Quantum holograms as atomic scale memory keepsake

Study demonstrates that quantum holograms could be a candidate for becoming quantum information memory

23-10-2014

Russian scientists have developed a theoretical model of quantum memory for light, adapting the concept of a hologram to a quantum system. These findings from Anton Vetlugin and Ivan Sokolov from St. Petersburg State University in Russia are published in a study in EPJD. The authors demonstrate ...

Getting the salt out

Study shows electrodialysis can provide cost-effective treatment of salty water from fracked wells

23-10-2014

The boom in oil and gas produced through hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is seen as a boon for meeting U.S. energy needs. But one byproduct of the process is millions of gallons of water that's much saltier than seawater, after leaching salts from rocks deep below the surface. Now researchers ...

Physicists render usable method for detecting extremely rare inert gas isotopes for water dating

17-10-2014

In the earth and environmental sciences, radioactive isotopes, atom variants that decay over time, play a major role in age determination. A radioactive isotope of the inert gas argon (39Ar), for example, is used to determine the age of water or ice. Such isotopes are extremely rare, however – ...
