The dodo,an extinct, giant flightless pigeon once endemic to the island of Mauritius, may arguably be the most widely known animal species to have gone extinct in human history. However, despite its prominence in popular culture, surprisingly little is known of the anatomy and biology of this animal.

Satellite Based X-Ray Vision. On Feb. 17, 2016, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) launched its ASTRO-H satellite which is a very precise and sensitive eye for X-rays emerging from hot and energetic processes in space. After its successful lift-off, the spacecraft was renamed “Hitomi,” which means “pupil of the eye” in Japanese.

What Is Unconventional Superconductivity? Superconductivity was discovered in Hg in 1911 by the group of Kamerling Onnes in Leiden (Holland). The mystery of superconductivity was, however, not uncovered until 1957 when Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer (BCS) proposed the electron-phonon coupling picture. In the BCS picture, two electrons near the Fermi surface with opposite momenta and spins will form […]

Impossible Applications for Today’s Parallel Processors, Possible With Quantum Computers. Researchers from Griffith University and the University of Queensland, Australia have overcome one of the key challenges to quantum computing by simplifying a complex quantum logic operation. They demonstrated this by experimentally realizing a challenging circuit namely the quantum Fredkin gate, for the first time.

New Developments for Bioimaging Devices Such As MRI. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a technique that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues within your body.┬áMost of today’s MRI machines are large, tube-shaped magnets that are large enough for a person to lie in. The magnetic […]

The World Needs Energy Storage Options For Clean Energy Storage. A transformer is an electrical device that transfers electrical energy between two or more circuits through electromagnetic induction. Electromagnetic induction produces an electromotive force within a conductor which is exposed to time varying magnetic fields.

New Technology For Early Detection of Fuel-Based Explosives. Alkane fuel is a key ingredient in combustible material such as gasoline, airplane fuel, oil — even a homemade bomb. Yet it’s difficult to detect and there are no portable scanners available that can sniff out the odorless and colorless vapor.
