Unique microscope has allowed scientists for the first time to see the movement of light

Scientists Institute of Technology Technion (Israel) for the first time were able to explore the light using ultrafast transmission electron microscope.

Thanks to the unique camera, they were able not only to observe the processes that previously had to simulate or mimic, but to use microscopy techniques to study the behavior of photons and electrons.

In previous studies, the microscope was used to analyze the behavior of atoms or quantum dots, but then the ability of scientists was limited. In the new study, the team used a photonic cavity, which are essentially nanoscopic crystals in which the scientists were able to observe freely the current and the interacting electrons and photons.

Israeli scientists hope that their research will help solve one of the important issues in the field of quantum computing. The fact that qubits, which are responsible for the storage of information in quantum computers, it is highly susceptible to generating errors. The new technology of light trap, it is likely to make them much more stable.

The new nanomaterial has the strength of Kevlar and protects from fire

Researchers from Harvard have developed a new type of synthetic fiber that combines the best properties of Kevlar and Twaron. This yet unnamed material has a resistance to penetration of a firearm as Kevlar, but it is 20 times more heat resistant than Twaron. But most importantly, all these properties are implemented in one layer […]

First printed on a 3D printer pseudo-meat steaks will appear in 2021-om

After the lifting of restrictions due to quarantine COVID-19 restaurants in many countries have again started to work, therefore, returned the demand for pseudo-meat. According to analysts from Barclays over the next decade, this market could grow to $140 billion, which is a good stimulus for new players. One of them, an Israeli startup Redefine […]
