Researchers from the UK have successfully made a raised object appear flat to electromagnetic waves, meaning that they are a step closer to having a full-blown cloaking device that can hide objects. While the new findings are still far from a Harry Potter-style invisibility cloak, the successful experiment might help...
Researchers at the University College of Southeast Norway are cruel people who like to play with the lives of lesser organisms. They're also kind of cool scientists who know how to have fun while researching microorganisms' hunting habits. The evidence for both these cases? A small game of Pac-Man set up...
Considering the problems faced in the upkeep of a car, the list of those problems is endless. If we look at the steps taken to eliminate these problems, one among them is making your car waterproof. This can be done by using some sprays and paints which will make...
This new camera can peer through thick materials and behind tiny microchips, even ones that are hidden under heaps of dense silicon components. A team of physicists led by Rayko Stantchev, an imaging researcher at the University of Exeter in the UK, have just developed a radically new type of...
A team of researchers at the University of Cambridge, UK, has developed a nanoscale engine, just a few billionths of a meter in size, which uses light to power itself. The prototype nano-engine is made of small charged particles of gold, bound together with temperature-responsive polymers in the form of...
Samsung Electronics announced that it had begun mass producing the industry's first 10-nanometer class, 8-gigabit DDR4 DRAM chips and the modules derived from them. Samsung opened the door to 10nm-class DRAM for the first time in the industry after overcoming technical challenges in DRAM scaling. Samsung's roll-out of the 10nm-class DRAM...
A spikey, prickly grass found in the Australian outback is being farmed commercially to manufacture condoms that are strong but as thin as the human hair. Researchers from the University of Queensland have developed a way of extracting nanocellulose from the grass and using it as an additive in latex...
A new study of the exotic "Motors" that bacteria use to swim reveals details of how they "Swim" that may make it possible to design specific drugs that sabotage the flagella in targeted bacterial species. Their visualizations of these motors explain the differences in swimming ability, mathematically accounting for differences...
Splitting water is a two-step process, and in a new study, researchers have performed one of these steps with 100% efficiency. The results shatter the previous record of 60% for hydrogen production with visible light, and emphasize that future research should focus on the other step in order to realize...
Various kinds of turbulence can stir up this hot soup of particles and dissipate some of the intense heat, and a major problem has been to understand and predict exactly how this turbulence works, and thus how to overcome it. A long-standing discrepancy between predictions and observed results in test...
