Warming up the world of superconductors

Clusters of aluminum metal atoms become superconductive at surprisingly high temperatures

27-Feb-2015

A superconductor that works at room temperature was long thought impossible, but scientists at USC may have discovered a family of materials that could make it reality. A team led by Vitaly Kresin, professor of physics at USC, found that aluminum "superatoms" - homogenous clusters of atoms - ...

Why a latte is less likely to spill than a coffee

Foam absorbs energy from sloshing liquids, Princeton scientists report in the journal Physics of Fluids

26-Feb-2015

Carrying a full cup of coffee from the kitchen to the dining room can be precarious for a sleepy-eyed caffeine addict who might accidentally send a wave of java sloshing over the rim. But add a bit of foam to the top and the trip becomes easier. Scientists have found that just a few layers of ...

Renewable energy obtained from wastewater

26-Feb-2015

Currently, there are treatments in which wastewater can flow out to the river or sea without causing any environmental problems. These technologies however entail high energy costs, mainly in aeration and pumping, and an elevated economic cost in treating the sludge left over from the treatment ...
