astronomySuperconductoring Alloys Found in Meteorites

Researchers used a highly sensitive technique to examine 16 samples from two different meteorites to find new superconducting alloys. One meteorite formed in the iron core of an asteroid and one flung off a planet’s surface by a collision. Above …

batteriesSandy Munro Discusses the SpaceX Materials and Technology Being Used at Tesla

Sandy Munro is an expert at breaking down cars and determining now to optimize construction and processes. He describes the processes for stamping the metal body of the cybertruck and the tougher glass. The 301 stainless metal is common to …

materialsNew Superconducting States Have Been Discovered

Superconductivity has been shown in monolayer crystals of, for example, molybdenum disulphide or tungsten disulfide that have a thickness of just three atoms. ‘In both monolayers, there is a special type of superconductivity in which an internal magnetic field protects …

energyInfrared Solar Cells Will Boost Solar Power by Up to 25% and Eventually Double

A research team led by Hans Ågren, professor in theoretical chemistry at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, has developed a film that can be applied on top of ordinary solar cells, which would enable them to use infrared light in …

The University of Reno Nevada National Terawatt Facility and commercial company, US Nuclear and MIFTEC, were able to generate the most powerful neutron flux from fusion power ever achieved by a private company. They will scale up to a 10 …

futureNew Superconducting Material Could Make Disruption Resistant Quantum Computers

In the new study, Yufan Li and colleagues found that a ring of β-Bi2Pd already naturally exists between two states in the absence of an external magnetic field. Current can inherently circulate both clockwise and counterclockwise, simultaneously, through a ring …
