Synthesized microporous 3-D graphene-like carbons: IBS research team create carbon synthesis using zeolites as a template
Graphene, an allotrope of carbon, discovered more than a decade ago has led to myriad research that seeks to unlock its vast potential. Zeolites, commonly used microporous solid catalysts in the petro...
How can a gecko move across a ceiling upside down? Two mechanisms are responsible: Adhesion via billions of extremely fine hairs on its feet, which enable it to stick to ceilings and walls. And as soo...
No need in supercomputers: Russian scientists suggest a PC to solve complex problems tens of times faster than with massive supercomputers
A group of physicists from the Skobeltsyn Institute of Nuclear Physics, the Lomonosov Moscow State University, has learned to use personal computer for calculations of complex equations of quantum mec...
Surprising qualities of insulator ring surfaces: Surface phenomena in ring-shaped topological insulators are just as controllable as those in spheres made of the same material
Topological insulators behave like insulators at their core and allow good conductivity on their surface. They owe their characteristics to a new quantum state within the material discovered in 2007 a...
The spread of cancer from a tumor's original location to other parts of the body can play a major role in whether the disease turns deadly. Many steps in this process, called metastasis, remain murky...
Oxford Instruments and Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory collaborate to develop HTS magnet technology components for high field superconducting magnet systems
Oxford Instruments, a leading provider of high technology tools and systems for industry and research, has entered into a collaboration agreement with the High Field Laboratory (HLD) at Helmholtz-Zent...
Texas A&M Chemist Says Trapped Electrons To Blame For Lack Of Battery Efficiency: Forget mousetraps todays scientists will get the cheese if they manage to build a better battery
An international team led by Texas A&M University chemist Sarbajit Banerjee is one step closer, thanks to new research published today (June 28) in the journal Nature Communications that has the poten...
Building a smart cardiac patch: 'Bionic' cardiac patch could one day monitor and respond to cardiac problems
Scientists and doctors in recent decades have made vast leaps in the treatment of cardiac problems - particularly with the development in recent years of so-called "cardiac patches," swaths of enginee...
Porous hybrid composite helps reduce capacity decay rates by solving the 'polysulphide shuttling problem'.
New platform could be used to monitor and stimulate cardiac activity post-surgery.
