When NASA's Aqua satellite passed over post-tropical storm Fabio on July 18 at 1023 UTC (6:23 a.m. EDT), the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument captured temperatures of cloud tops and the sea surface. AIRS data showed very little strong convection and heavy rainfall occurring in the post-tropical storm and it was north of the center of circulation. Wind shear from the south is pushing the showers north of the center.

Sea surface temperatures are not warm enough to support a tropical cyclone because they are colder than 22 Celsius (71.6 Fahrenheit) in the area Fabio is moving through.
At 11 a.m. EDT on July 18, the National Hurricane Center issued their final advisory on post-tropical storm Fabio. At that time, Fabio was about 535 miles (855 km) south-southwest of San Diego, California, near latitude 25.7 north and longitude 120.8 west. Fabio's maximum sustained winds were near 30 mph (45 kmh) and weakening. It was still moving to the north at 9 mph (15 kmh) but is expected to turn to the north-northeast.
Doppler radar images from San Diego, Calif. showed some shower activity from Fabio approaching the area at 11 a.m. EDT on July 18.
The National Hurricane Center expects Fabio to dissipate in a couple of days. Meanwhile, large ocean swells, rip tides and dangerous surf conditions continue to affect the coasts of Baja California, Mexico and southern California.

Solar cells based on perovskite compounds could soon make electricity generation from sunlight even more efficient and cheaper. The laboratory efficiency of these perovskite solar cells already exceeds that of the well-known silicon solar cells. An international team led by Stefan Weber from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz has found microscopic structures in perovskite crystals that can guide the charge transport in the solar cell. Clever alignment of these "electron highways" could make perovskite solar cells even more powerful.
Solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. During this process, the electrons of the material inside the cell absorb the energy of the light....
Empa researchers have succeeded in applying aerogels to microelectronics: Aerogels based on cellulose nanofibers can effectively shield electromagnetic radiation over a wide frequency range – and they are unrivalled in terms of weight.
Electric motors and electronic devices generate electromagnetic fields that sometimes have to be shielded in order not to affect neighboring electronic...

With an X-ray experiment at the European Synchrotron ESRF in Grenoble (France), Empa researchers were able to demonstrate how well their real-time acoustic monitoring of laser weld seams works. With almost 90 percent reliability, they detected the formation of unwanted pores that impair the quality of weld seams. Thanks to a special evaluation method based on artificial intelligence (AI), the detection process is completed in just 70 milliseconds.
Laser welding is a process suitable for joining metals and thermoplastics. It has become particularly well established in highly automated production, for...
