Researchers produce blackest black material to date

Science
Sept. 13 (UPI) -- Material engineers at MIT have produced the blackest black material to date, 10 times blacker than previous record-black materials. The material is composed of microscopic filaments of carbon. In the lab, scientists grew a forest of vertically aligned carbon nanotubes on a chlorine-etched aluminum foil substrate. The foil-based patch of carbon trees captures 99.96 percent of incoming light, a new record. Researchers described the new material this week in the journal ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces. The authors of the new paper don't expect to hold the record for very long. Eventually, the material's creators predict, material scientists will design a material that absorbs 100 percent of light. "Our material is 10 times blacker than anything that's ever been repor...

Technology
Many modern gadgets can be hacked to produce deafening and disorienting sounds, research has revealed.Security researcher Matt Wixey found a range of devices had little protection to stop themselves being turned into "offensive" low-grade, cyber-weapons.Mr Wixey tested laptops, mobile phones, headphones, a PA system and several types of speakers. The weaknesses could cause physical harm, harass individuals or disrupt larger organisations, he said. Annoying tonesMr Wixey, who is a head of research at PWC's cyber-security practice, said he conducted the experiments as part of PhD work into the ways that malware can directly cause physical harm.He sought to find out if the volume and speaker controls of the devices could be manipula...
