Hunt the HIGGS

You can Hunt the Higgs with physicist of CERN
More than two years after physicists discovered the Higgs boson, there’s still a lot they don’t know about the elusive particle. Now, they want your help to make the next discovery about this particle with a new citizen-science project called Higgs Hunters. That’s right, some of the brainiest physicists in the world would like you to pitch in.

The Higgs boson was discovered at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, the most powerful particle accelerator in the world. It may sound strange that even with this enormous, $5-billion machine, and all the scientific power applied to the data it collects, scientists still need people like you to help. But the human mind is still better than the most sophisticated algorithm at some tasks, and scouring the LHC data for more evidence of the Higgs is one of those. The data is created when the LHC slams together beams of protons careening at near-light-speed. When the particles collide, they produce a …

New State of matter : Dropletons

Image
There was a time when states of matter were simple: Solid, liquid, gas. Then came plasma, Bose -Einstein condensate, supercritical fluid and more. Now the list has grown by one more, with the unexpected discovery of a new state dubbed “dropletons” that bear some resemblance to liquids but occur under very different circumstances. The discovery occurred when a team at the University of Colorado Joint Institute for Lab Astrophysics were focusing laser light on gallium arsenide (GaAs) to create excitons. Excitons are formed when a photon strikes a material, particularly a semiconductor. If an electron is knocked loose, or excited, it leaves what is termed an “electron hole” behind. If the forces of other charges nearby keep the electron close enough to the hole to feel an attraction, a bound state forms known as an exciton. Excitons are called quasiparticles because the electrons and holes behave together as if they were a single particle.

Digital Cinema Distribution and Projection

Image
How it works Digital cinema has taken place of historical motion picture film projection. Nearly all the multiplex are using digital cinema projection technique now - a - days. Even a single screen theater like Galaxy (Rajkot ,gujrat [INDIA] ) is using the digital cinema projection.... 

In addition to the equipment already found in a film-based movie theatre a DCI-compliant digital cinema screen requires a digital projector and a computer known as a "server".


Movies are supplied to the theatre as a digital file called a Digital Cinema Package(DCP). For a typical feature film this file will be anywhere between 90 and 300GB of data (roughly two to six times the information of a Blu-ray disc) and may arrive as a physical delivery on a conventional computer hard-drive or via Currently (Dec 2013) physical deliveries are most common and have become the industry standard. Trailers arrive on a separate hard-drive and range between 200 and 400MB in size.

The First Image Ever of a Hydrogen Atom's Orbital Structure

Image
You’re looking at is the first direct look of an atom’s electron orbits which can be mathematically described by Atom's Real wave function! To take the photo, Scientists utilized A quantum microscope — an incredibly Innovative device that helps scientists to look into the quantum world.!

An orbital structure is the space in an atom that’s occupied by an electron. But describing these super-microscopic properties of matter, scientists have to depend on wave functions — a mathematical way of describing the quantum states of particles,  basically, quantum physicists use formulas like the Schrödinger equation to describe these states, often coming up with complex numbers and Strange graphs!

Up until this point, scientists have never been able to actually observe the electron orbit. Trying to get an atom’s exact position or the momentum of its alone electron direct observations have this obstacle of  quantum coherence. So to get a full quantum state We need tool that can statistically…

Quantum Link Between Photons That Don't Exist at the Same Time

Image
Physicists have long known that quantum mechanics tells a strange connection between quantum particles "Entanglement" In which measuring one particle can instantly set "state," of another particle—even if it's light years away. Now, experiments have shown that they can entangle two photons that don't even exist at the same time even.....!!!




Entanglement is a kind of order that leis within the uncertainty of quantum theory. Suppose you have a quantum particle of light, or photon. It can be polarized so that it either vertically or horizontally. The quantum realm is also hazed over with unavoidable uncertainty, and thanks to such quantum uncertainty, a photon can also be polarized vertically and horizontally at the same time. If you then measure the photon, however, you will find it either horizontally polarized or vertically polarized,




Entanglement can come in if you have two photons. Each can be put into the uncertain vertical-and-horizontal state. However, t…
