Girls who play video games are three times more likely to choose physical science, technology, engineering or maths (PSTEM) degrees compared to their non-gaming counterparts, according to new research from the University of Surrey.
Through a collaborative research effort, an Army researcher has made a novel contribution to cloud security and the management of cyberspace risks.
We live in an age of long-range information. Research is turning towards the use of lasers which have several advantages. However, this new technology faces a major problem: clouds. Due to their density, clouds stop the laser beams and scramble the transfer of information. Researchers at UNIGE have devised an ultra-hot laser that creates a temporary hole in the cloud, which lets the laser beam containing the information pass through.
Ground penetrating radar measures the amount of moisture in soil quickly and easily. Researchers' calculations from the data informs agricultural water use and climate models.
Scientists from EPFL and ETH Zurich have developed an ultra-light glove -- weighing less than 8 grams per finger- that enables users to feel and manipulate virtual objects. Their system provides extremely realistic haptic feedback and could run on a battery, allowing for unparalleled freedom of movement.
UK researchers behind a potential 'universal' liquid biopsy blood test for cancer detection have licensed the technology to an industrial partner to take it to market.
A recent study, affiliated with South Korea's Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) has introduced a novel electric vehicle (EV) battery technology that is more energy-efficient than gasoline-powered engines.
An international team of researchers, affiliated with South Korea's Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) has demonstrated a new technique for accelerating electrons to very high energies over short distances.
An international team of researchers, affiliated with South Korea's Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) introduced a simple technique to fabricate full-color perovskite LEDs.
Army scientists have developed a novel algorithm that enables localization of humans and robots in areas where GPS is unavailable.
