On Oct. 3 at 1500 UTC (11 a.m. EDT), Tropical storm Maliksi had maximum sustained winds of 45 knots (51.7 mph/83.3 kph).
The AIRS instrument that flies aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured an infrared image of Tropical storm Maliksi on Oct. 2, 2012, at 11:47 p.m. EDT. Strongest thunderstorms appeared east of the center of circulation, where cloud-top temperatures were as cold as -63 Fahrenheit (-52 Celsius).

It was located about 470 nautical miles (541 miles/870.4 km) south-southeast of Tokyo, Japan, near 29.4 North and 143.1 East. Maliksi was speeding to the north-northeast at 21 knots (24.1 mph/38.8 kph).
The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument that flies aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured an infrared image of Tropical storm Maliksi on Oct. 2, 2012 at 1547 UTC (11:47 p.m. EDT). Strongest thunderstorms appeared east of the center of circulation, where cloud-top temperatures were as cold as -63 Fahrenheit (-52 Celsius).
On Oct. 3, the strongest thunderstorms and deepest convection were still only occurring east of the center of circulation, with the exception of some limited convection (rising air that form thunderstorms that make up the tropical cyclone) near the center.
The tropical storm is in an area of strong vertical wind shear, which will continue to weaken it. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center noted today, Oct. 3, that Maliksi is starting to look extra-tropical. Maliksi is forecast to remain at sea, and track to the north-northeast over the next several days during its transition.

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...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
