The Quantum Fridge
When cold milk is poured into a hot cup of tea, a temperature equilibrium is reached very quickly. The milk droplets and the tea particles interact, and after a few moments they all have the same aver...
New Paper Asserts That Life Could Survive On A Planet Orbiting A Black Hole
Living on a planet orbiting a black hole might be a reality in our future. According to the second law of thermodynamics, life requires a temperature difference to provide a source of useable energy. ...
Heat Radiates 10,000 Times Faster At The Nanoscale
When heat travels between two objects that aren't touching, it flows differently at the smallest scales—distances on the order of the diameter of DNA, or 1/50,000 of a human hair. In a unique ultra-l...
New ‘Self-Healing’ Gel Makes Electronics More Flexible
Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering have developed a first-of-its-kind self-healing gel that repairs and connects electronic circuits, creating opportunities to advance the development o...
UW Team Refrigerates Liquids With A Laser For The First Time
Since the first laser was invented in 1960, they’ve always given off heat — either as a useful tool, a byproduct or a fictional way to vanquish intergalactic enemies. But those concentrated beams of l...
Scientists Predict Cool New Phase Of Superionic Ice
Scientists have predicted a new phase of superionic ice, a special form of ice that could exist on Uranus and Neptune, in a theoretical study performed by a team of researchers at Princeton University...
Bubble, Bubble … Boiling On The Double
The boiling of water is at the heart of many industrial processes, from the operation of electric power plants to chemical processing and desalination. But the details of what happens on a hot surface...
Can Rain Clean The Atmosphere?
As a raindrop falls through the atmosphere, it can attract tens to hundreds of tiny aerosol particles to its surface before hitting the ground. The process by which droplets and aerosols attract is co...
Saltwater Lamps For Those in Need
In first world countries, light and electricity may be something taken for granted. When one ambles into a business office, it’s uncommon to marvel at the fluorescents above when they flicker on. All ...
Dawn Of A New Era: The Revolutionary Ion Engine That Took Spacecraft To Ceres
The NASA spacecraft Dawn has spent more than seven years travelling across the Solar System to intercept the asteroid Vesta and the dwarf planet Ceres. Now in orbit around Ceres, the probe has returne...
