Detect problems with your Arduino projects

“This article was written by Per Tillisch, Tooling Team SW Engineer at Arduino. The Arduino team created a tool to check Arduino projects for common problems. Arduino Lint runs over 175 checks on your sketches, libraries, and boards platforms which …

Discovery of quantum behavior in insulators suggests possible new particle

“In a surprising discovery, Princeton physicists have observed an unexpected quantum behavior in an insulator made from a material called tungsten ditelluride. This phenomenon, known as quantum oscillation, is typically observed in metals rather than insulators, and its discovery offers …

Electrically switchable qubit can tune between storage and fast calculation modes

“To perform calculations, quantum computers need qubits to act as elementary building blocks that process and store information. Now, physicists have produced a new type of qubit that can be switched from a stable idle mode to a fast calculation …

Entangling electrons with heat

“Entanglement is key for quantum computing and communications technology; Aalto researchers can now extract entangled electrons using heat A joint group of scientists from Finland, Russia, China and the USA have demonstrated that temperature difference can be used to entangle …

EU must ‘move at speed’ on space broadband network

“The European Commission says it wants its newly proposed satellite mega-constellation to be offering some sort of initial service in 2024. The first priority is to fill in gaps in broadband coverage where ground infrastructure cannot reach, but later it …

Fast transport in carbon nanotube membranes could advance human health

“Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) researchers have discovered that carbon nanotube membrane pores could enable ultra-rapid dialysis processes that would greatly reduce treatment time for hemodialysis patients. The ability to separate molecular constituents in complex solutions is crucial to many …

Ferrofluid surface simulations go more than skin deep

“Computer models efficiently and accurately simulate the magnetic responses of ferrofluids by considering only the fluid’s surface. The spiky structure that erupts from the smooth surface of a ferrofluid when a magnet is brought close can be predicted more …

Fraunhofer IOF showcasing quantum technologies for communication and microscopy

“Highly secure communication and the latest microscopy for medicine: leading-edge technologies from the world of quanta will be presented by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF at the International Electronics Show CES 2021 ALL-DIGITAL from …

Gravitational Wave Search Finds Tantalizing New Clue

“An international team of scientists may be close to detecting faint ripples in space-time that fill the universe. Pairs of black holes billions of times more massive than the Sun may be circling one another, generating ripples in space itself …

Hanging by a colored thread

“High-performance fibres that have been exposed to high temperatures usually lose their mechanical properties undetected and, in the worst case, can tear precisely when lives depend on them. For example, safety ropes used by fire brigades or suspension ropes for …
