Physics chemistry

- ATHENS, Ohio -- Today's computers and other technological gizmos operate on electronic charges, but researchers predict that a new generation of smaller, faster, more efficient devices could be developed based on another scientific concept -- electronic "spin." The problem, however, is that researchers have found it challenging to control or predict spin – which keeps practical applications out of reach. But physicists in Europe, California and at Ohio University now have found a way to manipulate the spin of an electron with a jolt of voltage from a battery, according to research findings published in the recent issue of the journal Physical Review Letters....   [tags: essays research papers]

Alternative Resources for Energy Instead of Fossil Fuels

- ... Solar power is a useful type of green energy. Wind energy is another alternative power resource. The Earth is unevenly heated so it causes hot air to rise and expand; the cooler air comes to fill in the space. This creates wind that the wind turbine can capture. The blades on the turbine are shaped so when blown on they spin. The blades and the hub that holds them are called the rotor (Spilsbury, Let's Discuss Energy Resources Wind Power 6). The rotor is mounted at the top of a tower called the nacelle (Spilsbury, Let's Discuss Energy Resources Wind Power 6)....   [tags: green energy, solar, wind, hydro]
