Understanding Cryptocurrencies

Unlike paper currencies, cryptocurrencies are decentralized i.e there is no central authority that issues, controls or overlooks them. “Block chain” is the underlying technology and the security of cryptocurrencies are backed by computer encryption algorithms like hashing and cryptography giving them the adjective “crypto”-currency. Start-ups are keen on utilizing this as an investing tool which […]

Mohali’s IISER develops the coldest refrigerator using cryogenic technology, a great leap for Quantum computing

Scientists at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Mohali, have used cryogenic technology to achieve a low temperature of 10 milliKelvin or -272.99 degrees Celsius, slightly toasty than the extremely cold world of space where the temperature is as low as 2 milliKelvin (-273.148 degrees Celsius). The temperature achieved by the institute […]

Scientists at S N Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences show Space-time induces neutrino oscillations

Professor Amitabha Lahiri of S N Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences (SNBNCBS) showed in a paper published along with Subhasish Chakrabarty, his student, that the geometry of space-time can cause neutrino oscillations through quantum effects even if neutrinos are massless. It was published in the journal ‘European Physical Journal C’. SNBNCBS is an autonomous […]
