Researchers patent a nanofluid that improves heat conductivity

Scientists have developed and patented a nanofluid improving thermal conductivity at temperatures up to 400 C without assuming an increase in costs or a remodeling of the infrastructure. This progress has important applications in sectors such as chemical, petrochemical and energy, thus becoming a useful technology in all industrial applications using heat transfer systems such as solar power plants, nuclear power plants, combined-cycle power plants and heating, among other.

Restoring order - A spin Hall effect without all the fuss

Scientists have developed a model for what happens when ultracold atomic spins are trapped in an optical lattice structure with a 'double-valley' feature, where the repeating unit resembles the letter W. This new theory result opens up a novel path for generating what?s known as the spin Hall effect, an important example of spin-transport.
