MIT researchers have created a new method which will increase the amount of energy that is channelled from sunlight. This new technique involves a quantum process which increase the number of electrons produced when light strikes a metal-dielectric interface, like aluminum oxide.
Researchers have created an innovative temperature sensor that is printable, flexible and very light to carry. The new sensor can be used in health care and welfare applications, according to researchers at the University of Tokyo.
How do tiny insects and other animals clean themselves? Without this ability, these creatures would soon find themselves unable to properly function. Now, scientists have taken a closer look and have found that hair plays a huge role in keeping creatures filth-free.
A sea urchin, of all animals, has spurred an idea for new, lightweight materials. Scientists have taken a closer look at a sea urchin cousin, known as the heart urchin, as the inspiration for strong, lightweight materials.
A new telescope peering into "near space" may help unravel the mysteries of dark matter. Scientists hope to use the new telescope, which examines space within a few thousand light-years of Earth- to seek answers related to the field of high-energy astrophysics.
A new system may revolutionize the way people interact with virtual reality. The system, called BitDrones, allows users to explore virtual 3D information by interacting with physical self-levitating building blocks.
A new implantable, wireless device may be able to block pain signals in the body and the spinal cord before the signals reach the brain. The new device could be huge when it comes to battling chronic pain.
A new study zeroes in on Twitter and showing how positive emotions spread like a virus on social media.
Researchers have created a new nanostructuring technology, which can control both heat and electricity simultaneously. This new study paves the way to potentially convert wasted heat to into electricity energy, according to researchers from Osaka University in Japan.
Harnessing wave power may be the energy of the future. Carnegie and Western Power are collaborating to deliver a world first wave-integrated island microgrid project.
Augmented reality may just be the future of gaming and interactive exploration.
Researchers have created a new type of glass that is as strong as steel. The researchers implemented a new method by adding extra amounts of an oxide of aluminum and a laser technique. The new glass is transparent and colorless like normal glass.
