TRMM measured the rainfall rates in Nalgae on October 4, 2011 at 0624 UTC (2:24 a.m. EDT). The rainfall analysis from TRMM's Microwave Imager (TMI) and Precipitation Radar (PR) showed only scattered areas of light to moderate rainfall were present with Nalgae as it moved into the Gulf of Tonkin west of Hainan Island. Rain was falling at a rate between .78 to 1.57 inches/20 to 40 mm per hour.

By October 5 at 1500 UTC (11 a.m. EDT), Nalgae had weakened into a remnant low pressure area with maximum sustained winds of 20 knots (23 mph/37 kmh) around its circulation center. It was located about 100 nautical miles north of Hue, Vietnam near 18.0 North and 107.3 East. The remnant low was drifting to the west-southwest at 2 knots (2 mph/4 kmh).
The forecasters at the Joint Typhoon Warning Center noted that the movement across Hainan Island weakened the system beyond the point of regeneration. There was no convection (rising air that forms thunderstorms that make up a tropical depression) evident today, Oct. 5. The remnant low is drifting to the coast today.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
