Coatings with Nanoparticles that Interact with Sunlight and Eliminate Contaminants are Developed

May 30, 2012 9:35 am | Comments

Researchers of the UPNA-Public University of Navarre have developed a type of coating for construction materials. It is based on nanoparticles that interact with sunlight and trigger a chemical reaction that eliminates certain air pollutants. It is reckoned that the reduction in atmospheric pollution could be 90% of nitrogen oxides, 80% of hydrocarbons, and 75% of carbon monoxides emitted.

Microreactors to Produce Explosive Materials

May 30, 2012 9:31 am | Comments

The larger the reaction vessel, the quicker products can be made – or so you might think. Microreactors show just how wrong that assumption is: in fact, they can be used to produce explosive materials – nitroglycerine, for instance – around ten times faster than in conventional vessels, and much more safely as well.

Tongue Analysis Software Developed at MU Uses Ancient Chinese Medicine to Warn of Disease

May 29, 2012 6:04 am | Comments

For 5,000 years, the Chinese have used a system of medicine based on the flow and balance of positive and negative energies in the body. In this system, the appearance of the tongue is one of the measures used to classify the overall physical status of the body, or zheng . Now, University of Missouri researchers have developed computer software that combines the ancient practices and modern medicine by providing an automated system for analyzing images of the tongue.

NTU and I²R Scientists Invent Revolutionary Chipset for High-speed Wireless Data Transfer

May 29, 2012 5:37 am | by Here is a new microchip that can transfer data the size of 80 MP3 song files (or 250 megabytes) wirelessly between mobile devices, in the flick of a second. | Comments

Data can now be transmitted 1,000 times faster than Bluetooth Or how about transferring a typical 2-hour, 8-gigabyte DVD movie in just half a minute compared to 8.5 hours on Bluetooth? Such unprecedented speeds on the wireless platform are now a reality as scientists from the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and A*STAR’s Institute for Infocomm Research (I²R) have developed a revolutionary microchip that can transmit large volumes of data at ultra-high speeds of 2 Gigabits per second  (or 1,000 times faster than Bluetooth^).

Sensing the Infrared: Researchers Improve IR Detectors with Single-walled Carbon Nanotubes

May 29, 2012 5:20 am | Comments

Whether used in telescopes or optoelectronic communications, infrared detectors must be continuously cooled to avoid being overwhelmed by stray thermal radiation. Now, a team of researchers from Peking University, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Duke University (USA) is harnessing the remarkable properties of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) to create highly sensitive, "uncooled" photovoltaic infrared detectors.
