Three interesting nuggets. The last one I particularly like as it seems to very much support my view of energy as an experience shared between material antennas and *not* a freestanding psuedosubstance of "photons".
Physicists find charge separation in a molecule consisting of two identical atoms November 25, 2011 "Electron density in a homonuclear molecule which behaves like a polar dimer molecule. The size of this molecule is more than 1000 times larger than usual molecules. Image: Science/AAAS "Physicists from the University of Stuttgart show the first experimental proof of a molecule consisting of two identical atoms that exhibits a permanent electric dipole moment. This observation contradicts the classical opinion described in many physics and chemistry textbooks. The work was published in the journal Science yesterday." http://www.physorg.com/news/2011-11-physicists-molecule-identical-atoms.html Researchers seeking the fourth property of electrons July 20, 2010 Juelich researchers want to demonstrate the electric dipole moment of the electron in cooperation with colleagues in the USA and the Czech Republic. Many physical theories presume its existence -- for example, some theories concerning the creation of the universe. In order to improve the precision of previous measurements, they have created a new ceramic material with the aid of the Juelich supercomputer JUROPA. Credit: Forschungszentrum Juelich Do electrons have a fourth property in addition to mass, charge and spin, as popular physics theories such as supersymmetry predict? Researchers from Germany, the Czech Republic and the USA want to find the answer to this fundamental question of physics. In order to improve the precision of previous measurements, they have created a new material with the aid of the Juelich supercomputer JUROPA. The scientists report on this in the current issue of Nature Materials. Blocked Holes Can Enhance Rather Than Stop Light Going Through Nov. 22, 2011 “We did not expect more light to get through,” Chou said. “We expected the metal to block the light completely.” Chou said the metal disk acts as a sort of “antenna” that picks up and radiates electromagnetic waves. In this case, the metal disks pick up light from one side of the hole and radiate it to the opposite side. The waves travel along the surface of the metal and leap from the hole to the cap, or vice versa depending on which way the light is traveling. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/11/111122133326.htm -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
