How to acquire ultraviolet induced fluorescence (UVIF) photos.

Ultraviolet induced fluorescence (UVIF) occurs when molecules in an object are excited (energized) by high energy ultraviolet wavelengths (from our UV flashlight) and as a result emit longer wavelengths in the visible portion of the spectrum (red, green, and blue). These longer wavelengths emitted are what we are photographing. This article is a short tutorial …

Antidepressants, antipsychotics and benzos all increase suicide attempts in a new study

A new study a JAMA network open found that antidepressants do not prevent suicide. The researchers concluded that antidepressants, antipsychotics and benzodiazepines were all associated with increased suicide attempts in people with borderline personality disorder (BPD). Mood stabilizers had no effect on suicide attempt rates. ADHD stimulant drugs were the only drug class associated with a decrease …

A new technique may help achieve mass production of fusion energy

  Dynamic shell formation was first demonstrated experimentally at the University of Rochester’s Laser Energetics Laboratory. Fusion, which replicates the same reaction that powers the sun, has long been seen as an ideal energy source due to its potential to be safe, clean, cheap and reliable. Since the early 1960s, scientists have pursued the possibility …

The first light that will flood the universe can help unravel the history of the cosmos. that’s how

Just as Charles Darwin once used the fossil record to tell the story of the evolution of life on Earth, astronomers are using the first light to shine in the universe to understand the events that shaped the cosmos. This early light is called the “Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB),” leftover radiation that spreads almost uniformly …

A look into the quantum realm: MIT physicists generate first snapshots of pairs of fermions

MIT physicists have successfully imaged the pairings of particles in a cloud of atoms, providing new insights into the behavior of electrons in superconducting materials. The discovery, documented in the journal Science, could help understand superconductivity and the further development of heatless electronics. (Artists concept.)   The images shed light on how electrons form superconducting …

Unraveling invisible particles: Physicists use water to detect neutrinos

For the first time ever, the SNO+ experiment demonstrated the ability to detect neutrinos emitted from a nuclear reactor located more than 240 km away using natural water. Science     Therefore, devices of immense size and high sensitivity are required to capture the tiny signals from neutrinos. The SNO+ experiment recently demonstrated that a …

Female physicists are not represented in the media and this lack of representation hurts the field of physics

Christopher Nolan Oppenheimer’s highly anticipated film, to be released July 21, 2023, depicts J. Robert Oppenheimer and his role in the development of the atomic bomb. But while the Manhattan Project wouldn’t have been possible without the work of many expert female scientists, the only women seen in the film’s trailer are hanging out the …
