Increasing SSD Capacity With the Help of Sound
Instead of using heat to support an increase in storage density, the researchers said they can target ultrasound waves at a "highly specific region" and hold ... should allow us to marry the benefits of solid state electronics with magnetic recording ...
Phonon theory sheds light on liquid thermodynamics
Using phonons – quantized lattice vibrations that behave like particles – to develop a theory of specific heat is nothing new in the world of solids. After all, the atoms in a solid ... phonon modes available to transport heat and therefore the heat ...
Researchers demystify glasses by studying crystals
It is a metallic alloy consisting of equal parts of cobalt and iron. In a paper in the Nov ... the materials suddenly jump to a new, higher heat capacity zone, often 100 percent higher, and change from a solid material to a very viscous liquid.
Hawaii Heat from Natural Radioactivity
Natural radioactivity was ... core is now believed to be solid iron and an outer core molten iron; there is a huge amount of energy released throughout most of the Earth's interior. Ever hear of or seen lava? Since heat always flows from high to low ...
