Researchers at the University of New Hampshire led by assistant professor of chemical engineering Kyung Jae Jeong were trying to improve the efficacy of hydrogel injections and make them more useful in clinics. In result, they came up with a material that is very cheap and easy to produce and moreover heals wounds faster than … Continue reading UNH scientists created inexpensive injectable hydrogel for fast wound healing.
Engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) presented a material capable of self-regeneration. He independently tightens the cracks appearing on it. The basis of the ability to restore new material is the process of photosynthesis. With it, plants turn light into carbon dioxide and oxygen. The researchers connected the chloroplasts responsible for photosynthesis in … Continue reading MIT scientists have created a material, the cracks on which are tightened themselves.
The brainchild of UC Davis scientists Simon Cherry and Ramsey Badawi, EXPLORER is a combined positron emission tomography (PET) and x-ray computed tomography (CT) scanner that can image the entire body at the same time. Because the machine captures radiation far more efficiently than other scanners, EXPLORER can produce an image in as little as … Continue reading The world’s first medical imaging scanner that can capture a 3-D picture of the whole human body at once
Every electronic device requires the basic building blocks – transistors. Researchers at RMIT University led by Ph.D. candidate Ms. Shruti Nirantar created an alternative type of transistor which may lead to the new generation of super-powerful electronics. Nowadays, the progress of transistor technology is slowing down despite so-called Moore's Law which suggests that the number … Continue reading Engineers made a new type of transistor for nanochips.
A research team led by Dr. Saida Bogus of the Kuban State Medical University is trying to develop a new pharmacological remedy for various heart rhythm disorders. Nowadays, a lot of people all around the world are suffering from cardiovascular diseases and other similar complications. Moreover, according to statistics, 17 million of them die each … Continue reading Scientists found a new remedy for an unhealthy heart.
The researchers of the Laboratory of Lightweight Materials and Structures of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University faced the problem while they were 3D printing. The process of the mathematical modeling takes lots of time and sometimes simple calculations could take a week. In order to get rid of this problem they developed neural … Continue reading Researchers from Saint-Petersburg created neural network which will speed up the process of 3D modeling.
A team of chemists from Stanford Institute of Chemistry, Engineering & Medicine for Human Health is trying to develop a new way of battling infections with antibiotics. They have already achieved great results in the laboratory and claimed to keep on improving their technique in order to make it reliable and eventually applicable in clinics. … Continue reading Chemists created a new way to fight against infections.
Researchers from ITMO University and Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences are working on a microwave antenna that would lead to a creation of super-sensitive magnetic field detectors. Aside from having high sensitivity, these devices should operate at low input and at room temperature, and also be compact and cheap. The main … Continue reading A new microwave antenna can make magnetometers super-sensitive.
A team of researchers from the Department of Mechanical Engineering led by Associate Professor Hai Minh Duong and Professor Nhan Phan-Thien in collaboration with Dr. Xiwen Zhang from the Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology created a very useful technology that can also solve some global environmental issues. The scientists got an idea of using plastic … Continue reading Scientists managed to convert plastic waste into the aerogel.
The techers at the University of Waterloo have taken a huge step towards making smart devices that do not use batteries or require charging. They found a way to hack radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, the ubiquitous squiggly ribbons of metal with a tiny chip found in various objects, and give the devices the ability … Continue reading Canadian researchers are close to creating batteryless smart devices.
