An international team led by Japanese scientists has generated significant findings that highlight the impact of high-latitude dust on the conversion of water droplets in clouds into ice—or glaciation—within low-level clouds in the Arctic region. These results contribute to a better understanding of factors at the land surface and how they affect cloud formations. The research findings also add to a better understanding of how climate is affected by clouds, which are increasingly considered to be among the most important, yet most complex, regulators of the global climate. Depending on the conditions, clouds either enhance warming or cool the climate by trapping heat or reflecting sunlight back into space, respectively.

16:14 Yahoo ScienceWorld s Largest Atom Smasher May Have Just Found Evidence for Why Our Universe Exists

For the first time ever, physicists at the world's largest atom smasher have observed differences in the decay of particles and antiparticles containing a basic building block of matter, called the charm quark.The finding could help explain the mystery of why matter exists at all."It's a historic milestone," said Sheldon Stone, a professor of physics at Syracuse University and one of the collaborators on the new research. Matter and antimatterEvery particle of matter has an antiparticle, which is identical in mass but with an opposite electrical charge. When matter and antimatter meet, they annihilate one another. That's a problem. The Big Bang should have created an equivalent amount of matter and antimatter, and all of those particles should have destroyed each other rapidly, leaving nothing behind but pure energy.

The measurement technique focuses on how efficiently QDs re-emit the light they absorb. The results suggest that, contrary to long-standing concerns, QDs are defect-tolerant and their emission is comparable to the best single-crystal emissions. “It was surprising that a film with many potential defects is as good as the most perfect semiconductor you can make,” said professor Alberto Salleo.  A close-up artist’s rendering of quantum dots emitting light they’ve absorbed.

Scientists at the Niels Bohr Institute have realized the swap of electron spins between distant quantum dots. This is significant for future quantum communications because it will allow the distance between the quantum dots to be large enough for integration with traditional microelectronics and, perhaps, a future quantum computer. The Copenhagen team collaborated with researchers at Purdue University and the University of Sydney to make the discovery. One method of storing and exchanging quantum information is through electron spin states, where the electrons’ charge and spin is manipulated by gate-voltage pulses. It was believed that this method can only work if quantum dots touch each other. If the dots are squeezed too close together, the spins will react too violently; if placed too far apart, the spins will interact too slowly. Both fast spin exchange and enough room

Osten’s research work is focused on new concepts for industrial inspection and metrology by combining modern principles of optical metrology, sensor technology, and digital image processing. Special attention is directed to the development of digital optical technologies such as digital holography and resolution-enhanced technologies for the investigation of micro- and nanostructures. Ursula Gibson, OSA president, said Osten “richly deserves recognition” for his work in industrial inspection and metrology. “Working at the frontier of optical metrology, Wolfgang Osten has brought new concepts to industrial inspection
