Laser “pinging” shows promise for fast and cheap water testing

Posted by in category: sustainability

Looking for impurities in drinking water or other liquids typically involves chemical analysis, which may be time-consuming. Now, however, scientists have created an inexpensive system in which light – that’s converted to sound – is used to instantly determine if water is safe to drink.

Characterizing the ‘arrow of time’ in open quantum systems

Posted by in categories: particle physics, quantum physics

Even in the strange world of open quantum systems, the arrow of time points steadily forward—most of the time. New experiments conducted at Washington University in St. Louis compare the forward and reverse trajectories of superconducting circuits called qubits, and find that they follow the second law of thermodynamics. The research is published July 9 in the journal Physical Review Letters.

“When you look at a quantum system, the act of measuring usually changes the way it behaves,” said Kater Murch, associate professor of physics in Arts & Sciences. “Imagine shining light on a small particle. The photons end up pushing it around and there is a dynamic associated with the measurement process alone.

I’ll be speaking at Biohack the Planet this year

Posted by in category: futurism

I’m a actually really excited because I have a special surprise for everyone. Remember last year when I gave away all those stabs for free? This is even better.

How much better? I’m willing to smack a bunch of their links into my post here.

BTW, it’s in Vegas. I mean… C’mon.
