Astronomers using the new Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) have imaged a region around a young star where dust particles can grow by clumping together. This is the first time that such a dust trap has been clearly observed and modelled. It solves a long-standing mystery about how dust particles in discs grow to larger sizes so that they can eventually form comets, planets and other rocky bodies. The results are published in the journal Science on 7 June 2013.
Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, unveiled a portfolio of low noise amplifiers (LNAs) that provide best-in-class noise figure, a critical component to boosting weak incoming signals for today’s 4G wireless infrastructure as well as diverse broad market systems including GPS, broadband, military and satellite communications.
