Engineers fine-tune the sensitivity of nano-chemical sensor: Tweaking graphene chemical sensors may open up many applications
A tiny robotic insect that can fly like a bee and is similar in size was developed over long years and then successfully test-flown by Harvard roboticists.
There's a whole new meaning to the term "power plant." Researchers are developing a new technology that allows them to harvest electricity directly from these green photosynthesizers. It could mean a whole new way to harvest sustainable solar energy.
If you wanted to catch a glimpse of how our Earth has changed over time, now you can. Google has expanded its mapping platform by launching a new project called Timelapse. This latest project warps you about 30 years into the past and allows you to see how the planet has changed since then.
Quantum computers have long been heralded as the theoretical supercomputers of our age. Now, one researcher has discovered that quantum computing can be far speedier than traditional computing--in certain areas.
With new technique developed by Columbia Engineering researchers managed to encapsulate a single water molecule inside a football-shaped carbon (C60) molecular structure.
Scientists are developing high-brilliance laser beam sources, which enable the laser welding of plastics for improved and rapid production of complexly-shaped parts, and could therefore lead to important advances in the manufacturing of polymeric products.
Silicon-based flexible large scale integrated circuits (LSI) which can be used for in vivo (implanted) bio-medical wireless communication were successfully developed and tested by a team led by Professor Keon Jae Lee from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at KAIST, South Korea.
Your DNA could be ready to be sequenced in minutes, thanks to some new technology. Researches have created a device that can extract human DNA from fluid samples in a simpler and more efficient way than current methods.
On Thursday 25 April, the morning silence at the Institute of Plasma Physics (ASIPP) in Hefei, China, was broken by the noise of a high powered trailer. Inside the superconductor shop of ASIPP, workers were busy preparing to load the 737 meters of dummy conductor for ITER, the international experime...
In a breakthrough that can drastically increase the resolution and detail of medical imaging, a fluorescent dye that enables high-resolution (about 1 micron) 3D images of the cerebral vascular system has been synthesized by researchers at the Laboratoire de Chimie (CNRS) in France.
A new kind of extremely useful micro-device, a so called “piezo-MEMS” -- standing for piezoelectric microelectromechanical system -- is able to convert ambient vibrations directly into electrical energy and will come to market this year.
