People in Poor Countries will still catch up and reduce world income inequality in 2035

Over the next two decades the structure of world population and income will undergo profound changes. Global income inequality is projected to decline further in 2035, largely owing to rapid economic growth in the emerging-market economies. The potential pool of consumers worldwide will expand significantly, with the largest net gains in the developing and emerging-market …

Supramolecular nanofibers could create super efficient solar energy

The conversion of sunlight into electricity at low cost becomes increasingly important to meet the world’s fast growing energy consumption. This task requires the development of new device concepts, in which particularly the transport of light-generated energy with minimal losses is a key aspect. An interdisciplinary group of researchers from the Universities of Bayreuth and …

Metamaterial engineering to triple the critical temperature of a dielectric composite superconductor

Plasmonic metamaterial geometry may enable fabrication of an aluminum-based metamaterial superconductor with a critical temperature that is three times that of pure aluminum. Recent theoretical and experimental work has conclusively demonstrated that using metamaterials in dielectric response engineering can increase the critical temperature of a composite superconductor-dielectric metamaterial. This enables numerous practical applications, such as …

Russia recommissioning special operations midget submarines

Russian president Vladimir Putin is planning to recommission Cold War-era fleet of midget submarines, which are virtually undetectable. The Piranha-class vessels can operate very close to the shore and can be used to drop mines or fire torpedoes. With a crew of nine, the Piranha can approach silently and can even deploy combat divers or …

Femtosecond lasers used to probe phase changes made by nanosecond lasers to develop computer memory follow up to Blu-ray

DVDs and Blu-ray disks contain so-called phase-change materials that morph from one atomic state to another after being struck with pulses of laser light, with data “recorded” in those two atomic states. Using ultrafast laser pulses that speed up the data recording process, Caltech researchers adopted a novel technique, ultrafast electron crystallography (UEC), to visualize …

DARPA can non-mechanically sweep a laser back and forth 100,000 times a second will make far cheaper and more powerful laser scanning

A non-mechanical approach could open the door to a new class of miniaturized, extremely low-cost, robust laser-scanning technologies for military and commercial use Many essential military capabilities—including autonomous navigation, chemical-biological sensing, precision targeting and communications—increasingly rely upon laser-scanning technologies such as LIDAR (think radar that uses light instead of radio waves). These technologies provide amazing …

Imperfect Malaria Vaccine can still help reduce Malaria cases by 36%

The world’s first Malaria vaccine provides modest protection. Four injections of the RTS,S vaccine reduced cases of malaria in children aged 5 to 17 months and babies aged 6 to 12 weeks at first vaccination by 36 and 26 per cent respectively after four years, compared with non-recipients. “Given that there were an estimated 198 …

China real estate market correcting but not imploding

Wall Street Journal – Will China’s property bubble trigger a financial crisis? Concern is high this year thanks to deteriorating sales figures and reports of large price cuts. But China really is different. Though a correction is coming, the consequences will be more manageable than common sense might suggest. This information was written by Mr. …
