Green spaces don't ensure biodiversity in urban areas

PhysOrg2 - 2 hours 18 min ago
Planting trees and creating green space in cities is good for attracting species, but it may not be enough to ensure biodiversity in built environments, a University of Iowa study has found.

A new generation of storage—ring

PhysOrg2 - 2 hours 22 min ago
A bright synchrotron source that emits over a wide part of the electromagnetic spectrum from the infrared to hard X-rays is currently being built in Lund, Sweden. The MAX IV facility presents a range of technical challenges for the team putting together its component parts in a storage - ring synchrotron system that will have a circumference of just a few hundred metres. Nevertheless, if these various challenges can be addressed then an entirely new class of experiments that require source brightness and transverse coherence will be possible.

There and back again: Extending optical storage lifetime by retrieving photon echoes from semiconductor spin excitations

Phys.Org - 2 hours 54 min ago
(Phys.org) —For all of their differences, classical and quantum communication have at least one thing in common: the importance of being able to store optical information. That being said, optical storage is a complex process that depends largely on the material being used to convert, store and retrieve this information in a controllable, consistent manner – a process especially prone to short optimal memory times when implemented in certain semiconductor quantum structures. Recently, however, scientists at Technische Universität Dortmund, Germany in collaboration with Saint Petersburg State University, Russia and Institute of Physics in Warsaw, Poland demonstrated magnetic-field-induced long-lived stimulated photon echoes1 – coherent optical phenomena in which resonant excitation of a medium by short optical pulses results in a delayed coherent optical flash response – in the electron–trion system, allowed the bidirectional coherent transfer of quantum information in a semiconductor between optical and spin excitations. (Trions are excitations comprising three charged quasiparticles – emergent phenomena that occur when a microscopically complex system, such as a solid, behaves as if it contained different weakly interacting particles in free space.)

Antares rocket explosion shows why it's hard to do science in space: Bob McDonald

CBC - 3 hours 12 min ago

Many scientists, engineers and students watched years of effort crash to the ground this week as the Antares Rocket plunged to the ground six seconds after launch. It shows that doing science in space is difficult, time-consuming and sometimes frustrating, writes Bob McDonald.
