Epoxies date back to the 1930s, when a Swiss researcher was experimenting with materials to use in making dentures.Since then, these versatile compounds have served as adhesives, coatings, and structural resins in everything from surfboards to airplane frames—wherever toughness and durability really matter.J-B Weld adhesive was invented by a truck mechanic as an alternative to torch welding, but this staple of DIY toolkits and Car Talk punch lines will form an industrial-strength bond on many surfaces.The resin in J-B Weld epoxy is bisphenol-A yep, that BPA combined with garlicky-smelling epichlorohydrin.Chemically, the molecule is a chain with little carbon-and-oxygen triangles, called epoxide rings, on the ends.It s added to the resin for body and viscosity, without which the goop would be too fluid to adhere and set properly—more like J-B Melt.
Cosmic rays may be bonking neutrons off barium to cook the xenon in Mars' atmosphere.Mars' atmosphere is wafting up from its cold, dead soil, according to new findings from the Curiosity Rover.A new paper titled In situ measurement of atmospheric krypton and xenon on Mars with Mars Science Laboratory explains that this story starts with the Viking landers, which recorded krypton and xenon detections and measurements of noble gas isotope ratios in martian meteorites.Curiosity's got rather better kit on board than Viking.In particular there's the Sample Analysis at Mars SAM instrument suite that's sniffed the martian atmosphere to figure out how much krypton and xenon is wafting about.That analysis, NASA explains, found isotope ratios … a bit different than expected.
p With the exception of whatever weird shit humans are doing, lactation continues to be the source of food for all baby mammals on this nipple-sucking (or skin-licking) planet.When it comes down to how long mammals nurse for, though, orangutans hold the record: Six to eight years.But using a technique that analyses teeth like ice cores, they found surprising complexity and important data in orangutan nursing patterns.“Form a conservation perspective it’s important information, the study’s first author and associate professor Tanya Smith from Griffith University in Australia told Gizmodo.The researchers reached their conclusions by cutting slices of four immature orangutans’ teeth, looking specifically at the amount of barium the teeth accumulated over time.They published their most recent results in the journal Scientific Advances today.
The early morning hours on the US east coast might be unusually colorful Friday, as NASA plans to produce artificial blue-green and red clouds that may be visible from New York to North Carolina.It's not the launch of a new era of geoengineering or a bizarre upper-atmospheric art project.It's a test of a new system that helps scientists study the auroras and ionosphere.A NASA sounding rocket (a small, sub-orbital rocket often used in research) will launch from Wallops Flight Facility off the coast of Virginia and release several soda-sized canisters of vapor tracers in the upper atmosphere that may appear as colorful clouds.The tracers use vapors made up of lithium, barium and tri-methyl aluminum that react with other elements in the atmosphere to glow, letting researchers visually track the flows of ionized and neutral particles.It's a bit like being able to dye the wind or ocean currents to be able to get a visual picture.
The US space organization tonight will try, yet again, to launch a rocket from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia to make fake clouds along the East Coast.ET -- is to test a new system that helps scientists study auroras and the ionosphere.If the launch goes as planned, a NASA sounding rocket (a small, sub-orbital rocket often used in research) will release several soda-sized canisters of vapor tracers in the upper atmosphere that may appear as colorful clouds.The clouds may be visible from New York to North Carolina and westward to Charlottesville, Virginia.The tracers use vapors made up of lithium, barium and tri-methyl aluminum that react with other elements in the atmosphere to glow, letting researchers visually track the flows of ionized and neutral particles.It's a bit like being able to dye the wind or ocean currents to be able to get a visual picture.
Sony – thank you for the tape you gave to meIBM has claimed its fifth-in-succession world tape density record with a 330TB raw capacity technology using Sony tape media tech.Back in April, 2015 IBM and Fujitsu demonstrated a 123 billion bits/in2 220TB tape using so-called Nanocubic technology and barium ferrite tape media.This time around, IBM's tape drive researchers are working with Sony Storage Media Solutions and its sputtered media.Engineering developments have enabled an areal density of 201Gb/in2.New signal-processing algorithms for the data channel, based on noise-predictive detection principles, enabling reliable operation at a linear density of 818,000 bits per inch with an ultra-narrow 48nm-wide tunnelling magneto-resistive (TMR) reader.
