  • Improving fabrication process of nano-structures...
    on March 20, 2018 at 8:37 pm

    Researchers have found a more efficient fabricating process to produce semiconductors used in today's electronic devices. They also confirmed that materials other than silicon can be used successfully in the development process that could increase performance of electronic devices. […]

  • What plants can teach us about oil spill...
    on March 20, 2018 at 6:13 pm

    For years, scientists have been inspired by nature to innovate solutions to tricky problems, even oil spills -- manmade disasters with devastating environmental and economic consequences. A new study takes a cue from leaf structure to fabricate material that can separate oil and water, which could lead to safer and more efficient oil spill clean-up methods. […]

  • Taming chaos: Calculating probability in complex...
    on March 20, 2018 at 4:59 pm

    Weather patterns, brain activity and heartbeats each generate lines of complex data. To analyze this data, researchers must first divide up this continuous data into discrete pieces -- a task difficult to perform simply and accurately. Researchers have devised a method to transform data from complex systems, reducing the amount of important information lost, while still using less computing power than existing methods. […]

    A hydrogel that is adept at helping the body heal may also be particularly good at treating wounds related to diabetes. […]

  • Filling lithium-ion cells faster
    on March 20, 2018 at 4:35 pm

    Developers are using neutrons to analyze the filling of lithium ion batteries for hybrid cars with electrolytes. Their experiments show that electrodes are wetted twice as fast in a vacuum as under normal pressure. […]
