This year’s Nobel prize in Physics is all about energy efficiency as it was awarded to three Japanese scientists for their invention of the blue LED. This enabled the world to have super efficient LED light bulbs.
To GOOD : ” One German physicist, Harald Haas, has come up with a solution he calls “data through illumination” (…) by sending data through an LED lightbulb that varies in intensity faster than the human eye can follow.” ” It’s the same idea behind infrared remote controls, but far more powerful. Haas says his… Continue reading D-Light, data through illumination
After my article last week on the 10 reasons to support nuclear power I wanted to write about the future technologies (fast breeders, thorium and fusion) as I was ending my article on that very topic. But before doing that I would like to provide you this week some historical insight on nuclear physics and… Continue reading Nuclear : Past and present
