MIT scientists have created a material, the cracks on which are tightened themselves.

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.

Researchers from Saint-Petersburg created neural network which will speed up the process of 3D modeling.

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.

New devices could help turn atmospheric CO2 into useful supplies.

A group of scientists from Stanford University headed by chemist Matthew Kanan has developed a device which enables to transform a received CO into beneficial compounds a way more effectively than ever before. The scientists claim that they learned how to use 84% of the carbon monoxide, which they obtain from carbon dioxide– the colorless, … Continue reading New devices could help turn atmospheric CO2 into useful supplies.

New softwood utilization method will bring to bear up to 50% of waste.

Finnish researchers from VVT created a method of full utilization of softwood bark. Pure tannins what are a various organic compounds including amino acids and alkaloids, can be used for resins. And the left fibre fraction can be used for production fertilizers and sugar. Usually tannins extracts by hot water extraction. Using such process you … Continue reading New softwood utilization method will bring to bear up to 50% of waste.

Super cheap, super compact, super accurate: russian physicists have upgraded a usual diode laser to an ultra-precise instrument.

A group of researchers from the Russian Quantum Center (RQC), the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU), and Samsung R&D Institute Russia have developed a method for drastically narrowing the emission spectrum of an ordinary diode laser, like that in a laser pointer. This makes their device a useful … Continue reading Super cheap, super compact, super accurate: russian physicists have upgraded a usual diode laser to an ultra-precise instrument.
