First satellite observatory for quantum optical communication

An Israeli first: One of world’s most advanced satellite observatories. The Center for Quantum Science and Technology at Tel Aviv University has built the first ground station in Israel –…

The bubbling universe

A previously unknown phase transition in the early universe. Think of bringing a pot of water to the boil: As the temperature reaches the boiling point, bubbles form in the…

Plasma-Structural Coloring: A new colorful approach to an inkless future

Classic graphite pencils can be used and transformed into colorful works using plasma irradiation, without a drop of colored ink used. New developments for achieving structural coloring through plasma irradiation…

‘Liquid windows’ inspired by squid skin

… could help buildings react to changing environments, save on energy costs. University of Toronto Engineering researchers create bio-inspired system that can optimize the wavelength, intensity and dispersion of light…

Piloting drones reliably with mobile communication technology

Drones are operating increasingly in areas out of sight of the person controlling them. However, conventional remote controls have a limited range, which makes them unsuitable for these flights. On…

Energy-efficient neighborhood redevelopment for affordable housing

In the “smood® — smart neighborhood” project, sixteen companies, four research institutions and an association have been working together, with the scientific support of Fraunhofer, on the future of energy-related…

Unconventional superconductivity found in kagome metal

Physicists using advanced muon spin spectroscopy at Paul Scherrer Institute PSI make the missing link between their recent breakthrough in a kagome metal and unconventional superconductivity. The team uncovered an…

Oxygen in Earth’s Higher Atmosphere

A study of the upper atmosphere’s composition has successfully measured an increased presence of 18O, a heavier oxygen issotope with 10 instead of eight neutrons. Helmut Wiesemeyer (MPIfR Bonn) and…

The first lab-created “quantum abacus”

A new study reports the first experimental creation of a quantum potential with energies given by sequences of prime numbers, paving the way for a new approach to the investigation…
