Nanotech breakthrough: get ready for graphene. The exciting one-atom thick super material can now be produced in ample quantities and high quality.

Nanotech breakthrough: get ready for graphene

Rapid improvements in nanotechnology are now expected. Technology improvements are about to get dramatically ultra-fast. Exciting sustaining and disruptive innovations are on the way for just about every digital appliance, from touchscreen tablet computing to solar cells, according to a Science Daily report. Graphene is a new form of carbon, one atom in thickness, extremely strong and highly conducive.

High performance can be achieved with graphene transistors that can operate at much faster speeds and in higher heat conditions compared to current silicon chip technology. Read more... The result?

Physics. Elegant Universe, The: Einstein's Dream. Background Matter particles are only one part of the recipe for everything students see around them.

Elegant Universe, The: Einstein's Dream

The particles in matter must interact; otherwise the universe would just be one big collection of quarks and leptons. Particles, which undergo a number of interactions, are acted upon by four fundamental forces: gravity, electromagnetism, the strong force, and the weak force. In this activity, students will determine the interactions that are governed by each of these different forces. Objective To learn about the four fundamental forces and the interactions they govern. copy of the "Forces of Nature" student handout (PDF or HTML)copy of the "Finding Forces" student handout (PDF or HTML) * The relative strength of an interaction depends on the distance of separation of the particles. ** A secondary effect of the strong force—known as the residual strong force—binds together protons and neutrons, is experienced by hadrons, and is carried by mesons.

Why is almost no antimatter observed? Elegant Universe, The: Einstein's Dream. How to Say Hello in Different Languages. Steps Method 1 of 8: Saying Hello in a Non-Verbal Way 1Consider using a non-verbal greeting.

How to Say Hello in Different Languages

The most universal, non-verbal way to greet others is a simple handshake or wave, particularly in the English speaking world. However, other gestures such as various forms of bowing, embraces, or even applause are used as non-verbal greetings in other parts of the world. Always make sure you are not insulting anyone with uncommon gestures in that particular country. Method 2 of 8: Saying Hello in European Languages 1Say hello in Albanian: Hello in Albaian is Tungjatjeta, pronounced "toon-jah-TYEH-tah," which literally means "have a long life. " 46Say hello in Swedish: Hello in Swedish is god dag. Method 3 of 8: Saying Hello in Asian Languages. Mathematics. Carbon+nanotubes. Dana Ullman: How Homeopathic Medicines Work: Nanopharmacology At Its Best. It is commonly assumed that homeopathic medicines are composed of extremely small doses of medicinal substances.

Dana Ullman: How Homeopathic Medicines Work: Nanopharmacology At Its Best

And yet, does anyone refer to an atomic bomb as an extremely small dose of a bomb? In actual fact, there is a power, a very real power, in having atoms smash against each other. Homeopathic medicines are made through a specific pharmacological process of dilution and vigorous shaking. However, when skeptics say that there is nothing but water in homeopathic medicine, they are proving their ignorance, despite the incredible arrogance in which they make these assertions. Dr. It should be noted that a large number of homeopathic medicines sold in health food stores and pharmacies are made in doses with known physiological doses.

Homeopathic medicines can and should be considered to be a type of "nanopharmacology" (Ullman, 2006). The Power of Nano-doses For instance, it is commonly known that a certain species of moth can smell pheromones of its own species up to two miles away. Quantum Physics. Physics. Nanotech.
