High-resolution digitiser helps in hunt for dark matter

To help explain the formation, evolution and behaviour of large-scale structures in the universe such as galaxies, scientists have predicted the existence of dark matter. In fact, theory suggests that the universe may actually contain up to five times more dark matter than ordinary matter!

Microwave spectrometer for interstellar research

Microwave spectroscopy is a very powerful tool for discovering molecular structures and operates at very low temperatures near absolute zero (1 to 5 Kelvin). The spectrometers generally either operate with high sensitivity over a very narrow bandwidth or a wide frequency with reduced sensitivity.

Software language accelerates developments in AI, medicine and robotics

The fight against the Coronavirus does not only take place in medical laboratories, but also in computing. Handling the huge amounts of data for vaccine development requires advanced tools: 'Julia', a relatively new software language, has surged in popularity. It delivers comparable speed and functionality to programming in C while also allowing scientific and numerical computing.

Mixed signal testing using modular PC instruments

Testing mixed signal devices requires both analogue and digital measurements. Analogue measurements, which acquire data samples with high amplitude resolution as a function of time, are used to test physical layer compliance with test standards, and digital measurements, which obtain data samples with single bit resolution versus time, assure data state as a function of time and permit evaluation of protocol content. Oliver Rovini - Technica...

AWG-card by Spectrum used to move around single atoms

How do you determine what is going on when you can’t actually see the components in the system you are investigating? This is the challenge when investigating the quantum behaviour of electrons in a lattice of ions. The solution being created by the Physics Department at the University of San Diego, California is to build a model that is slightly larger with observable components of single atoms moving in an optical lattice.
