New 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 the superconducting state from external magnetic fields,’ Ye explains. Normal superconductivity disappears when a large …

Infrared 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 energy conversion and increase efficiency by 10 percent or more. “We have achieved a 10 …

US Army Working With UFO Group on Controversial and Speculative Technology

Blink-182 singer Tom DeLonge’s UFO research, called To the Stars Academy (TTSA), signed an agreement with the U.S. Army to study and develop advanced materials for beamed propulsion, inertial mass reduction and more. Online sources indicate that Tom DeLonge has a net worth of about $80 million. Blink-182 sold over 25 million records. TTSA agrees …

Nuclear Fusion Z-Pinch Progress with Staged Z-Pinch LTD 10MA Generator

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 MegaAmp version of their machine. This will have ten times the amperate and should generate …

New 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 of β-Bi2Pd. Above – A visual representation of a qubit, which can exist simultaneously between …

Lightbridge Makes Metallic Fuel Usable for Nuscale Reactor

Lightbridge Corporation and Enfission, LLC have demonstrated the manufacturing process and fabrication of Lightbridge Fuel surrogate rods in a length that could be usable in NuScale Power’s small modular reactors (SMR). The demonstration included the production of several coextruded rods using an internally developed and patented coextrusion process, Lightbridge said. The fuel rod design is …

Space Elevator From the Moon to Geostationary Earth Orbit

The new lunar space elevator study differs from previous proposal would be anchored on the moon and stretch 200,000 miles toward Earth until hitting the geostationary orbit height (about 22,236 miles above sea level). We do not have materials for a space elevator from the Earth to Geostationary orbit. The moon spaceline would be longer …
