Plasmomechanical device modulates, transduces and amplifies light

The interaction of light with matter is a field of active study, with our understanding improving every day at smaller and smaller scales. The previous limit of understanding has now just been broken with the introduction of a plasmomechanical device that allows the interaction of light and matter to be modulated at precise energy ranges below the diffraction limit.

Black Hole Cluster

A cluster of black holes within one parsec – 20 trillion miles – of the central halo of our Milky Way galaxy has just been confirmed. This has long been predicted by theorists, but until now has never been confirmed!

Using water molecules to read electrical activity in lipid membranes

Every human cell is encased in a five-nanometer-thick lipid membrane that protects it from the surrounding environment. Like a gatekeeper, the membrane determines which ions and molecules can pass through. In so doing, it ensures the cell’s well-being and stability and allows it to communicate via electrical signals.

World’s first continuous room-temperature solid-state maser built using diamond

The maser (microwave amplification by stimulated emission of radiation), the older microwave frequency sibling of the laser, was invented in 1954. However unlike lasers, which have become widespread, masers are much less widely used because in order to function they must be cooled to temperatures close to absolute zero (-273°C).

Dark matter ‘missing’ in a galaxy far, far away

The observation of a galaxy with apparently little to no “dark matter” is bolstering the recent data indicating that the conventional model of dark matter is wrong.

Tetrahedral geometry of water found to account for it’s remarkable properties

Water is the most common and yet least understood material on Earth. Despite its simplicity, water tends to form tetrahedral order locally by directional hydrogen bonding. This structuring is known to be responsible for a vast array of unusual properties, e.g., the density maximum at 4 °C, which play a fundamental role in countless natural and technological processes, with the Earth’s climate being one of the most important examples. By systematically tuning the degree of tetrahedrality, we succeed in continuously interpolating between water-like behavior and simple liquid-like behavior. Our approach reveals what physical factors make water so anomalous and special even compared with other tetrahedral liquids.

Cosmic clocks

The rotational velocity of galaxies has long been a study of interest, with its intriguing relationship with distance leading to the hypothesis of dark matter. A new study has now added to the intrigue and shown that the velocity distance relationship is constant and thus no matter what the size of the galaxy, it will always take a billion years for one complete rotation.

New footage of unidentified advanced propulsion craft captured by the U.S. navy has been released

A new purported military video of an unidentified aircraft has been made public, following the Pentagon’s acknowledgment last year that it had shelved an initiative devoted to identifying unknown objects in aerospace. To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science — an organization leading on the issue that includes a former head of the now-defunct Pentagon program and was co-founded by former Blink182 musician Tom DeLonge — released the video titled “GO FAST” on Friday. The group said it is Defense Department footage from an F/A-18 Super Hornet’s video of the “high-speed flight of an unidentified aircraft.” The Pentagon declined to comment about the footage to CNN, and To The Stars Academy said multiple government organizations reviewed the video for release, and that anyone could obtain the video using a Freedom of Information Act request.

Scientist Propose Feasible Test of Quantum Gravity

Two teams of researchers working independently of one another have come up with an experiment designed to prove that gravity and quantum mechanics can be reconciled. The first team is a pairing of Chiara Marletto of the University of Oxford and Vlatko Vedral of National University of Singapore. The second is an international collaboration. In the papers, both published in Physical Review Letters, the teams describe their experiment and how it might be carried out.
