New Probe Developed for Improved High Resolution Measurement of Brain Temperature
New Probe Developed for Improved High Resolution Measurement of Brain Temperature
The brain is the most temperature-sensitive organ in the body. Even small deviations in brain temperature are capable of producing profound effects�including behavioral changes, cell toxicity, and neuronal cell death. The problem faced by researchers a...
Could Optical Clocks Redefine the Length of a Second?
Could Optical Clocks Redefine the Length of a Second?
GPS-based navigation, communication systems, electrical power grids and financial networks all rely on the precise time kept by a network of around 500 atomic clocks located around the world.
Dense Yet Transparent Materials offer New Way to Control Light
Dense Yet Transparent Materials offer New Way to Control Light
Researchers recently made the surprising discovery that a special class of materials called �hyperuniform materials� can be both dense and transparent. This work demonstrates a new way to control light and could lead to novel materials for many light-b...
