Sisyphean task for polar molecules

A new cooling method for polyatomic molecules paves the way for the investigation of molecular gases near absolute zero temperature.

Building molecular engine: Researchers induce uniform oscillation from random noise of single hydrogen molecule

(Phys.org)—A team of physicists working in a lab at Free University of Berlin have succeeded in causing a quartz cantilever to oscillate uniformly using the random vibrations of a single hydrogen molecule. This effect was achieved, the team reports in their paper published in the journal Science, by exciting a hydrogen molecule with electrons and through the use of a crystal that is known for stable oscillations.

Powering lasers through heat

In micro electronics heat often causes problems and engineers have to put a lot of technical effort into cooling, for example micro chips, to dissipate heat that is generated during operation. Austrian physicists have now suggested a concept for a laser that could be powered by heat. This idea may open a completely new way for cooling microchips.

Computer memory could increase fivefold from advances in self-assembling polymers

The researchers' technique, which relies on a process known as directed-self assembly, is being given a real-world test run in collaboration with one of the world's leading innovators in disk drives.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/matter_energy/physics/~4/ITM... height="1" width="1"/>
