Scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have resorted to the help of nanotechnology to create a new generation of armor, which, according to them, is superior to Kevlar and steel.
Scientists from the Royal Swedish Institute of Technology have created a fully renewable version of transparent wood by adding fruit peel extract to it.
Physicists claim that they have finally come close to creating a nuclear clock — the most accurate time measurement system in the world.
The new device of Russian engineers can be used in the most advanced industries — from nanotechnology to high-precision medical diagnostics.
New experimental data explaining the reasons why diamonds can rain on Neptune and Uranus are presented.
Scientists continue to search for life on exoplanets completely covered by the ocean. To understand in what forms this life can exist, you need to know the smallest details about the conditions of worlds on the surface of which there is not a single piece of land.
Laser radiation usually heats up the material it is directed at. However, there is a way to reverse the phenomenon and cool the substance with a laser beam. The reverse effect will allow you to create sensitive sensors for accelerometers that use lasers.
One of the main issues of philosophy is objectivity. Are our ideas about the world that we form by analyzing information from the senses correct? To answer this question, lengthy philosophical arguments must be supported by a real physical experiment. The development of neurobiology will help to track the processes of perception at the cellular level. There are still few studies in the world that consider such issues from several angles at once, which is why individual works in this field are so valuable.
Speech sounds are formed when air from the lungs passes through the barriers that make up the human vocal apparatus: throat, palate, teeth, tongue, lips. The speed and pressure of the air flow are slightly higher than when breathing. A new study shows whether the coronavirus can use speech as a vehicle for its creepy journey around the planet.
Scientists from the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) and ITMO University, together with colleagues from Germany, Japan and Australia, have developed a method for ultra-precise, fast and high-quality laser processing of halide perovskites (CH3NH3PbI3). They showed how to make solar panels of all colors of the rainbow, stamp nanolasers for future optical transistors by the millions, quickly record information on the surface that only the one to whom it is intended can read.
