Transparent conductor proves to be an accurate distance meter

The researchers have measured this effect for different distances between the ITO layer and the light-emitting molecules. For this the researchers used atomic layer deposition with which a glass-like layer can be deposited on the ITO with atomic precision. The agreement between the experiment and the theoretical model was so strong that the researchers could very accurately determine the distance between

Scientists get first glimpse of black hole eating star, ejecting high-speed flare

An international team of astrophysicists led by a Johns Hopkins University scientist has for the first time witnessed a black hole swallowing a star and ejecting a flare of matter moving at nearly the speed of light

BL Lacertae – the hottest hearth in space

Microwave radiation is emitted from the direct vicinity of the black hole. This radiation was the focus of a combination of several radio telescopes, including the radiotelescope Spektr-R, the Effelsberg 100-meter antenna, and another 14 ground-based radio telescopes around the globe. The researchers combined all simultaneously recorded signals from all

Strong magnetic fields discovered in majority of stars

A group of astronomers led by the University of Sydney has discovered strong magnetic fields are common in stars, not rare as previously thought, which will dramatically impact our understanding of how stars evolve. The findings could potentially lead to a better understanding of the

The habitability of other worlds

A team of scientists have developed a new method which can be used to determine the gravity on the surface of distant stars, accurate to within a few percent. It also allows better determination of the size and the
