Study from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay and TIFR demonstrates a method to turn heat into usable spin current
An international team, including scientists from California Institute of Technology, USA, University of Oxford, UK, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Pune and several other universities from around the globe, are probing radio waves emanating from the source that the produced gravitational wave event GW170817. Their study could reveal more information about the events that cause gravitational waves and its aftermath.
Scientists from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, Université libre de Bruxelles- Institute of Neuroscience, Belgium, Indian Institute of Science, Education and Research, Pune and Sophia College for Women, Mumbai are now a step closer to understanding how the development of neural and glial cells – the two primary cell types in our brains – is regulated in a developing brain.
Born on 26th November, 1926, in Jhang, in undivided Punjab, Dr. Yash Pal was an Indian scientist, educator, science communicator and educationist. After completing his M.Sc. degree in Physics from Panjab University, he moved to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for his PhD. His areas of specialisation included cosmic rays.
In 1948, celebrated physicist and Nobel laureate, Richard Feynman introduced what came to be called Feynman diagrams. These were a pictorial representation of mathematical equations and served as a powerful tool in understanding and visualizing complex interactions between sub-atomic particles like protons and electrons. But this simplistic tool could not handle complex problems, where particles underwent many interactions, but instead produced incomprehensible and confounding answers, like infinities.
