Focus Description:

The coin moves along the bottle.

Focus secret:

To demonstrate this trick, you will need a light coin and an empty plastic bottle.

Without the audience noticing, wet the neck of the bottle with water. Place the coin on the moistened neck of the bottle. Grasp the bottle with both hands. After some time, the coin will begin to move.

This trick is based on one of the basic laws of physics. The warmth of your hands warms the air inside the bottle, which expands and causes the coin to move as the expanded air seeks a way to escape.

Improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells 14.06.2024

The latest solar technology research represents a significant breakthrough in improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells. This method, based on the use of pulsed light, offers promise for simplifying the production and expanding the applications of these cells. A research team from the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology has developed an innovative method that uses pulsed light to improve the electrical conductivity of PbS solar cells. This method can significantly reduce the processing time required to achieve similar results. PbS quantum dot solar cells have significant potential in solar technology due to their photovoltaic properties. However, the formation of defects on their surface can reduce their performance. The new method helps suppress defect formation and improve electrical conductivity. Using strong light to complete the process ... >>

The battery is compatible with various fast charging protocols such as SCP, UFCS and PD, making it ideal for a wide range of devices. The power bank is also compatible with Huawei phones that support wireless charging. ... >>

Changes in a father's brain after the birth of a child 13.06.2024

A recent study conducted by scientists from the Hefei Institute of Physical Sciences of the Chinese Academy of Sciences found interesting changes in the brains of men after becoming fathers. These changes were associated with involvement in child care, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Scientists found that men who became fathers experienced a loss of brain volume after giving birth. This volume loss was associated with greater involvement in parenting, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Researchers have found significant changes in men's brains between the prenatal and postnatal periods. In particular, there was a loss of gray matter volume, especially in parts of the brain responsible for higher functions such as language, memory, problem solving and decision making. Men who paid more attention to their children and spent more time with them lost more gray matter in their brains. This also affected their mental health ... >>

Iron transparent to gamma radiation 28.07.2020

An international group of scientists has learned how to control high-frequency gamma radiation using low-frequency acoustic exposure.

Researchers have found that iron nuclei can be made transparent to the gamma rays they normally absorb. To do this, they use a new method of acoustically induced transparency (AIT). At present, hopes for such transformations are associated with the development of the short-wavelength part of the electromagnetic spectrum - the hard X-ray or soft gamma range.

X-ray and gamma radiation have found many applications in medicine, physics, chemistry, materials science and other sciences. However, most of the coherent optics methods used to control the resonant interaction of optical radiation with matter turn out to be inefficient or unrealizable in the gamma/X-ray range.

Scientists propose to influence the spectral characteristics of the nuclei with the help of acoustic vibration of the medium. In a demonstration experiment at room temperature, a 150-fold increase (from 5,5^10-3 to 0,82) was obtained for the first time in the resonant transmission of single photons with an energy of 25 keV by stainless steel foil 14,4 μm thick without spectral and temporal distortions.

By acting on an absorber containing Fe-57 nuclei using a piezoelectric transducer, it was possible to achieve that the optically dense absorber became transparent to resonant gamma rays. The absorber was attached to a piezoelectric transducer, which vibrated at a certain frequency and amplitude. At an oscillation amplitude corresponding to a modulation index of 2.4, the absorption of photons with an energy of 14,4 keV was suppressed by a factor of 148.
