Piezoelectric effect used by US researchers to develop a wearable device that could generate energy from swing of an arm while walking or jogging

The US researchers have developed a wearable device that could generate energy from the swing of an arm while walking or jogging. The device, about the size of a wristwatch, produces enough power to run a personal health monitoring system. The prototype watch is apparently made from a crystal material, which can produce an electric ..

Rydberg Polarons

An international team of physicists have successfully created a giant atom and filled it with ordinary atoms, creating a new state of matter termed Rydberg polarons. The atoms are held together by a weak bond. They are created at very cold temperatures. This weakly bound state of matter is an exciting new possibility of investigating ..

Rydberg Polarons

An international team of physicists have successfully created a “giant atom” and filled it with ordinary atoms, creating a new state of matter termed “Rydberg polarons”. These atoms are held together by a weak bond and is created at very cold temperatures. It uses ideas from two different fields: Bose Einstein Condensation and Rydberg atoms. ..
