A staple in horror movies, flickering lights can also summon potential human health and productivity concerns. PNNL studied hand-held meters that measure flicker, and the results could improve future measurement and lighting strategies.
Researchers have come up with a new method for creating synthetic “colored” nanodiamonds, a step on the path to realization of quantum computing, which promises to solve problems far beyond the abilities of current supercomputers.
Mama and calf humpback whales—considered a vulnerable species that might be entangled in underwater equipment—star in a new animation video that depicts the marine mammals’ scale and movements relative to floating offshore wind farms.
A recent study pinpointed the reaction front where lithium (Li) dendrites can come into contact with cathode materials. It also detailed the Li propagation pathway and reaction steps that lead to cathode failure.
