Volcanism is sometimes like food poisoning, where the Earth spews forth unstable material. New research from Michigan Technological University, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and ETH Zurich shows that a significant pulse of volatile carbon was released from the Earth’s mantle around 500 million years ago. But why?

Beyond Good Vibrations: New Insights into Metamaterial Magic

MetamaterialsNegativeRefraction.jpg

Metamaterials have amazing potential—think invisibility cloaks and perfect lenses—but they are more likely to be found in a Harry Potter novel than a lab. To help bring them closer to reality, researchers delved into the complex fundamental physics of metamaterials.
