Bolometers are devices that measure the power of incident electromagnetic radiation thru the heating of materials, which exhibit a temperature-electric resistance dependence. These instruments are among the most sensitive detectors so far used for infrared radiation detection and are key tools for applications that range from advanced thermal imaging, night vision, infrared spectroscopy to observational astronomy, to name a few.


Even though they have proven to be excellent sensors for this specific range of radiation, the challenge lies in attaining high sensitivity, fast response time and strong light absorption, which not always are accomplished all together. Many studies have been conducted to obtain these higher-sensitivity bolometers by searching to reduce the size of the detector and thus increase the thermal response, and in doing so, they have found that graphene

Fastest Growing and Fastest Shrinking Small Cities in the U.S.

Whether or not the pandemic has led to a surge of city dwellers heading to the suburbs is still up for debate, but even before the virus, Americans were on the move.

Last year, the South, especially Florida, experienced a net population gain from those coming in from other regions of the U.S., according to the census bureau, and Los Angeles County had the highest number of people moving out, but also had the highest number moving in.

Population had declined steadily in Illinois for six consecutive years by 2019, according to Illinois Policy, the decline caused almost entirely by Illinoisans moving to other states. At the same time, the population of Utah is growing, reaching 3 million in 2015 and projected to reach 4 million in 2032, the University of Utah says.

Areas that are growing the most tend to be in states experiencing strong jobs growth while the

Rolls-Royce completes ground-testing of technology set to power the world’s fastest all-electric plane – sUAS News

Rolls-Royce has completed testing of the ground-breaking technology that will power the world’s fastest all-electric plane. All the technology has been tested on a full-scale replica of the plane’s core, called an ‘ionBird’, including a 500hp electric powertrain powerful enough to set world speed records and a battery with enough energy to supply 250 homes.

The plane is part of a Rolls-Royce initiative called ACCEL, short for ‘Accelerating the Electrification of Flight’. Our ACCEL project team includes key partners YASA, the electric motor and controller manufacturer, and aviation start-up Electroflight. The team has been developing the technology while adhering to the UK Government’s social distancing and other health guidelines and the systems will soon be integrated into our ‘Spirit of Innovation’ plane. There is a long history of iron-birds in aviation for testing propulsion systems ahead of flight, but in this case we have named the test airframe ‘ionBird’, after

Invesco’s QQQ lost $3.5 billion in one day

The tech-heavy fund, which tracks the Nasdaq 100, is suffering outflows after the sector’s massive rally over the past few months. The index just faced a third weekly loss and is on track for its worst month since 2008, a turnaround spurred by lofty valuations, persistent unemployment and a congressional stalemate on further stimulus.

Wi-Fi 6 is the fastest standard yet. Wi-Fi 6E will be even better

The Wi-Fi Alliance wants you to look for the Wi-Fi 6 logo.

Wi-Fi 6 is barely a toddler — now, Wi-Fi 6E is set to give the speedy standard an exclusive and massive swath of bandwidth.


Stephen Shankland/CNET

Speed is key with Wi-Fi, and the category has certainly been moving fast as of late. First came Wi-Fi 6, a brand-new, faster version of Wi-Fi that started hitting the market in 2019. Now, after a unanimous vote in April, the Federal Communications Commission is opening up an entire new band of spectrum to accommodate next-gen devices designed to tap into it. Devices like those are already on their way by the end of this year.
