DeathRattleSports.comTaming 'wild' #electrons in #grapheneDeathRattleSports.comUntil now, that is. Scientists at Rutgers University-New Brunswick have learned how to tame the unruly electrons in graphene, #paving the way for the ultra-fast transport of electrons with low loss of energy in novel systems. Their study was published ...and read more...

Some of the earliest #galaxies were small, faint ?puffballs? that nonetheless contained many hot, bright stars. And astronomers at the University of Texas at Austin are using light from those galaxies to learn about a key era in the universe?s evolution. A few hundred thousand years after the Big Bang, protons and electrons #began linking up to make hydrogen #atoms. The atoms had no electric charge, so they emitted no energy. The first stars and galaxies began to form then, but they were embedded within this ?fog? of neutral gas ? an epoch known as the Dark Ages. By read more...

A 60-year-old mystery regarding the source of some #energetic and potentially damaging particles in Earth?s #radiation belts is now solved using data from a shoebox-sized satellite built and operated by CU Boulder students.The results from the new study indicate energetic electrons in Earth?s inner radiation belt?primarily near its inner edge?are created by cosmic rays born from explosions of supernovas, said the study?s lead author, Professor Xinlin Li of CU Boulder?s Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP). Earth?s radiation belts, known as the Van Allen belts, are layers of read more...

The space high above Earth may seem empty, but it?s a carnival packed with #magnetic field lines and high-energy #particles. This region is known as the magnetosphere and, every day, charged particles put on a show as they dart and dive through it. Like tiny tightrope walkers, the high-energy #electrons follow the magnetic field lines. Sometimes, such as during an event called magnetic reconnection where the lines explosively collide, the particles are shot off their trajectories, as if they were fired from a cannon.Since these acts can?t be seen by the naked eye, NASA uses specially designed read more...
