Popping Bubbles: Surfactants Have Surprising Effect on Nanobubble Stability

APL012735-Zhang-nanobubbles1.jpg

The stability of nanobubbles is well understood, but the mechanisms causing their eventual destabilization are still in question. Using molecular dynamics simulations, researchers in China explored the effect of surfactants -- components that lower surface tension -- on the stabilization of nanobubbles. They report their findings on the surprising mechanisms of destabilization for both soluble and insoluble surfactants this week in Applied Physics Letters.

Quantum Communications Bend to Our Needs

APL017737-Olbrich-photons.jpg

The potential for photon entanglement in quantum computing and communications has been known for decades. One issue impeding immediate application is that many photon entanglement platforms do not operate within the range used by most forms of telecommunication. Researchers have started to unravel the mysteries of entangled photons, demonstrating a new nanoscale technique that uses semiconductor quantum dots to bend photons to the wavelengths used by today’s popular C-band standards. They report their work in Applied Physics Letters.

Creative Use of Noise Brings Bio-Inspired Electronic Improvement

APL003739-Fujii-stochastic-resonance1.jpg

Researchers at Osaka University in Japan are working to exploit stochastic resonance to enhance signal transmission for a new generation of devices, using single-walled carbon nanotubes. They created a summing network SR device that detects subthreshold signals, fabricated to include a self-noise component. The researchers report their findings this week in the journal Applied Physics Letters.
