Researchers have identified the presence of a confining 'cage' in which a magnetic rope forms, causing solar eruptions.
Researchers have found that, unlike conventional plates, the titanium fiber plates do not cause bone embrittlement after close contact with the bone for prolonged periods.
This could eliminate the need for plate extraction and the associate surgical risks.
It is the resistance of this cage to the attack of the rope that determines the power and type of the upcoming flare.
This work has enabled the scientists to develop a model capable of predicting the maximum energy that can be released during a solar flare.
This radiation reaction — demonstrated in the lab for the first time — is thought to occur around objects such as black holes and quasars.
For the first time, patented titanium fiber plates developed by engineers for medical use were put to the test in an animal model.
Just one phenomenon may underlie all solar eruptions.
By hitting electrons with an ultra-intense laser, researchers have revealed dynamics that go beyond 'classical' physics and hint at quantum effects.
