Spinning the light: The world’s smallest optical gyro

Gyroscopes are devices that facilitate vehicles, drones, and wearable and hand-held electronic devices apprehend their orientation in three-dimensional house. they’re commonplace in barely regarding as of technology we tend to depend upon each day. Originally, gyroscopes were sets of nested wheels, every spinning on a unique axis. however open up a cellular phone these days,

Summary: For the primary time, physicists at CERN have discovered a benchmark energy transition in antihydrogen, a serious step toward cooling and manipulating the essential variety of substance. Antimatter, destroyed on impact with the matter, is notoriously difficult to capture and work with. however its study is vital to resolution one in every one of

About thirty per cent of the proteins encoded by the human ordering ar membrane proteins — proteins that span the semipermeable membrane in order that they will facilitate communication between cells and their surroundings. These molecules are vital for learning, seeing, and sensing odors, among several different functions. Despite the prevalence of those proteins, scientists

The simple but important job of drawing and testing the blood of patients can now be taken over by a robot, an article on News Wise reported. That is because New Jersey-based engineers came up with a fully-automated blood drawing and the testing machine that can work much faster than humans in a laboratory. The robot is intended

Will these sharpshooting, weight-lifting Russian androids fly to space next year? An unnamed “source in the rocket and space industry” has told Russia’s international news agency, RIA Novosti, that two androids, as part of Russia’s robot platform FEDOR (Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research), will fly a crewless Soyuz spacecraft to the International Space Station in 2019.

An international group of researchers has achieved the world’s first multi-qubit demonstration of a quantum chemistry calculation performed on a system of trapped ions, one of the leading hardware platforms in the race to develop a universal quantum computer. The research, led by University of Sydney physicist Dr Cornelius Hempel, explores a promising pathway for developing

We often rely on lie detectors or polygraphs, but these devices are not always 100 percent accurate. There are other means to determine if an individual is lying, such as by observing micro-movements, or movements that we subconsciously make while lying. These can include anything from a raised eyebrow to tilting our heads. Now, a group

A famous viral video about the DARPA Robotics Challenge shows all sorts of humanoid robots clumsily falling down. Bipedal movement is rather unstable, which is not only a problem for a robot trying to complete its task, but also because falling can damage a very expensive piece of machinery. Roboticists across the globe are tackling

It would be amazing and terrifying if true – a ‘laser AK-47’ that can set fire to targets and clothing from 800 metres (half a mile) away. According to South China Morning Post, that’s exactly what researchers at a Chinese company called ZKZM Laser have developed. The newspaper claims that the rifle beam cannot be seen

A new study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute suggests that CT scans, commonly used in medical imaging, may increase the risk of brain tumors. The use of computed tomography (CT) scans has increased dramatically over the last two decades. CT scans greatly improve diagnostic capabilities (which improve clinical outcomes) but they deliver higher radiation
