The Novosibirsk researchers have developed a device capable of producing mist with support from the Russian Foundation for Basic Research and the Foundation for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises (FASIE). The precise name of the device is “field device for measuring liquid and gas velocities”. It helps to perform prompt, precise and, most importantly, simultaneous measuring of the velocity at any point of the fluid and gas flow.
“Field device for measuring liquid and gas velocity” is the name of the device developed and produced by the researchers of Institute of Thermal Physics, Siberian Branch, Russian Academy of Sciences (Novosibirsk) with support from the Russian Foundation for Basic Research and the Foundation for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises (FASIE). The device helps to track in full detail the life of the flow and to learn, for example, what the velocity is at each point, how and where turbulences appear. In other words, it is possible not only to “shoot an animated film” about the flow of liquid or gas, but also to perform mathematical treatment of each “shot”.
The device operations are based on the principle known since the times of Prandtl and other classical hydrodynamics scholars. This is the so-called stroboscopical visualization of flows. In other words, small particles – tracers – are placed in the flow transparent for employed irradiation. The tracers do not influence the stream, they drift together with the flow, but the tracers are not transparent for irradiation.

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
