Astrocomb will Significantly Improve the Search for Extraterrestrial Life

The search for Earth-like planets will get a massive boost with the addition of Astrocomb in the planet-hunting telescope. The researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a customized frequency comb that is much more precise than the preceding technology. Astrocomb uses a spectrograph at the Hobby-Eberly Telescope to make…

Models of Earth could be Improved by using Atomic Clocks

Models of Earth could be Improved by using Atomic Clocks

The latest development, at NIST, on Atomic Clocks might result in a redefinition of Second, the international unit of time. A clock device that uses an Electron Transition Frequency in the Optical, Ultraviolet, and Microwave region of the electromagnetic spectrum of atoms for its timekeeping element is called an Atomic Clock. They are the most…

Artificial Intelligence accelerates discovery of Metallic Glass

Artificial Intelligence accelerates discovery of Metallic Glass

AI has accelerated the Discovery of Metallic Glass by 200 times. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has given this world a lot of revolutionary gifts and the list continues to grow as latest reports suggest that metallic glass is much nearer to us than we thought, thanks to AI. Alloys are pretty common these days and the…
