Collaboration between government and startups could help meet the climate challenge while growing small businesses. Findings could inform discussions on Green New Deal or any 'forward-looking policy package,' say researchers.
A new system for synthesizing quantum dots across the entire spectrum of visible light drastically reduces manufacturing costs, can be tuned on demand to any color and allows for real-time process monitoring to ensure quality control.
Strong enough not only for use in impact protection systems in cars, but able to absorb the shock waves produced by a detonation. Those are just some of the properties shown by the metallic foams developed by materials scientists Stefan Diebels and Anne Jung at Saarland University. Their super lightweight and extremely strong metal foams can be customized for a wide range of applications. The inspiration for the new foam system came from nature: bones.
The Purdue team created wearable technology to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy. The Purdue team invented a liquid-metal-inclusion based triboelectric nanogenerator, called LMI-TENG.
A Purdue University team created a method for applying a designer surface-active agent to the surface of a metal to make it easier to cut and shape the material into parts and pieces.
A technology that has maximized space intensity by eliminating color filter from an image sensor has been developed. The National Research Foundation of Korea (Chairman Jung Hye Rho) announced that DGIST Professor Dae Sung Chung's research team developed a color filter-free full-color image sensor using an interferometer electrode.
The development of a simply made and easy-to-use planting device could make growing important herbs and beneficial insect-attracting plants significantly more efficient and effective. The low-cost tool, known as the Slide Hammer Seeder (a jab-style seeder), gives farmers and gardeners specific control in sowing plants with very small seeds.
A group of researchers at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid has recently developed a new software aimed at the analysis of energy generation systems based on kites and drones. In a recently published scientific article, they used the software to study the behavior of these systems while transforming the kinetic energy of the wind into useful electrical energy.
An interdisciplinary team of researchers at NRL and the Air Force Research Laboratory have developed a way to directly write quantum light sources, which emit a single photon of light at a time, into monolayer semiconductors.
New research shows that the Blue Room, an immersive virtual reality treats 45 percent of children with autism freeing them from their fears and phobias -- and that the treatment lasts.
