A Simple Solution to Protect Critical Infrastructure

DHS S&T has a solution for stopping flooding in subway tunnels in the form of a giant inflatable plug that will seal them off and stop water from flowing throughout the subway system into stations and other subway lines.

Study Argues Cybersecurity Breaches Require Less Technology, More Attention

As network technologies reach deeper into our personal, professional, and even political lives, the threats posed by cybersecurity breaches grow in number and degree. This new study provides a unique, qualitative analysis for the detection of organizational vulnerabilities.

New Metrology Technique Measures Electric Fields

JAP022721-Holloway-AtomicVapor-NIST-AM-DRAFT1-Image1.jpg

Mobile phones and other wireless devices have become central features of life around the globe. It is crucial to the design and deployment of these devices that they have accurate and traceable measurements for electric fields and radiated power. Until recently, however, it was not possible to build self-calibrating probes that could generate independent and absolute measurements of these electric field values. To address this problem, researchers have developed a new method to measure electric fields and a new probe to carry out such measurements. They share their work this week in the Journal of Applied Physics.

To Connect Biology with Electronics, Be Rigid, Yet Flexible

Fig2B.jpg

Scientists have measured a thin film made of a single type of conjugated polymer — a conducting plastic — as it interacted with ions and electrons. They show how there are rigid and non-rigid regions of the film, and that these regions could accommodate electrons or ions — but not both equally.
