Optical vs. Laser Mouse Digital Trends

Finding a mouse that achieves the perfect balance between sensitivity and accuracy might seem next to impossible. Laser-based mice offer high sensitivity, but they tend to cause jittering. On the flip side, optical mice use LED technology with lower sensitivity, allowing for more accurate movement. Choosing the best mouse for you can be a challenge.… Continue reading Optical vs. Laser Mouse Digital Trends

New Design Improves Efficiency of Next-Generation Perovskite Solar Cells

This image shows perovskite photovoltaics in the background with individual perovskite crystals shown as colorful units. Credit: CUBE3D Graphic Reducing internal losses could pave the way to low-cost perovskite-based photovoltaics that match silicon cells’ output. Perovskites are a leading candidate for eventually replacing silicon as the material of choice for solar panels. They offer the… Continue reading New Design Improves Efficiency of Next-Generation Perovskite Solar Cells

Reclusive Neutron Star May Have Been Found in Famous Supernova SN 1987A

Data from Chandra and NuSTAR provide evidence for the existence of a structure known as a “pulsar wind nebula” at the center of the Supernova 1987A (SN 1987A). A pulsar wind nebula is a cloud of charged particles and magnetic fields created by a rapidly spinning neutron star. If confirmed, this would be the culmination… Continue reading Reclusive Neutron Star May Have Been Found in Famous Supernova SN 1987A
