'Stealth' material hides hot objects from infrared eyes

Nanowerk research news - Fri, 2018-06-22 10:20
Infrared cameras are the heat-sensing eyes that help drones find their targets even in the dead of night or through heavy fog. Hiding from such detectors could become much easier, thanks to a new cloaking material that renders objects -- and people -- practically invisible.

The photoelectric effect in stereo

Nanowerk research news - Fri, 2018-06-22 10:11
In the photoelectric effect, a photon ejects an electron from a material. Researchers have now used attosecond laser pulses to measure the time evolution of this effect in molecules. From their results they can deduce the exact location of a photoionization event.

New research on avian response to wildfires

EurekAlert! Biology - Thu, 2018-06-21 21:00
(Point Blue Conservation Science) New research explores the effects fire has on ecosystems and the wildlife species that inhabit them. Scientists examined the impacts of fires of different severity levels on birds and how that changes as the time since fire increases. Scientists looked across 10 fires after they burned through forests in the Sierra Nevada. A key finding was that wildfire had strong, but varied, effects on the density of many of the bird species that were studied.
