they should throw some carbon nanotubes in there, that'll make it work better right

Scientific realism is bullshit, Bas van Fraassen all the way.

It's been awhile, but this article caught my eye.

It's a little misleading - as if Uranium could be made non-radioactive. However, there is a great deal of U238 left over from the enrichment process that is useless for anything other than a curiosity. There are catalytic compounds that use uranium, and of course for science experriments on radioactivity, but this is a real, honest-to-goodness opportunity to radically shrink the physical size - or increase the capacity - of mass storage media. It's not yet ready for commercialization (as if!) but there is potential for some serious speculators in the IT marketplace with some excess capital to make a go at developing the technology.

Know anybody? :D

Wouldn't it be usable in a cloud facility where people don't generally hang out?

Superlasers firing into a Uranium harddrive? Yes, please.

It may look a little fishy, but a Greek energy company is sponsoring a 1 megawatt pilot plant as a prelude to commercialization. And as for the "unknown compound" BS - well if they said what it was, they would jeopardize any patent protection. The investors have been given some information, but they have also signed agreements preventing disclosure.

Personally, I wonder what ConEd or Exxon is thinking right now.

Or in a thumb drive with shielding? I'm still a little unclear on how much reduction in spatial size is possible.

And I FFT's.

Some of you might remember Camacazio who used to post here, but you may not know that he is a fucking sweet physicist. Well he is THE GUY for fastest cold ion transport, so made this artist rendition of the achievement for him to use in his presentation today.

ITS FUNNY BECAUSE SOMETHING THAT SMALL COULDN'T POSSIBLY BE COVERED IN ICE LET ALONE A ROCKET LOLOLOL

Star Trek physics has taken a small step forward.

I especially like the first phrase "Trapping antihydrogen atoms at [CERN] has become so routine ..."

The articles I'm finding on ion transport are mostly involved with ITER and/or PPPL - and they're about 2 years old. Newer articles are jealously guarded by their publishers to the tune of between 25 and 40 bucks per.

Can you provide a little more information so I can figure out what the heck he's doing? Maybe for free?

He is getting ramped up to publish an article on it soon. Ion transport isn't what he's working on mainly I don't think, it was just a part of it. And I guess you need government clearance to know whats going on at this stage? He drops little hints about shooting lasers off eachother for a quantum computer they are developing, I don't know you'll have to wait until they go public. The place he works at is called NIST if that helps point you in the right direction at finding info.

Also I hope he doesn't read this thread because he'll scold me for my ignorance about things he's probably told me about but I'm getting them wrong right now. Also I don't want to seem like I am bragging on his behalf, I just wanted to show off my shitty graphic I whipped up this morning for him that is going to be witnessed by an entire physics dept as the representation of cold ion transport.

I-Mockery isn't for successful people. So I guess that's why he doesn't post anymore.

Me (11:37:20 AM): Are there any papers on this cold ion transport I can read
Me (11:37:33 AM): or are you writing one about it
camacazio (11:37:36 AM): only theory, and i haven't read one i like
camacazio (11:37:41 AM): mine will be the first experimental paper
camacazio (11:38:02 AM): but your picture shows the general idea

Me (11:38:29 AM): ah, okay, I know you'll show me it if you ever write one
camacazio (11:38:40 AM): yup!
camacazio (11:38:49 AM): well i'll have one by the summer's end

Thanks. NIST is a big clue, and your description is another. I think I know what to look for now. I'll let you know.

If they don't "back trace" my inquiries and the men in black come and get me, that is.

I'd guess that he's working in the PML division of NIST, which is heavily involved with developing quantum computing using ultracold materials known as Bose-Einstein Condenstates (BEC's). I may also be completely wrong, and if so, I never said any of this.

Does he know Dr. Carl Weiman?

If you could, it wouldn't be very hot.

Not personally, but I'm pretty familar with his work, and I've worked with people who have worked with him. The university campus has a cute little nobel laureate sign with him, Eric Cornell, and John Hall listed. I trap single ions, our "temperature" is excitations of vibrational quanta in the trap.
