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.

Physicists have learned to turn plastic bottles in supercapacitors

Scientists from the University of California, riverside have developed a technology to produce components for supercapacitors from regular waste. We are talking about polyethylene terephthalate or PET, which is made most of plastic bottles. This material is from an economic point of view is significantly superior to high-tech raw materials, like graphene or carbon nanotubes. […]

Looks like a screwdriver of the XXI century

Recently Techcult wrote about the drill of the XXI century with a touchscreen and lasers. But the screwdriver is traditionally considered to be more simple, reliable and very straightforward tool. What similar high-tech screwdriver advanced Italian production? And it is similar to the Kinetic device Driver. Kinetic Driver designed by the Italian designer Giacomo Di […]

Our Solar system is most similar to space croissant

The sun emits powerful electromagnetic winds that envelop the planet in our solar system like a giant bubble. This magnetic bubble is called the heliosphere and protects the planet from dangerous space radiation. Scientists have long believed that the heliosphere is in the form of a comet – with a distinct nose and long flowing […]

Some homemade masks turned out to be more dangerous than no

Despite the fact that the industry has recovered from the shock of the first days of the pandemic COVID-19 and now produces enough facial masks of different types, most people in the world due to various reasons use homemade versions. Everyone understands that they are less effective than professional medical model, but the question is: […]
