NASA Voyager 1 Probe Encounters New Region in Deep Space

NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft has entered a new region at the far reaches of our solar system that scientists feel is the final area the spacecraft has to cross before reaching interstellar space.

Bismuth provides perfect dance partners for quantum computing qubits

New research has demonstrated a way to make bismuth electrons and nuclei work together as qubits in a quantum computer.

Diamond-like coating improves electron microscope images

(Phys.org)—Coating the surface of a material with a single layer of diamond-like crystals greatly improves images of it taken with an electron microscope, according to a study led by scientists at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University.

Measuring individual atoms with compact X-ray lasers

To look at small objects typically requires big machines. For example, the study of single atoms with a laser requires x-ray radiation of such high energy that it is only produced by accelerating electrons in large facilities. Researchers at the RIKEN SPring-8 Center in Harima have developed a more affordable electron laser design, the SPring-8 Angstrom Compact free-electron Laser (SACLA), which is not only compact and therefore economic to build but also delivers x-rays with unprecedented short wavelengths.

Small and efficient: Water nanodroplets cool biomolecules ultrafast

Researchers have observed how biomolecules transfer energy into extremely small water droplets in their environment. A water shell consisting of only three water molecules around a phospholipid molecule is sufficient for energy transfer within 1 ps.
