Tests of a new compact high-power laser have given researchers the opportunity to film the passage of an ultrashort laser pulse through the air. The film shows the journey of a light projectile at an extremely slow rate, similar to that watched on cinema screens by science-fiction aficionados.
An international team of scientists have become the first ever researchers to successfully reach temperatures below minus 272.15 degrees Celsius - only just above absolute zero - using magnetic molecules.
Researchers have developed the new BiogasPlus, a technology which allows increasing the production of biogas by 200% with a controlled introduction of iron oxide nanoparticles to the process of organic waste treatment.
Tiny rod-like single crystals that act as miniature dual-color barcodes have been synthesized by researchers who then demonstrated the potential of these barcodes for two very different applications: anti-counterfeiting measures and cell tracking.
A three-year, $400,369 National Science Foundation grant has been awarded to build a handheld device that could analyze a person's breath to reveal whether certain dangerous gasses are present that need more immediate medical attention.
Scientists have developed and patented a nanofluid improving thermal conductivity at temperatures up to 400 C without assuming an increase in costs or a remodeling of the infrastructure. This progress has important applications in sectors such as chemical, petrochemical and energy, thus becoming a useful technology in all industrial applications using heat transfer systems such as solar power plants, nuclear power plants, combined-cycle power plants and heating, among other.
Researchers have developed a method to separate nanomaterials by size, therefore providing a consistency in properties otherwise not available. Moreover, the solution came straight from the life sciences - biochemistry, in fact.
