Researchers from the New ITMO University Physics Department together with scientific groups from China, Germany and Australia have created a structure that concentrates a dynamic electromagnetic field only inside itself and does not emit energy into the surrounding space. This will allow in the future to create a new generation of devices for wireless power transmission, contactless chargers, high-precision RF sensors, sensors, chips and tags, as well as medical devices.
Tiny structures made up of mechanically bound molecules can act as single molecular machines, and this is an extremely exciting field of chemical research.
While the data on most storage devices can be read using electrical signals, the new technology encodes them in light. This allows the system to read them by simply checking whether the LED is on or off. Recently, researchers have developed a new device based entirely on perovskite that can do both at the same time.
The possibility of time travel has excited scientists for hundreds of years, inspiring countless books and films. The ability to move not only in space, but also into the past or the future would open up many possibilities for humanity. But is time travel theoretically possible?
In addition to the basic well—known states of matter — solid, liquid, gas and plasma - many other, much more exotic states can be created in the laboratory.
The technology of fixing the neutrino flux coming from a nuclear reactor was proposed by MEPhI scientists 50 years ago. Modern developments are being carried out on elastic coherent scattering discovered three years ago – the interaction of neutrinos with energy conservation with all nucleons at once.
The widespread use of composite materials in the creation of new generation aircraft is one of the main trends in the aviation industry. Composites can be used to manufacture the fuselage, wings, tail and other elements of the aircraft, which reduces its weight and increases strength. However, nothing is perfect: over time, the mechanical and strength properties of composite materials deteriorate, which is associated with the accumulation of damage during operation. It is extremely important to calculate exactly how this process takes place in order to increase the resource of aviation products.
Skoltech researchers and their colleagues from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and Uppsala University (Sweden) predicted the presence of antichiral ferromagnetism in a certain class of magnetic crystals – an unusual property that can give rise to research on a number of new effects associated with magnetism.
There is a replenishment in the zoo of elementary particles. The LHCb collaboration (CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research), which includes the G. I. Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics SB RAS (INP SB RAS), Novosibirsk State University (NSU), the A.I. Alikhanov Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Physics, the Kurchatov Institute (ITEF), etc., announced the opening of a new particle – the exotic tetraquark Tss+. The particle stands out strongly among its fellows and represents a new form of matter.
One of the largest detectors of the Large Hadron Collider — CMS — recently replaced the system for monitoring the radiation background and parameters of colliding beams. One of the important parts of the system is the BCML beam emergency discharge system, which is necessary to protect individual CMS nodes and their electronics from critical radiation damage. For her, scientists at Tomsk Polytechnic University installed eight new diamond sensors — this is the main part of the system. It is planned that the new detectors will last from three to five years, until the next detector update.
