Scientists Turn Objects Invisible Without Metamaterial Coating

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

A team of scientists from ITMO University, Ioffe Institute, and Australian National University have discovered a way to render homogenous cylindrical objects completely invisible without metamaterial coating. The method used for the experiment was based on a new understanding of electromagnetic wave scattering.

Scientists Build New Nanometer-Sized Laser Using a Single Atomic Sheet

Thursday, April 16, 2015

Nature International Weekly Journal of Science, recently published a study entitled “Monolayer semiconductor nanocavity lasers with ultralow thresholds” which details the creation of a nanolaser using a single atomic sheet. The study was conducted by a team of scientists from the University of Washington in collaboration with Stanford University.

How to Use a Hydrometer

Tuesday, April 7, 2015

A hydrometer is an instrument used to measure specific gravity or relative density of liquids. It takes the form of cylindrical glass or plastic with a bulb-shaped end. A printed scale calibrated to a specific gravity can be found on its stem while the end is weighted with lead shot or steel shot to keep the hydrometer upright in liquid.

Chemists Discover Method for Advancing Organic Glass Molecules

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

Mark Ediger and a team of chemists from the University of Wisconsin-Madison have discovered a way to control the order of organic glass molecules. The study which details their methodology and findingswas published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
