Quantum Levitation: When Science Imitates Magic

Quantum Levitation: When Science Imitates Magic

FORA.tv (Nov. 16, 2012) In Oct 2011, Boaz Almog and Barak Deutscher from the superconductivity group at Tel-Aviv University lead by Prof. Guy Deutscher, demonstrated how a superconductor disk is trapped in a surrounding magnetic field, a phenomenon called "Quantum Levitation" or "Quantum Locking". By using the exceptional large scale superconductors produced by Mishael Azoulay, they are able to demonstrate a quantum effect that, although well known to physicists worldwide, was never seen and demonstrated this way. In addition to developing new superconductor technologies and applications, the superconductivity group in Tel-Aviv University is dedicated to teaching and educating the young and adults about superconductivity, through the unique and counter-intuitive phenomena of 'quantum locking' and 'quantum levitation'.

Dragonfly Backpacks to Probe Secrets of the Brain

Dragonfly Backpacks to Probe Secrets of the Brain

Reuters (Nov. 8, 2013) Scientists in the US are planning to map the brain activity of the dragonfly as it hunts, using a specially built backpack to transmit electrical signals from the insect's active neurons to a computer. The researchers believe that, if successful, their experiments could shed lite on how the human brain functions and how degenerative diseases like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's develop. Rob Muir reports.
