The evolution of airplanes

July 22, 2014 3:39 pm | by EurekAlert! | News | Comments

One of the traditional arguments against Darwinian evolution has been that no one can confirm the process exists because it occurs on a time scale immensely greater than a human lifetime. Adrian Bejan, the J. A. Jones Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Duke University, has disagreed with that notion ever since 1996....

Quantum leap in lasers at Dartmouth brightens future for quantum computing

July 22, 2014 2:55 pm | by EurekAlert! | News | Comments

Dartmouth scientists and their colleagues have devised a breakthrough laser that uses a single artificial atom to generate and emit particles of light. The laser may play a crucial role in the development of quantum computers, which are predicted to eventually outperform today's most powerful supercomputers....

Technique simplifies the creation of high-tech crystals

July 22, 2014 2:42 pm | by EurekAlert! | News | Comments

Highly purified crystals that split light with uncanny precision are key parts of high-powered lenses, specialized optics and, potentially, computers that manipulate light instead of electricity. But producing these crystals by current techniques, such as etching them with a precise beam of electrons, is often extremely difficult and expensive....
