From fluids to flames, research on the space station is helping advance technology

21-Aug-2015

A study explored the finer points of fluid dynamics, something that is experienced across the planet, but cannot quite be studied as carefully on Earth. A phenomenon called Marangoni convection is one of the fundamental principles of liquid motion and is revealed much more clearly in ...

Engineers identify how to keep surfaces dry underwater

Research team is first to identify surface 'roughness' required to achieve amazing feat

20-Aug-2015

Imagine staying dry underwater for months. Now Northwestern University engineers have examined a wide variety of surfaces that can do just that - and they know why. The research team is the first to identify the ideal "roughness" needed in the texture of a surface to keep it dry for a long period ...

Mosquito-repelling chemicals identified in traditional sweetgrass

19-Aug-2015

Native North Americans have long adorned themselves and their homes with fragrant sweetgrass (Hierochloe odorata), a native plant used in traditional medicine, to repel biting insects, and mosquitoes in particular. Now, researchers report that they have identified the compounds in sweetgrass that ...

Glass paint could keep metal roofs and other structures cool even on sunny days

18-Aug-2015

Sunlight can be brutal. It wears down even the strongest structures, including rooftops and naval ships, and it heats up metal slides and bleachers until they're too hot to use. To fend off damage and heat from the sun's harsh rays, scientists have developed a new, environmentally friendly paint ...

Surprising discoveries about 2-D molybdenum disulfide

Berkeley Lab researchers use campanile probe on promising semiconductor

18-Aug-2015

Scientists with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)'s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have used a nano-optical probe to study the effects of illumination on two-dimensional semiconductors at the molecular level. Working at the Molecular Foundry, a DOE Office of Science User ...

Quantum computing advance locates neutral atoms

14-Aug-2015

For any computer, being able to manipulate information is essential, but for quantum computing, singling out one data location without influencing any of the surrounding locations is difficult. Now, a team of Penn State physicists has a method for addressing individual neutral atoms without ...
