What's 3 Billion Times Colder Than Deep Space? Fermions Produced By Special Unitary Spin Rates

Quantum magnetism exploration is getting a boost from atoms about 3 billion times colder than interstellar space. Space is cold, of course, but is warmed by the afterglow from the Big Bang. A Kyoto team instead used lasers to cool its fermions, atoms of yt ...

A Simple Design Of High Frequency Seismic Data Resolution Filter

Seismic sections are usually subjected to some processing sequence for noise reduction. If the noise has appreciable energy outside the frequency range of the useful signal, these sequences are effective and if accurate NMO and STATIC are done, data clust ...
