WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fractal Antenna Systems has filed a patent on 'metatransfer' technology for better method of ‘heat transfer’ using Fractal metamaterials.
An international team of scientists, including a University of York researcher, has carried out ground-breaking experiments to investigate the atomic structure of astatine (Z=85), the rarest naturally occurring element on Earth.
Elsevier Ltd is not responsible for the content of external websites. By means of special metamaterials, light and sound can be passed around objects. KIT researchers now succeeded in demonstrating that the same materials can also be used to specifically influence the propagation of heat.
(Phys.org) —Today, Los Alamos National Laboratory announced that for the first time, irradiated uranium fuel has been recycled and reused for molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) production, with virtually no losses in Mo-99 yields or uranium recovery. This demonstrates the viability of the separation process, as well as the potential for environmentally- and...

This method is based on the direct doping of dielectric matrices with plasmonic nanoparticles and enables the fabrication of volumetric three-dimensional materials through a non-chemical/direct process. The concept is based on utilising matrices with lower melting temperatures than those of the admixed nanoparticles. In this way, a variety of nanoparticles—of several different sizes, shapes and chemical compositions—can be introduced into the matrix, even when other doping agents such as rare-earth ions are present. This method may enable manufacturing materials on-demand for particular applications.
