On March 11, an instrument aboard the International Space Station detected an enormous explosion of X-ray light that grew to be six times as bright as the Crab Nebula, nearly 10,000 light years away from Earth. Scientists determined the source was a black hole caught in the midst of an outburst—an extreme phase in which a black hole can spew brilliant bursts of X-ray energy as it devours an avalanche of gas and dust from a nearby star.

17:22 Phys.orgArtificial intelligence detects the presence of viruses

Many biosensing applications rely on characterization of specific analytes such as proteins, viruses and bacteria, among many other targets, which can be accomplished by using micro- or nano-scale particles. In such biosensors, these particles are coated with a surface chemistry that makes them stick to the target analyte forming clusters in response. The higher the target analyte concentration is, the larger the number of clusters gets. Therefore, monitoring and characterizing these particle clusters can tell us if the target analyte is present in a sample and in what concentration. Current methods to perform such an analysis are limited in that they are either capable of only a coarse readout or rely on expensive and bulky microscopes, which limit their applicability to address different biosensing needs, especially in resource limited environments.

Researchers report an interesting phenomenon of two-dimensional (2D) hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN)-induced planar-alignment of a nematic liquid crystal and the subsequent optical and electro-optical effects. Liquid crystals (LCs) are optically anisotropic materials, and they are widely used in electro-optical display technology, known as liquid crystal displays (LCDs). Understanding the alignment phenomena of a nematic LC on a surface remains an important area of research, as the alignment process determines the LC?s molecular orientation and conformation - which influence the LC?s optical and electro-optical characteristics in LCDs.

However, transmission of a 360 VR video which is of a much larger size than a traditional video to mobile users brings a heavy burden to a wireless network. In this paper, we consider multi-quality multicast of a 360 VR video from a single server to multiple users using time division multiple access (TDMA). To improve transmission efficiency, tiling is adopted, and each tile is pre-encoded into multiple representations with different qualities.

22:11 Aps.org Editors' SuggestionsPhenomenological theory of heat transport in the fractional quantum Hall effect

Author(s): Amit Aharon-Steinberg, Yuval Oreg, and Ady Stern Experimental evidence shows that thermal transport in fractional quantum Hall (FQH) states involves energy loss to external degrees of freedom. However, so far, theory has disregarded this loss. Here, the authors construct and solve a phenomenological theory for heat transport in FQH states in the presence of these losses. The authors show that in contrast to the electric Hall conductance, the thermal Hall conductance is sensitive to this loss. They find the conditions for experimental extraction of the universal thermal Hall conductance for a FQH state, and the way this value quantitatively changes when the energy losses are not negligible.

22:11 Aps.org Editors' SuggestionsMechanochemically controlling the van der Waals gap in molybdenum disulfide nanosheets

Author(s): Vishnu Nair, Khagesh Kumar, and Chandramouli Subramaniam This paper demonstrates a very simple, cheap, and efficient method for synthesizing sodium intercalated MoS2 in the 2H phase. Bringing together nature abundant soft molybdenite with hard crystals of sodium chloride into a trivial mortar and pestle enables one to obtain this nanomaterial. Further, using time-dependent spectroscopy, the authors demonstrate how moisture assists this intercalation and how one can precisely tune the van der Waals spacing from 0.61 nm in molybdenite to 1.25 nm in their nanomaterial. Such a material holds immense promise in developing batteries and catalyst beds for hydrogen fuel production and desulphurization of petroleum.

22:01 ScienceDaily.comDifferent brain areas linked to smoking and drinking

Academics have found that low functional connectivity of the lateral orbitofrontal cortex that is associated with the tendency to smoke is associated with increased impulsiveness -- which may contribute to the tendency to smoke. The high connectivity of the reward-related medial orbitofrontal cortex in drinkers may increase the tendency to be attracted to the reward of alcohol consumption.
