Scientists finally convert light into matter and back into light

Lene Hau has already shaken scientists’ beliefs about the nature of things. Albert Einstein and just about every other physicist insisted that light travels 186,000 miles a second in free space, and that it can’t be speeded-up or slowed down. But in 1998, Hau, for the first time in history, slowed light to 38 miles […]

IBM develops world’s fatest transistor using Graphene

IBM claimed to build the world’s fastest Graphene transistor. The IBM researchers claimed to make a Graphene Field Effect Transistor that works at frequency ranges of few Giga hertz.This research could prove making of efficient and super speed computing device. Myself being a Electronic student know the importance of Transistor and the transition time and […]

Documents that get erased after being read

You must have seen in Harry Potter movies when some letters gets teared apart and destroyed after the message has been conveyed, but it is no longer fiction as scientist have made special documents that when coated with a special layer of nano-particles would get erased by themselves when read once.

Lend free idle time on your computer for HIV and drug research

Now you can contribute in helping researchers from the University of Delaware, The Scripps Research Institute, and the University of California – Berkeley by giving them some idle time on your computer. This was all part of a revolutionary docking technology known as Dynamically Adaptive Protein-Ligand Docking System (DAPLDS) and is supported by the National […]

Astronomers discover a new type of supernovae

In a find that could potentially upset the current classification model employed in the astronomical community to identify a supernova explosion, researchers have discovered what appears to be a new class of supernova altogether, one that is dimmer and smaller than previously though possible. Astronomers working with the Calar Alto Observatory made the find in […]
