Why radio waves shine through paper but not light
Let's compare gamma rays and radio waves ... raise the electron to an excited state. What's more, that excited state will put the electron in a higher-energy level that already exists. (Only pre-existing authorized-for-that-atom levels will do.)
High-gain optical transistors flipped by just one photon
This time-consuming and energy-hungry process is necessary because photons do not readily interact with each ... which puts that atom into a highly excited Rydberg state with one electron in an extremely large orbital. The large distance between this ...
Solving electron transfer
Understanding the real-time impact of the solvent is crucial, because it directly affects the outcome and efficiency of electron-transfer chemical reactions. The experiment showed that the departure of the electron depends very much on the configuration of ...
SATA 6Gb/s on Your New Motherboard?
New motherboards are now on the market with "SATA 6Gb/s" controllers, but what does all this mean to the enthusiast ... USB 3.0 devices. We are excited to see Super-Speed USB 3.0 connected SATA 6GB/s external Solid State Disk drives, hopefully 1H11.
A Search For Excited Top Quarks In CMS Data
[In case you do not know what a single lepton final state is, here is what I mean ... for the signal of this excited state. The distributions obtained by CMS in the sub-samples of data where the lepton is a muon (left) or an electron (right) are shown ...