The results of a research group from the Institute of Physics at the University of Freiburg has been given a special place in the Nature Photonics journal: an accompanying "News & Views" article in the print version of the science journal highlights the work of the team led by Alexander Lambrecht, Julian Schmidt, Dr. Leon Karpa and Prof. Dr. Tobias Schätz.In their article "Long lifetimes and effective isolation of ions in optical and electrostatic traps", the work group describes the method they used to prevent the previously unavoidable driven motion of trapped charged atoms.The experiment begins by trapping individual Barium ions in a quadrupole ion trap, known as a Paul trap.However this results in the ion constantly swirling on a microscopic scale and executing a forced driven motion.This often leads to undesirable side-effects.For example, in current experiments with ultracold atoms, the ions heat up the bath of neutral atoms - which is actually far cooler - like an immersion heater, instead of being cooled.
Plastic in older toys could pose a risk to children’s health, according to hew research.Scientists from the University of Plymouth analysed 200 used plastic toys - cars, trains, construction products and figures - found in homes, nurseries and charity shops across the South West of England.They discovered high concentrations of “hazardous elements” (antimony, barium, bromine, cadmium, chromium, lead and selenium), which are toxic to children at low levels over an extended period of time.“This is the first systematic investigation of hazardous elements in secondhand plastic toys in the UK,” said lead author Dr Andrew Turner.“Secondhand toys are an attractive option to families because they can be inherited directly from friends or relatives or obtained cheaply and readily from charity stores, flea markets and the internet.”Further tests of the toys showed that under simulated stomach conditions (basically artificially replicating a stomach), several toys released quantities of the chemicals bromine, cadmium or lead that exceeded limits set by the European Council’s Toy Safety Directive.
Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) have discovered that a catalyst of calcium amide with a small amount of added barium (Ba-Ca(NH2)2) with ruthenium nanoparticles immobilized onto it can synthesize ammonia at an efficiency 100 times greater than that of conventional ruthenium catalysts at low temperatures below 300ºC.The performance of this catalyst is also several times higher when compared to iron catalysts currently being used industrially.Ammonia is a raw ingredient for nitrogen fertilizers and is a key to food production.It is one of the chemicals most produced to support human life.Because it becomes a liquid at room temperature at a pressure of 10 atmospheres, it is also receiving attention as an energy carrier for "hydrogen," the energy source for technologies such as fuel cells.The Haber-Bosch process, the current industrial ammonia synthesis method (established in 1913) uses a catalyst made mainly of iron and requires high temperatures (400 to 500ºC) and high pressures (100 to 300 atm).
When cooled to a certain temperature and with certain concentrations of barium, LBCO is known to conduct electricity without resistance, but now there is evidence that a superconducting state actually occurs above this temperature too.It was just a matter of using the right tool--in this case, high-intensity pulses of infrared light--to be able to see it.Reported in a paper published in the Feb. 2 issue of Science, the team's finding provides further insight into the decades-long mystery of superconductivity in LBCO and similar compounds containing copper and oxygen layers sandwiched between other elements.These "cuprates" become superconducting at relatively higher temperatures than traditional superconductors, which must be frozen to near absolute zero (minus 459 degrees Fahrenheit) before their electrons can flow through them at 100-percent efficiency.Understanding why cuprates behave the way they do could help scientists design better high-temperature superconductors, eliminating the cost of expensive cooling systems and improving the efficiency of power generation, transmission, and distribution.In order for LBCO to become superconducting, the individual electrons in these stripes need to be able to pair up and move in unison throughout the material.
Piezoelectric materials, which generate an electric current when compressed or stretched, are familiar and widely used: think of lighters that spark when you press a switch, but also microphones, sensors, motors and all kinds of other devices.Now a group of physicists has found a material with a similar property, but for magnetism.This "piezomagnetic" material changes its magnetic properties when put under mechanical strain."Piezomagnetic materials are rarely found in nature, as far as I'm aware," said Nicholas Curro, professor of physics at UC Davis and senior author of a paper on the discovery published March 13 in the journal Nature Communications.Curro and colleagues were studying a barium-iron-arsenic compound, BaFe2As2, that can act as a superconductor at temperatures of about 25 Kelvin when doped with small amounts of other elements.This type of iron-based superconductor is interesting because although it has to be kept pretty cold to work, it could be stretched into wires or cables.
