These findings could improve predictions for which patients could be susceptible to different types of infections.
In 2014, Villanova Univ. researchers reported that datacenters were major source of energy waste. In fact, more than 2% of the U.S.’s total electricity usage can be attributed to datacenters. And almost half of that power was solely used for cooling the datacenters’ electronics.
When cold milk is poured into a hot cup of tea, a temperature equilibrium is reached very quickly. The milk droplets and the tea particles interact, and after a few moments they all have the same average energy.
The success story of information processing by way of moving electrons is slowly coming to an end. The trend towards more and more compact chips constitutes a major challenge for manufacturers, since the increasing miniaturization creates partly unsolvable physical problems.
Scientists from the University College London made a new discovery regarding the HIV virus.
The Heiltsuk First Nation people have used this material to treat a swath of maladies like ulcerative colitis, arthritis, and skin irritation.
The octopus looks more like an underwater tent, its web and tentacles spread apart, its mantle raised, and its skin darkened. It approaches a second octopus, which is positioned low near the bay’s floor.
Last month, the CIA highlighted 10 documents that “The X-Files” characters Agent Fox Mulder and Agent Dana Scully would find particularly interesting.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Hyperloop Team came out victorious following this past weekend’s SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition Design Weekend, which was held at Texas A&M Univ.
The quantity of data exchanged via communications networks around the globe is growing at a breathtaking rate. The volume of data for wired and mobile communications is currently increasing by 23% and 57% respectively every year. It is impossible to predict when this growth will end.
A team of researchers has recently pioneered in developing a new simple nanowire manufacturing technique that uses self-catalytic growth process assisted by thermal decomposition of natural gas. According to the research team, this method is simple, reproducible, size-controllable, and cost-effective in that lithium-ion batteries could also benefit from it.
Research conducted by the Quantum Dynamics Unit at Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology graduate University (OIST) could represent an important step in understanding two-dimensional semiconductors. The Unit's latest paper describes anomalies in the behavior of electrons in electrons on liquid helium two-dimensional system.
Scientists have invented a new soft gripper that uses electroadhesion: flexible electrode flaps that act like a thumb-index duo. It can pick up fragile objects of arbitrary shape and stiffness, like an egg, a water balloon or paper.
After six years of painstaking effort, a group of materials scientists believe the tiny sheets of the semiconductor zinc oxide they're growing could have huge implications for the future of a host of electronic and biomedical devices.
U.S. expenditures in research and development (R&D) rose to $456.1 billion in 2013 -- a $20.7 billion increase over the previous year, according to a report from the National Science Foundation's National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics.
