Black phosphorus is new 'wonder material' for improving optical communication

Black phosphorus is new 'wonder material' for improving optical communication | Science technology and reaserch | Scoop.it
Phosphorus, a highly reactive element commonly found in match heads, tracer bullets, and fertilizers, can be turned into a stable crystalline form known as black phosphorus. In a new study, researchers from the University of Minnesota used an ultrathin black phosphorus film—only 20 layers of atoms—to ...

The sonic boom problem - Katerina Kaouri

The sonic boom problem - Katerina Kaouri | Science technology and reaserch | Scoop.it
Objects that fly faster than the speed of sound (like really fast planes) create a shock wave accompanied by a thunder-like noise: the sonic boom. These epic sounds can cause distress to people and animals and even damage nearby buildings. Katerina Kaouri details how scientists use math to predict sonic booms' paths in the atmosphere, where they will land, and how loud they will be.

Myths and misconceptions about evolution - Alex Gendler

Myths and misconceptions about evolution - Alex Gendler | Science technology and reaserch | Scoop.it
How does evolution really work? Actually, not how some of our common evolutionary metaphors would have us believe. For instance, it's species, not individual organisms, that adapt to produce evolution, and genes don't "want" to be passed on -- a gene can't want anything at all! Alex Gendler sets the record straight on the finer points of evolution.