UTA researchers are leading an international team developing a new device that could enable physicists to take the next step toward a greater understanding of the neutrino, a subatomic particle that may offer an answer to the lingering mystery of the universe's matter-antimatter imbalance.But if matter and antimatter are produced equally, then all of the matter created in the early universe should have been cancelled out by equal amounts of antimatter, eliminating existence itself instantly.To explain this asymmetry, some particle physicists claim that the tiny subatomic particle, the neutrino, and its antimatter particle, the antineutrino, are in fact the same particle.UTA researchers are now taking advantage of a biochemistry technique that uses fluorescence to detect ions to identify the product of a radioactive decay called neutrinoless double-beta decay that would demonstrate that the neutrino is its own antiparticle.Radioactive decay is the breakdown of an atomic nucleus releasing energy and matter from the nucleus.To find this neutrinoless double-beta decay, scientists are looking at a very rare event that occurs about once a year, when a xenon atom decays and converts to barium.
WASHINGTON -- In a new study, researchers showed that using sound waves to levitate droplets of water in midair can improve the detection of harmful heavy metal contaminants such as lead and mercury in water.Detecting small amounts of heavy metals in water is important because these contaminants are harmful to human health and the environment.The new technique could eventually lead to instruments that perform real-time, on-site contaminant monitoring, which could help prevent future lead contamination problems like the Flint, Michigan, water crisis or detect contaminated wastewater from industrial sites."Despite the large variety of water sensors that offer continual monitoring, detection of multiple heavy metals dissolved in water can only be performed by sending samples off for specialized laboratory analysis," said the research team leader Victor Contreras, from Instituto de Ciencias Físicas UNAM, Mexico.In The Optical Society (OSA) journal Optics Letters, the researchers detail their new approach, which uses a sensitive technique known as laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) to analyze heavy metals present in levitating drops of water.The researchers showed that their new approach can reliably detect very low levels of the heavy metals like barium, cadmium and mercury with analysis times of just a few minutes.
Researchers said Chinese intelligence officers are behind almost a decade's worth of network intrusions that use advanced malware to penetrate software and gaming companies in the US, Europe, Russia, and elsewhere.Researchers from various security organizations have used a variety of names to assign responsibility for the hacks, including LEAD, BARIUM, Wicked Panda, GREF, PassCV, Axiom, and Winnti.According to a 49-page report published Thursday, all of the attacks are the work of Chinese government's intelligence apparatus, which the report's authors dub the Winnti Umbrella.Researchers from 401TRG, the threat research and analysis team at security company ProtectWise, based the attribution on common network infrastructure, tactics, techniques, and procedures used in the attacks as well as operational security mistakes that revealed the possible location of individual members.In 2013, antivirus company Kaspersky Lab reported that hackers using computers with Chinese and Korean language configurations used a backdoor dubbed Winnti to infect more than 30 online video game companies over the previous four years.The attackers used their unauthorized access to obtain digital certificates that were later exploited to sign malware used in campaigns targeting other industries and political activists.

Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology have developed a ruthenium-based perovskite catalyst that shows strong activity even at low temperatures (down to 313 K).The oxidation of sulfides is a commercially important process with broad applications ranging from chemicals production to environmental management.A research group led by Keigo Kamata and Michikazu Hara of Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) has succeeded in developing a barium ruthenate (BaRuO3) perovskite -- the first catalyst of its kind shown to be capable of the selective oxidation of sulfides under mild conditions, with molecular oxygen (O2) as the only oxidant and without the need for additives.Firstly, it exhibits high performance even at 313 K, a temperature much lower than the 373-423 K range reported in previous systems including other ruthenium- and manganese-based catalysts.Secondly, its high rate of oxygen transfer indicates that it has many potential uses; for example, it is applicable to the oxidative desulfurization of dibenzothiophene, which can produce a 99% yield of pure sulfone.The achievement overcomes several classic limitations, such as the need for additives, toxic reagents and high reaction temperatures to achieve good catalytic performance.
