein’s theory, that are ripples in the curvature of space-time which propagate as waves, scientists predict the way they observe the universe is going to change. But why the discovery is such a big deal? What can astronomers and scientists do with gravitational waves?

Body heat alone is enough for new polymer to undergo shape change

Body heat alone is enough for new polymer to undergo shape change

A novel kind of polymer has been developed that changes shape through body heat alone. The new material developed by a team led by Chemical Engineering Professor Mitch Anthamatten at the University of Rochester is of a kind that can be programmed to retain a temporary shape until it is triggered to return to its original shape.

The USP of the new material is that it lifts 1,000 times its own mass. The new super-material could one day be used for a number of purposes, including stitch you up after surgery and take form-fitting spandex to a whole new level.

Canadian Physicists Discover Something Interesting about Superconductivity

Canadian Physicists Discover Something Interesting about Superconductivity

Physicists at University of Waterloo's Department of Physics and Astronomy have found evidence of Electronic nematicity during an experiment on a particular kind of high-temperature superconductor. Their findings led to a theory which could explain why superconductivity takes place at higher temperature in certain materials.

Micro Black Holes Could Power Entire World, Claims Hawking

Micro Black Holes Could Power Entire World, Claims Hawking

Stephen Hawking has made another theory on black holes, the regions of space having gravitational field so intense that no matter or radiation can escape. The theory claims that mini black holes with mass equivalent to that of a mountain would discharge X-rays and gamma rays at a rate of about 10 million megawatts. The energy is enough to fulfill the world’s electricity needs.

MIT Researchers Harness Power from Natural Motions

MIT Researchers Harness Power from Natural Motions

The biomedical, mechanical and environmental monitoring devices will be literally able to receive unlimited power supply if the energy from small but natural motions and activities can be harnessed. In a revolutionary study, the MIT researchers have discovered a new electrochemical technology that can be used to harness the power from an extensive spectrum of normal motions and activities.
