Researchers at MIT have observed ferromagnetic behavior in a gas by cooling a gas of lithium atoms to 150 billionth of 1 Kelvin above absolute zero, or -273 degrees.
NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or "WISE" satellite, recently underwent a comprehensive pre-shipment review.
Researchers have for the first time discovered magnetic monopoles - hypothetical particles proposed by physicists that carry a single magnetic pole.
KEK sponsored an Open House in early September that was attended by roughly 4000 people from Tsukuba and surrounding areas.
Worthington Cylinders recently announced the company's acquisition of Structural Composite Industries (SCI).
American Superconductor Corporation has announced that it has formed ASMC Korea to better address the expanding wind energy and power grid demands of Korea.
Shaowei Zhu of Aisin Seiki Co, Ltd., has been given the "Industry Technology Achievement Award" by the Cryogenic Society of Japan.
From symmetry breaking, September 3, 2009: Over the last ten years, Turkish physicists have been working diligently to build a national accelerator center, which would serve as a core science facility and offer increased opportunities for Turkish students.
American Superconductor Corporation announced today that it has formed AMSC India to serve India's ever-expanding wind energy and power grid markets.
From Fermilab Today, September 4, 2009: In August, the Department of Energy announced that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will provide Fermilab with $52.7 million to test and develop superconducting radio frequency cavities, a key technology for next-generation accelerators and the future of particle physics.
On Friday, August 21, Fermilab volunteers, docents and Education Office staffers collaborated to make physics fun and accessible at Labfest, a series of outdoor summer science fairs taking place throughout the Chicagoland area.
Cryogenics and High-Energy Physics 1. From symmetry magazine: http://www.symmetrymagazine.org/cms/?pid=1000627: Cryogenics is the study of how materials behave at temperatures near absolute zero. In high-energy particle accelerators, such frigid temperatures reduce the electrical resistance of wires in superconducting magnets, increasing the magnet strength and allowing faster particle acceleration. The same holds true for superconducting cavities, cryomodules, … Continue reading Particle Physics: High Energy Physics
The Very High Field Superconducting Magnet Collaboration will soon be using $2 million in Recovery Act funds to test BCCO2212, a bismuth-based material that may allow scientists to create high-field superconducting magnets able to acheive twice the strength of existing magnets.
Chart Energy and Chemicals, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Chart Industries, has signed a joint agreement with Toyo Engineering Corporation (TOYO) of Japan to jointly pursue certain mid-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) opportunities.
In January 2008 British Airways flight BA038, a Boeing 777 that departed from Beijing, crashed while on final approach to London Heathrow airport after both its jet engines lost power, a condition known as roll-back. Dr. Ralph G.Scurlock explains how the UK and US Air Accident Investigation authorities, together with Boeing and Rolls-Royce, carried out simulation tests and decided that the uncontrolled roll-back appeared to arise from water freezing to ice in the jet fuel and creating unexpected blockages in the fuel supply systems on the aircraft.
FEI, a provider of 3D molecular, cellular and atomic-scale imaging systems, has announced the completed installation of its Titan Krios™ cryo transmission electron microscope (TEM) at Tsinghua University in Beijing.
