  • A new twist on an old tool lets scientists use light to study and control matter with 1,000 times better resolution and precision than previously possible. Physicists have demonstrated "ponderomotive spectroscopy," which allows researchers to peer more deeply into the structure of atoms and direct their behavior at a much finer scale. The new technique could have applications in quantum computing.

  • You might resemble or act more like your mother, but a novel research study reveals that mammals are genetically more like their dads. Specifically, the research shows that although we inherit equal amounts of genetic mutations from our parents -- the mutations that make us who we are and not some other person -- we actually 'use' more of the DNA that we inherit from our dads.

  • Researchers describe how postmortem brain slices can be 'read' to determine how a rat was trained to behave in response to specific sounds, a new article suggests. The work provides one of the first examples of how specific changes in the activity of individual neurons encode particular acts of learning and memory in the brain.

What is e-Arumbu?

e-Arumbu is an informational website which is developed by the Science Union of Jaffna,Vembadi Girls' High School.

How often do you launch this?

We launch this once a year during the months October and November.The science day of the school is celebrated during this period.This is also a part of the science day.

What made you to start this continuous process?

We annually release a magazine called "Arumbu".However it doesn't reach many people as the number of copies are limited for a certain extent.It made us to think something globally and technologically.We also had the thought to produce a talented web developing team every year.

Do you publish the articles of the outsiders?

At the moment,No.  However We will consider this in the near future.
