Study models new method to accelerate nanoparticles

ScienceDaily.com: Nanotechnology News - 23 августа, 2019 - 16:48
Researchers have modeled a method to manipulate nanoparticles as an alternative mode of propulsion for tiny spacecraft that require very small levels of thrust. The team simulated a system that uses light to generate an electromagnetic field to move the particles from a reservoir, funneled through an injector, then shot out of an accelerator to produce thrust.

First microscopic look at a tiny phenomenon with big potential implications

ScienceDaily.com: Nanotechnology News - 22 августа, 2019 - 16:40
Matter behaves differently when it's tiny. At the nanoscale, electric current cuts through mountains of particles, spinning them into vortexes that can be used intentionally in quantum computing. The particles arrange themselves into a topological map, but the lines blur as electrons merge into indistinguishable quasiparticles with shifting properties. The trick is learning how to control such changeable materials.
