On Sept. 26, 2013 at 03:55 UTC/Sept. 25 at 11:55 p.m. EDT, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible image of Tropical Storm Pabuk skirting eastern Japan. MODIS imagery also showed a steady influx of cold air stratocumulus clouds into the low-level center of Pabuk, which was helping transition the storm.

On Sept. 26 at 1500 UTC/11 a.m. EDT, Extra-tropical storm Pabuk had maximum sustained winds near 60 knots/69 mph/111 kph. The center of Pabuk was located near 34.9 north and 146.7 east, about 441 nm south-southeast of Misawa, Japan. Pabuk continued to track to the northeast and has sped up to 25 knots/28.7 mph/46.3 kph per hour.
Satellite data revealed that Pabuk's low-level center has become elongated and more ragged on Sept. 26. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center noted that the entire tropical cyclone appears more asymmetrical and fragmented.
Pabuk is now part of a baroclinic cold air mass and is rapidly transforming into an extra-tropical cyclone. By the end of the day on Sept. 26, Pabuk is expected to be a cold core low pressure system over the open waters of the Northwestern Pacific Ocean, and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center issued its final advisory on Pabuk.Text credit: Rob Gutro

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.
In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
