Researchers have Discovered a Mechanism for Making Superconductors More Magnetic Field Resistant

Researchers have Discovered a Mechanism for Making Superconductors More Magnetic Field Resistant

Strong magnetic fields are known to easily destroy superconductivity. A superconductor with atomic-scale thickness can keep its superconductivity even when a high magnetic field is applied to it, according to researchers from NIMS, Osaka University, and Hokkaido University. The team has also disc.....

Scientists were able to Accurately Replicate the Solidification of a Molten Droplet as it Collides with a Cooler Flat Surface

Scientists were able to Accurately Replicate the Solidification of a Molten Droplet as it Collides with a Cooler Flat Surface

In planes, gas turbine engines create thrust by taking in air, heating it to extremely high temperatures in a combustion chamber, and then exhausting it at high speeds. Small inorganic particles, like as volcanic ash, are taken in with the air as they function. These particles melt in the combust.....

Physicists have Discovered a Method for Simulating Nonlinear Quantum Electrodynamics in a Laboratory Setting

Physicists have Discovered a Method for Simulating Nonlinear Quantum Electrodynamics in a Laboratory Setting

When lightsabers collide on the big screen, in video games, and in our imaginations, they flare and catch. In actuality, the beams of light pass through each other, forming spiderweb patterns, much like in a laser light display. Only in fiction and in regions with large magnetic and electric fiel.....
