May 25, 2017 — The quantum world is both elegant and mysterious. It is a sphere of existence where the laws of physics experienced in everyday life are broken -- particles can exist in two places at once, they can ... read more

High Pressure Key to Lighter, Stronger Metal Alloys, Scientists Find

May 25, 2017 — Subjecting complex metal mixtures called high-entropy alloys to extremely high pressures could lead to finer control over the arrangement of their atoms, which in turn can result in more desirable ... read more

May 24, 2017 — Researchers have developed a new device to map the brain during surgery and distinguish between healthy and diseased tissues. The device provides higher resolution neural readings than existing tools ... read more

May 24, 2017 — A new type of nanocatalyst can result in the long-awaited commercial breakthrough for fuel cell cars. Research results show that it is possible to significantly reduce the need for platinum, a ... read more

Your Mobile Phone Can Reveal Whether You Have Been Exposed to Radiation

May 24, 2017 — In accidents or terror attacks which are suspected to involve radioactive substances, it can be difficult to determine whether people nearby have been exposed to radiation. But by analysing mobile ... read more

May 24, 2017 — Contrary to the condition's name, heart failure doesn't mean the heart has stopped pumping -- it's just not working at full strength. It can often be managed with medications and ... read more

May 24, 2017 — Researchers studied the thermal and electrical properties of one-dimensional crystals composed of tantalum, silicon and tellurium for thermoelectric cooling at temperatures below 250 K (-23°C). The ... read more

May 24, 2017 — Certain materials can be used to rotate the direction in which the light is oscillating. This is known as a 'magneto-optical' effect. One variant of this type of effect has now been ... read more

May 24, 2017 — Is it possible to watch at the level of single cells how fish embryos become trout, carp or salmon? Researchers have successfully combined two very advanced fluorescence microscopy techniques. The ... read more

May 24, 2017 — Dipping a tube into a container filled with water will make the water rise in the tube. This phenomenon is called liquid capillarity. It is responsible for many natural and technical processes, for ... read more

May 24, 2017 — How can we burn natural gas without releasing carbon dioxide (CO2) into the air? This feat is achieved using a special combustion method: chemical looping combustion (CLC). In this process, CO2 can ... read more

Fuel from the Air Technology Provides a Path to New Business for OPEC Countries

May 24, 2017 — Pioneering technology makes OPEC countries prime regions to produce synthetic fuels. This could be a key asset in phasing out fossil fuels after the Paris Agreement, while also keeping some of the ... read more

May 24, 2017 — A novel handheld device, known as CLiKX, has been developed for the treatment of a condition called Otitis Media with Effusion (OME), or ‘glue ear’, which is the leading cause of hearing loss and ... read more

May 24, 2017 — In some businesses – like supermarkets and restaurants – local restrictions on nighttime deliveries leave distributors no choice but to dispatch trucks during morning rush hours. But lifting ... read more

May 24, 2017 — A new type of nanocatalyst can result in the long-awaited commercial breakthrough for fuel cell cars. Research results show that it is possible to significantly reduce the need for platinum, a ... read more

May 24, 2017 — Lithium-oxygen systems could someday outperform today's lithium-ion batteries because of their potential for high energy density. However, a number of important issues, such as their poor ... read more

May 24, 2017 — Proteins perform vital functions, they digest food and fight infections. They are in fact nano-machines, each one of them designed to perform a specific task. But how did they evolve to match those ... read more

May 24, 2017 — Researchers have succeeded in deriving a theoretical formula that quantitatively predicts the wetting and spreading behavior of droplets that collide with the flat surface of a solid material. In the ... read more

May 24, 2017 — The surface of minuscule water drops with a 100 nm size is surprisingly ordered, new research shows. At room temperature, the surface water molecules of these droplets have much stronger interactions ... read more

May 23, 2017 — Since the global supply chain for additive manufacturing (AM)-- also called 3-D printing-- requires companies to share CAD files within the organization or with outside parties via email or cloud, ... read more
