Diploma started last week, it's really hard .. taking much time to study.

Trapping light

posted Dec 26, 2009, 9:17 AM by Ahmed Obaid

This ability to store light may lead to more efficient ways to communicate, as well as new ways to explore quantum mechanical properties such as entanglement.

Researchers knew that the information carried in light pulses could be transferred to clouds of ultracold atoms, called Bose-Einstein condensates. In this technique, a laser called a control laser prepares the atomic cloud for an incoming light beam. As the photons fly in, they leave an imprint in a subset of the atoms. This imprint, stored in a quantum property known as spin, contains all the relevant information needed to reconstitute the light beam. But the imprint is fragile and deteriorates in milliseconds. The light’s information is lost as other atoms in the cloud interfere with the imprint.
Researchers overcame this problem by sequestering the matter imprint from the rest of the atoms in the cloud.

Transferring information between light and atoms could one day lead to better communication networks.

The first Earth-like planet ever seen outside of the solar system has been discovered

posted Dec 13, 2009, 4:30 AM by Ahmed Obaid

The “super-Earth” is about seven times the mass of our own planet and appears to be composed of about 50 per cent water, an essential condition for organic life to survive.

Its discovery boosts the possibility that there are planets in neighbouring solar systems that meet all the criteria that scientists believe are needed to support living organisms.... MORE

It's a good day for design links

Yes it is, i've been wandering all around the web and all the links i was clicking were related to design.
I've updated few links in the links garden

About WAR

What is absurd and monstrous about war is that men who have no personal quarrel should be trained to murder one another in cold blood.

How come everyone supports war, when others have to fight it, but not when they do?

Just managed to reactivate my facebook account and convert its LONG url to just "facebook.com/iobad".

It's exciting to have a new thing to start, and having this web space really makes me much more anxious about what i'm about to do or even imagine to do online.
Sometimes i don't think about it as a simple website rather than another home for me and my thoughts!.

It's a new start and i'm looking forward to the near future.

Take care
