The speech of sperm whales is similar to that of humans 18.05.2024

In the world of the ocean, where the mysterious and unknown coexists with the studied, sperm whales, with their huge brains, are of particular interest to science. Researchers, working with a huge array of audio recordings collected during the Dominica Sperm Whale Project (DSWP) - more than 8000 recordings, seek to unravel the secrets of their communication and understand the structure and complexity of the language of these mysterious creatures. By studying in detail the recordings of 60 sperm whales in the eastern Caribbean, scientists have revealed surprising features of their communication, revealing the complexity of their language. "Our observations indicate that these whales have a highly developed combinatorial communication system, including rubato and ornaments, which indicates their ability to quickly adapt and vary during communication. Despite significant differences in evolution, sperm whales have elements in their communication that are characteristic of human communication," says Shane Gero, a biologist at Carleton University and director of the CETI project.

Electron spin for quantum information transfer 18.05.2024

The transfer of quantum information remains one of the key tasks of modern science. Recent advances in the use of electron spin to expand the capabilities of information transfer in quantum systems have become very important. Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory are pushing the frontiers of quantum information science by experimenting with the possibilities of electron spin. Electron spin, a natural quantum bit, is a potentially powerful means for storing and transmitting information in quantum systems. Magnon wave packets, collective excitations of electron spin, have revealed their potential to transmit quantum information over significant distances. The work of Berkeley Lab researchers has revolutionized the way such excitations propagate in antiferromagnets, opening up new prospects for quantum technologies. Using pairs of laser pulses, scientists disrupted antiferromagnetic order in one place and simultaneously studied it in another, creating ... >>

Sound-absorbing silk 17.05.2024

In a world where noise is becoming increasingly intrusive, the emergence of innovative materials that can reduce its impact is of great interest. MIT researchers have unveiled a new sound-absorbing silk fabric that promises to revolutionize quiet spaces. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has made significant breakthroughs in the field of sound absorption. Researchers have developed a special silk fabric that can effectively absorb sound and create cozy, quiet environments. The fabric, thinner than a human hair, contains a unique vibrating fiber that is activated when voltage is applied to it. This feature allows the fabric to be used to suppress sound waves in two different ways. The first method uses fabric vibrations to generate sound waves that cover and cancel out unwanted noise, similar to noise-canceling headphones. This p ... >>

New windows regulate temperature and light 31.07.2002

In a few years, traditional glass and plastic windows will be replaced by liquid crystal structures that can independently regulate the temperature and degree of lighting in the premises.

A research team at Research Frontiers has created "chameleon" windows that are controlled by electrical signals. The new windows use a unique technology of light-absorbing microscopic particles - "light barriers". Millions of these particles are placed between transparent planes and have the ability to move freely.

The coating, which is like a film placed on top of them, is a conductor. When an electrical voltage is applied to the structure, the microparticles organize themselves in such a way that light can pass through the device unhindered. In the absence of voltage, the particles "disorganize" and the window becomes impenetrable. This technology can be used not only for windows, but also for ski goggles, car mirrors, etc.

According to the developers, their only competitors are manufacturers of liquid crystal and electrochromic windows. The current liquid-crystal window glass is considered one of the most "intimate", as it allows a milky-opaque lighting mode, when an illusion of thick fog is created that is comfortable for a person on a sunny day. A feature of a multilayer electrochromic window is that its light transmission depends on the behavior of the ionic layer, which is controlled by electrical voltage.

Electrochromic windows are so promising that, according to the forecasts of the US Department of Energy, industrial production of more formatted electrochromic glasses will begin this year, and their price in mass production will not exceed $15-20 per 1 m2.
