May 2, 2016 — A new method to improve the aggressive intensity of cavitation without the need to increase the input power is under development, report scientists. Cavitation -- the formation, growth and subsequent ... read more

New Technique Spots Active Motion in Cells

Apr. 28, 2016 — A noninvasive data analysis technique has been developed that can discern whether an object's random motion is actively or thermally ... read more

Recovering Energy from Power Plants

Apr. 27, 2016 — Researchers are harnessing the energy of moving seawater that is being used to cool a power plant in ... read more

Apr. 20, 2016 — Particle atomic layer deposition (p-ALD) is highlighted as a technology that can create new and exciting designer core/shell particles to be used as building blocks for the next generation of complex ... read more

Apr. 19, 2016 — Liquid water is a very good heat storage medium -- anyone with a Thermos bottle knows that. However, as soon as water boils or freezes, its storage capacity drops precipitously. Physicists have now ... read more

Apr. 19, 2016 — In many plumbing and pipework systems in general, there are junctions and connections to move liquids such as water in different directions, but have you ever thought about what happens to the water ... read more

Animal-Inspired Whiskers Key to New Navigation Technology

Apr. 15, 2016 — Researchers have developed artificial whiskers that allow robots to “see” the surroundings in dark and murky places by analysing the way the whiskers respond to water and air ... read more

Apr. 15, 2016 — A new paper has been published on the unusual microstructure of smectics -- liquid crystals whose molecules are arranged in layers and form ellipses and hyperbolas -- and their similarity to ... read more

Apr. 14, 2016 — Seeking an alternative, a team of researchers is looking to graphene oxide -- graphene's much cheaper, imperfect form. Graphene oxide is graphene that is also covered with oxygen and hydrogen ... read more

Apr. 14, 2016 — Nanoparticles are known to self-assemble at the air-water interface into large 2D sheets. Researchers discovered that an organic coating on the nanoparticles differs slightly between the two sides of ... read more

Apr. 13, 2016 — When processing milk and juice, the food industry is required to maintain high standards of hygiene. This includes keeping the number of microbes at a minimum during the whole process so that there ... read more

Apr. 13, 2016 — A successful new simulation method for characterizing carbon dioxide transfer and storage in natural rock reservoirs has been developed by researchers. The team scanned rocks with X-ray microcomputed ... read more

Apr. 12, 2016 — If you go out after a rain, you may notice spider webs glistening with water droplets. The soggy webs resemble human-made meshes for fog collection: They both have thin fibers that collect water from ... read more

Apr. 11, 2016 — In phase transitions, for instance between water and water vapor, the motional energy competes with the attractive energy between neighboring molecules. Physicists have now studied quantum phase ... read more

Apr. 11, 2016 — Researchers model defects found in raw silicates used to make cement and affect the amount of energy used to manufacture concrete. Concrete manufacture is a major contributor of carbon dioxide ... read more

Apr. 8, 2016 — Water molecules are 10,000 times more sensitive to ions than previously thought, new research shows. Water molecules are made up of one negatively charged oxygen atom and two positively charged ... read more

Apr. 8, 2016 — Researchers call for consistent and standardized testing of superhydrophobic, i.e. extremely water-repellent, ... read more

Apr. 8, 2016 — A new resin inhibits growth, reproduction and transfer of yeast and fungi, and used as cement it can adhere to metal surfaces, glass or ... read more

Oil and Gas Wastewater Disposal May Harm West Virginia Waterways

Apr. 7, 2016 — Unconventional oil and gas operations combine directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing, or 'fracking,' to release natural gas and oil from underground rock. Studies have centered on ... read more

Apr. 6, 2016 — High-tech sponges of the infinitely small, nanoporous materials can capture and release gaseous or liquid chemicals in a controlled way. Scientists have developed and described one of these ... read more
