New shape memory alloy discovered through artificial intelligence framework

 Physics General News
 05 May 2022
Researchers used an Artificial Intelligence Materials Selection framework (AIMS) to discover a new shape memory alloy. The shape memory alloy showed the highest efficiency during operation achieved thus far for nickel-titanium-based materials. In addition, their data-driven framework offers proof of...

Scientists invent topological-cavity surface-emitting laser

 Physics General News
 05 May 2022
Semiconductor lasers are the most widely used lasers due to their compact size, high efficiency, low cost and wide spectra. But they suffer low output power and low beam quality—two specifications difficult to improve simultaneously. For example, although a larger cavity increases power, it supports...

Researchers create flat magic window with liquid crystals

For the first time, researchers have used liquid crystals to create a flat magic window—a transparent device that produces a hidden image when light shines on it. The technology represents a new twist on a very old light trick....

The quest for an ideal quantum bit

 Physics General News
 04 May 2022
Scientists have developed a qubit platform formed by freezing neon gas into a solid, spraying electrons from a light bulb's filament onto it, and trapping a single electron there. This system shows great promise as an ideal building block for quantum computers. ...
