Helium ions open whole new world of materials

01-Mar-2018

They have illustrated their findings with the creation of nano 'sieves' that can help separate molecules down to an unprecedented size 10,000 times finer than a human hair. Professor Ostrikov, from QUT's Science and Engineering Faculty and Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation, said this ...

Quantum 'spooky action at a distance' becoming practical

09-Jan-2018

A team from Griffith's Centre for Quantum Dynamics in Australia have demonstrated how to rigorously test if pairs of photons - particles of light - display Einstein's "spooky action at a distance", even under adverse conditions that mimic those outside the lab. They demonstrated that the effect, ...

Financial decisions influenced by intensity of light

08-Aug-2017

A study of more than 2,500 people provides new evidence about the effects of luminance on the quality and consistency of our financial decision-making. Luminance is a measurement of the amount of light that falls on the earth's surface, which can be affected by cloud cover, humidity, suspended ...
