Micromachines are becoming more functional, and they are so small that the usual rules of thermodynamics don't always apply. Researchers would like to understand and control quantities such as entropy at the nanoscale. Now a team has implemented a so-called Maxwell's demon to control the entropy in a carbon nucleus using magnetic fields and an extra hydrogen nucleus.
A new implementation of a Maxwell’s demon can control entropy production in a quantum-mechanical system that is driven out of thermal equilibrium.

So using hydrocarbons to manipulate gamma radiation in cryogenic state polar magnetically? This seems to be applied at transfer potential to kinetic energy. Maxwell's demon in nature is gamma radiation in my research of other scientists work applications. Radiation fission cold fusion. Planck's theories funnelling solar plasma magnetosphere. I am not scientist but have studied James clerk Maxwell in his time and place. Associations Tesla thermoelectric as well. Not new science. It has been science applied by many get hijacked by those who want to dominate or destroy. Magnetic levitation in high speed train used these theories.

Head over to the APS Facebook page to enter the Future of Physics Days t-shirt caption contest! The deadline to submit a caption on Facebook is Sunday, November 27. The winning caption will be featured on the Future of Physics Days t-shirts for undergrads who attend the APS March or April meetings.

Modern technology has allowed us to explore our universe in ways we never could before. We can see pictures beamed back to us from distant planets and "hear" massive black holes merging. The universe is a complex place, but what makes it so complex? Was ours the only "big bang"? Are we alone? Is our universe unique?

Explore these questions and more, as we present Lord Martin Rees and "From Mars to the Multiverse," a free public lecture in Washington, DC.

Saturday, January 28, 2017
7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. EST
Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, D.C.
Public Lecture: From Mars to the Multiverse, Martin Rees

The Hall coefficient of a material tells you how it will react to a magnetic field when electric current is flowing. The Hall effect is used as to make a magnetic field sensor in smartphone compasses and other devices. Now researchers have produced a structure whose Hall coefficient is the reverse of the material it's made from, meaning the voltage generated by a magnetic field has the opposite sign. Combining structures with opposite Hall coefficients could lead to new and improved magnetic sensors.
A metamaterial that looks like chainmail has a Hall coefficient whose sign is flipped compared to the material it’s made from.

APS and IBM Research co-sponsor paid summer internships for undergraduate women and underrepresented minority students. The internships are typically 10-weeks long and are located at one of three IBM locations (Almaden in California, Watson Research in New York, or Austin Research Lab in Texas). Applications are due February 15.

Entangling a large number of photons—particles of light—is essential to making one version of a quantum computer, which in principle would be much more powerful than an ordinary computer. A new record of ten photons beats the previous record by 25% but is still a long way from competing with today's classical technology. Still, the extra photons should allow researchers to perform more complicated operations as they continue to improve the system.
An entangled polarization state of ten photons sets a new record for multiphoton entanglement.

Working to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics
Introduction
The American Physical Society (APS) is a non-profit membership organization working to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics through its outstanding research journals, scientific meetings, and education, outreach, advocacy and international activities. APS represents more than 50,000 members, including physicists in academia, national laboratories and industry in the United States and throughout the world. Society offices are located in College Park, Maryland (Headquarters), Ridge, New York, and Washington, DC.
